A Phone call: Free!

Team Size: 1    Time: 5 - 10 minutes

Our simplest project is a phone call, and it'll cost you NOTHING! Phone us up and chat. No pressure or obligation. Sometimes it's the simplest way to find out how much your project might cost and if we're the team for you.

 

Mini Games: Around £5k to £10k
Team Size: 2    Time: 5 - 10 days

 

The mini game is rather like the games on this website or other similar browser based games. They're quick, fun and have simple mechanics and a simple 2D art style. These games are ideal starters of clients new to digital games. They  provide plenty of fun and are a manageable starter projects.

 

We can actually get you started with a pre-designed template game for as little as £2k, adding to it your brand and a few other custom items.

 

Mini games can be turned around in around 10 days, so these are ideal if you've got a tight deadline but need something cool!

 

 

Small Games: Around £10k to £50k
Team Size: 3-4    Time: 3 - 5 weeks

 

Small games tend to be the fun, simple games that you can play on mobiles. Often they'll be free to play with adverts for revenue. At this budget game can be 3D if desired, though obviously some of the world's biggest mobile games remain 2D. It's just matter of art and game style. Original game ideas will often need to start from this bracket. This budget also incorporates the additional testing and compliance that required to publish a game on Apple or Google's mobile platform. Crossy Road is an example of a game in this price bracket.

 

 

Medium Games: Around £50k to £150k
Team Size: 6-8    Time: 3 - 6 months

 

Medium games are similar to small games above, but just contain MORE! They may have a story, more characters, animation, music and levels. Many games on mobile app stores fall into this development price range. In the early days of iPhone games, superstars Candy Crush and Angry Birds would have initially cost around the £150k for their basic versions. Games of this size can take around 8-12 weeks to develop.

 

 

Large Games: Around £150k to £250k+
Team Size: 10-12    Time: 6 - 12 months

 

We don't develop for games at these higher budget at the moment, but we can still help recommend some larger studios who do. Big budget mobile games and even some small console and PC games can come in at this price range. Expect hours of gameplay, good 3D art and/or top quality 2D art. Great sound and original music would also be part of this too.
