​Who are we?

Ghost Ship Games is a Danish game development studio, founded in the spring of 2016 by a group of veteran game developers. In less than three years, we turned Ghost Ship Games into a solid and profitable game studio able to compete with other mid-size game studios on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

We believe our relatively small team size of 21 souls makes us work smart instead of hard. Our main focus is on gameplay and fun and our ambition is to develop games with us as the target audience. If we as gamers like it - so will others!

​At Ghost Ship Games, we foster openness through regular discussions of ideas. We wish to hear people’s input and discuss options and alternatives. This includes collaborating with the game community,  and we strive for open development. It correlates with our ways of communication: we have daily stand up meetings before lunch, and we also offer monthly 1-to-1 meetings with your lead to ensure there is ample opportunity for you to discuss your work and other important matters.

Our motto is simple: Co-op First. We will take Co-op to the next level, and make great games, focused on the core gamer.

​For the big studios, co-op is a bullet point. For us, it is the whole point.
