The company continues to grow at an outstanding pace, with 100m players worldwide, we’re looking forward to 2017 and continue to support the potential of our people. We have planned significant investment with £4m initially earmarked for year one into the new office, to get setup and bring in top talent. We’ll be transporting our unique culture to the new office, with the extension of prototype Friday as well as other industry initiatives, we’re delighted to keep culture development at the core of our mission.”

Britain is open for business, and this move by Gram Games is a clear vote of confidence in this already flourishing sector.
