2021 was a big year for Auroch Digital!

To say 2021 was a busy year for us is quite the understatement! We've written a summary of the year of our work, and when you see it all written out - phew! That is also not including a couple of secret projects we can't yet say anything about!! Also, we just started a new season of our Podcast, starting with a look at what it is like to work at Auroch during a pandemic.


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.
HELLO THERE! Do you have any exciting development news you'd like us to put in next month's newsletter? Get in touch - contact details down at the bottom...
