Auroch Digital Update

Another busy month for Auroch Digital. We're still hard at work on Brewmaster and a bunch of other TOP SECRET projects. However we are mid-season of our latest podcast, the most recent episode taking a look at climate change & gaming. Auroch has also become a patron of Sunflower Ward at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. You can find out more about this here. If all this sounds like the kind of place you'd want to work at - we are still recruiting. We're keen to hear from UX/UI people, programmers, animators and more - more on our jobs page! 


We are open and have spaces at the hub, so if you want to rent a desk space, or know anyone who would, then contact for more information and spread the word to local games devs.
