Andrew Smith's Blog   Expert Blogs


My name's Andrew J Smith and I make videogames.

Sounds simple, but I keep forgetting how complex it really is.

I founded Spilt Milk Studios in 2010, and have been running it as a one man studio ever since, working with talented outsourcers and freelancers wherever possible.

Spilt Milk Studios is an independent game developer based in London, UK.

We’ve so far made a few rather good mobile games… but will develop on other platforms when the opportunity arises.

We’re best known for Hard Lines which was co-created with Nicoll Hunt, but also made Crunch: The Game and am hard at work on Smash the Block for mobile, Lazarus for iPad & PC, Hugatron, TOMB and Tango Fiesta.

We’re very prolific on TwitterFacebook and Youtube. Check us out!
