It's free to attend for developers (for both TIGA members and non-members) and you can register here.
Huge thanks to our sponsors, Autodesk, for supporting the next four events taking place in London, Leeds, Liverpool and Dundee.
About Hutch @hutchgames
Hutch was founded as a digital game studio in June 2011 by five passionate developers who worked on top selling franchises including Fable, Burnout, EyeToy, Battalion Wars, This is Football, Eight Days and the Getaway.
After a series of projects that never quite made it the team were compelled to take the leap and invest their own money into projects they believed in. With creative control and truly agile working environment the team focused on delivering Smash Cops for iOS.
Smash Cops was published by Hutch in January 2012. It became a No.1 App store hit in twelve countries, achieved Apple "game of the week” and has since amassed over 4.5m players.
The team is now growing in order to support the original title, expand the Smash Cops brand and explore new, ground-breaking concepts for 2013.
The Hutch goals are:
- Be an amazing and passionate place to work
- Create eye-catching, ultra high quality 3D visuals
- Blend rich, fun gameplay with effective and responsible monetisation
- Remain at the forefront of the digital industry
We are currently based in a hutch (quite literally) in Old Street, London and we’ve never been happier
