We are currently developing Word Tag: A 3D action platformer with embedded vocabulary learning.
The founding principle of the studio is to combine learning with state of the art game development. We consider ourselves to be game developers first and foremost as we believe a fantastic game is essential for the learning aspect to be successful.
This studio is part of Mrs Wordsmith, an educational company, with offices around the world, that aims to make kids laugh while learning. We mainly collaborate with the London office, where a team of literacy experts ensure that the educational aspect of the game is backed by the latest and best research into vocabulary learning.
The Word Tag team is made up of around 12 passionate game developers. It is a healthy mix of young and experienced talent.
