NZ’s newest game export is Blood Gate, a mid-core action RPG on mobile, backed by publishing heavyweights DeNA. This free to play title comes from Outsmart – who are known for SmallWorlds, the casual virtual world played by 25 million.

Key learnings in prototyping, negotiating publishers, game design, art approach, and technical development will be shared by 4 seniors from Outsmart. By uncovering their methods, they are excited to offer several applicable ideas for your projects.


  • Shaveer Mirpuri – Studio Director
  • Gustav Seymore – Head of Design & Production
  • Steve Salmond – Senior Developer
  • Andrew Muir – Senior Artist
