We are Madfinger
Who are we ?
MADFINGER Games is a young, exciting studio of international developers with the shared goal of creating console-quality games for mobile devices. Our award winning titles are universally praised for their outstanding gameplay and next-gen graphics, offering players an exciting and visually stunning experience.
After breaking onto the mobile gaming scene with the Samurai series, MADFINGER Games released the hit title Shadowgun, the first in a long-running franchise. The third-person shooter introduced the world to John Slade and received outstanding reviews from critics and players alike. Shadowgun became the Number One Game in 25 countries and was included the Apple Hall of Fame.
The studio launched another franchise in the summer of 2012 with Dead Trigger. The zombie shooter attracted widespread acclaim, won a number of awards, and quickly became a hit with players. The same year, MADFINGER released Shadowgun: Deadzone, the multiplayer sequel to the original cult favourite. It received numerous accolades and developed a loyal fanbase that enthusiastically supported the game until its withdrawal in April 2019.
The studio’s biggest hit to date, Dead Trigger 2, followed in 2013. It expanded on the premise of the first game, plunging the player into a global fight against a zombie apocalypse. It received 10 million downloads in its first two months, and six years later is still an Editor’s Choice on the Google Play Store.
In 2014 saw a change in direction for MADFINGER with the release of Monzo, a digital model simulator that allows users to relax and build Revel-licensed kits, with a plethora of choices ranging from battleships to dinosaurs. The following year the studio returned to their action roots with UNKILLED, a zombie shooter set in New York that also introduced PvP, Co-OP and Survival Op modes.
The studio’s most ambitious project to date, Shadowgun Legends, launched in spring 2018. Set 30 years after the original Shadowgun, the multiplayer sci-fi shooter pits the player and their friends against a deadly race of alien invaders known as the Torment. Blending elements of FPS and RPG with a subversive sense of humour, Legends frequented top of the year lists and became the benchmark for high-end graphics on mobile devices. It also inspired a multiplayer spinoff, Shadowgun War Games, which is slated for a fall 2019 release.
