Play Portal

Phone‑controlled multiplayer games for public spaces.

Play Portal is our platform for multiplayer games and experiences designed for large-scale public installations. With simple smartphone controls and large-scale displays, Play Portal is perfect for one-off events or long term public installations.

How it works

Connecting to one of our games is as simple as snapping a QR code and heading to a Play Portal website on your phone. Your phone becomes your controller, and you can drop straight into the action! Meanwhile, the game keeps running on the big screen; no pausing, no hassle, just drop-in-drop-out multiplayer fun. We even have a rig that sets up a local wifi network for when there is no 4g connectivity. In this case as soon as connect to the network you are automatically logged straight into the game.

Features

Hold a competition to reward high scores, select giveaway winners at random, or define custom win conditions for bonus prizes. Whatever the rules of the competition, players can opt-in with just an email address, and the system takes care of the rest.

Play Portal tracks a full suite of statistics for the gameplay at your event; how many people are playing, session lengths, high scores, bonus items and more, all in real time. And when the event’s over, get a full breakdown of all the stats that are important to you.

Using our Share Portal plaform each game can utilise built-in sharing functionality; it might be a screen grabs, a video clip, or a gif, but it’s always shareable. Delivered right to a player’s email, they can brag about a new high score to all their friends and followers.

Games

These days we spend as much time making games as playing them. Check out some of our Play Portal titles.
