OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE THE MOST FUN AND MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES POSSIBLE.

The list of titles that Graphite Lab has developed is an extensive one, at over 200 released titles.   Recent products include work for Transformers Rescue Bots, My Little Pony and Mr. Potato Head to name just a few.

When we’re not making games for other great companies, we’re creating our own! Years of working with top brands and characters has rubbed off on us. We’ve pumped that excitement and expertise into our own ideas. The first of which is Hive Jump, a 2-D side-scrolling action platformer for 1-4 players. We’ve made a big push to extend our reach to new platforms and territories with apps and games played worldwide. Since we’re counting, we can tell ya that we’ve reached #1 in over 60 countries with our different apps and amassed over 30,000,000 plays since January 2014.

We Thrive On Challenging Projects That Produce Bigger Rewards.

The Key 3

We focus on these three things to help us stand out from other developers.

Give us a Call or Email

Focus on Fun

Fun is at the heart of what we do. If you aren't having fun, why play?

Fun comes first.

We agonize over the fun stuff. Sounds a little silly, but we really do go through tough discussions, schedules, and developments in order to deliver the most fun experience we can.

Visually Impeccable

Our studio was founded by artists. So the visual appeal of a game is something we take seriously.

We care about looks.

While fun comes first, we feel that visual expression is an important part of engaging a user in a game. We thrive on bringing smiles to faces young and old through incredible animation, intuitive interfaces and smart design.

Player Tested

We're smart. Our players are smarter. We value their opinions.

Test for best results.

We have great partnerships with organizations in the area which facilitate testing groups for kids of all ages.

I work diligently to create the inner workings and behind the scenes functionality of the apps and games we make. My day is split mostly between two tasks: creating copious amounts of bugs and fixing those bugs. I am always on the hunt for the next project to make, or in some cases break.
