Pingle Studio’s game development services
Our game development group can build range from pure entertainment games to innovative solutions and VR simulators for educational purposes in numerous industries. Here’s what we can offer:
Concept generation and development.
The unique and compelling concept art is of the utmost importance for any game that strives for stardom. Pingle Studio has a team of concept artists who are passionate and driven and approach every game with professionalism. Whatever the requirements, we are certain we can provide the best artwork, commended by globally recognized concept art specialists and players alike.
We see it as one of our core values to bring to life the visions of our clients. As a game dev studio, we focus on applying our knowledge of all the latest trends and tech to bring you challenging modern games.
With years of experience under our belts and by pouring our souls into it, we can create infinite levels for games and cater for all types of playing styles. Our level designs are engaging, entertaining, and immersive.
For models, textures, animations, as well as game content, logic, and network code. Optimizing for different generations of CPU, GPU, and operating systems is an unavoidable process for gaming solutions. We employ the latest optimization practices to make our clients’ games perform well on all kinds of devices. This way, more players will discover, install, and enjoy your games.
The importance of testing can’t be overestimated. Well-tested games hit the market and take it by storm with smooth performance and are picture-perfect. We approach testing the way surgeons approach their operations: with carefully structured and polished plans, knowing all the requirements, and being 100% ready for anything unpredictable.
Pingle Studio’s game development process
We believe in being flexible to perfectly fit any request our clients come to us with. However, being efficient means having a base to build upon. Our base is the way we approach each stage of the game development lifecycle.
The realm of project managers, this stage is all about getting ready. When our clients come to us with ideas — some of them fairly vague — we flesh them out, adapt them, and plan the game development. This is where we carefully outline the requirements, plan necessary assets and resources, and create teams of certified professionals. In this way, we are prepared for everything, including variables and unforeseen situations.
This is the beating heart of game development, the longest and most strenuous stage, but also the most joyful. This is when the magic happens: our designers, developers, and artists come together, and, led by our seasoned project managers, create something from nothing. First in prototypes, then more and more defined and refined, the game comes to life.
It’s ready but not perfect yet. At this stage, we test, fix bugs, and polish it to perfection. As a game development agency that cares about reputation — our own and our clients’ — we take this stage seriously and throw our all into building great games.
An embryonic idea becoming human, alive and breathing, ready to deliver a superb playing experience to your audience.

Our end-to-end game development team
Here are the specialists we have who can provide full-cycle services or join your project for a specific stage:
The person supervising the project. Our project leads are among those you’ll talk to most, as it’s their job to fully grasp the scope of your game idea, assess the challenges it may present, and come up with solutions that will fit your budget. They make sure that everything proceeds without a hitch.
A person you’ll communicate with regularly. Your project manager will oversee the team and keep track of all activities as well as document them. They’re the ones ensuring transparency and communication. Your project manager will keep you updated on all the goings-on of the project, including timetables, approaching milestones, and scheduled releases.
We have specialists in all development directions. Unity or Unreal Engine, server-side, mobile, web, PC, consoles — the list goes on. With years of experience, they can work independently or in a team, and they can solve virtually anything technical that can potentially hinder the development process.
Where developers are the gears of the creation process, the game designers are the brains behind it. Working out concepts, levels, mechanics, and gameplay, they essentially build engagement and entertainment for players to enjoy.
Quality assurance specialists.
“Nothing is released until I say so!”, says every responsible QA anywhere. Our testers are ISTQB certified and able to find bugs that might be invisible to anyone else. Quality testing is one of the things game development can’t do without, and we’re ready to offer this service at the highest level.
At the heart of any game is its art. It’s the first thing that users see and it’s what can make or break a game. As a game development agency, we don’t limit ourselves and our clients to a single art style. We have a team of artists that can do just about anything in both 2D and 3D. Medieval fantasy, steampunk, modern-day fashion, a gaze far into the far future? Any visual style to fit your game idea — we’ve got it covered.

How to hire game developers?
You generally have two options to build a game development team: (1) Hiring freelance or in-house specialists one by one using traditional recruiting; or (2) Finding a company that outsources game development specialists.
Both options are viable, though the second one obviously saves you some time and effort as established companies have full-cycle development teams. Hiring an external company will also offer you more legal protection, as respectable outsourcers sign NDAs.
What should you consider when looking for the necessary experts?
- Their past successful projects, especially those in your genre
- Their location — to keep in mind possible time differences
- Their soft skills, compatibility with you in terms of work ethic, cultural fit, and reliability
- Their hourly rates, if your budget is limited to some degree (which it usually is).
You can usually find freelance developers on platforms like Upwork and game forums and platforms like IndieDB; for in-house employees, LinkedIn is a solid option; game outsourcing groups can be found via search and on platforms like GoodFirms. At Pingle Studio, you can request a free consultation to have your game development questions answered.
How to get started in game development?
If you have a game idea and you’re looking to outsource it to a game development company, there are some preparatory activities you can work on to make the process smoother.
- Outline your idea with as many details as you can. The details we’re talking about here include game setting, genre, plot, and characters.
- If you have a vision of how your game should look, create references for your future team. It can be in words or in images, like a mood board or a Pinterest board.
- Choose who to entrust your game with for development. Approach a company (or several) and discuss with them your idea, listen to suggestions and evaluation as to timeframes and costs. Remember to request an NDA prior to revealing any details that make your game unique.
- Start the development with your team, stay in contact with them and communicate any thoughts you have on development.
There, you’ve gotten started in game development :)
What is the first phase of game development?
The first phase of working with a game development company is called pre-development and it involves creating the bare bones of your future game. This phase is all about gathering as many specifics as you can and putting them together to create a vision.
A big part of pre-development is writing up requirements, creating concepts, and fleshing out the future game. There will be a lot of discussions, asking and answering questions, shaping the idea into something solid.
At Pingle, the pre-development stage means we draft the necessary assets, frameworks, and decide on the game engines and platforms. Based on all the information we’ve acquired, we carefully select the best game designers, artists, developers, and testers, who will deliver a splendid game in the shortest time possible, while keeping up with quality expectations (and exceeding them).
Pre-development is the planning stage that ensures the actual development proceeds without a hitch and avoids any common pitfalls that can be predicted.
What language is used for game development?
- C++< is one of the more complex programming languages, but one of its finest features is high-level optimization, which makes it the best language to build games with a variety of stylized objects.
- Java< was inspired by C++ but made simpler and more versatile. Java offers reusable code and is compatible with almost any platform.
C#< is the language of the Unity3D game engine and programmers can write games for the most well-known platforms in use today with it, from Windows to consoles to mobile devices. C# is highly scalable, which makes it a popular solution for game development.
