Welcome to digital future games

We are a new digital gaming company, dedicated to bringing you the very best in mobile gaming.

Digital Future Games is the brainchild of traditional game designer Steve Atkinson and multi-talented app developer Rudolph Liebenberg. Between us, we are looking to create modern digital games, created with an old-school ethos. Games that retain the powerful hook of traditional board games, while delivering exciting visuals and tactics to a whole new generation of gamers.

Plus, there’s no possibility of losing the pieces.

Our first gaming app – Mandala – is released in 2020 through the Google Play store for Android devices, and the AppStore for iOS platforms.

Mandala is a game with a storied history. Created in 1982 by the forerunner to Digital Future Games – the aptly named Future Games – it was a near-overnight success. This esoteric, award-winning game was a masterpiece of design, shifting over 115,000 units in its first run. Its unique style and innovative game mechanics kept players enthralled from the first game. Today, almost forty years later, there has never been anything quite like it.

Until now.

Check out the rest of the site to learn more about the game, its history, and its development. Coming summer 2020.

DFG Mandala



Since leaving home at 17 to travel the world – or trek across Europe, at least – I’ve never been one to sit still and stagnate. I’ve worked as an antique dealer, a photocopier salesman, and a life insurance salesman. I married the love of my life, with whom I raised two wonderful sons. I’ve founded four successful businesses – including Digital Future Games – and I’ve seen the world.

I also invented a board game called Mandala – you may have heard of it.
