November 20th 2013 – Stratford Upon Avon & Bristol,  England.

On November the 20 th 2013, Bristol and Stratford-upon-Avon based development house Engine Room Games (ERG) are pleased to announce that have been in business now for exactly five years. During this short period of time the industry has seen some huge shifts in development trends, and now with a proliferation of platforms to develop for, ERG are looking to raise their current business profile. Engine Room Games have been quietly growing organically behind the scenes since 2008, whilst developing and nurturing strong commercial ties with some of the industry’s leading players.

Engine Room Games was originally set up in November 2008 by Alex McLean, Tim Cannell and Paul Dunning, with their original offices being situated in Westbury-On-Trym, Bristol. ERG’s founder members have a wealth of history and experience within the computer and video games industry, with the three directors themselves having over 75 man years of hands on experience in video games development. Their knowledge of gaming hardware and platforms covers as far back as 8-bit and 16-bit technology, right up to today’s console, PC and mobile entertainment vehicles. The company opened a new office near Stratford-upon-Avon in June 2013.

Alex McLean goes on to explain

“We’re very pleased to be both celebrating our fifth anniversary and also to have recently opened a second office in Warwickshire. 2013 has seen us enter into a long-term relationship with Unity Technologies where we’re assisting in the ongoing development of Unity for console platforms. We will also very much looking forward to adding new team members to both sites to assist us with this work. Here’s to the next five years!”

About Engine Room Games

Engine Room Games (ERG) were founded in 2008 and develop technology and video games for console, PC and mobile platforms.

Our founders have been in the industry since the early days and are as excited about the present and imminent new generation platforms as they were back in the 8-bit and 16-bit days. Since starting ERG we've worked on some fantastic AAA games including Batman : Arkham Asylum for Rocksteady and the F1 series for Codemasters.

2013 is our 5th birthday and will see ERG stepping up a gear. We've recently opened a second office and we're working on our biggest challenge yet. We have recently partnered up with Unity Technologies to develop Unity for console platforms. We are presently working on PSVita, PS3 and PS4 and look forward to this longstanding relationship with Unity being a core part of ERG’s business for the coming years.
