King in London

Our London studio is the home of our hit game Farm Heroes Saga. It’s based in Soho, the cultural heart of London’s West End with vast array of classic record shops and leading film companies, media offices and great restaurants. Regent’s Park is close enough for a lunchtime run, as are the delights of Piccadilly Circus and the shopping mecca of Oxford Street. And it’s no urban myth; there really is a pub on every corner.
