UK Online & Mobile Game Production

Welcome to the branded games website of Bristol, UK based online and mobile game developers & designers The Motion Monkey.

We offer a complete branded game production 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 Games?

Branded video games 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 using a branded game 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 Games?

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

Online in the Web Browser

A 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.

Mobile Games

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 create mobile app games 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.

Exhibition Stands and Interactive Kiosks

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 produce 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.

Facebook

We can integrate your game 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 create games using the best technology for the particular job. This primarily includes:

Flash

The term 'Flash Game' has become synonymous with web browser based games for a reason. Using 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 creating 2D games for deployment across web, mobile devices (as native apps) and more.

The world's biggest casual games companies use Flash for 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.

HTML5

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 using HTML5 and we rarely recommend going down this route for this reason.

Our Services

We can cover the full game development process, from initial concepts and mock-ups through to the finished game, including artwork, animation, coding and sound design. 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.

Our Experience

Unlike most other branded game developers we aren't just web designers who decided to develop branded games, video game development is all we do. We've been designing and developing games on various platforms for around two decades and branded games for around 8 years.

Because we're a highly specialist game production business, not a jack of all trades design agency, we can provide a level of specialist expertise in branded game development that most marketing and advertising agencies just can't match. In fact marketing and advertising agencies often use us for advice as well as to outsource their game development projects.

Who We've Created Games For

We've produced branded games for businesses large and small, as well as individuals and can provide solutions to suit most budgets. Some of our satisfied clients include small website owners, independent music artists, charities, IT services companies, book publishers, a well known UK motorsport venue, London based marketing and advertising agencies, one of the biggest theatre companies in the UK and one of the world's biggest supermarket chains.

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.
