About the Company

Our story started with a talking cat that repeats everything you say in a funny voice. That adorable creation was how the global Talking Tom phenomenon was born. Nine years, 9 billion game downloads, a few times as many video views and a worldwide merchandising program later, we’ve gone way beyond talking cats.

Behind our success is a community of creators making art that gets seen by millions every day. To be a creator on such a stage is incredibly rewarding, but also a big responsibility. We honor the scope of our reach by focusing on quality over quantity and always pushing beyond our limits to deliver the best possible entertainment experience - be it in our award-winning games, web-series or in the office. 

Our success is fuelled by some of the best artists in the industry. Because we know the value of good art, we invest in the professional growth of every individual who joins our ranks. We expect nothing but the best results, but always support each other on the way and keep the atmosphere light even when the work gets tough. 

Check out how some of our artists feel about working at Outfit7 Group:

Larisa wasn’t sure drawing cats and dogs was her thing, but soon realised there’s a lot more to it.

Helder is convinced he found a jewel in Ljubljana, the charming capital he now calls home.

Eran, one of the top character designer in the industry, loves seeing his work bring joy around the world.
