Train2Game blog readers who want to get a sneak peak at which British studios could be the future of the UK games industry should definitely look at this article by Industry Gamers.

Titled United Front, it looks at seven UK game development studios to keep an eye on. Some Train2Game students may have heard of, others may be completely new to them.

Perhaps the biggest name on the list is Splash Damage, the studio behind Brink. The Train2Game blog recently interviewed Splash Damage’s Ed Stern about Brink and writing for video games, read it in full here.

Social, digital and Flash developer Mediatonic are another name on the United Front list that has also been interviewed by the Train2Game blog.  Read our interview with Mediatonic Director of Games Paul Croft here on the Train2Game blog.

North East studio Eutechnyx are praised in the article, lead programmer Dave Hawes featured in one our Train2Game at Eurogamer video interviews.

Meanwhile, Train2Game student Darren Price has recently started a work placement at Double Eleven, which Industry Gamers notes was founded by former Rockstar North developers who have impressed Sony enough to be signed up as an exclusive PlayStation developer. They’re currently working on LittleBigPlanet for PlayStation Vita.

The three other studios featured in an article that paints a positive picture of the UK games industry are Mobile Pie, Fight My Monster and CCP Newcastle, with the latter developing Eve Online spin off DUST 514.
