MADE IN VANCOUVER, PLAYED EVERYWHERE.
We are an experienced group of game developers who have worked on some of the most successful titles of all time. But we didn’t let that stop us – we came together to bring our skills, experience and talent to mobile and browser. Roadhouse makes games we want to play ourselves, and share with our friends and family. Some of our games are original, like Pin-Up Power, and some of our games we build for our customers, like MechWarrior Tactics for example. Most of our games are free-to-play, and launching these game is just the beginning. Games are a service, and analytics are a critical part of our design and development. Whether a gamer is our customer or yours, expect a fun and well-balanced experience from every Roadhouse game!
MADE IN VANCOUVER, PLAYED EVERYWHERE
WE MAKE GAMES FOR OURSELVES AND OTHERS
Roadhouse Interactive is an end-to-end producer, developer and operator of games for mobile and tablet. Based in Vancouver, BC, our experienced team has collectively delivered or played key roles on some of the most well-known and successful game franchises of all time. Roadhouse was founded by James Hursthouse, Ian Verchere and Tarrnie Williams in December of 2009. We started with Family Guy Online, a browser-based “MMLOL.” The Open Beta never crashed, and we deployed new content weekly, updated the website and operated the game successfully until sunset in January 2013. With MechWarrior Tactics currently in Closed Beta, our attention is turned to browser, mobile and tablet. Roadhouse currently has a slate of original and third-party games in development. Our teams are flexible and our capacity scalable. We are always looking for great people and partners to work with.

THE BACKSTAGE CONVERSATIONS
Our team is passionate about playing, making and designing games. Our blog is a place to share interesting ideas, articles, thoughts, and data on the development process. This is backstage at Roadhouse. It’s a look behind the scenes, the people and the process that goes into a Roadhouse game. Our blog is a conversation about the game industry and where it’s going, not just in Vancouver, but around the world. Conversations are two-way: we hope you’ll come back regularly to see what is on our minds, and to let us know what is on yours.
