Blazing Griffin

Blazing Griffin is an independent game studio, based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Founded in 2010, the company is a creative mix of established game developers, experts from other industries, and a wide variety of freelance talent (from film to musical composition).

Born Ready Games

We are Born Ready; a heady mix of experience, ambition, talent and passion. Our aim is to look at the breadth of games across all formats with the intention of finding the one game we feel is missing the most. And then make it. That process is an exciting blur of code, pixels and doughnuts (fast becoming a sugary mascot for the studio), making work almost as fun as play.

Brightrock Games

Brightrock Games is an independent videogame studio based in Brighton, UK, with a core team of eight people from around the world. Our goal is to create genre-twisting simulation games in which players can experience their own stories. And if we can do it with a quirkily British sense of humour, then all the better!

Community is a huge part of what we do, and we pride ourselves on maintaining utmost transparency with our players. We’re like glass. No, water. Air?
