Formed in 2017 and based in Leamington Spa in the UK, Unit 2 Games was founded and is run by former Radiant Worlds and Blitz Games Studios Chief Operating Officer Richard Smithies. The studio was acquired by Facebook in June 2021 and continues to operate independently, developing collaborative and accessible game creation and sharing platform Crayta. Smithies is supported by a highly experienced senior leadership team, many of whom have worked together for over 15 years on a variety of server-based, UGC-led projects.


Unit 2 Games was founded in November 2017 by a team of 18 veterans who had previously worked together on SkySaga at Radiant Worlds. They now have a team of 40+ working in an office just outside the centre of Leamington Spa.
