About Reactor

Reactor is sometimes Rector, aRector or even Ivan’s Dogs with an accent.

To be really reductive and slightly clumsy here, we ring up our mates and say let's get together on Saturday night and have some ‘fun’. No one has any fun, and the next day we get together with another bunch of mates and have some ‘right fun’ about the fact no one had any fun.

You wait a year for a Reactor project and then three come along at once - we're exhibiting in Polymorph Other in Hexham, performing as part of A Friends Rendezvous in London and talking about video game development at RAM_Fest in Derby. We're also gearing up for the digital release of the Ivan Poe video game, coming soon ... “we need to avoid feature creep!"
