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 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 recently released Lumino City, a hand-crafted puzzle adventure game made from paper, card, and miniature lights and motors and it won a BAFTA for Artistic Acheivement.

We’re also the creators of 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.

We love to hear interesting things so please get in touch with us!
