Tiny Games (now available on iOS!) is a smartphone app that enables you to play fun, social games in the real world. You tell the app where you are, who you’re with and what’s to hand, and it supplies a game to fit.

With the generous support of friends, the indie games community and wonderful people some of whom we haven’t even met, we successfully raised funds for the development of the app on Kickstarter in March. The Guardian described the project as “What could be one the most interesting smartphone gaming concepts ever devised”

There are hundreds of Tiny Games to discover – for family picnics, Tiny Games for long walks through the city, games for the pub – and we will be adding new games and features all the time. We’re working really hard to make sure that the games are straightforward and easy to understand – the maximum amount of fun for the minimum amount of rule-reading.The app builds on our five years’ experience making games for people to play together, and from the Tiny Games we’ve designed and installed in London over the last two years.

In addition to our app, we’re delighted to be partnering with Sesame Innovation Lab to create Sesame Street Family Play, powered by Tiny Games.
