A great saga needs all sorts of heroes

Making games is fun! Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace!  We encourage teams to try, test, fail, start again and learn from their experience.

We design games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are. So, we welcome people from all kinds of backgrounds to be part of the creation and development process. The truth is, we simply can’t expect diversity in our players and originality in our games without first supporting diversity and innovation in our people. A great saga needs all sorts of heroes.  And that’s it.

We’re Seriously Playful

We believe that great gaming experiences happen when they are developed by working in small, autonomous creative teams that control the whole process – from idea to amazing products. Our close connection with the player community gets us instant feedback and enables us to deliver truly magical moments. We value your free time and your need to refuel, relax and find inspiration. At King, you can do it by playing games with your colleagues, enjoying free snacks and breakfast, being at home with your family or going to the gym. That’s how we help ourselves to stay creative!
