The Next Chapter Introversion Moves Office

Multiwinia: Massacre de Pixels

Image

We would like to inform you, the IV community, that we have officially moved offices from an Edwardian house in south east London to the Techno park, south London. Have a look at some of the photographs below of the new IV set up. The actual building is a unique 90’s design of a pentagon shape. The move involved a team effort, over an early Saturday morning at sunrise. We even hired a Van and posed as builders with the use of a copy of a newspaper ‘The Sun’ sat behind the front window.

Image

The new offices have transformed Introversion Software ‘the last of the bedroom programmers’ into a professional studio outfit. We stand strong as an indie games company and are moving forward with the times.

Image


The future of IV must be on every ones minds with this current economic climate. Have no fear, just like our games we adapt to our surroundings for survival. We currently have a few projects on the go, so you will have to just wait to find out what Introversion’s next chapter holds…

So is this moving into one little office in the building, or one big fricken' huge office that's now yours?

It's like you can read my mind! :shock: I was just about to ask this question during the Xfire session:

It's not that long ago that Introversion's employee count hit the 2nd digit for the first time. When I was in the Flying Hamster the day of the Multiwinia Launch Party I wondered how you could fit that many people in there, let alone any more future hires. Are you planning on expanding anytime soon, and if so, are you going to move your headquarters?


Looks like a cool place, that's for sure, but the Flying Hamster really had that indie ambiance. ;)

I sure hope there's at least one bed in that office, otherwise it doesn't count as a bedroom!

Ah well, science parks are pretty awesome none the less. And now I have an address! I'll be seeing you... :wink:

It IS an evil building, the technopark is a part of my university! It's the bit you have to go into when the time comes to paying the fees...


Although I can confirm that it's not a proper pentagon like the, er, Pentagon in Washington, but more fills a gap between a couple of roads at odd angles. [conspiracy theorists can bugger off now]

So, is this the Flying Pentagon? Or the Flying Hamster II? Or something else entirely?
