Local game developer celebrates new headquarters

Monday, February 27, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Local game developer Certain Affinity, which launched in Austin back in 2006, is moving into a 55,000-square-foot building at 7620 Guadalupe St. The new digs will reportedly include playtest labs, sound design suites and a virtual reality development lab – among many other amenities for the company’s 125 full-time employees. There will also be additional space for rent on the first floor once the work is completed this summer. Mayor Steve Adler noted that the project is the first to benefit from the state’s Media Production Facilities Development Program, an incentive dating back to 2009 that gives companies like Certain Affinity tax exceptions for construction or renovations costs. The developer hopes to improve on the $100 million in revenue it’s already made since opening shop a decade ago.
