A Norwegian Game Development Firm
BitPet® started as the idea xPet by Alf Inge Wang, co-founder of Kahoot!, and professor of game technology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The idea for the game is based on research in co-located social engagement using game technology, and how video games can motivate physical activity. The concept went through a feasibility study at NTNU School of Entrepreneurship, where Mathias Grønstad studied. We started prototyping the game in early 2020, and the BitPet company was founded in September 2020. The project has received funding from; StartupLab, The Research Council of Norway, NTNU Discovery, Innovation Norway, The European Space Agency, and The Norwegian Space Agency. BitPet also placed 2nd out of 110 entries in the MyGalileoSolution contest hosted by the European GNSS Agency. BitPet® is currently a registered trademark in the EU, USA, UK, and Norway.
