Description

We are a game development studio. We love creating fun experiences for different platforms and users.

History

How LEAP Game Studios was formed

We started making games during the Global Game Jam 2012. At this event we started the first prototype of Squares, that we would later publish on iOS, Android and soon on PlayStation Vita. We saw that we had a great team and started the studio, making games for others but also thinking on ideas for our own titles. That's how Squares was released and how we entered into the PlayStation Incubation Program on 2014 and started making the PS Vita version of the game. We are currently working on prototypes for future games.

How we make games

We love making games and experimenting with cool game mechanics and new gadgets. We prototype a lot and try to make the games we would like to play. And in our spare time we play board games!
