Windup Games

Building a heartwarming open world adventure, played in 3D, in third person.

More to come soon!

Windup Games is a video game development studio based in Umeå, in northern Sweden. We create games and jobs that inspire playfulness, give comfort, and allow people to thrive.

We’re building a multiplayer 3D adventure game, with the intent to provide millions of people with something both joyful and meaningful. We’d like your help to make it awesome!


The team is a mix of old and new - some of us have decades in the industry, others are just starting. We’re building a diverse and excellent group. We’ve got experience, energy, lots of love for the craft, and on top of that - very solid financial backing. The studio has a strong foundation, and with your help we’ll be even stronger.

Our Goal

Our goal is simple: Maximize feel-good! To achieve this, we start by building a fantastic work environment, where we increase autonomy to empower creativity. Next, we make games in that spirit - playful, creative, and positive games for a broad audience. Then we use our gains to do it all over again, but even nicer - for us and our players.

Join Us

We invite you to come as you are. Differences expand our perspective, and complement the team. We learn from each other and grow together. Building games is difficult, and we all depend on each other to succeed. At Windup Games, respect, trust, approachability, and accountability is essential.
