Gaming for the real world

Who We Are

We’re a games studio that inspires and engages learners by capturing the excitement of learning through video games. Backed by Horizons Ventures, our London-based studio is home to talent from world-renowned games studios, AI specialists and award-winning education experts. This unique mix of skills fosters a culture of innovation and healthy creative friction between the development and educational sides of the studio, ensuring our games find the perfect balance of learning without compromising on fun.

 

We’re pushing a new standard of educational games that combine high production values and pioneering learning methods with KUDDLE, our adaptive game engine.

 

Our Approach

Where others focus on building games based on curriculum and knowledge-based content, we turn entertaining games into opportunities to learn – we call it ‘Learnification’ – mapping 21st century skills to expertly designed gaming systems, supported by KUDDLE’s adaptive learning capabilities.
