Founded in 1996 in Montreal, PLAYMIND is a collaborative studio specializing in digital creation and video games. For more than 15 years, the studio has specialized in the design, production and development of digital environments. By combining a strategic analysis of needs and trends with the rapid design of prototypes using state-of-the-art technologies, PLAYMIND produces interactive installations, immersive environments and games for mobile phones, virtual reality, augmented reality and consoles. The great diversity of the projects produced by the studio is echoed by many of its employees, who are corporate clients as well as cultural and museum institutions. The studio is proud of the various projects it has undertaken alongside the Montréal Science Center, the Biosphère, the Musée d'Argenteuil and the Grande Bibliothèque. As a service provider for two of the world's leading exhibitions in 2000 and 2005, Playmind also collaborates with a wide variety of art events around the world. In addition to its customer services, PLAYMIND is now designing its own video games, including its first title, The InnerFriend, which will be released in the spring of 2018. This major production lasted 3 years and was produced with CMF funding. It has been a major factor of change for PLAYMIND, which has grown from a small 5-person service provider to a strong gaming development studio with more than 15 employees.
The PLAYMIND studio production team consists of immersive and interactive experience designers, game designers, 2D and 3D artists, videographers, special effects designers and programmers.
