ABOUT

  
Ocean Spark Studios was set up by a team of four students as part of our placement year with the aim of making a mark within the video game industry by creating an ambitious and unique game. Each member brings their own distinct knowledge and background to the company, thus allowing us to develop the powerful team we have created.
  

OUR CURRENT PROJECT

  
We’re currently working on our first title; Tetra, Elemental Awakening. It's a third person RPG / defence game which involves the player taking control of four unique characters each with their own background and story to tell. The game is a mix of genres which incorporates the fast paced tactical game play style of modern wave defence games, whilst also encompassing the atmosphere of an RPG.
