About Blazing Griffin

Blazing Griffin is a digital entertainment company driving innovation at the dynamic intersection between film, games & post production. We are a BAFTA award-winning studio, best known for the murderous multiplayer franchise ‘The Ship’, and it’s spiritual successor ‘Murderous Pursuits’.

One Big Diverse Family

A family of talented, creative, fun and passionate people, with the expertise needed to bring out consistently high quality work across all our departments.  We work hard and laugh quite a bit too.  Our leadership team is BAME-, female- and LGBTQ+ led and we’re proud of it. We aim to not only include people with a diverse array of voices, but to promote and inspire them too, especially those traditionally under-represented in the creative industries.

Growing a Wee Bit at a Time

We’re a 45-strong team of Griffins (and counting) here at our state-of-the-art facilities in Scotland which offers an excellent working environment for all our teams. Headquartered in the sunny city of Glasgow, we love a good get-together on the roof-top when the weather allows.

About Our Games

The Ship: Remastered is a remake of the 2006 classic, The Ship: Murder Party. Explore all of the original maps that have been recreated for The Ship: Remasted and then remember how The Ship caused you to lose all of your friends in the first place!

Welcome to Murderous Pursuits, a multiplayer stealth-em-up of aristocratic proportions. In this delightful game, your host, Mr X, cordially invites you and up to seven other players to stab the living daylights out of each other.

Set on board a Victorian-era ship, that can fly – it’s ‘the time travel’, don’t you know – you get to play in one of several ship-board locations and must identify and kill another player amongst the passengers, without drawing too much attention to yourself or having the guards witnessing the diabolical deed. What gratification! But if this seems too refined for your gentile tastes, you must do so while evading your own murderous hunters. The swines!

Join the District Crime Agency in Murder Mystery Machine– an isometric, episodic deduction game. Explore crime scenes in complex dioramas, organize your evidence effectively, and blur the lines between right and wrong to present your case. Do you have what it takes to be a real detective?

Fresh-faced rookie, Cassandra Clarke, is teamed with a reluctant burnt-out detective, Nate Huston, to investigate the murder of a prominent politician. While all evidence points to a botched robbery, something more sinister is evolving in the corridors of power that send both detectives on a collision course that could end both their careers.
