Spiral Circus is an independent games developer based in Bristol and London. The company was founded in 2018 by Tom Mead and Dom Clarke. The goal of the studio is to bring surreal art to life in games and interactive media.
After starting preproduction on thier first game ‘Silt’, they were invited to attend the prestigious Swedish games accelerator program ‘Stugan’. At Stugan the team was mentored by several prominent games industry veterans and over 8 weeks they experimented with several prototypes of the game until they had overcome the challenges involved in bringing hand-drawn pen & ink artwork to life in a game world.
After Stugan, two new members joined the Silt team: Antonenko Anton (animation) and Nick Dymond (Audio). These four people form the core Spiral Circus Games team. They continue to work on Silt while also prototyping a roster of future games and seeking investment and publisher funding for their projects.
