About Overbyte

David Hewitt - Game Design Manager at Sony Santa Monica

“…Tony truly "gets" games, so he'll give you the result that makes the game better - not just the one that's technically elegant…”

Overbyte was formed by Tony Albrecht over ten years ago when he recognised the need for code optimization within the gaming industry.

This lead to Tony becoming a global expert on code optimization including developing training programs that have been delivered from China to New Zealand. Tony is a recognised expert in the gaming industry and is a regular speaker at gaming conferences.

In 2010 Overbyte became a part of the Saros group of companies which provided additional technical capabilities in the area of transmedia, application and data services. Overbyte has now expanded to provide services to the gaming, advertising, mining and construction industries.

Our services have now expanded to include:

  • Code optimization: audits, tools, development, training
  • Game and transmedia: development, porting, multimedia & education
  • Application & Data Services: data visualization, organisational and data security, 3D visualization

Overbyte can also provide custom consulting services based on client requirements and application support services.

  • Gaming
