Six QUT students and graduates have come together to create the new mobile game development studio ‘Ample Entertainment’.

Motivated by the constant demand for new, high-quality games on the Smartphone application market, Ample Entertainment founders are working towards releasing a series of exciting game titles that are based on new technologies and mechanics, and which reflect their indie style. They are currently developing their first title 'Dino Escape', which will be available on iOS and Android by November this year.

Fast tracked by support from iLab - a Queensland incubator program specialising in start-up businesses - Ample Entertainment is well on its way to becoming an active contributor to the Brisbane gaming industry. “It’s been an exciting few months starting our own game studio and commencing work on our first two releases”, says founding member Matthew Hennegan. “Our goal is to release fantastic games and experiences for players and contribute to the industry as an energetic, dedicated and cohesive team.”

With the collapse of some of the major Brisbane gaming houses over the past few years, many skilled developers have found themselves drawn to the independent game scene rather than the contracted in-house work of larger companies. Co-founder Calvin Kowald contributes: “While this is less stable we have embraced the opportunity to create our own signature games that reflect our style and creativity.”

Team members of Ample Entertainment are presenting this evening at Mobile Monday’s ‘Mobile Games Night’ in the Fortitude Valley, joining other up-starters Red Sprite Studios and Defiant Development.

Regular updates on their progress can be found on website www.ample-games.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/AmpleEntertainment.
