studio

We work from a brand new, custom designed and open plan studio in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa – a thriving town with a bustling game-development scene. We’re a small, dedicated bunch with drive, passion and creativity. First and foremost Hardlight is known for bringing SEGA’s much loved blue mascot to the mobile domain, but we have much more up our sleeves to come.

Since formation, we are extremely proud of how our teams’ knowledge and expertise in developing for mobile platforms has grown.

We come from a variety of backgrounds in the games industry – some from console development, bringing their experience and effectively applying that to developing in the digital realm, others from mobile specific development, and even some talented new graduates we’ve been lucky enough
to find along the way.
