Why Us ?

There has never been a better time to join the video games industry. It is now worth over £36bn globally per year - which is a bigger industry than both the movie and music business.

With the arrival of digital distribution, games now have a global opportunity via mobile, PC, tables and desktops. Five years ago it would taken a huge marketing budget and a team of 200 to bring a game to PlayStation or Xbox, but now it is also possible for a small team or even one programmer to launch a game and for it to become popular all over the world....
