About Us

We’re an award-winning independent studio based in Farringdon, Central London. We share our offices with other independent developers as part of the co-working space we offer (the Tentacle Zone). Our office also has an event space and we run regular events for the Payload team as well as the wider games community. 

At the moment, due to COVID-19, we are working remotely but will be returning to the office once it is safe to do so (the safety of our Payloaders is our number one priority). Once we have returned to the office there will be the option to work from home on a part-time basis.

The studio offers a range of benefits for all our employees:

  • For cycling fans our Cycle to Work Scheme enables employees to save money and spread the cost of a new bike.
  • To support our team’s wellbeing we offer an Eyecare scheme, Employee Assistance Programme (which includes mental health support) and trained Mental Health First Aiders.
  • We offer a generous family policy including 8 weeks fully paid paternity leave and 6 months fully paid maternity leave.
  • Great central London office location near to several excellent food markets and lots of great pubs and restaurants. The office also comes equipped with free fruit and refreshments, an arcade machine and table football.
  • We love to socialise and celebrate together and hold regular staff socials (always with non-alcoholic options available) including our well-known Summer and Christmas parties. We also encourage staff to take part in lunchtime clubs such as Magic the Gathering, Book Club or Table Football.
  • Since working remotely in addition to staff socials, we’ve been hosting a regular mini quiz and coffee break clubs to help staff stay connected and social.
  • We are, and always will be, a no crunch studio
