Capybara Games

Capybara is a game company that has developed several games, some of which have found great success on the App Store such as "Critter Crunch" and most recently "Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro".

The Canadian based company already has 5 iPhone games behind it's back and is well known for it's unique graphical style thats more akin to 16-bit video game consoles. Ontop of being recognised the Company has also one several awards for Critter Crunch.

The home hub for Capybara is a little bare but for each new game they create a new website exclusively for that. This allows them to keep their games seperate and gives a very professional impression to the company as this is what more established publishers also do. This also gives their games space to breath and live as thier own products, rather than being all jamed on one place.

One the home website though there is a news feed and contact details. The News feed contains all the latest Capybara news including screenshots and videos of upcoming games such as "Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro" and the contact is simply an address and an email.

Another thing that should be noted is that the website is made from Wordpress, this shows exactly how successful a company can become from a shoestring budget and some clever work. Capybara is a success story of how a mobile developer can thrive and it's always good to remember that theres many options when it come to working in the game industry.
