Playtra is an independent game studio based in London. Our mission is to create games that define a generation. We believe games have the power to change everything. Great games have been inspiring people since the dawn of humanity, and we will still be playing games when we’re all living inside asteroids, in the depths of space. Grid Force is our high-speed twist on grid-based combat where you need the reaction speed of a fighting game and the tactics of a real time strategy game.
