About Us

Shipping games is hard.

You know it, we know it.

CodeBeast can help. We are a group of experienced engineers who have shipped many games on the major console platforms and PC, and provide premium contracting services for the games industry.

Whether it is optimization, bugfixing, ports, feature development, or middleware integration, CodeBeast can jump in and provide immediate results.

We've been in your shoes

Our team has years of experience building and shipping games. We have worked on consoles from the PS1 to the PS4, from the original Xbox to the Xbox One, and PC titles as well.

From our experience on game teams, we know the difference between a good contractor and a bad one. We believe in delivering high quality code in a short amount of time. We work hard for our clients and love a good challenge. Contact us today.

Our Team's Pedigree

Our team has made ground-breaking and award-winning games.

We can help you do the same.

BioShock Infinite

Before we formed CodeBeast, our team was the Core Technology Team for BioShock Infinite at Irrational Games. We extensively modified UnrealEngine 3 in order to meet the demanding goals of that game, and provide a great experience on both consoles and PC. Our work touched most areas of the engine including physics, streaming, rewriting the lighting pipeline, proprietary 'Floating Worlds' tech, optimizations on all platforms, and much more. BioShock Infinite garnered 187 awards and nominations, and scored a metacritic rating of 94.

Technically speaking, it's difficult to believe that Infinite is running on six- and seven-year-old hardware.

John Woo Presents Stranglehold

Before we went to Irrational Games, the majority of our team was the core of the Stranglehold programming team at Midway Games. We extensively modified a much less mature UnrealEngine 3, and as with BioShock Infinite later, wanted a great experience on all platforms. The massive destruction system in Stranglehold required a completely new physics integration based on Havok, large architectural changes to the engine, and extensive optimizations. Stranglehold shipped on PS3 before Epic shipped a PS3 title, which was a particular challenge. Stranglehold garnered 12 awards and nominations.

...Stranglehold certainly delivers, largely due to the positively otherworldly tech that underpins the game.
