Founded by Jacques and Melanie Leemans with the aim of helping small game studios to develop and publish games, XGameDev have been producing games, applications and interactive animations since 2010.
Over the years as we have grown with the company, we now also cater for corporate application designs and development solutions.
We do all software design, engineering and development work in house, and work with a variety of talented content creation professionals to produce 2D and 3D art, UI/UX design, voice-over/narration and audio.
XGameDev is an independent games studio for hire based in Torquay, Victoria, Australia.
Thanks to all our clients and players who made it possible for us to reach this milestone
In late 2015 the company relocated to Torquay, Victoria, Australia, where we have been based up until today.
In 2015 my wife, Melanie Leemans joined the team as a Game Designer, Level Designer and game developer. Melanie has just under 19 years Information Technology experience on Windows platforms and over 5 years Unity and game development experience. She gained her Certification in Digital and Interactive Games in 2018
Through freelancing XGameDev managed to acquire a reliable name in the freelancing community for outstanding work and services provided.
XGameDev was formed in 2010 by me, Jacques Leemans. I am a passionate software developer, with skills in Unity, GIS, and C#. Over the years I have sharpened my skills and now am a full stack developer, with project management and consultation skills. I wanted to take my experience and assist other companies and individuals with the skills they required in development.
The pleasure was all ours. Thanks again we love our little game and it has been a huge hit.

A year ago we started working with Jacques and we feel very fortunate for his contributions. Jacques is brilliant, passionate and at the top of his field. His ethics and attention to detail should be the standard for any freelancer to strive for. We will definitely look for opportunities to work with him again.

Great working with Jacques! Even though the project was more complex then he assessed he made it happen without any problems. Also, he was very patient with the payment, as the project had many rounds of testing and correcting, which was done to extreme detail. Top lad!
Jacques was really great. He completed the job on time and went beyond what I expected. I will use him again for our next project!
Melanie is the best mentor I have worked with on this site. She is very polite and responsive. She kept me updated at all times. Was a pleasure working with her.
Best mentor on this website hands down.
Amazing to work with can't recommend enough.
Very easy going and great to mentor when it came to my questions and help. Would recommend.
I came to Melanie for my gaming/coding needs, she did an incredible job!!!! I highly recommend Melanie for a session, tutoring, projects etc as she is great on time, great at explaining, and extremely smart and experienced based off her description. I needed her for Unity and the work she assisted me with was impeccable! Price is very reasonable too, you honestly can’t beat choosing her as your mentor. Highly highly recommend, I guarantee you will be impressed and if you are on a time crunch and stressed like I was, she will relieve that for you. I call her a life saver as her help really came in clutch for me. She is also very friendly and patient with her customers. You can also have a conversation with her and she will hype you up and make you feel better. For example, I stressed to her about one of my classes and she made me feel better with her statements. Team choose Mel!!!!!.
