  • Meet likeminded people who share their passion for esports and have fantastic experience
  • Help gain useful experience and skills from within the esports industry

The Tall Trees

We're making games with heart in 'em. Games that tell stories in interesting ways, that make players think, and that remain in their heads when they've finished playing.

Narrative is very important to us, whether told through dialogue, or the environment, or left largely open to you. We want to create games that conjure the feeling of textures: warm sand betwen toes. Snow underneath boots. Grass and corn and wood and metal and wind.

The Tiniest Shark

The Tiniest Shark is an indie games development microstudio based in the UK. In fact, it's so very micro that it is currently a one-woman company. That one woman is Mitu Khandaker-Kokoris, whose ramblings you can read on her blog.

The Tiniest Shark was responsible for the development of Redshirt, a satirical sci-fi social networking simulation game, released in November 2013, and available on PC, Mac, and Linux, and published by Positech Games.

The company is currently in the preliminary stages of a new, unannounced game project.

The Trailer Farm

At TrailerFarm we make ultra brilliant games videos. From hype-generating teaser trailers, to unit-shifting TV spots and blockbuster launch trailers we love nothing more than getting stuck into briefs and making your games shine. And we do the lot. You bring us your brief, your problems, your challenges – and of course – your lovely game – and we can take care of the rest.
