Third Kind Games is a growing, independent game developer based in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, the heart of the UK games industry.
The founders have extensive experience in the development of acclaimed titles such as the DJ Hero series, Guitar Hero Live, and DiRT.
Third Kind was founded in 2016 in response to an industry that needed a fresh, agile approach to game development. In fact, our founders built their careers at studios with Activision, Codemasters, Sony, Crytek, and more.
Third Kind focuses on emerging technologies and greenfield projects, supported by a dynamic and creative team who are able to explore new ground in this ever-changing landscape.
We are always expanding and we are looking for others to join us.
WHO ARE WE?
In 2016, nine industry veterans came together with a combined knowledge of how to create award-winning games and more importantly, how to have fun while doing it. With the perfect combination of experience and talent across all verticals in AAA game development and publisher expertise, Third Kind was born.
We are a privately owned company and have seen exceptional growth since our founding. Our ambitions are to expand our skillful team and we are always on the lookout for Third Kinders to help us develop awesome games.
Third Kind is based in the heart of Leamington Spa. Staying true to Leamington’s rich history, our office has a historical facade retaining all the original character features, whilst offering a melting pot of the latest games development technologies and tools inside.
As a growing studio, our facilities provide a future proof space that allows us to deliver world-leading video games and facilitate company growth. We have also recently converted an additional open plan space into a second large development area which we have BIG plans for in the future.
