Hyperspective is (or at least was) doing work with Unity.

Hey Sam, That's pretty cool that HPU has a course that teaches game development. UH Manoa has some courses in game development, but they happen very rarely.

At this point I think HAMA probably has the most up to date list, but you could also try ask IGDA Honolulu.

I'm very interested too.  I teach a game programming course at HPU: http://www.techhui.com/events/csci-3651-game-programming-at-hpu-fal...

You can see some games from previous semesters here: https://sites.google.com/site/hpustudentprojectshowcase/csci-3651-g...

I'm trying to include interviews with game developers in the class.  So far I have lots from the mainland US, Canada, Europe and a couple of Hawaii base d independents, but I'd love to get more Hawaii games companies involved

HI Ryan, I would love to know about them too! I saw the posting you posted here, but thanks for posting it!

Yes I would think that there are more freelancers, and only a few companies based there. Based on the code jamm last year there is a lot of interest in gaming in Hawaii. Also the Hawaii Flash User Group is focusing more on Gaming now too.

I am trying to apply the game conference I am setting up in Honolulu on June 1st, trying to get the word out.

thanks so much for your help!

There are a lot of independents, but very few mid- to large-sized firms. Tried to find the five tracked by the state a couple of years ago:

If there are any other multi-employee gaming companies based here, I'd love to know about 'em!

Comment by John Barrett on December 5, 2012 at 6:18am

Does anybody have a listing of game companies in Hawaii?

Comment by Timothy Webb on December 8, 2011 at 10:20pm

Yeah there should be a few of us around.  Gorm Lai will be there as well.  Peter and I will be doing a prototyping workshop tomorrow night and I think Gorm is doing an Ignite talk.  Email tim@igdahonolulu.org and we'll see if we can meet up at lunch or something.  That goes for everyone on here.
