SENIOR PRODUCER

Third Kind Games, is a growing, independent game developer based in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, the heart of the UK games industry.


Third Kind was founded in 2016, by a group of industry veterans from many high profile companies such
as 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.


Our latest title in development is Blankos Block Party, 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.
