Hey Nah I moved a couple years ago to Cambridgeshire to work for a Games Dev Life changing opportunity so had to take it Not a regret since moving, must be said.

Grimsby is nice enough, but if you wanna succeed in most modern careers you have to look a bit further afield, it's full of people who just seem to want to drag the place down these days
