Playtap Games makes games of quality.
Fredrik Skarstedt and Ryan Christy have been making games together since 2006, some successful, some less so. We started working with Torque and created our first title Switching Gears, a platformer starring a little blue robot, as well as prototyped Survive, a zombie survival game where you build your own shelters. With these titles we won Garage Games Instant Action Game Developer award 2007. Unfortunately neither project came to fruition due to the fact that platformers were horribly out of fashion at the time and the zombie craze hadn't really caught on yet. We set our eyes on the world on web games and decided to try our luck in the browser based world of games. We launched MMO Baseball 2009 which was a big success for us with over 100k registered users. In MMO Baseball the player took on the role of the general manager of a baseball team. The unique feature of the game was that all games were played out live in the player's browser. If a player missed setting up a roster for the game, a AI substitute would replace him. MMO Baseball was shut down late 2010. Fresh off the success off MMO Baseball we launched Heroes vs Evil in 2011, but it was shut down 2012. Card Dungeon is our first foray into hand held gaming.
