    Where Gaming Heritage Meets Cutting-Edge Vision

    Kwalee was founded in 2011 by David Darling CBE, a key architect of the UK games industry who previously co-founded and led Codemasters for many years.

    Based in Leamington Spa, the UK’s biggest game development hub outside Greater London, our team includes legends such as Andrew Graham (creator of Micro Machines) and Jason Falcus (programmer of classics including NBA Jam) alongside a growing and diverse team of mobile gaming experts.

    And in case you’re wondering, the Kwalee name comes from an Australian Aboriginal word meaning ‘wait for me’, a homage to David’s grandfather who taught him electronics and had a sailboat with the same name.

    A Creative Formula for Chart-Topping Hits

    A Creative Formula for Chart-Topping Hits

    We take pride in our unique approach to generating new game ideas, known as ‘Creative Wednesdays’. Every week, the whole company gathers to hear pitches of new hyper-casual game ideas which can be delivered by anyone in the company, regardless of position.

    Incredible hits such as Draw It, Shootout 3D and Off the Rails 3D have come through this process, and the ideas keep coming every week.

    Even better, those who pitch titles that go on to be successful are eligible for generous royalty payments on top of their salaries. Through this, multiple team members have even doubled their salaries!
