A little bit about the city: Toronto   

As the largest city in Canada, and growing, Toronto prides itself on diversity, with a wide range of cultures, foods and art available. Named by Forbes as one of the ‘World’s Most Economically Powerful Cities’, Toronto is certainly somewhere worth settling in. Alongside the economic benefits, Toronto’s transport system is strong thanks to their public buses and streetcars, which use hybrid-electrics, therefore creating minimal environmental damage.   

The city also boasts numerous art galleries, museums, operas, orchestras and much more, as well as being home to several sports teams. Generally regarded as a very safe city, and with several prestigious schools situated there, Toronto is an especially great option for people with families considering relocating.

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!
