Both Woomi and Woomi Wins were handcrafted with love. To make Woomi, I learned to crochet. To make Woomi Wins, I learned to code; a process I'll detail in a future blog post. Until then, I hope you pick up the app and enjoy interacting with Woomi's action-packed plot to win the world!
1.5 years later, Woomi approves.
