Description

Ground Shatter is a contradiction, treading the line between abject cynicism and unfettered positivity; free-spirited iconoclasm and searing professionalism; with one foot in the seaside arcades of the past and the other in the cutting edge technology of the now.

History

The Company

The brainchild of founder and sole director James Parker, Ground Shatter is the culmination of fifteen years of games industry experience across console, handheld, and mobile development. Ground Shatter is the opportunity to build a games development studio in his own image.

James Parker

James has worked in the games industry for over fifteen years. He has been made redundant (and in one exciting turn of events, fired) from the pantheon of great British games developers, and has released over twenty games... most notably the PC port of movie tie-in uber-flop, Catwoman. Most recently James was co-founder of boutique, Bristol-based Opposable Games (Salvaged, Embarrassing Bodies), and served as design director for two years - if anything the company thrives in his absence.
