As CTO I am responsible for maintaining the technical vision of our products, but day to day I find myself anywhere from programming in the architecture team to being tea boy. I studied Computer Science at Cambridge and when I'm not reading up on the latest news in distributed systems I'm bolting around country lanes on my road bike!

Rob Watkins

Art Director

During the day I am responsible for heading up the art at the company, and getting to make cool looking stuff with a bunch of super talented folks. I come from a background in Architecture and then mostly Games. And when I'm not at work making cool looking stuff with my friends and colleagues, then I tend to do the same at home by continuing to try and hone my art skills by designing and illustrating a series of spaces and places that I hope to publish one day.

Calum Watt

Concept Artist

An average day may see me concepting characters, costumes, props and weapons, I might storyboard a cinematic sequence or an in game level design. Essentially: problem solve and explore ideas via a drawing or a render. Following graduation in Film studies I decided to pursue my first passion and was lucky enough to became a comic artist. After a few years drawing Judge Dredd I was lured into the world of game development. When not drawing for games I draw for myself; one day I hope to improve!.
