1 Simple Game was built under the premise to entertain the world, developing incredible and enjoyable experiences for our players no matter if it rains, snows or after a zombie invasion.
Working with an amazing team of highly determined and talented individuals, and building a sustainable business from which our community can benefit from… all while having a lot of fun doing it.
Video games offer us the opportunity to combine art, technology, programming, storytelling, marketing, and sound in unique ways that can entertain and inspire our players. Through our collaborative effort, we strive to build a healthy ecosystem that will allow people that share the same ideals to work making the best experiences for a worldwide audience for many years, which also serve as a reference of how Mexico and LATAM can compete on a global scale.
As part of the expansion strategy of 1 Simple Idea, in early 2013 an internal game development cell was formed with the goal of creating casual games based on original intellectual property.
In April 2014 Mugogy Jump, the first product of this new initiative, was released for PS Vita and iOS platforms.
Our second game, Mucho Taco was released on September 2015 for iOS and Android platforms, becoming a worldwide hit with over 2.1 million downloads and receiving several aknowledgments including a Best of App Store award from Apple.
Deus Cult, our 3rd title, was released worldwide in November 2017.
In 2019 we were selected by Google to be part of its acceleration program for indie game developers (Google - Indie Game Accelerator) where they selected 30 studios (from more than 1,700 applicants) from developing countries all over the world, to take a 2 week long seminar at Google's HQ at Singapore and a 5 week long virtual follow up to finish our objectives, in this program we learned to be more professional and how to take better business decisions taking in consideration the market / user needs.

July 2020 marks a new era on the studio as we launch our title "The Lullaby of Life" on Apple Arcade available worldwide for iOS, tvOS y MacOS, being this our first multiplatform game.
At the moment we are in the middle of production of 2 games, "Chronoloop" & "Room Roller".
