Sponsored by Auroch Digital Ltd for April, May & June!

If you haven't heard of us already, we're a game development studio founded in 2010 and based in Bristol, UK. Since September 2021, we have been part of the Sumo Group and we work on a range of different projects, working with the likes of Games Workshop and others, as well as original IP.

We are due to be releasing our beer-brewing simulation game, Brewmaster, later this year, and we are also working on some really exciting, top secret, games that are yet to be announced. Check out our jobs page to see a video about what it's like working for us, or listen first hand to some of our colleagues in our podcast about 'A Day in the Life'. Our jobs page also gives info on our long list of benefits! If you are interested in being a part of our fun and friendly team making some amazing new games, then take a look at the link above!


The next anti social event will take place on Thursday 26th May at 7:30pm. Join us at the Bristol Games Hub co-working space ‘Co-op Mode’ for an evening dedicated to answering the big question: “How do I break into the games industry?” - sponsored by NextGen Futures. Expect a great chance for some networking, as well as talks from a panel of industry professionals. For more info, go to the event page.


As a reminder, as of April 1st, the hub deskspace moved downstairs into the second floor 77 Stokes Croft, Bristol and has evolved into a new venture, CO-OP MODE! CO-OP MODE, like its sister organisation Bristol Games Hub, is also a not-for-profit company and was created to support games and interactive media as a place to work, collaborate and enjoy an event.

The Bristol Games Hub has helped support the start-up of this new company to deliver deskspace services into the future. All Bristol Games Hub events will take place in this space.
