NaturalMotion

NaturalMotion Ltd is a leading games and technology company based in Oxford, London, San Francisco, and Brighton. Its high-end mobile games label, NaturalMotion Games, is one of the most successful and fastest growing mobile gaming companies in the UK.

The company creates ultra-high quality free-to-play games that combine polished gameplay with high-end 3D graphics.

NaturalMotion Games’ CSR Racing for iOS released in July 2012. It reached number 1 in the Top Free and Top Grossing charts in over 70 countries worldwide and was the only title featured on stage during Apple’s WWDC 2012 conference. The company announced that the game generated more than $12 million revenue a month

The company’s next title, Clumsy Ninja, was revealed during Apple’s iPhone 5 keynote.

NaturalMotion Technology produces leading animation software products such as the award-winning euphoria engine - a break-through in real-time character animation, and used in games such as GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. NaturalMotion’s other run-time animation product, Morpheme, is the industry’s first graphically authorable animation engine. Morpheme is the most widely used animation engine in the console and PC games industry.
