What is Oka Luda ?
Oka Luda, a small board games publisher, 100% good karma!
Oka Luda was formed in 2017 around a crush on the game Samsara – by Sylas – whose prototype was often running in our little local game club, Excitadel.
Samsara didn’t find any echo in the publishing world, so Christophe challenged us… to publish it!
A few months later, Oka Luda was well created, Chris, Mimi, Miguel and Sylas well engaged in the Kickstarter adventure. The campaign was a success, and Samsara was born!
A few months later, Kami fell into our arms, and that’s not to be refused… You can guess the rest, how to stop when the head and the heart are fulfilled?
