Rebellion: a Windows Phone success story


The team at Oxford-based game studio Rebellion has found rapid success on the Windows Phone platform. In particular, their intense zombie-shooter games for touch-screen devices are a huge hit with gamers worldwide.

Co-founded by brothers Jason and Chris Kingsley more than 20 years ago, Rebellion is an indie games developer that creates immersive titles for PCs, consoles, and Nokia Lumia smartphones among other mobile devices.

We recently caught up with the brothers, learning more about their work, their passion for gaming, as well as some of the secrets to their success. A big part of this has been support from Nokia for Dredd vs. Zombies which, according to Chris, has “really increased our downloads, and commensurate with that we have had an increase in our revenue as well”. Rebellion easily surpassed one million downloads across Windows Store and Windows Phone Store with Dredd vs. Zombies.
