About 
Other Ocean

Founded in 2006, Other Ocean Group develops video games for the industry’s most established publishers. Our games are played by millions of people around the world.

From colossal console franchises including Minecraft and Mortal Kombat, to massive mobile games Simpson’s Tapped Out and Super Monkey Ball, we have worked with some of the most prestigious brands in interactive entertainment.

Because Other Ocean specializes in exploring and exploiting new technologies for games, our intellectual properties are constantly breaking new ground. Our Xbox indie hit #IDARB, was the first game to enable spectator interactivity via Twitch and Twitter, and we were one of the first to explore an open-world virtual reality experience in Giant Cop.

Other Ocean Group currently develops for the following platforms: PC (Steam, Windows 10), Console (Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo Switch), Mobile (iOS, Android), and VR/Mixed Reality.
