We're on a mission to break rules
and change the gaming universe for good.
Aphelio are a bold games and interactive design company, with the ambition to bring high-end, emotionally engaging experiences to audiences, wherever they are.
We aim to take great ideas and launch them into the world. We plan to change people's perceptions of existing business models, genres and platforms - and invent some new ones along the way.
There is no clear map to innovation. There never was. There is only passion, drive, and a little bit of madness, with the confidence to get away from the crowd. The courage to rewrite the rule book, and travel to places even the most senior adventures wouldn't dare to explore.
Aphelio aim to take our work to new audiences, even audiences that wouldn't normally associate themselves with interactive entertainment. By creating experiences that are tailored to be inclusive, rather than selective, we can foster diverse communities of gamers from all creeds and backgrounds.

Aphelio are a games studio that embraces instability. Platforms are ever changing, audience's tastes are evolving, and the technology we build upon is ever-progressing. Aphelio embrace and aid this change instead of combatting it.
We adopt the latest technologies and practices fast and develop for the latest and most original platforms. We enhance what makes them good, mixing in our passion for good design and usability, and continue to experiment on our work even after launch.
Aphelio understand that the human mind benefits from being stimulated by beautiful and engaging designs. We make even the simplest of concepts a stylistic experience worthy of a second glance.
Whether it be a new platform, marketplace, technology or genre: Aphelio are keen to try new approaches and support and tweak unproven ideas and approaches.
The universe never stops spinning. We see a lot of issues that affect the quality of gaming experiences for the end user. We plan to deliver a string of new models and approaches in response.
Aphelio was formed with the belief that in order to to truly create immersive and engaging experiences in interactive entertainment, new approaches and practices must be tested, released, and tweaked regularly.
The co-founders of Aphelio are a blend of business expertise, coding genius and original artistry, all bonded together with the passion and determination to create experiences that engage and enrich the lives of their audiences.
