A COMPUTER game developer in Portsmouth is expanding.

Climax Studios, which is behind virtual titles such as EyePet & Friends, Rocket Knight and Bloodforge, has signed up a third office at the city’s Gunwharf Quays.

The lease details were handled by Fareham commercial solicitors Graeme Quar & Co.

Climax, which is nearly 25 years old, is currently working on announced games with Sony XDev, Sony Studios London and Microsoft Studios and on an unannounced game with a high-profile publisher.

Simon Gardner, Climax’s chief executive, said: ‘The online game community in the UK is thriving, with more and more participants downloading products and extras rather than buying in-store, and our developments reflect that trend.’

The new office is at 2 Boyd, The Admirals, while the other offices are in the North Promenade Building.
