Joining Us

Looking to do businessss?

Playtonic Games are an independent videogame developer, started by the creative talent behind some of the most popular platform games of the past (including Donkey Kong Country and Banjo-Kazooie).  Our aim is to bring fun games that everyone loves to play to new and old audiences alike across multiple platforms!

Our core team of veterans mixed with fresh, youthful talent has collectively notched up hundreds of years of videogame development. Our first release as Playtonic Games is Yooka-Laylee, launched in April 2017, and funded as a result of Europe’s biggest video game Kickstarter! We’re based in the heart of the Midlands in the UK near Burton upon Trent, within easy commuting distance of larger cities such as Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham.

With our first game done, we’re looking to expand, and you could become a part of our future adventures!
