Here at Buddy, we aren’t simply co-workers and business partners;
we’re a group of buddies looking to work together to deliver fun and exciting games.
We hope our products will help people make their own buddies too!
Buddy has the following three policies for developing products.

・Simple × Deep : Easy to understand, but also profound
・Excitement First : Offer exciting experiences
・Communication : Provide potential for friendships born from “conversation”

Cooperate with friends to confront powerful enemies, occasionally competing with friends, leading to “communication” that can arise as a result of “sharing excitement.” Buddy delivers breathless excitement.

This new card game has simple rules: players choose three cards from their hands and the higher number cards win. This game appears to be simple, but there is actually great depth in strategic thinking and in anticipating your opponent’s moves. It doesn’t take much time and anyone can learn to play.
Let’s play “TRiPAL”!
