Description

Eiconic is a UK based independent games studio run by Dave Pollard and Simon Credland. We make the kind of games we love to play.

History

Early history

Founded back in 2006 by a small group of experienced games industry veterans, we set about making our first game, Squeeballs, a fun minigame collection, designed as a technical showcase for PDP's unreleased 'Freedom' controller, released as a title for Wii, 3DS and iOS. During this time we also developed our own in-house engine capable of running on a whole suite of different platforms, including PS3 and Xbox360. We then published our first original IP, Polar Panic, and went on to produce critically acclaimed games such as Mercury Hg and the Vita AR title PulzAR.

After that

Since then we've been able to focus on creating more of our own original IP, releasing Total Recoil first on iOS and Android in November 2012 and then on PlayStation Vita in July 2013. Total Recoil has been downloaded over 1 million times on iOS and Android and has been a great hit on Vita. Following on from Total Recoil's success, we've been hard at work on our next game, Final Horizon, an epic sci-fi 'action tower defence' game for PlayStation 4 and Vita.
