A little bit about the city: Vancouver   

On the West Coast of Canada, it has been frequently rated as one of the world’s most liveable cities and the best city to live in North America. Situated beside the ocean and against the mountains, Vancouver is certainly a scenic place to explore. Sitting within British Columbia, which is notoriously a beautiful region of Canada, there are so many ways to explore Vancouver, from enjoying the beach to hiking or skiing in the mountains, there’s something for everyone to enjoy whilst taking in the scenery. Public transport in Vancouver is notoriously excellent, so getting around is easy. The best way to traverse the city is on their extensive system of buses, the SkyTrain and SeaBus, all of which are easily paid for via a preloaded card that you can tap into for each journey you make.

Ryan Templeman

Principal Game Development Consultant & Game Development Team Lead

Ryan leads our dev team, focusing on scouting out the best programmers in the industry! We think he’s working here mostly to get his hands on new Lord of the Rings VR experiences as soon as they come out although, with his level of knowledge, maybe he should be helping make them instead! He is one of the few people on the team that is a born and bred Brightonian. In fact, he has never moved far - to the point where the last time he moved, it was only 2 doors down from his old place!
