The initial idea for Outerlight was born from a love of games and game playing in all its forms. Inspired by industry legends Peter Molyneux, Sid Meier, John Carmack and games which broke the mould like Counterstrike, Civilisation and Black & White, the directors have been working to establish the company since December 2002 in the strong conviction that Outerlight can do it better.

Unlike most games companies, good game design sits at the heart of the company and we value good game ideas over bleeding edge technology.

The company have offices in Dalkeith, Midlothian, just outside Edinburgh and are currently working on a number of game projects.
