The name 'Alectika' was inspired out of some transformations of the words 'Electric' and 'Eclectic', meaning broad and diverse, encompassing what the directors what to achieve with their creative output.
Alectika Audio Limited's founding co-directors met for the first time upon commencing university study in September 2015. As this came to an end they decided to open a company specialising in audio, creating work for themselves in the collaborative production of audio library content. The company was successfully incorporated in July 2019, and the first productions published in August 2019 on the Unity Asset Store.
In October 2019, Alectika Audio Limited became the official audio composition and production partner to British start-up game developer X Vision Interactive LTD.
“On behalf of X Vision Interactive, we are super excited to start this professional relationship alongside a fellow start-up business in Alectika Audio, and hope for us both to thrive in each other’s presence”
Kurt R. Graham - COO of X Vision Interactive
