Origin8 is an entirely independent games and apps developer for Apple iPhone/iPod/iPad, Mac, Android, PC and PlayStation Mobile.

We’re a small, creative team whose backgrounds encompass every major console & handheld platform since the 1980’s… yes, some of us are that old! Origin8 was founded in 2008 by Jez San and Foo Katan, two video game veterans with over 50 years of development experience between them.

We aim to develop great games, useful applications taking full advantage of the strengths of our chosen platforms and bringing fresh thinking and original twists to mobile entertainment software.


We hope you enjoy our games and apps and do get in touch with us via the contact page, Twitter, Facebook …and other places we hang around.


We love to hear your feedback!
