Alcuin Capital Partners is pleased to announce a multi-million pound growth capital investment in Dovetail Games, a market-leader in the development and publishing of simulation games, to fund the development of a range of new products being released next year.


Dovetail Games was established in 2009, specialising in the development and publishing of simulation entertainment products. The company has grown from 7 employees to over 130 people based across two locations in Kent and Scotland since its launch. Initially responsible for producing the Train Simulator series of products on PC, Dovetail has expanded its roster of games to include flight and fishing simulations, available for both PC and console. Dovetail Games is an award winning company, ranked in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 in 2015.

We all look forward to working together on the future of our simulation products as we strive to deliver world-class simulation games to our loyal hobbyists.”
