Hello,

This is the tentaclezone.

Created by Payload Studios, we are a game focused co-working space and virtual incubator in the centre of London.

We are huge fans of building a community of game developers and the Tentacle Zone has been just the most perfect realisation of that dream for us. From the talks and expertise they bring in on a regular basis, to how to’s with excel, unconscious bias workshops and everything in between, it’s helped us grow in a way we never could’ve on our own. We’ve even, actually, ended up with work as a direct result of it, so I can recommend it wholeheartedly.

Andrew Smith | CEO and Co-Founder, Spilt Milk Studios
