Absolutely Games is a new UK game studio based in Guildford.
Do we love games? Absolutely.
Are we growing? Absolutely.
Do we have big plans? Absolutely.
A mix of veterans and up-and-coming talent, our core values come from our experience working in both the biggest and smallest studios, on titles ranging from AAA blockbusters to indie hits.
Absolutely Games are currently working on an exciting new IP, providing a fresh take on a popular genre, while also exploring partnerships and great new game concepts.
Founded by James Brooksby after selling Edge Case Games to Wargaming, and by Adrian Hawkins formerly of Twistplay and Kuju, Absolutely Games have been working in secret since October 2019 on a new project that is currently getting a great reception behind closed doors. As of October 2020 the team numbers 8 people and is expected to grow from there in early 2021, as they work towards the release of their debut premium strategy game.
In a company announcement, founder James Brooksby recently said:
"Absolutely Games. The studio, located in Guildford, was born with the goal of making great games with a 'no BS, no politics' focus-on-the-game mentality, where passion, excellence and good people drive the joy of the creative and development process. The initial funding round for the company was led by Chris Kingsley OBE of Rebellion and joined by Cedric Littardi of Anime Virtual."
“Being back running a new studio with a great and growing future ahead is extremely exciting. We have already made excellent progress with our first game and the new team is really working well together. It has been somewhat of a challenge setting up a new venture due to recent global events, however each challenge has been surmountable and the team and partners have been great in solving each problem.
The culture and values of the new studio are very important to me - we will be making smart choices and excellent games, however there must be a focus on those games and their players, no nonsense around the edges. It will be a studio that is staffed by good, honourable, reliable people who love what they do - all building a real family spirit. As well as our first game, we are already talking with partners about some pretty cool parallel projects, which will help us grow to become another Guildford success story.”
