Speaking at the Develop conference, the Life's Too Short actor said that games are a good way to "spread your creativity".
"As an artist and producer you want to find other ways to spread your creativity. A game seemed a good way to do that," explained Warwick.
"It's no less rewarding than getting up on stage and doing a Shakespeare play," he concluded.
Davis was there to talk about his upcoming video game Pocket Warwick, which has been described as "Tamagotchi meets The Sims on acid", according to Develop Online.
Little else is known about the iPhone and Android game, other than the fact that it is being developed by Matmi.
Warwick Davis made his debut in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, before appearing in films such as Willow, The Leprechaun and Harry Potter.
He will appear with Karl Pilkington in The Short Way Round, a two-part Idiot Abroad spinoff due to air on Sky1 in December.
Davis recently criticised the casting of the dwarf characters in Snow White and the Huntsman.
