" I started in the games industry in 1979 and it’s very exciting to be setting up an Indie development team at this time with so many opportunities to innovate and create quality titles in the mobile space.

I want to give players the same gorgeous art, great audio and compulsive gaming they would recognise from Halfbrick productions, along with some very innovative gameplay, as you'll see in our first title shortly.

Setting up Total ArKade Software just made a lot of sense.

As a games player I always look for something new and fresh to play, with a lot of exciting content, unique characters and great art, so these are a key focus for our launch title. ''
