Third Kind Games, or TKG as we call it, is a growing, independent game developer based in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, the heart of the UK games industry.


The founders of TKG have extensive experience in the development of critically acclaimed titles such as Guitar Hero Live  and DiRT . TKG  was founded in 2016 in response to an industry which needed a fresh, agile approach to games development. In fact, our Founders built their careers at studios with Activision, Codemasters, Sony, Crytek and more.


TKG 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. 


Our latest title in development is Blankos Block Party (https://www.blankos.com), a collectables game using blockchain technology, where the player can build their own worlds, create their own MMO gameplay, and blend their Blankos to create totally unique new characters.


We are always expanding and we are looking for others to join us as Third Kinders. 




Third Kinders are a diverse team of people. They are collaborative, high performers who embrace ideas and knowledge from everyone in the TKG family,  with the aim of developing and inspiring ourselves and our games. 


Work life balance and flexibility are very important to us and our team. We also actively encourage our teams to explore their creativity outside of work on their own projects.
