The Kwalee name
Kwalee is the Australian aboriginal for “wait for me”. It was the name of David Darling's grandfather's sailing boat which David sailed on frequently in Australia in his youth. David's grandfather was a TV engineer who taught him electronics. The name Kwalee is thus a homage to the grandfather who started David on his career.
Kwalee employs about a dozen technical, marketing and administrative staff, most with high grade academic qualifications. The Chief Marketing Officer is well known industry veteran Bruce Everiss, who worked with David at Codemasters.
Kwalee is developing proprietary game server technology to enable game features to be realised. In addition they are building libraries of assets. A game codenamed “Vegemite” is under development to prove this technology and the company has release their first game, Gobang Social, which is available worldwide on the Apple App Store.
