About Frictional Games
Frictional Games is a small independent game developer, known for our horror themes and narrative experiences. We have developed the Penumbra Series, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and SOMA, and published Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.
We started out in 2007 as a virtual company, with employees scattered across Europe, and only namely located in Helsingborg. We have since expanded and set up an office in Malmö, housing about half our 25 employees, including interns. The other half is working from home, as are contractors who help us with specific tasks during production, such as audio, writing and graphics.
After the release of SOMA we became a two-project studio. The majority of the company works on Secret Project #1, currently in production. A smaller team is working on Secret Project #2, which is in pre-production. Once Secret Project #1 is released, Secret Project #2 will move into production, and Secret Project #3 will start pre-production.
The comment we hear most is “Wait, you’re the people who made those horror games? How are you so nice and friendly?”
Our Latest Game - Amnesia: Rebirth
Amnesia: Rebirth, a new descent into darkness from the creators of the iconic Amnesia series. A harrowing journey through desolation and despair, exploring the limits of human resilience.
