What we do

A new era of mobile gaming is upon us and we passionately believe we can create the future of games for new and old players alike. We are set to build the next big delightful and engaging experiences for the new generation of gamers on both phones and tablets.

Our focus is on creating a new category of “view-to-play” games – broadly accessible gameplay with a natural integration and rewarding ad-based monetization. We believe in F2P and ads – both done right can be great, you will see. We want to develop fast and have fun launching multiple games per year and not work multiple years per game.

Who we are

Futureplay, founded in 2015 by a group of professionals with 60+ years of total experience from the gaming industry and from companies such as EA, Rovio, Remedy, Boomlagoon and Reaktor are set to build the new future foundation and standard for mobile games.
