Allegations of ‘toxic culture’ at acclaimed indie studio Fullbright

Steve Gaynor, co-founder of Fullbright, is no longer creative lead or manager on its current project, Open Roads, though he remains involved as a writer. A report published by Polygon claims that Gaynor was a “controlling” and “demeaning presence” who saw himself as embodying the studio, and who ultimately drove away multiple employees—especially women.

Fullbright is the indie studio behind Tacoma and Gone Home, which won the Best Debut category at the GDC Awards and the BAFTAs. Originally a small team, Fulbright has grown since teaming up with publisher Annapurna Interactive for Open Roads, but has allegedly lost multiple women employees due to Gaynor’s micromanagement of them.
