Bossa Studios moves into physical products

Expansion for games developer and publisher begins with a strategic relationship with PowerStation Studios.

London-based independent games developer and publisher, Bossa Studios is making the move into physical products, starting with a strategic relationship with PowerStation Studios.

The new tie-up follows on from the success of the Surgeon Simulator franchise.

From its viral internet meme roots in 2013 through to the recent launch of ​Surgeon Simulator 2 on the Epic Games platform, the series is a global cult hit known for its physics-based pandemonium and a complete disregard for medial accuracy.

“The rise in consumer product success within video and mobile gaming has been something we have been tracking for some time and we are excited to begin the journey with Bossa IP,” commented Marina Mello, chief commercial officer at Bossa. “With our new title, ​I Am Fish​, we will continue to expand the Barnardshire universe, England’s quirkiest fictional county, home to Bob and a certain infamous piece of Bread.”

Dave Collins, co-founder of PowerStation Studios, added: “Bossa’s unique and rich characters and art will offer cross category and market opportunities.

“The PowerStation team have been having a lot of fun immersing ourselves in the game and creating trend-led designs which will resonate with fans and at retail.”

Bossa has now launched an initial line of apparel which can be purchased from​ with more lines coming later this year.
