kunst-stoff GmbH is an award-winning game developer with the mission to create interactive games for international audiences and markets with a high conceptual and artistic value. Our strength is the development of original games, with a unique gameplay, which have won important awards and continue to do so. We have worked with some of the key players in the international game industry, such as Nintendo on “Galaxy Racers”, a game that was internationally published in 2010 by Ubisoft. The game won the German Developer Award as “Best Children’s’ Game 2010”, amongst others. In summer and autumn 2011, we self-published an action puzzle game “The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic” for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch as well as for PC and Mac. The game received excellent reviews and won many awards: position 5 of „Best iPhone games 2011“on metacritic.com, iPad and Mac App Store “Game of the week“, etc. In 2012 we released “The Great Jitters: Haunted Hunt” (won the German Developer Award 2012 as Best Social Game).
