Studio life

Founded in 2009, we are a group of seasoned, passionate and talented developers recognized for our unique creative vision and ability to fuse intense first-person gameplay with immersive narratives, all within beautifully detailed worlds.


Studio values

MachineGames is always aiming to create the best work environment possible where all employees can thrive and prosper.

  • Icon


    Everything we do at MachineGames comes from our love of telling exciting stories and our passion for engaging gameplay. We combine crisp, varied, first-person gameplay with climatic action and our distinctive storytelling to create unforgettable gameplay experiences. We want to put you at the centre of the worlds we create and live and breathe the characters in them.

  • Icon


    Whether it be a new concept or a reimagining of a classic, we never shy away from putting our unique approach to gameplay, immersion, and storytelling into a game. We create the games that we want to play and also try to deliver them in ways that are different from many of the other common gaming experiences we see today. We want to be brave, bold, and push boundaries.

  • Icon


    Creativity and passion for gaming can be found everywhere and here at MachineGames we do not shy away from that, because we want the best possible quality for our games and our fans. We want everyone to be able to shape their ideas and dreams into reality with as much support and encouragement as we can offer. We’re inclusive and welcoming to anyone that wants to be a part of the team and believe in supporting causes that our family here is passionate about. The one thing we all have in common is our love of games.
