The Genepool studio was housed on the top floor of the beautiful BRUNTWOOD HALL, in Cheadle, Cheshire. There’s a cottage attached to it and is situated in Bruntwood Park. It really was an amazing place, although it did get a little warm in the summer.
We spent some time looking at places, but this was the one we all wanted. Our main philosophy with setting up Genepool, was to recruit great people, have a unique studio and work on a game we all wanted to do. Luckily, we got all three things.
The tower you can see, was also past of our studio. Sometimes we’d climb it with a cup of tea (or coffee) and take in the great views up there.
A portion of the team we started with, were also members of the old Star Trek: Invasion team we had at Warthog.
Although the team scattered to the four winds once Genepool closed, some of us still stay in contact.
