Dovetail Games creates digital hobbies enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of passionate enthusiasts across the globe. These hobbies come in the form of simulation experiences that faithfully recreate real world situations and put players at the heart of the action.

Since our formation in 2009, our flagship product has been Train Simulator for PC. The experience allows players to live out their rail fantasy, by driving a wide variety of trains on iconic routes around the world. Players can also express their creativity by building and sharing their own content and customising their rail collection via our comprehensive range of additional content. Train Simulator is available worldwide to download via the Steam digital game store, and in physical box versions via a selection of high street retailers, including GAME and Currys/PC World in the UK, and Walmart and Target in the USA.

We have released Dovetail Games Euro Fishing, which is available worldwide to download via the Steam digital game store. We have created the most authentic and immersive digital fishing experience ever, allowing players to tackle every step in the fishing experience, including the selection of equipment and rigs based on fishing style and objective, to surveying their preferred location. Using an intuitive new casting and reeling mechanism - ‘Total Cast Control’ - players can then test their skills by finding, attracting, catching and landing the fish.

Dovetail Games was named Business of the Year in the Medway Business Awards 2014. We were also awarded the Healthy Workplace award for our sport and wellbeing initiatives.

We are growing fast, and currently employ more than 120 passionate & creative individuals at two UK sites, Chatham (HQ) and Stirling.

In 2014, we signed a global licensing deal with Microsoft, granting Dovetail Games exclusive rights to develop and publish all-new flight simulation products based on Microsoft's genre-defining flight technology. This agreement also allowed us to distribute the multi-award winning Microsoft Flight Simulator: Gold Edition via the Steam retail channel, and we are delighted to have sold more than a quarter of a million copies of this software in the three months since its release.

We have recently announced an exciting partnership with Steam, in which we have developed a virtual reality fishing experience for their Vive headset, built in partnership between Steam and HTC.
