WHO WE ARE
TurnMeUp Games is an independent Developer and Production Hub with years of experience producing games and other interactive media.
Our business model is simple—utilize the more than 300 veteran developers we have spread across 3 satellite offices throughout Eastern Europe for all the developmental heavy-lifting, while relying on a talented LA-based team of Producers, Directors, Writers, and Designers to lead and coordinate production.
As the client facing side of development, TurnMeUp's Los Angeles team is responsible for connecting our partners to dev-resources with the right experience for each project’s needs, while managing production until release through our completely transparent and trackable pipeline.
In short, we take the headache out of external development.
WHAT WE DO
Shepherd the brilliance scribbled in notebooks, napkins, and sketchpads into something we can share with the world.
Already built it? We’re here to help bring your Contemporaries and Classics to every platform imaginable.
Gearbox’s iconic, comedic Looter-Shooters are back and gorgeous as ever on Nintendo Switch! We worked tirelessly with 2K and Gearbox to bring these ravenously requested classics to Switch in full 1080p docked and 720p handheld, at 30 FPS and with no downgrading of art assets. On top of that, we included all the trimmings
of the GOTY releases — and newly developed motion controls specifically built for this incredible collection.
JOURNEY TO THE SAVAGE PLANET
Ever wanted to explore a strange new world? Discover diverse wildlife? Poke that wildlife it in the eye, or kick its explosive body into more dangerous animals than your adorable Ray Gun is equipped for? Ever host your own funeral(s) after embarrassing deaths and re-clonings? Did we mention you can DOUBLE self-funeral attendance with Local/Online Co-op, exclusively on Nintendo Switch?
Working closely with Typhoon Studios, we transformed their colorful, comedic debut project into a portable powerhouse on Nintendo Switch – yet they offered us ZERO help on these alliterations (which is fair).
