State of Play Games

Where gaming design is often considered a largely digital craft - not one associated with craftsmanship and hand-skills - is where State of Play Games differs.

Rather than being led by technology and new possibilities, State of Play Games are guided by an idea and are crafting games from the inside out. Always born from hand-making process, be that splatting Indian ink onto paper or creating an entire city from cut paper, State of Play Games endeavour to embed their games in reality before embarking on the technological development and they are meticulous in their detail. In this, they are committed to diversifying the future of the gaming world and refusing to render it to the screen. 

State of Play Games is an award winning gaming designer, based in London, founded by Luke Whittaker and Katherine Bidwell.
