Since then, Aardman have been working on a brand new gaming IP for a multi-national publisher, filled with all the character, humour, love and craft you would expect from an Aardman film. Based in Bristol in the South West, Aardman work from a custom built HQ building with an on-site 40 seat cinema amongst other perks, as well as another base which houses the stop motion feature production. Founded in 1976, Aardman has become one of the UK’s biggest names in storytelling, and sees games and interactive as the future of telling really exciting, interesting, and characterful stories for years to come.
