Sunderland’s tech history
While Sunderland doesn’t have a particularly notorious tech history, it is certainly making up for it now.
In recent times it has become something of a game design magnet, prompting Pitbull MD Robert Troughton to dub Sunderland a “technological hub for the gaming industry”. And after the creation of Sunderland Software City, he might just be right.
Talking of Pitbull, you may know them as part of Epic Games and for being responsible for the Unreal 4 engine. But they’re just one of many companies making Sunderland their home.
While some of the other companies may not be household names, that’s no barrier to success when it comes to the internet. Sunderland based Ace Viral has been making successful online Flash games since 2004 and has now moved into the mobile market; while FOG (Freeonlinegames.com) has created more than 350 online Flash games and boasts millions of users.
