Mostafa Hafez CEO, Instinct Games

Talespinners quickly grasped our concept and were immediately able to work it into a captivating and inspirational story. Whenever an issue with the narrative came up, Talespinners were always quick to respond and promptly came up with solutions.

Allan Plenderleith Director, Splendy Games

It was a pleasure working with Ian on The Bunker, he has an expert eye for game design detail and an incredible talent for bringing real humanity to storylines.  His logic in game narrative structure is flawless and he brought an amazing attention to detail to The Bunker, providing layer after layer of storytelling, making the game richer and more immersive.

Simon Barratt Director, Cooperative Innovations

Giles and Ian did a brilliant job of understanding our requirements and delivering a great story bible for us to work with as we went through pre-production with our coop VR RPG ‘Raiders of Erda’. The staged approach to feedback and iteration between their team and ours meant that we got exactly what we were after and we can’t wait to continue working with them as the game now goes into full production! Thanks guys!

Alexander Zacherl Managing Director / Game Director, Fairytale Distillery
We had a rough and sprawling story and lore for The Exiled that organically developed over years of development. Ian came and turned that chaos into a structured and coherent document, in the course solving the many logical problems and inconsistencies that had developed. With tiny amounts oversight and feedback from our side he came up with an interesting lore and turned that lore into engaging words. Will work with him again on future projects.
Chris Payne Managing Director, Quantum Soup
Talespinners have been wonderful to work with; enthusiastic, imaginative, and organised. I thoroughly enjoyed our story meetings. They’ve delivered excellent dialogue and plenty of strong ideas that have lifted our narrative, and spotted story problems early that might have resulted in wasted work. Even if you have a good handle on your story, I would recommend bouncing your ideas off Talespinners – they’ll come back even better.
Arash Amini Producer, Lion Game Lion

Working with the guys at Talespinners was a very straightforward, creative and collaborative experience. It took very little conversation to get on the right track and move forward with some excellent narrative and conversational dialogue being written. We worked together on RAID: World War II by Lion game Lion, which has a complex VO structure. Talespinners grasped this very quickly and we went on to write some great dialogue in character. We hope to have a working relationship with Talespinners for some time to come.

Kirsty Rigden Producer and Lead Designer on Velocity 2X

Giles demonstrated fantastic knowledge of story telling techniques, and worked with us to help develop our characters to have real personalities with substance and motivation.

Gaz Wright Design Manager, Double Eleven

Ian’s experience was invaluable at Double Eleven, not only was he able to write the character scripts and in-game plot, but he also took full ownership of that role, implementing and adapting all aspects of the narrative as the game evolved over time.

Iain Lowson Writer, Blue Toad Murder Files

Giles is one of those people everyone wants to work with again. Dedicated and hard working, able to communicate well, friendly and able to make the tough decisions.

Olly Bennett Managing Director, Cardboard Sword

Ian doesn’t just do the job you give him. He brings new ideas, new approaches and directions, and pulls, sculpts and batters your ideas until they look far shinier than they ever were - or would have been – without him. He is an excellent writer, coder, and logical mind that will help you and your project in far more ways than what is written on any contract or agreement.

Harry Harrold Creative Lead, Profound Decisions

Ian managed a team of writers working on a game for Profound Decisions. His team brought a problematic creative brief to fruition in a way that went beyond any of my expectations. I was extremely impressed with the results, most notably his attention to detail in the output.
