Nosebleed Interactive is a multi-award winning independent studio based in Newcastle upon Tyne, in the heart of the North East of England. We’ve worked with some of the world’s biggest companies, brands and content providers such as Channel 4 and Sony Interactive Entertainment.

At our core, we're all gamers, passionate about playing and making great games and entertainment software. Our focus is on crafting unique, fun and inclusive experiences. We're always striving to exceed expectations with what we do.

We've been named as one of the Top 50 creative companies in the country by Creative England. We also won the PlayStation Mobile Pioneers competition, as well as best small to medium business in the Newcastle Business Awards. Alongside this we were one of the first handful of companies to receive support from the prestigious UK Games Fund.

As well as traditional games we also look to diversify and take our skills into newer emerging markets, not just globally, but also within industries not usually associated with videogames such as healthcare and education.

We are a VAT registered limited company.

Welcome to Arcade Paradise!

Our biggest game to date. You play Ashley, young, charismatic, and stuck in a dead end job. It's the early 90s and whilst working shifts at your father's laundromat you dream of running a videogame arcade.

With your father lounging by the pool somewhere on another continent, and with you being entrusted with the keys to his kingdom (his laundry business). You're tasked with managing and expanding it.

Ashley is going to transform the business and give the sleepy town of Grindstone something to REALLY get excited about!

From literal rags to riches, manage the day-to-day tasks of running a business, whilst planning where to expand and which of the 35+ hot new arcade machines to order. With all the latest games available and fully playable, be careful…  it’s going to be easy to get distracted; you don’t have time to just stand and set the highest scores, there are bills to pay and trash to take out!

Stay one step ahead of your father, manage and invest the profits, and build your very own Arcade Paradise!

Coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2021

The Hungry Horde, shipped in November 2014 as part of the PlayStation Plus instant game collection.

It's a love letter to Videogames. An action strategy game where you control a horde of zombies and infect the living, whilst avoiding being nuked by the Government. It features a whole host of extras including arcade minigames, a character creator and what was apparently "the coolest credits sequence in the history of games"... according to Sony!

In its first week the title was downloaded over 360k times, and we've had fans contact us from as far away as South Korea and Brazil to thank us for making the game.

We followed the game wish some downloadable content that added extra levels, new music and an entirely new minigame, as well as some under the hood tweaks. You can buy The Hungry Horde for PlayStation Vita here.

As well as developing our own content we are available on a work for hire/contract basis. We take the same passion and dedication we apply to our own projects to everything we do. Whether that's for a week's worth of 3D modelling, or helping to take your concept through prototyping and right up to completion.

We're able to help out with development (C++, C#, Java, etc), art (concept, 3D assets, UI), interactive installations, design consultancy, VR, AR and MR projects and we offer competitive rates for short, mid and long term pieces of work.

Although we see ourselves as a game development studio, we've done a lot of work in broadcast TV, arts, education and commercial sectors too, working on brands such as Dr, Who and Star Trek and on a range of platforms, from VR and AR for companies like ASDA superstores to mobile apps for education.

Our clients include:

We have worked with publishers and developers to bring their titles to other platforms.

We're fully equipped (and experienced) to handle development across PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, PC, Android, iOS and VR. Whilst the bulk of our projects have used Unity, we're platform agnostic, with experience in Unreal, native WebGL and even having developed our own 3D PlayStation Mobile engine.

Some of the titles we've worked on include:
