About Pub Games

Pub Games was founded in 2011 by a group of university students with the goal of brewing up high quality, entertaining experiences that are accessible, fun and community minded.

Building up both experience and reputation, Pub Games worked on a number of contracted projects during their opening months.

BlastPoints,  their independent debut title, was born out of a desire to bring a classic space combat experience, while pushing the technical boundaries of mobile devices. Utilising the power of Unreal Engine 3, Pub Games wanted to provide an experience with the shock and awe that is typically found in console games.
