A Great Saga Needs Diverse Heroes
Making games is fun.

Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. We craft games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all kinds of people from all types of backgrounds to bring them to life. We believe we simply can't expect diversity in our players and new ideas in our games without first nurturing it in our people. A great saga needs all sort of heroes. That's why we provide equal opportunities and hire all sorts of talent.
