About Cave Bear

Cave Bear is a recently formed video and computer games developer based in the South West of England. Formed by four veterans of the games industry with over seventy years of development experience between them (including such critically-acclaimed games and franchises as Fable, Little Big Planet, Heavenly Sword, Warzone 2100, Dungeon Keeper and Conflict), their aim is to create bundles of casual gaming fun with an eye on giving the core contingent plenty of entertainment, too.

Creative director Julian Glover says "Developing on the iPhone has been a wonderful experience from start to finish. As the development time and setup costs were manageable it gave us complete creative freedom over our own product. This allowed us to very quickly turn our ideas into gameplay and meant that we were ableto fully concentrate on the fun-factor at the heart of of Jumble!"

Technical director Guy Moss adds "The iPhone is a very exciting product, harnessing enough raw power to easily create some great games, and the stable Mac-based development environment is an absolute joy. Coupled with the simple-to-use iTunes distribution model Apple really have created a masterpiece for small developers. Roll on the next title."
