About Mode 7 Games

Mode 7 was founded in 2005 by Joint Managing Directors Paul Taylor and Ian Hardingham.

We are a core team of three, and are backed up by a group of trusted freelancers.

Our aims in life are to create fun, intelligent games and to provide an outstanding service to our clients and customers.


In 2007, we released our debut title Determinance, a multiplayer PC sword-fighting game.

This achieved a worldwide retail release, received the 2007 Game of the Year Innovation Award from Gametunnel.com, was released by Novint Technologies as "The Feel of Steel", and led to several other projects.


From 2008 to the present, we have worked on a variety of contract projects for clients including...

ITV - game design consultancy, on-site support

Lumina Displays - graphics library development for a variety of UK TV shows including The Weakest Link, Hole in the Wall and The Krypton Factor

Novint Technologies - game development, programming

ISLE - programming

We are currently working on a fast-paced tactical PC game entitled Frozen Synapse.


We provide the following: game / application design and development, programming (specialities include C++ and all variants of the Torque Game Engine) and prototyping.
