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.[3]

The company is most commonly known for its family action/adventure games based on well-known licenses.[4] Recent DreamWorks titles include Rise of the Guardians: The Video Game[5] for Wii, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS, and The Croods: Prehistoric Party[6] for Wii, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS, and the Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo DS versions of Turbo: Super Stunt Squad,[7] based on DreamWorks Animation's film Turbo; all published by D3 Publisher of America.
