About Merge Games - Merge Games is a developer and publisher of independent games titles for the retail and digital marketplace based in England. We have a wealth of international experience, gained from working with major publishers over the last ten year with an experienced, forward thinking team of sales, marketing and creative gaming experts. Our initial success stemmed from our ability to help developers and smaller publishers get access to ‘hard to reach’ gaming markets like Russia, Middle East, Turkey, Pakistan and others.

In 2011 we opened up directly into the UK retail market and you will now find our games on shelves in Game, Morrisons and other nationwide retailers.

We continue to broaden our portfolio, now representing several indie game developers globally on PC ESD portals, such as Big Fish and Steam. We support our projects with bespoke marketing and PR plans for both the launch and the lifetime of the game. The key to our success is that we are small enough to give each project a very personal and tailored solution, from a talented, experienced and passionate team.
