Three Knots is a games studio founded on a shared appreciation of interactivity, discovery and beauty. We believe in working with people from diverse fields to push the boundaries of what games can achieve and aim to tell stories that look at the way we and our world are changing today.

Three Knots was founded by Sam Browne and Josh Unsworth, who met at the National Film and Television School studying for their Masters in Games Design. The pair quickly realised that their strengths in developing games complemented each other. They were known around the school for working all the odd jobs together, from the student bar to cleaning the coffee machine, and have been working together ever since.

They recently created their shiny new games studio in Brixton, London and are currently working on its first project, which is yet to be announced.

Josh Unsworth

Josh started with modding – exploring, editing and adding to the structures behind the game worlds that he had previously spent so much time playing through. This led to a desire to develop both the art and craft of making games. Now, after completing an MA, working as the production intern on Alien: Isolation at The Creative Assembly and working freelance, he has co-founded Three Knots.

Josh is an ongoing member of BAFTA Games Crew. He cares about quiet spaces, the line between real/imaginary, and history and its representation in games. He enjoys creating small personal games and learning new skills.
