About Legacy Games
20 Years of Expertise
Legacy Games is a leader in developing, publishing, and distributing award-winning PC and mobile casual games since 1998. We’ve created many popular hidden object, simulation, creativity and adventure game titles based on brands such as Doctor Who, Crayola, Paranormal State, Sherlock Holmes, Criminal Minds, Law&Order, ER and Twilight Zone, to name a few. We mastered the art of marketing and selling games, and while other companies turned away from retail, Legacy doubled down and captured market share, becoming one of the leaders in casual game distribution.
Today Legacy Games partners with many third-party developers to publish and distribute their games in traditional and online retail stores. We work with awesome companies like Her Interactive (Nancy Drew), Artifex Mundi (Enigmatis & Grim Legends series), Jet Dogs (12 Labours of Hercules and Travel Mosaics series), Five-BN (New York Mysteries and Darkness and Flame series), among many others.
