Our Story

Blue Beck is one of the pioneers of online and mobile games, tracing its origins back to the 90s. In its current form, the company was founded in 2009 by mobile game veterans and boasts some 15 engineers and designers who, on average (!), have 15 years of experience in game development.

We have been producing games and apps for the most eminent brands and publishers in the world and pride ourselves in having one of the most experienced team to provide cutting-edge technology across any platform our clients can throw at us. We write games and apps in iOS, Android, Microsoft Windows Phone, BlackBerry 10, Unity, Marmalade, HTML5 and Steam and everything in between as well as for any desktop OS and browser you can think of.

Blue Beck started as an independent game studio, sold to one of the world’s largest mobile publishers at the time, went through a management buy-out to arrive back in being a true indie, albeit one with more experience, more knowhow and a better industry network than most.
