Lab42 Games are a highly versatile studio based in Leamington Spa, UK, with experience across a huge mix of genres and platforms. We first opened our doors in January of 2015, and after enjoying five years of success, were thrilled to become a part of the Sumo Digital family in 2020. 

Experienced with original IP, licensed titles and established franchises, our focus is to always deliver quality to our players and on being a trusted, reliable co-developer to our partners.
