The National University eSports League

As students we were frustrated with the lack of opportunities to express our interest in esports whilst at university, so back in 2010 we decided to change this. We wanted to provide everyone at university in the UK with the opportunity to:

  • Represent their university at esports
  • 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 Polygon Loft

We're one company made of many teams comprised of the very best people we can find. Our teams are called Pods and each Pod applies a six month to a year development cycle to their initial game idea.
Sometimes an idea doesn't work out, and that's OK; we celebrate failure just as much as we celebrate success, because each journey adds value to our company.

As the company grows, so do the number of Pods, the amount of ideas we can be exploring and the existing product lines we can consolidate further.

The Secret Police

We're always interested to meet like-minded people who might want to join our team so, if you're a talented game developer looking for a new challenge, please take a look at our Jobs section.

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.

You bring us your brief, your problems, your challenges – and of course – your lovely game – and we can take care of the rest.
