Torus Games Pty. Ltd. is a video game developer founded in 1994, and is one of the oldest and most consistently stable game development studios in Australia.[1]

Torus Games began developing their first game in 1994, a Game Boy and Game Gear game based on the film Stargate, published by Acclaim Entertainment.[2] Torus has released over 100 titles.

Torus Games has a single, scalable cross-platform game engine that actively supports the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, Wii U, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, iOS, Nintendo DSi and PlayStation Vita. The Torus game engine uniquely runs on consoles, handhelds (including those without floating point support) and mobile phones, and their unified asset pipeline allows Torus to deliver the same game from the same common code-base across all hardware platforms.

Torus Games is located in Bayswater, Victoria. The managing director is Bill McIntosh. Torus is a family business.[4]

The company is most commonly known for its family action/adventure games based on well-known licenses.[5] Torus Games' most recent releases include the Nintendo-exclusive Penguins of Madagascar: The Game[6] on 3DS, Wii and Wii U, Falling Skies: The Game[7] on Wii U, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, and How to Train Your Dragon 2[8] on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U and 3DS, all published by Little Orbit.
