About the Company
HandCircus is a London-based independent games studio, founded in 2008 and dedicated to creating bold, original, and playful games for the exciting world of digital distribution and emerging platforms.
We first opened our studio doors in June 2008, launching our first title that December, Rolando, a platform-puzzle-adventure for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This was followed by the award winning Rolando 2 : The Quest for the Golden Orchid in July 2009.
We followed up the Rolando series with the creation of a brand new world for our PlayStation 3 title, Okabu.
We’ve now returned to our roots of mobile and tablet, building on the world of Okabu for our brand-new trading adventure, Seabeard.
HandCircus was nominated for Best New Studio at the Develop Awards 2009.
