State of Play Games

UKIE Member

State of Play creates lovingly crafted games & animations.

Established in 2008, State of Play’s work has won a number of international awards.

Headed by Luke Whittaker, who mostly does the art, design and animation, co-founder Katherine Bidwell, and developer/technical genius Daniel Fountain, we’re a small team who love what we do. When possible we work with people from all over the creative industries.

We are currently working on Lumino City, a hand-crafted puzzle adventure game made from paper, card, and miniature lights and motors. It’s the sequel to Lume, which won a Develop Showcase Award.

We recently launched the puzzle game KAMI , winner of  Mac App Store Best of 2013, and a while back released Headspin: Storybook for iOS platforms, one of Apple’s ‘Best iPad Apps of 2010’.

We have also created hit games for clients including MTV, Miniclip, BBC, ESPN, Fremantle, Mind Candy and Shockwave, and animations for the likes of Oxfam, BBC, Christian Aid and Macmillan.
