Web games provide a great, cost effective way to target a full range of devices (from mobile devices to desktop PCs), all from the same version, at the same access point (a single URL). This makes online games ideal for projects with modest budgets and/or short timescales, such as branded games.
With the explosion in smartphone and tablet use on the go and these becoming many peoples’ primary devices for internet browsing, casual gaming and more, a mobile game can be a great way to tap into this ever growing audience.
Windows applications, for standard PC hardware can be a great choice for deploying your game for offline play, either in the workplace or for external events via interactive kiosks.
We create games for deployment as standard Windows or Mac executables for a variety of business uses.
Interactive kiosks can be used to run interactive multimedia content, including games, in virtually any physical location. Plus with the affordability of PC touch screens, tablets with a touch screen built in, it’s easier than ever to set up a DIY interactive game kiosk.
What Platforms Do You Use?
HTML5 is now the most cost effective and time efficient way to create interactive multimedia content that works across a multitude of devices, both online and offline. This makes it the best choice in most cases when it comes to producing games for marketing, education, business training, and more.

Device Independent Game Design
We have extensive experience of designing games that just work across a range of target devices and screen sizes. We use responsive design techniques where applicable and design games to work with a range of input devices, as required.
What Types of Games Can You Make?
It’s unlikely you’ll have the budget for a hi-tech 3D extravaganza, but within the realms of a 2D game we can produce pretty much anything.
The start of the game design process usually involves figuring out who your target audience is. Then we can suggest possible game concepts that will fit your requirements and appeal to your audience.
We’re experts in developing games to appeal to different age ranges and levels of technical proficiency. From simple, easy to pick-up and play puzzle games, to more complex experiences, to appeal to more experienced gamers. Anything from a simple, addictive casual puzzle game to a more complex arcade-like game, we’ve got it covered.
Aren’t Computer Games for Kids?
Despite what you might think, it’s not just kids that play video games, in fact that couldn’t be further from the truth. Research has shown that a large percentage of gamers are adults (the average gamer being in their 30s), and women are just as likely to play video games as men. So computer games are suitable for targeting a wide range of demographics, not just children or the youth market.
How Much Does It Cost?
We have years of experience designing and developing digital games for clients and meeting the specific requirements of producing games for mobile devices. So we can have your game up and running in a relatively short time-frame and can scale game concepts and provide solutions within a range of budgets from the most modest through to more substantial budgets.
How Long Does It Take?
It all really depends on how complex the game is and we can sometimes accommodate urgent projects in a short timeframe, but it’s usually best to start planning and get in touch as early as possible.
