We’ve interviewed Xbox Live developer Babaroga in the past, and today we look at the studio in more depth. Zombies!!! may be the developer’s best-known Windows Phone title, but Babaroga has actually worked on more than 9 Xbox Live games, including Minesweeper and Sudoku. Both tiles are published by Microsoft and available for free in multiple territories.
Babaroga opened its doors in Chicago in 2001. From day one they focused specifically on mobile phone games development, making dozens of games prior to the proliferation of smartphones. That experience made it easy for them to migrate to more powerful devices as they debuted, including Windows Phone in 2010. To date they have released over 50 titles, including the previously mentioned Xbox Live games as well as Spore Origins and EA Sports MMA, both published by Electronic Arts on iPhone.
Expanding for the future
The London office of Babaroga LTD
Babaroga recognizes the tremendous opportunities that Microsoft platforms bring to game developers. As such, they now focus primarily on Windows Phone, Windows 8, and Xbox Live Arcade development. The strategy has paid off so far; their Xbox Live titles have enjoyed praise from critics like yours truly and fans alike.
After more than ten years of crafting mobile games, Babaroga has recently opened a new studio in London, just a stone’s throw away from WPCentral’s own Richard Edmonds. Spearheading the European office is David Bachowski, VP of Business Development. The London team is currently looking for programmers and 3D artists who share excitement and passion for Windows Phone and mobile gaming as a whole. Interested parties should contact Babaroga by email. Don’t forget to let us know how it goes!
