At age 16 he got his first gig in game development working for a top game developer in the UK, writing titles for PS1. Since then he’s been working on multiple hit titles and even started his own game development company with 40 staff which was later bought out by Midway (before they went under!).
Chris now works with us on our mobile games as head game developer for iOS, Android and OUYA.
Given the complexity of 3D game development, we were pretty happy to meet Thomas, who actually connected with us Through Ross. Thomas is an incredibly talented 3D artist and animator. He’s been working in the film industry and was aching to get his teeth into apps.
Bob came to us during the early production of our PRESi app and helped us with a complex 3D animation process called “Dynamic Cloth Animation”, where a piece of cloth is developed in 3D, and has the ability to (a) be re-rendered in different colours and patterns, and (b) move dynamically like a piece of cloth.

In the App Development industry, it is rare to speak with anyone over the age of 35. While the enthusiasm and can-do attitude of youth is important, we believe we can offer something more… ‘Business Experience’.
At Buzinga we have a balance. We pride ourselves on being able to innovate and utilise the very latest design & functionality in app concepts to add real value to your existing idea as well as having the experience (that only years in business can provide) to manage and deliver a complex development project on time & budget.
Our aim is to always exceed our client’s expectations.
Where did Buzinga come from?
Early in 2012, co-founder Graham McCorkill was looking to have an idea for a mobile app developed. After speaking with several Australian App Developers and engaging one for the initial phase, he had an extremely disappointing experience.
A fortuitous meeting with Logan Merrick, who had been involved with the concept, design and development of over 30 mobile apps started the ball rolling. Several meetings later, Logan & Graham decided to co-found Buzinga Apps to offer a more comprehensive app development service for both individual entrepreneurs and corporates.
Developing, launching and driving a mobile app can be a big task, and the first step to building and implementing a digital strategy is education.
That’s where we work a little differently to other app development companies. Before meeting you the first thing we recommend is that you read our array of online publications to quickly get up to speed with how this all works - click here to see our app development resources.
When we initially meet with you and have the opportunity to discuss your app idea, we will give you an honest opinion of its potential from our experience… We will never take on a new client if we do not believe the project is worth pursuing. That would just be a waste of your time and money.
We have built a team that are passionate about and take great pride in what we do and how we do it. While our key people work from our head office in Melbourne, some of our app marketing and coding specialists are spread out between Europe, UK and USA. We believe it is better to have the best no matter where they are, which can save you time and money.
We aim to deliver a level of customer service that does not seem to be a priority with many other app developers. The process of developing a mobile application is quite foreign to most of our clients, so we are committed to walking you through each phase and help you understand the whole process.
We provide a comprehensive app development service and all the whilst we build you a world-class app, we’ll work with you to help you achieve your goals.
