Total Monkery: making fun.


Total Monkery is a UK independent family-run games studio. Beginning in the back bedroom of a town house in Plymouth as one veteran programmer and two novice employees, Total Monkery have grown into a confident and efficient team. This year Total Monkery consists of Richard Weeks, TD; Andrea Chandler, MD; two artists, two programmers and an apprentice artist. We are currently based in Plymouth University's Formation Zone. 

Our debut game, MagNets, MagNets is a fast-paced bot-collection action game for PC in 2014. We received grant funding from Creative England to produce MagNets; since then, it has had an audience at The Gadget Show and Insomnia 52, received a TIGA nomination in October 2014, has been released on Steam after a successful Greenlight and is currently being upgraded for an Xbox One release. Our second Unity title, ElemenTales, is a serene 3D puzzle game available now for Windows tablets, mobiles and PC, and will also be available for Xbox One in the new year. Our most recent project, Late Night Shop, is a smart first-person horror stealth puzzler; the pre-alpha was released 2015 has received an overwhelmingly positive response.

An ambitious company, we have goals beyond making quality games; we like to collaborate with others, get involved in the local area, share our skills and experience, and in doing so contribute value to the industry we love.
