Safe In Our World Charity Recap

We’re going to start off todays update with a MASSIVE thank you to each and every one of you that took part in our fundraising stream last week.
As part of our continued support of the Safe In Our World #SaferTogether campaign we ran a 10 hour marathon live show playing games with the community, eating the WORST food, sharing interviews and…getting pied.

Through our combined efforts and your generosity we managed to raise over £900 for Safe In Our World which is absolutely amazing!

The funds raised have unlocked a PLETHORA of content from us that you will be enjoying in the near future, from Cosplay streams, competitions, dancing streams, weekly challenges to US and gorgeous works of Microsoft paint art – so look forward to those!

The mission doesn’t stop there however, we will be continuing to raise money and champion Safe In Our World for the rest of mental health awareness month, where a £10 donation will also enter you into a draw to win an Xbox Series S and a bundle of incredible games, so keep an eye out on all of our Wired Live videos and streams for how YOU can get involved in making a world where everyone can belong!

You can catch the live stream below if you missed it on the night!




Wired Turns 13

There was another reason to celebrate at the end of the week, as Wired officially turned 13 on Saturday!

That’s 13 years of unforgettable indie gaming memories created with the worlds most passionate developers and the fans who make up our wired family. Here’s to many more!

We celebrated in the way that we know best, with donuts, video games, and giving away bundles of game codes over the weekend, if you managed to grab one then congratulations, if not – then don’t worry we currently still have a competition going where you can win a Nintendo Switch for simply giving our competition Tweet a retweet!

The Switch competition will be ending today and I’ll be announcing a winner in the morning so click here for the tweet link and get your entry in if you haven’t already! 

Tiny Troopers Update


During Wired Direct we announced the sequel to one of our most loved franchises. Tiny Troopers Global Ops is launching later this year, and promises to bring the same massive twin stick action that fans adored on a bigger scale than ever! The teaser trailer left a lot of questions though (that is the point of a teaser after all!) but we are now starting to share some behind the scenes Work in Progress asssets and developer updates on the Steam page as well as in the dedicated area we have carved for each of our shiny new games in our Discord!

If you haven’t already, go get Global Ops added to your Wishlist to stay up to date with development, and join our Discord to start getting to know your squad mates! Leave nobody behind by visiting the latest news and click here!
