SERIOUS ABOUT CASUAL
Longtail Studios strives to develop vivid characters and superior gameplay experiences. Our goal is to make the kind of games people seek out. Our games aim to be highly relatable, simply playable, and feature rewarding gameplay that makes them hard to put down. We want to make gaming an everyday part of your entertainment experience.
Longtail works with Ubisoft's 'Games for Everyone' division, developing games for the audience beyond the hardcore, male gamer. We primarily make games that families will want to play together, but also develop games for today's hyper-social adult generation.
Our history saw us first developing on mobile and handheld, but our current focus is squarely on the home console market. Longtail are registered developers with Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.

« In the art department we get a lot of creative freedom, freedom to experiment and try out new ideas. For any artist that is one of best kind of working environments to have, that kind of freedom is what makes great games. Of course that would be nothing without a talented team to implement all these ideas, and Longtail has a fantastic team of artists, animators, designers and programmers who all want to make great games. »
« Longtail is all about team and initiative. It’s a passionate place for game development, and we’re a small studio so communication’s always open. Halifax is a great town for friendly people, awesome seafood and spontaneous adventure! »
« The work atmosphere here at Longtail is pretty great. There’s a great deal of collaboration, and the wide open floor space makes it extremely easy to sit down and work things out with friends and colleagues. Working with such a strong team means not only that I'm constantly learning new things, but that I get to see the whole office 'level up' with each game we make. »
