About Coatsink

We’re a UK based Game Dev & Publisher

So, about the name…

Our co-founders have always had wild imaginations. In their formative years they created an elaborate narrative that one of their teachers – Mr. Coates – was an invincible demi-god who secretly controlled the planet from his evil organization Coats Incorporated [Coats Inc].

It started as a joke… Now it’s a company with almost seventy employees.

Tom Beardsmore

CEO & Co-Founder

A few words from our Co-Founders

Coatsink formed in 2009 and has grown into a diverse and versatile development studio. We’ve created platformer and puzzle games for console and PC, plus a plethora of games for Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Go.

Originally co-founded in 2009, Coatsink incorporated in 2011 and has built its reputation on exciting and innovative titles and a wicked sense of humor.

For our growing staff, we strive to create a relaxed and collaborative studio culture, free to express new ideas and develop their professional and creative skills. And of course cover their desks in figurines, play table tennis and wander around in socks.

Our recent accolades include the critically acclaimed VR game Augmented Empire,  the Oculus Go launch title They Suspect Nothing, and the online multiplayer solution for Boneloaf’s massively popular Gang Beasts.

We’re looking forward to the future as we strengthen our foundations through indie publishing and technology, whilst continuing to meet and exceed the expectations of our trusted partners.
