Synty is Turning 10!

It’s been a decade since a little company called Synty first introduced itself to the world. Founded by two friends, Andrew and Mike, who created their very first Synty asset pack for game devs called ‘Simple Town’, in just one weekend. Their recognisable style quickly gained in popularity, and Synty Studios was officially born!

Over the past 10 years, we’re proud to have grown to 37 employees across 4 countries, forging an expansive library of award winning, high-quality, handcrafted assets which are used in a vast array of projects including game development, film, television, metaverse, education, and more. The Synty collection now encompasses two art styles – Simple and POLYGON – across a variety of genres from Fantasy to Sci-Fi, supported by a growing library of HUD and animation products making Synty a one-stop shop for game developers.

To celebrate this milestone birthday, we are hosting an image jam, special community giveaways, a big birthday sale, and more – and you’re invited!

So, what’s happening? 

We’re so glad you asked! Here’s how you can celebrate this special milestone with us:
