Nimble Giant Entertainment (formerly known as NGD Studios) is a game development company located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They started as a three group fusion and were the creators of an acclaimed game for a construction kit toy called Mis Ladrillos, which is similar to Lego toys.

They later created a mobile gaming division, making games for known brands like Axe and doing development for the multinational GlobalFun. After some successful games, GlobalFun acquired the mobile division from NGD Studios.[1]

They are currently continuing development of a real-time, 3D massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) which emphasizes flexible gameplay and dynamic content. The game is called Champions of Regnum and it has been in development for more than five years before its release in the first quarter of 2007. The game was intended for the Spanish-speaking market at the beginning but then improved enough to be targeted for other zones as well, more recently the game has struggled to maintain a critical population and has scaled back some of its international servers.

The game currently officially supports English, Spanish, German, French and Dutch but they have stated plans to open the translation tools so volunteers can incorporate other languages.

The game uses a proprietary engine called NG3D which was built from scratch with massive multiplayer games in mind. It supports a variety of features found in today's engines, such as hardware shaders support, continuous world loading, asynchronous resource management and a flexible gameplay system.

Champions of Regnum was officially released on May 24, 2007. Any information about future expansions and features have been not disclosed yet. With the update of the NG3D engine, Nimble Giant Entertainment made graphic updates on Champions of Regnum . In 2011, they released a game called Bunch of Heroes, made with the new NG3D 2.0. In this year, they also helped developing a game called Maldark: Conqueror of Worlds for Cartoon Network.

Since 2018 The company is working on the First Person Shooter game Quantum League.

They are still supporting their developed projects: Master of Orion and Drone Strike Force, as well as publishing the game Hellbound.

In 2019 the company was rebranded as Nimble Giant Entertainment with the hiring of former Rockstar Games executive Jeronimo Barrera as its vice president of product development.[3]
