We have been developing games, application and animations since 2010.
XGameDev was founded by Jacques Leemans and Melanie Leemans with the aim of helping small game studios to develop and publish games.
Over the years as we have grown with the company, we now cater for corporate application designs and development solutions.
We do all software engineering/development work in house, and only outsource content creation requirements, like graphics, narration and audio.
We are based in Victoria, Australia

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!!!!!.
