Nocturnal Entertainment Australia


Nocturnal provides the following development services. All services are covered by NDAs, and we guarantee complete client confidentiality. In addition, all Nocturnal employees have extensive liability cover.

We have our own office, so we are able to work both on-site and off-site. Nocturnal is based in Melbourne, Australia, but we would consider relocating across Australia, or worldwide, in order to fulfil contracts.

We specialise in delivering software development services, with more than 40 years combined (and 20 years commercial) development experience. Although games are our forte, we also have extensive experience with commercial development (including robotics, operating systems, compilers, databases, and web development services).

Platforms: PC, mobile, Symbian, handheld, console, embedded systems, web.
Languages include: C#, C, C++, Java, JavaScript, PHP, Perl, SQL, Python, Assembler.
Software Components: Collision engines, GUI, 3D/2D rendering, AI/robotics, audio engines, scripting engines, compiler/linker systems, memory management, game programming, vision processing.

We also have extensive experience with production, documentation, code cleaning, QA (bug finding/removal), code analysis, optimisation (all levels including assembler), interface design, memory leaks/fragmentation (and more).

Sometimes, a fresh perspective on your game can make a world of difference. We pride ourselves on our ability to analyse different game design models and quickly come up with suggestions to make quantifiable improvements to your game. We offer an affordable half-day service, where we visit your studio, analyse your product - and deliver a written report (including a detailed breakdown of suggestions) within 1 working day of the visit.  

Have you ever been in a situation where you are unsure about the quality of work produced by one of your workers - but you don't have the required technical skills (or the time) to understand the work involved? How about having a publisher make what you consider to be unreasonable demands? We offer a discrete service, backed up by a professional guarantee. Contact us for more details.
We have an extensive list of contractors available to cover other types of work (such as art, interface design, documentation & sound services). Contact us for more details.
