Overview edit · view history

N3V Games is a game development and publishing company based in Helensvale, Australia. The company was initially founded as n3vrf41l Publishing in 2005 by Graham Edelsten and Tony Hilliam and it was announced in May 2006. It was established by the directors of Auran Games Pty Ltd. as a separate company so Auran could focus entirely on game development. Graham Edelsten was also one of Auran's co-founders. Initially n3vrf41l focused on publishing and distributing games in Australia. The company published games by companies such as JoWooD Entertainment AG, Paradox Interactive AB and Monte Cristo Multimedia, but they also licensed titles from Auran such as the Trainz games and the eventually abandoned social project The Hive.

On 17th December 2007 Auran Games went into voluntary administration after the release of the MMO Fury and a majority of the staff was laid off, except for a small group to continue work on the Trainz series. Eventually Auran became a subsidiary of n3vrf41l. Around 2009 the name was changed to N3V Games and with the acquisition of the Trainz franchise the company started development activities, such as the creation of Trainz Simulator 12 and bringing the series to mobile devices. Publishing activities for third-party titles were scaled back.

In addition the studio started releasing games for mobile devices based on new franchises in 2011 with titles such as Dead on Arrival, Dojo Madness, Plank’d and Heist: The Score.
