About Splash Damage

Based in London, Splash Damage are a video game developer that create deep and engaging multiplayer video games where teams of players work together to achieve a common goal.

The company is best known for developing the popular Enemy Territory franchise for id Software, including the world’s first free-to-play shooter Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and its PC sequel, the UK and US number one hit Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars.

The people who make up Splash Damage's talented team hail from over a dozen different countries, including Canada and Australia, as well as cities across the UK.

Since the company was founded 16 years ago by three friends that played and made games together, the values of friendship and loyalty have been cornerstones at Splash Damage. Autonomy, self-reliance and a healthy work/life balance are all important to the company.

The video game developer was founded in 2001 by Chief Executive Officer Paul Wedgwood.
