Real Serious Games

Our Story

Real Serious Games® come to life!

Karen Sanders and Andrew Goldson co-founded Real Serious Games in Brisbane, Australia ® in 2009 on a shoestring budget, with one programmer and a creative director. Together, they have built and grown the company on hard work and strong ethics.

From idea to successful projects

At our inception, we sold animated videos to the construction industry. We soon diversified into the visualisation space, providing 4D planning through our real time gaming engine platform, built on Unity 3D. Using our own software, we have successfully delivered projects in tender visualisation, project planning and forensic animation. Our 4D planning tool helps clients and project managers to effectively plan and manage their projects from tender, through design and into construction.

Growing Recognition, VR, 4D Planning and expansion into international markets

2014 was a big year that saw us enter the Virtual Reality market, where we delivered a world first in Virtual Reality training and received media coverage on ABC’s Catalyst program. Through a team of highly talented and dedicated individuals, we began embarking on high value projects for organisations and government entities. Over the following years we gained recognition at Austrade and Trade and Investment Queensland as a key innovation business. Recent times have seen a push towards global growth triggering the entry into the Middle East under the brand “Karsta” and the French and UK markets.

Real Serious Games partners with SafetyJourney to access our unique offering in the specialist area of applied Cognitive Neuroscience.

SafetyJourney challenges the design of RSG’s Extended Reality (XR) products, providing alternate constructs for learning outcomes.

RSG’s technical expertise, flexibility and willingness both to learn from, and share with, their partners make them a pleasure to work with.
