Established in 2001, Big Ant Studios has grown to become the largest independent video game developer in Australia. Big Ant Studios have one of the largest teams of coders and developers and can assist the development of plans and provision of personnel with specialised expertise to augment a client’s team. The Big Ant team also owns all its technology and can assist in the development of tools specific to requests.

Big Ant Studios have developed internal solutions such as game engines and production frameworks that are available to purchase or use for the development of simulations. Together with an expert understanding of the premium game development tools and engines, Big Ant can assist in the selection of tools for particular developments. Talk to Big Ant before you finalise your decision on tools for your development.

Big Ant Studio’s expertise is that of interaction. As video game developers Big Ant Studios have learnt many ways to increase interaction with their products. High Fidelity is being sought by many end users and there are ways to increase the perception of fidelity and increase interaction and end results.

Big Ant Studios have seen the results of the massive research and development in the entertainment industry are being applied in the training domain – resulting in engaging, cost-effective simulations. Big Ant Studios have a large team of talented developers and present an immediate ability to assist with the development of virtual environment and simulation.

The Big Ant team can assist companies in the selection and use of game technology and its’ potential for use in training and simulated environments.

Two areas Big Ant identified as their strengths are those of audio and lighting. So any simulation, defence or otherwise, that is looking to increase the interaction with their simulators; consider the value of improved audio and lighting to increase the perception of high fidelity.


Big Ant Studios are leading video game developers. This gives us an expertise in the use of game engines such as Unity, Unreal, Crytek and FMOD and can assist in both the use and understanding of these tools.

We are experts in interaction and can assist in the development of simulators that will be both cost effective and demonstrably increase the interaction of end users against full high fidelity and the increased costs associated with that. Big Ant Studios also come from the commercial world of video games. The result here is we work faster and can deliver projects in less time than non-gaming providers.
