Hello Games was started in July 2009 by Sean Murray, Grant Duncan, Ryan Doyle, and David Ream. With combined experience at Criterion, Sumo Digital and Kuju Entertainment, they all decided to leave their respective employment at bigger video game companies and start their own small sized studio. They settled in Guildford, Surrey and began working on ideas for their first game, which became Joe Danger. After the positive reception of Joe Danger, Hello Games moved to a bigger office and began expanding with the hiring of new talent.
Hello Games released their first game, Joe Danger, as a PSN exclusive title in 2010. In August 2011 they announced a sequel called Joe Danger 2: The Movie, which features more varied gameplay and is planned to be released on 'multiple consoles'. In November 2011 they announced a remake of the first game, released this time on XBLM as Joe Danger: Special Edition.
