Founded Year

Mission & Purpose

The sky’s not the limit. At Space Ape, we make some of the world’s best mobile games for your Apple or Android smartphone. Founded in 2012 and based in London, we’re now over 120 people strong organised across several game teams. Mobile gaming is a global business and so are we. Our staff represent dozens of different nationalities, and our games are live in most countries around the world. Our mission is to make the highest quality, and most successful mobile games in the world. We are imaginative, inventive, and genre-defining in our pursuit of those games. We’re off to a good start. To-date we’ve launched five games including Transformers: Earth Wars (strategy) and Beatstar (music), which have both grossed over $100M in revenue each. Our latest game is Chrome Valley Customs (match-3), and we expect it to be our biggest ever game. But our most valuable asset is and will always be our teams. We believe the best games are made by the best teams. Successful Space Apes are passionate about their craft, are highly productive in their work day, self-accountable, and most of all, are team players. In 2017 we became a part of the Supercell family. We’re just getting started. For our mission to succeed, we need a few more great people.
