Welcome to Electric Square

We are a game development studio founded by industry veterans Jon Gibson and Tony Beckwith.

We’re focused on staff welfare and on being an enjoyable place to work… it’s important for us to pick the right projects to work on.
Jon Gibson – Studio Head, Electric Square

Based in Brighton, Electric Square sparked into life as sister studio to the renowned Studio Gobo, which won a ‘Best places to work in the UK games industry’ 2017 award. In 2018 Electric Square was proud to join the Keywords Studios group.

Confident and focused

We’re a fearless and wildly creative studio, as well as being professional and reliable.

It’s inspiring to work on different things so we can develop varied expertise within the studio. It’s also more interesting for our people not to be locked into the same sort of projects for the duration of their career.
