The siblings’ new mobile game now at the service of gamers. New adventure takes place in London
‘They are’ Simay Dinç and Eray Dinç and they are the producers of Recontact:Istanbul and Recontact:Istanbul Eyes of Sky, mobile games offering different experiences with cinematographic images. Those mobile game series was named the best mobile game in Turkey by Apple and introduced in the “Most Innovative Game” category in 153 countries. Now the Dinç siblings embark a global journey from London with Recontact:London.
I was at the launch event of Recontact:London at the British Consulate General İstanbul and Simay Dinç announced the game would be downloadable by Feb 6. But it is ready to on Feb 20 in 12 languages. Dinç said they aimed to reach mobile gamers who want to become cyber detectives and try to solve the mystery in London. We developed five game dynamics in the cinematographic context. For the first time, the game application was exhibited to the market on the iOS platform. We see the App Store like an art gallery. Our work is handled as a work of art, added Dinç.
A 1.5 years production process and investors show interest
Eray Dinç, director of the game, explained the game brings together all units of audiovisual art, ranging from cinema to photography, video art, music and literature. The production process took 1.5 years and covered hundreds of shots in London, software stages, tests and localization. Let me note: having acted in “Game of Thrones”, British actor Ross Mullan stars in the leading role of the game.
By the way, I need to mention the funding for the game. Following the success of the first games, the Dinç siblings gained traction and investors wanted to fund. Now Erdem Yurdanur, Akın Babayiğit and Hande Enes are the first angel investors to the siblings. Erdem Yurdanur was the founder of Maçkolik and acquired by Perform Group, now with a new name under DAZN Group. Currently he is the founder of Admost Mediation in London. Akın Babayiğit is the COO&Cofounder at Tripledot Studios in London and Hande Enes is Member of the Board at Engin Group Consorcium.

Would you like to support TR Technews?
I’m running Turkishtechnews.com, a website on tech developments from Turkey. I will be covering subjects ranging from startups to gadgets, digital economy to social media. I’m keen on new technologies as well. On top of those, I’m interested in drama and cinema, with one short and one long film script and three plays. Holding a B.A degree in English Language and Literature, I’m a tech journalist with 15 years of experience.
The reason why I’m here is to produce good quality journalism and try to remain independent as much as possible. Currently, journalism is torn between vague relationships between brands and journalists, not only in Turkey but also globally. Under such circumstances to remain independent is crucial and I need your support to do so.
