Netherlands | HKU University of the Arts Utrecht

I realised that I wanted to work in the Games Industry very early on. At the age of 15 I saw Game Art as a job in a book and from that moment I knew that I wanted to head in that direction.

Category Brief

Ninja Theory was formed in 2004 by four partners, including current Directors Nina Kristensen (Chief Development Director), Tameem Antoniades (Chief Creative Director) and Jez San OBE (Non-Executive Director). Our philosophy is simple: to create impactful game experiences made by small, passionate teams with breakthrough technology. Based in the historic City of Cambridge, with its sandstone colleges and punts pushing down-river, it is in these surroundings that we’ve produced all of our critically acclaimed titles, from the multi-BAFTA winning Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice to DmC: Devil May Cry and Bleeding Edge. Today, as part of Xbox Game Studios, we strive to achieve our mission to craft life changing art with game changing tech across our in-development projects of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, Project MARA and The Insight Project.
