Gabsee is a gaming startup currently working on the Stories One title. We want to build virtual friendships between people that will be like the ones in real life : strong, lasting and with shared memories worth remembering.

We are developing Stories One, a Social Adventure game for building tight-knit communities. More than a game, it is a whole world where you will experience thrilling adventures with a persistent group of players, decide and write the story of your community. You will be living the Next-Gen of TV shows : Don't just watch it... Be a part of it together !

We gather players in towns of 1000 people, where they play as high-schoolers in the 80s investigating strange events that occur in the region to save their town from catastrophe.

REAL VALUE : We focus on building real value, not perceived one
SMART EXPLORER : We are smart explorers and we want to be the first
TEAM FIRST : We are all actively dedicated to making Gabsee the dream team
