Based in the gaming hub that is Royal Leamington Spa
We have made our home in the spa town at the heart of Warwickshire. Instantly recognisable by its Georgian and Edwardian architecture and award-winning parks, Leamington has a lot to offer. Being a stone’s throw from Warwick and the hometown of Shakespeare not being much further, Leamington and its surroundings are steeped in history.
Leamington is also rich with gaming history, it has become a thriving hub for game developers which we are proud to be a part of. Being surrounded by the creativity and excitement of the games industry without the congestion of a big city gives Leamington a unique appeal to developers from around the world.
Our studio is in an idyllic location; surrounded by a park and only 5 minutes walk from The Parade; Leamington Spa's high street.

We have direct train links to both London and Birmingham and are just off the M40. If that isn’t enough, the Grand Union canal runs straight through Leamington, it is safe to say that we are a very well connected area.
