Nice to meet you! We are 8D Games.

8D Games was founded in 2014 and has since delivered more than eighty serious game projects. Our office is located in Leeuwarden, in the north of the Netherlands. Over the years we’ve worked with partners all throughout the Netherlands and Europe.

Most of our projects focus on creating social impact through engaging games and technical innovation. Our mission is to bring out the best in people in a playful manner, whether they’re 8 years old or 88 years old. We strongly believe in working together with knowledge institutions and – most important – the target audiences that we try to reach through our games.

Besides technical and graphical expertise, the development of an effective serious game takes a lot of good listening, research and knowledge exchange with experts. We have a lot of experience with process guidance, honest communication and working with scrum. You can trust us to make sure the project stays within budget and deadlines are met.

Last but not least: we like to have fun, long lasting partnerships! Let’s collaborate to work on an highscore for people and society. 

Sharing

In recent years we have been able to apply our expertise within healthcare, education, business and (semi-) government. We know what works best for different target groups. But real experts can also listen, ask questions and create space for other people to flourish in their field of expertise. That is why we like to work together with other professionals from different disciplines.

Playing

Playing, taking on challenges and experimenting is in our blood. “Why don’t we ever play easy-mode?” is a regularly heard saying in our office. We mean that in a positive sense. We know the value of playing and developing experimentally, both in a project and within our own team. That is why we do everything in a playful way. And we also quite like jokes!

Growing

Every human being is capable to learn. Being able to do something that you couldn’t do before, or creating something that wasn’t there before; that’s what gets us excited! Day after day we keep on developing. Pushing boundaries and overcoming ourselves. That is exactly what we want to offer our partners and players: creating tools that help people flourish.
