Wish has established itself as a studio built on creativity and quality that really values the contributions of its team.
Playground Games in Leamington Spa earned one of the highest scores across all studios, with a generous offering of perks and benefits for all employees. As well as keeping its own internal checks to improve staff happiness, one of Playground's most notable perks is an uncapped royalty scheme on the games produced by the studio.
For a studio producing hits like the recent Forza Horizon 3, this means staff can directly share in the success of their work and even double their salary.
