About the event

As part of the London Games Festival, Payload Studios and the Tentacle Zone are hosting an official 'Open Studios' event at our co-working space in Central London on Weds 5 April.

Please join us if you’re interested in finding out more about life in the Tentacle Zone Community, meeting our residents and other industry folks, being part of a games tournament and joining us for lunch! We have Payloaders, Spilt Milk Studios, Strelka Games and Stormed Inc who are just some of our residents joining on the day.

About Payload and Tentacle Zone In 2016, Payload Studios, creators of community-centric sandbox game TerraTech, founded the Tentacle Zone Expo Stand to help showcase as many great teams and games as possible. Seven years later, the Tentacle Zone has evolved into a thriving games focused co-working space in Central London with fantastic resident studios and celebrating two years of running a virtual incubator for global game developers from underrepresented groups.

We are so proud to support other independent developers however we are able to and excited to open our doors to the wider games industry to get a sense of what it’s like being part of the Tentacle Zone Community!
