Gram Games officially launches London studio with opening night party

Mobile developer Gram Games has officially opened its London studio.

The 1010! And Six! developer held a party for local industry professionals to come and network to celebrate the new office’s opening.

As well as hosting a party, Gram Games developer Murat Gurel hosted a talk on the company’s prototyping process and discussed why everyone at the company works on new ideas every Friday.

Culture of trust

“The people involved in the prototyping process is basically everyone,” he said. “From finance to HR, everyone joins in. We have a similar setup in the Istanbul office.

“People just make presentations, showcase their games and we decide whether it’s feasible to go into a fake launch.”

He added: “Everybody is included, because we’re all gamers here and we trust one another and we trust each other’s’ decisions."

The talk was similar to one Gurel made during Pocket Gamer Connects London 2017, which you can watch here.

Gram Games previously announced plans to invest around £4 million ($5 million) during the next year as it expands its new London HQ to create more than 30 jobs.
