UK Online & Mobile Game Design & Development

Welcome to the custom branded mobile & online game development website of Bristol, UK based game producers The Motion Monkey.

We offer a complete branded game design & development service for companies throughout the UK, including London, the South West, the Midlands, Scotland and beyond. We're also happy to work with marketing, advertising and PR agencies.

Why Use Branded Games?

Branded video game development can put the fun into your next campaign, providing an unrivalled level of engagement and above all enjoyment. Here are just some of the reasons you should consider having a branded game made as part of your next campaign:

  1. Branded games are interactive - Unlike more traditional passive forms of advertising, branded games allow viewers to interact with your brand.
  2. Branded games are fun - Viewers actually enjoy seeing your advert and interacting with it, unlike most other forms of advertising.
  3. Branded games can give worldwide exposure - Whether your game is available on web, mobile or both it's possible for people from all over the world to play your game.
  4. Branded games can help your other promotional efforts - A game can provide a great hook to get the media interested and generate more exposure for your campaign.

Where To Use Branded Games?

We make branded games for deployment across a range of platforms, including:

Branded Online Game Development

A branded web based game can provide great unique content to encourage visitors to stick around on your website for longer. With our distribution (viral seeding) service, it's also a great way to drive traffic to your website. An online version of your game can also be a great way to cross-promote and drive downloads of a mobile app version of your game.

Branded Mobile Game Development

The growing use of smartphones and tablet as casual gaming devices on the go has opened up a great opportunity for your business to stand out from the crowd. We produce branded mobile game apps for deployment across the most popular iOS and Android devices and can offer a complete package including mobile game and web based alternative if needed.

Branded Exhibition Stand and Interactive Kiosk Game Development

Branded games can be a great way increase footfall and interest in your event or exhibition stand. Attract more visitors and get people talking with a custom game.

We can create games to run on standard PC hardware and to support a range of input devices and screen sizes. Anything from a game for a small interactive kiosk to a fully featured retro arcade game to run on a giant screen, we've got it covered.

We can also offer on-site tech support for your game for the duration of the event, to make sure everything goes without a hitch and any problems that may arise can be sorted out as quickly as possible.

Branded Facebook Game Development

We make games that integrate with popular social media in order to help increase spread. This can range from simple "share" links, to post scores and links to the game to player's Twitter, Facebook and Google+ feeds right up to full integration with the Facebook social games platform.

What Tech Do We Use?

We develop games using the best technology for the particular job. This primarily includes:

Branded Flash Game Development

The term 'Flash Game' has become synonymous with web browser based games for a reason. Targetting the ubiquitous Flash web player is still the best way to reach the largest audience via the web, but over recent years Flash has evolved into much more than that. It's now arguably the best tool for developing 2D games for deployment across web, mobile devices (as native apps) and more.

The world's biggest casual games companies use Flash to create games on Facebook and mobile (with the majority of the most popular Facebook games being Flash based).

Using our own in-house core game engine we can produce web and mobile versions of the same game without significantly increasing the cost of development for a single platform.

9 times out of 10 we recommend Flash as the best technology to produce small scale video games for deployment on web and mobile cost and time effectively.

Branded HTML5 Game Development

If you need to target mobile devices via the web HTML5 is currently the only viable option. There are a number of significant technical shortcomings of developing with HTML5 and we rarely recommend going down this route for this reason.

Our Branded Game Design & Development Services

We're one of UK's leading producers of branded games to help promote brands, products and services, working with end clients, as well as marketing, advertising and PR agencies. In fact we started making branded games to promote theatre productions (both touring and in London's West End) nearly a decade ago, before most people had even heard the term "advergames".

We cover the full game design & development process, from initial game designs, concepts and mock-ups through to the finished game, including artwork, animation, coding and sound design, including managing the project from start to finish. Plus we're here to answer any questions and advise you every step of the way.

If you already have a solid game idea, we can help you flesh it out into a good, workable game concept, or we can come up with ideas from scratch for you.

Because we believe each client is unique, we only create custom branded games. We don't take the "that'll do" approach that reskinned, off-the-shelf games provide. Each commissioned game we make is designed and built from the ground up to be the perfect solution for that particular business.

How Much Will Custom Branded Game Production Cost?

Despite what you might think, getting a custom branded game produced doesn't have to cost a fortune and because you're coming direct to us, you won't get charged big design agency prices. We're happy to work to reasonable budgets and advise what's possible within your particular budget.

Our Game Development Experience

Unlike other custom game companies we aren’t just a traditional design agency who decided to offer game design services, we're specialist video game producers, that's all we do. We've been creating games on various platforms for around two decades and designing games for businesses large and small for around 8 years.

We're a small, highly specialist Bristol, UK based game production studio, not a jack of all trades design agency. We have the perfect balance of creative flair and technical game design & programming knowledge and experience in-house. So we can provide a level of specialist expertise in producing computer games that most marketing, advertising and design agencies just can't match. In fact marketing and advertising agencies often come to us for advice as well as to outsource their game creation projects.

Who We've Created Games For

We've created games for businesses large and small, as well as individuals and can provide solutions to suit most budgets. With a growing list of satisfied clients, we've produced games for London based marketing and advertising agencies, one of the biggest theatre companies in the UK (and London's West End), one of the world's most successful independent film & TV production/distribution companies, one of the world's largest supermarket chains, book publishers, a well known UK motorsport venue and more.

We've worked directly for end clients as well as working with agencies of all sizes ranging from small two man teams to multi-national ad agencies.

What If You're Not Located Near Bristol?

Not a problem. In fact the majority of the work we've done has been for companies outside the Bristol area, with a big percentage of our game production clients being in the London area. We're always just a phone call or email away and where necessary we're happy to travel to meet face to face if need be. We've designed & developed bespoke games for companies in London, The Midlands (Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Staffordshire), Scotland (Glasgow, Edinburgh) and further afield, even Switzerland and the U.S.A.
