UK Developers of Branded PC Games for Businesses
Why Use PC Games for Our Business?
Businesses large and small are really beginning to embrace the ideas of gamification, branded games, and games for corporate training. This is because games and gaming concepts are second to none at making what are usually boring corporate activities into engaging, fun ones.
Windows PCs can make a great choice for delivery of games for business applications.
We create branded games built as standard Windows applications for a variety of business uses.
How Can We Use PC Games in Our Business?
Most businesses already have lots of accessible PCs, so there’s not usually any hardware outlay. Whether it’s for educational/training purposes or for use at some sort of promotional live event or trade show, you can just use your existing business machines.
Just some of potential uses for games in your business are:
If you want to use a branded game for an PC based interactive kiosk, a Windows application allows you to install and run locally, without the need for a live internet connection.
All you need to run your game is standard PC hardware connected to a touch screen. Or we can accommodate a variety of other input devices, such as joysticks/gamepads for a more arcade-like experience.
Just some of the ways you can use a PC based interactive kiosk are:
If you want a fun piece of interactive content as an alternative to passive video content, branded games may be for you. Help increase visitors to your trade show stand and attract customers.
Games lend themselves well to any form of experiential marketing. For audience engagement they are second to none.
Install a game on standard PC hardware at your event to encourage interaction with your brand.
Promotional Retail Installations

Museums and Art Galleries

We create custom games to educate adults and kids alike. From academic subjects, such as math and geography, to making people think about social issues.
PCs are a great platform to deliver these types of games. Read more…
Develop Once, Use Indefinitely
After the initial development costs, there’s nothing stopping you using your game over and over again. Don’t just use it once, in one place.
If you’re looking for a game for an exhibition, why not plan to use it at multiple events.
If you’re game is for a retail installation, and you have multiple stores, why not roll it out to all of them.
With a bit of forward thinking and creative planning, multiple uses will help you get the most out of your production budget.
There are also options with HTML5 to produce a web based version to use as a piece of premium online content to help with your other marketing efforts.
If you want to target multiple platforms with your game, not just PCs, we achieve this in a variety of ways:
If your game doesn’t need to run locally and you know there will be access to a live internet connections, we can develop your game as a web based application.
This allows cost-effective development of one version of your game that can be made accessible on a variety of devices. You can target mobile devices as well and desktop PCs without having to worry about multiple builds.
Using Device Agnostic Solutions
We have access to a variety of development platforms that allow building to multiple device targets. These include HTML5 (built as hybrid apps), Adobe AIR and Unity.
These allow us to streamline development for different devices, without having to re-create from scratch for each.
If you want to run your game as a local application, across multiple device types, we can help you choose the best platform for your needs.
What Development Platforms Are Available?
It’s always best to talk to us about your project before making a decision on the tech you want to use, but here are some examples:
Although predominantly a web based platform HTML5 can make a cost effective choice for developing PC applications. If you want to go down the local executable Windows application route, HTML5 games can be packaged as such.
It also means if you want a web based version in future then there is minimal extra work involved to make that happen. Read more…
Using Adobe AIR means we can develop your game and target desktop PCs as well as mobile devices (in the form of a mobile app) from the same code. Read more…
Other Development Platforms
There is also the option of using other platforms/game engines such as Unity.
