We're Facepunch Studios
We make games
We are a game developer based out of Walsall in the UK, but our team are from all over the place.
We have accepted that everything we do is an educated guess. Things just happen. We don't have long term plans, design documents, financial forecasts.
We don't have tiers of management. Need advice? Help? Just ask. But we don't give you a list of tasks to complete.
Typically we pay out over 50% of the profits of our games on bonuses. As far as we're aware, that's unique in the entire games industry.
