About Relentless

Relentless was founded with the goal of making games for everybody.

Over the last 10 years, Relentless has pioneered games for everybody by first focussing on social play in the living room and subsequently delivering high quality mobile games. We created the BAFTA-winning Buzz! quiz franchise, a virtual TV game show that lets you take part as a contestant. We subsequently collaborated with National Geographic and Microsoft’s Interactive TV unit to create Kinect Nat Geo TV for which we won the 2012 New Media Award in the prestigious Panda Wildscreen TV awards. As such, we are the only games company in the world to win awards normally associated with TV.

Murder Files continues our tradition of innovating where TV and games meet. As the editor of Eurogamer, Tom Bramwell, says “Murder Files is still unmistakably a Relentless game, because it makes the difficult job of entertaining a diverse group appear effortless.” Murder Files is a 6-part mini-series where players are invited to enjoy a quintessentially British murder mystery. Murder Files draws on Agatha Christie but adds a good dose of Carry On and Monty Python to make a fun and entertaining interactive experience. Initially a PS3 game, we have transitioned Murder Files to mobile and have had number 1 spots with the iPad version as well as a number 2 spot with the Kindle Fire version.

We currently have several new games in development, including a follow-up to Murder Files and a new IP in the adventure-puzzle genre. We continue to make entertainment that anybody can enjoy.
