Games we believe in

Best known in recent years for developing the global phenomenon Minecraft for Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo consoles – the team is now immersed in the creation of brand new games for everyone to enjoy.

Born and bred in Scotland

The Scottish games industry is booming. Abertay University was the first in the world to launch a computer games degree and there are now over 175 games related courses across Scotland’s sixteen universities.

With studios in both Dundee and East Linton, we have established the perfect collaborative environment for real creative freedom and technical agility. Dundee has more games developers per head of population than anywhere in the world, adding the fourth ‘J’ – Joysticks – to a long history of innovation in Jute, Jam and Journalism.
