The impact of games on us as both individuals and as a society has become undeniably large over the last couple of years. Games are not only used to entertain, but also to simulate, educate and improve overall health. The ability to interact with a game system enables a level of immersion unmatched by any other medium. It allows us to create and share truly unique and meaningful experiences.
The indisputable power of games as a medium is reflected in the thousands of Apps and Games released per day. Companies big and small, everybody wants an app these days. But why do only a few of these succeed where most others fail?
The name Ludosophia is derived from the latin words "Ludus", which stands for the concept of structured play, and "Sophia", which means wisdom. Together, they form the core of what proper Game Design is all about, the wisdom of games. This company was founded in 2017 with a strong belief in this principle.
Ever since then, our aim is to design and provide proper, manageable and effective game solutions and tailor them to our customer's specific requests or constraints. From a simple brainstorming session to a full-fledged game design document, from a competitive market analysis to complete quality assurance management, we provide whatever our clients need in terms of game design and production management.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you provide design solutions for video games only?The world of games is much, much bigger than just video games. Card game or board game requests are more than welcome as well. Even games to play outside, the Gamification of any activity and the design of physical controllers and/or attributes to assist with these activities fall under the same category. To reduce it to its purest core, any form of interactive, structured play needs some sort of design, which we are eager to help you with.
Are you specialised in designing games for certain platforms or using specific hardware?Any platforms, from PC to Android/iOS and from consoles to your dinner table are viable options. There are no hardware restrictions either, provided we get to test/experience the possibilities and/or restrictions of the specific hardware you have in mind for your game. We already have experience designing for the Tobii Eye Tracker, Dreamoc HD3, Pillo, NuvoAir and HTC Vive and are always open to designing for other (experimental) hardware. In fact, we enthusiastically embrace innovative technologies and welcome the opportunities they bring to provide meaningful gameplay experiences.
What about designs for other interactive media, like mobile applications or websites?"No games at all? Well, it's a bit boring perhaps, but it still needs a design, so it's definitely possible.
Are your designs a guaranteed success?There are no guarantees in life. Compare designing a game to taking a multiple choice quiz and guessing all the answers. You might just pass, with enough luck it's even possible to score 100%, but odds are you will simply fail. With us on board, you’ll have someone who studied for the test. We make it our business to know.
Is there anything you cannot design?Airbags.. They just keep blowing up in our faces.
My question was not answered in this section, what can I do?"Please, feel free to ask us anything through the contact form or email. We will get back to you as soon as possible to make sure we answer your questions satisfactorily and offer good customer service. ^^
