Ruffian Games was formed in April 2008 by three industry veterans — Gary Liddon, Billy Thomson & Gareth Noyce — and is based in Dundee, at the very heart of Scotland’s game development community.

Our studio employs a team of highly experienced developers who have worked on titles spanning three decades of the games industry, including: Nike+ Kinect Training, Star Wars Kinect, Quarrel, Crackdown & Crackdown2, Fable 2, Project Gotham Racing 3, Manhunt, Grand Theft Auto, Body Harvest, Mortal Kombat and many, many more.

In fact, you may not have known it, but whether it was on a C64 or an XBox 360, you’re more than likely to have played one our our games in the past… So thank you!

What we do

We have a passion for videogames, whatever the format. We love those stolen moments of gaming on our tablets & phones, just as much as the epic, roller coasting blockbusters on our big screen TVs.

As a team we have the drive and knowledge to make skilful and energetic games on all formats. We’ve created highly original titles that have spawned into successful franchises, and we’re very experienced at working deftly with other people’s IP.

We simply love to make games, so if you’re interested in working with us, please get in touch, our contact details are at the bottom of the page.

Get Involved!

We’re nothing without the people that play our games: you!
