More than 20m people have downloaded this company’s Alien Creeps game, which challenges players to save the world from hordes of invading extraterrestrials. Specialising in free-to-play games for smartphones, tablets and social networks, the Dundee-based studio’s other successes include Crafty Candy and Mystery Match. Fuelled by £7.8m raised from Oxford Capital Partners, Pentech Ventures and Scottish Investment Bank, last year it acquired Derby-based competitor Eight Pixels Square and generated sales of £15.6m. Brothers Richard and Douglas Hare, 47 and 49, the serial entrepreneurs behind the business, claim it is now Britain’s largest independent developer of mobile games.
