The founders of TKG have extensive experience in the development of critically acclaimed titles such as Guitar Hero Live and DiRT.

TKG focuses on emerging technologies and greenfield projects, supported by a dynamic and creative team who are able to explore new ground in this ever changing landscape. 

Our latest title in development is Blankos Block Party, a collectables game using blockchain technology, where the player can build their own worlds, create their own MMO gameplay, and blend their Blankos to create totally unique new characters.

We are always expanding and we are looking for others to join us as Third Kinders.
