Chris Wright

Chris Wright is the Founder and Managing Director of indie label Surprise Attack Games, games marketing and PR agency, Double Jump Communications and a new exciting thing that is being announced during MIGW.

After 10 years working in the AAA games industry including senior marketing roles at THQ, Chris found himself out of a job in 2011 when THQ closed Bluetongue and THQ Studio Aus. Rather than get another job in AAA, Chris decided to go indie and set out to build his own publisher from scratch. Honestly, how hard could it be, right?

Six years on and Surprise Attack Games is a successful boutique indie label with an international reputation and a focus on unusual and weird games, particularly those that push the boundaries of narrative in games. 

Along the way Chris consulted with over 150 indies including work on Armello, Framed, Hackycat, Time Surfer and Puzzle Retreat and built Australia's leading games-specialist PR and marketing agency (Double Jump Communications) with clients including Hi-Rez Studios, Razer, Wizards of the Coast, ASUS, Devolver and Blizzard.
