By combining creativity, ingenuity and technology, Cauldron produces games that have a positive impact on people’s lives. Over the last six years, the team have invented money-saving games, mortgage-reducing apps and educational toys.
Going far beyond pure entertainment, the team believe every product should be extraordinary, imaginative and exceed the established norms of their industry.
The team at Cauldron were brought together in 2015 and quickly formed a motley crew of technologists and creatives, united by the potential of their ideas. For Cauldron, sectors like finance and education became a playground where the most adventurous ideas could come to life.
Cauldron never works under a single methodology; they build their methods and approach intuitively around each idea and collaborate with industry partners to ensure the results are beautiful, market-ready and unprecedented.
From 2015 to 2021, Cauldron was an internal design laboratory for Thought Machine, before becoming a fully independent entity in September 2021.
