UK Branded Online & Mobile Game Development

Welcome to the website of Bristol, UK based specialist branded online and mobile game producers The Motion Monkey.

We offer a complete branded online and mobile game production service for companies and small businesses, as well as marketing, advertising and PR agencies throughout the UK, including London, the South West, the Midlands, Scotland and beyond.

Why Use Branded Games?

It's no secret that businesses large and small, in a wide variety of industries, are starting to see the value of using engaging interactive experiences to help achieve their business goals. Video games are the king of all interactive digital content and branded games provide an entertaining way to satisfy a variety of business needs, providing unrivalled levels of engagement and above all enjoyment.

How To Use Branded Games?

We offer custom branded video games for a variety of purposes within your business, including:

Advergames

Advergames are one of the most powerful forms of content marketing. They provide a great, fun and engaging interactive advertising medium, to help reinforce your marketing messages and brand values across a range of devices and delivery platforms.

You're no longer trying to force these goals onto an audience. Advergames can draw in your audience in a way that traditional marketing & advertising methods could only dream of. Plus, because your audience actually enjoys interacting with your brand, dwell times can increase significantly, as well as increasing repeat visits.

Promotional Games

Promotional video games can be a great tool for use either internally within your business as staff rewards, or externally as a great, more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional, physical promotional products and corporate gifts.

Promotional games don't have to be seasonal, they can be used any time of year as staff rewards or to send out to past and present customers and clients to keep your business top-of-mind.

They also make a great alternative to business Christmas cards. Plus, they can be delivered electronically via a simple link to the game on your website, so eliminating the need for expensive postage costs.

Educational Games

Video games can be a great tool to make learning more engaging, fun and above all memorable. We develop educational games ranging from simple quizzes, to complex interactive experiences and simulations. If you want to make training more interesting within your business then educational games may provide just what you need.

Where To Use Branded Games?

We develop branded games for deployment across a range of platforms, including:

Branded Online Games

A branded web browser game can provide great unique content to encourage visitors to stick around on your website for longer. An online version of your branded game can also be a great way to cross-promote and drive downloads of a mobile app version of your branded game.

Branded Mobile Games

The growing use of smartphones and tablets as casual gaming devices on the go has opened up a great opportunity for your business to stand out from the crowd. We create branded mobile app games for deployment across the most popular iOS and Android devices and can offer a complete package including mobile game and web based alternative if needed.

Branded Exhibition Stand Games

Branded games can be a great way increase footfall and interest in your event or exhibition stand. Attract more visitors and get people talking with a custom game.

We can produce games to run on standard PC hardware and to support a range of input devices and screen sizes. Anything from a game for a small interactive kiosk to a fully featured retro arcade game to run on a giant screen, we've got it covered.

We can also offer on-site tech support for your branded game for the duration of the event, to make sure everything goes without a hitch and any problems that may arise can be sorted out as quickly as possible.

Branded Facebook Games

We can integrate your branded game with popular social media in order to help increase spread. This can range from simple "share" links, to post links to the game to player's Twitter, Facebook and Google+ feeds right up to full integration with the Facebook social games platform.

What Tech Do We Use to Create Branded Games?

We create branded games using the best technology for the particular job. This primarily includes:

Branded HTML5 Games

HTML5 is currently the only viable option for developing web based games that will run on mobile devices as well as desktop computers. If your game needs to be web based and compatible with modern mobile devices, then HTML5 is the right choice for you.

With HTML5 games you eliminate the need to download and install a mobile app in order to play your game. Any compatible modern mobile device with an internet connection can play your game directly on your own website.

HTML5 also gives you full control over the mobile game publication process. You're not at the mercy of mobile app store submission guidelines and timeframes. You control when and what to publish on your own website, making it a great choice for urgent, time critical game projects.

Branded Adobe AIR/Flash Games

The term 'Flash Game' has become synonymous with web browser based games for a reason. Using the ubiquitous Flash web player is still the best way to reach the largest audience via the web, but over recent years Flash has evolved into much more than that. It's now arguably the best tool for developing 2D games for deployment across web, mobile devices (as native apps) and more, thanks to the introduction of Adobe AIR.

The world's biggest casual games companies use Flash to develop games for Facebook and mobile (with the majority of the most popular Facebook games being Flash based).

Using our own in-house core game engine we can design web and mobile versions of the same branded game without significantly increasing the cost of development for a single platform.

Our Branded Game Design & Development Services

We cover the full game design & development process, from initial game designs, concepts and mock-ups through to the finished game, including artwork, animation, coding and sound design and managing the project from start to finish. Plus we're here to answer any questions and advise you every step of the way.

If you already have a solid game idea, we can help you flesh it out into a good, workable game concept, or we can come up with concepts from scratch for you.

Because we believe each client is unique, we only create bespoke branded games. We don't take the "that'll do" approach that re-skinned, off-the-shelf games provide. Each commissioned game we make is designed and built from the ground up to be the perfect solution for that particular client's needs.

Our Branded Game Production Experience

Unlike other custom branded game companies we aren't just a traditional design agency who decided to offer game design services, we're specialist video game producers, that's all we do. We've been creating games on various platforms for around two decades and designing games for businesses large and small for around 8 years.

We're a small, highly specialist Bristol, UK based game producer, not a jack of all trades design agency. We have the perfect balance of creative flair and technical video game design & programming knowledge and experience in-house. So we can provide a level of specialist expertise in producing computer games that most marketing, advertising and design agencies just can't match. In fact marketing and advertising agencies often come to us for advice as well as to outsource their game creation projects.

We’re one of UK’s leading designers & developers of branded games to help promote brands, products and services, working with end clients, as well as marketing, advertising and PR agencies. In fact we started making branded games to promote theatre productions (both touring and in London’s West End) nearly a decade ago, before most people had even heard the term “advergames“.

Who We've Created Branded Games For

We've created games for businesses large and small, as well as individuals and can provide solutions to suit most budgets. With a growing list of satisfied clients, we've produced games for London based marketing and advertising agencies, one of the biggest theatre companies in the UK (and London's West End), one of the world's most successful independent film & TV production/distribution companies, one of the world's largest supermarket chains, book publishers, a well known UK motorsport venue and more.

We've worked directly for end clients as well as working with agencies of all sizes ranging from small two man teams to multi-national ad agencies.

What If You're Not Located Near Bristol?

Not a problem. In fact the majority of the work we've done has been for companies outside the Bristol area, with a big percentage of our game production clients being in the London area. We're always just a phone call or email away and where necessary we're happy to travel to meet face to face if need be. We've designed & developed bespoke games for companies all over the UK, including London, The Midlands (Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Staffordshire) and Scotland (Glasgow, Edinburgh).
