Playdiation are a team of hard working and inventive humans who are putting the video back into videogames.
Our studio culture prioritises invention, exploration and prototyping at all levels of design and technology. We try to let the actual work speak loudly in the room, minimising speculation and specification. Things you can touch, play, and experience guide our development.
We love to be in a room together, great leaps are made, and ideas are materialised when challenges are collectively shared.
