Life at Improbable

Our vision

Improbable believes in a future where new virtual worlds will augment human experience and become as meaningful, lasting and rich as the physical world. We call this seismic shift in human experience the Multiversal Self.

Building new worlds is not about escapism - it’s about fulfilment through new experiences, vocations, economies and societies. Games will play a critical part in this, connecting people to incredible moments and new communities.

Our values

We're deeply proud of our values, which are intrinsic to the way we behave every day. We take them seriously because we want our culture to thrive.

Relentless humility

Relentless humility

We don't rely on personal status, reward, elevation and success, especially where we have the authority to make decisions. We always assume good intent, give the benefit of the doubt and always do what's most important for the cause. We are prepared to give up our role for someone we believe is better than us - we become irreplaceable by replacing ourselves. We're active listeners, vocal about mistakes, stay grounded and believe that we can fail.

Improvement over comfort

Improvement over comfort

We are never satisfied with ourselves and convinced it's okay not to know, but it's not okay not to learn. We're proactive and pragmatic but balance that with resilience and having the courage to dig deeply through problems. We solicit feedback, are curious and constantly seek to learn and understand perspectives. We're building and contributing to a culture of "what's it going to take".

Aim for the impossible

Aim for the impossible

We must aim for the impossible in order to find out what is possible. We do not artificially restrict ourselves and do what others are afraid to do; without asking if we can do it, but how we will do it. We are driven to achieve extraordinary things and expect to get there.

Action over fear

Action over fear

We learn by doing and delivering real-world results. We avoid unnecessary debate and balance building consensus and driving decisions with trying new things and focussing on delivery. We are not paralysed by the fear of making or reversing decisions.
