TPLD is a video game developer that designs and develops applications and platforms in the field of Serious Games, specifically Game Based Learning. The company is based in Dundee, Scotland, and was founded by Matt Seeney and Laz Allen in 2002 who were then students of The University of Abertay Dundee. The name stands for 'Team Play Learning Dynamics' although this is rarely used, in favour of TPLD.

In 2004 TPLD recruited Jim Piggot, from NCR Corporation who was at that point the Vice President for Software and Services, based in NCR's Discovery Centre in Dundee, to become the company's CEO.

TPLD has developed two main products, Eduteams covering core skills in schools, and Infiniteams covering soft skills in medium and large organisations. A newly released single-player, web-based sales training game, developed in conjunction with DSC, The Land of GY$T (Get Your $ales Together), was released in May 2006 to address complex sales training in a game-based format.

In April 2007 it was revealed that TPLD was working with the Scottish Institute for Sport Foundation and Yehuda Shinar on a game to create winners and help people learn to think "correctly" under pressure.
