GameLab Istanbul develops game software and game engines. Our goal is to establish a large game portfolio of products of AAA quality. Gamelab Istanbul's founding team is one of the oldest and most experienced teams in the mobile gaming industry in the world. We combined the experience of our founder team with the dynamism and passion of our developer group of university students. Gamelab Istanbul has Turkey's largest mobile game development team.




Our founding team's game development adventure began in 2006 when we established Mobilenter Mobile Gaming Studios. Mobilenter is one of the first companies in the industry. By the end of 2010, the company had a portfolio of 21 games and 3 offices. The offices were located in Istanbul, Lancaster / England and North San Jose / USA locations. At that time, 2 of the top 10 downloads of Getjar, the world's largest appstore site, were Mobilenter games. The company's games were being prepared in 11 languages. The games were sold in over 100 operators in 46 countries. In the following years, during the end of Java phones, Mobilenter went to shrink and turned off its overseas offices. To publish Android games, Nitra Game Software Ltd. It was established in April 2014.


Our founding team developed and published 1 OpenGL ES-like graphical interface, 13 game engines and 26 games during the 11 years from the beginning of 2006 to the end of 2016. Although Nitra is a small company, it is one of the companies with the greatest know-how in the world today.

Following the publication of the Ministry of Technology's new R&D Regulation in August 2016, KOSGEB allocated Turkey's first R&D support to Nitra in the gaming industry. Within the scope of this support, an office was provided free of charge at the Technology Development Center located in the campus of Istanbul Aydın University.


According to the Turkish R&D Regulation, if an external game engine is used while developing game software, the product loses the characteristic of R&D project. However, there are very few companies and experts who are experienced in game engine development in the world. We decided to set up Gamelab Istanbul to train expert developers and designers in this particular area. Our founding team moved to the new office in the Technology Development Center, cooperated with the universities and laid the foundation of Gamelab Istanbul.

Gamelab Istanbul, founded with the participation of 31 staff, Nitra directors and 28 university students, started its activities as the biggest mobile game software team of Turkey on February 13, 2017.
