Space Budgie is an independent games studio. With a focus on games that do more than solely entertain, our titles teach concepts and educate, tackling unexplored and difficult topics through the medium of games.


Starting Out

Space Budgie started out as 6 University graduates in the spring of 2013. Our aim was to develop titles that do more than solely entertain, by tackling unexplored and difficult topics through play.

Early Days

Whilst figuring out what our flagship game should be, we took 9.03m, a final year student project by former co-founder Karl Inglott, as our first title and spent the summer of 2013 polishing the game up for a full release. Designed to raise awareness of the 2011 Japanese tsunami, 9.03m went on to raise over £10,000 for charity.


Glitchspace was also at an initial prototype stage at this point. 2014 seen the game showcased at GDC’s Experimental Gameplay Workshop, acting as its “official,” debut to the industry. Afterwards, the game was then released on Steam Early Access.


After 3 years of development, 2016 seen the finished release of Glitchspace.
