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 Develop?
It’s unlikely you’ll have the budget for a hi-tech 3D extravaganza, but within the realms of a 2D game we can develop 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 and appeal to your audience.
We’re experts in designing 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 Custom Game Development Cost?
We have years of experience designing and developing digital games for clients and meeting the specific requirements of producing 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 Custom Game Development 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.
