Company Description

SDP Games is an award-winning game developer founded in 2005 and based in Lyon, France. Our mission is simple: make great games for the entire family on all platforms! We recently fell in love with mobile and tablets, especially iPads, where we created and published the Apple featured Save the Furries, a great 3D puzzle game. We’ve been making games for almost 10 years on diverse platforms such as iPhone, iPads, Android Phones, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, PC, we even had a Xbox 360 Kinect launch title called "Dance Paradise" so check out our website for more information !


Early history

We were initially working on Team Bondi's LA Noire video game, where we were responsible of implementing the real-time animation system and game play elements.

After that

We decided to create our own games on various platforms as a work-for-hire developer, Sony PSP initially then Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 Kinect, the web, etc.

And we...

Took the risk to develop and publish our own games, starting by the Apple-featured and Critically Acclaimed Save the Furries 3D puzzler on iOS and Wii, PC, Android: . It became Apple selection of the week and double featuring in the App Store in 6 countries: USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and CHINA ! Climbed to Top #25 free downloaded iPad game in the USA ! The press loved it: App Store Arcade gave it a 10 out of 10 ! "Save the Furries! is a fantastic puzzle" and Clash Entertainment a 83/100 "Awesome !"


We have released our brand new game, our most ambitious release to date: Melissa K. and the Heart of Gold. A beautiful Adventure/Puzzle game on multiple platforms. Over 1 Million Players already!
