About 
Greensky Games

Greensky Games was founded with one mission: bring VR into the mainstream by building games that couldn’t possibly exist on any other platform.

‍We believe the immersiveness and physicality of VR will fundamentally change what a ‘game’ is, bringing ‘gaming’ to a massive audience, far beyond what’s now considered the ‘gaming market’.  

‍Humans didn’t evolve to sit on the couch, with a craned neck, small controller in hand and stare nearly motionless at a glowing rectangle. VR frees us to use the full capability of our bodies, and has an unparalleled ability to engage all of our senses, just like ‘real life’. 

‍Ten years from now, the VR games played by hundreds of millions of people won’t be adapted from 2D, they’ll be designed specifically for VR and inherently social.

‍We’re building the kinds of VR experiences we believe will define the platform.

‍Greensky Games was founded in San Francisco by veteran VR developers and is funded by Y Combinator and other top tier VCs. The company's first game, SWARM was released in Spring 2021, and is currently the #5 highest rated app overall, and #1 rated action title on Quest.

 

Working With Us

  • Exceptional games. Creative Control. 
    We make great VR games - the games we want to play. As a successful independent studio we’re able to build new titles while maintaining complete creative control.

  • Fully remote. Fully committed. 
    Greensky is a remote-first studio based in Montreal. We’ve been intentionally building the best remote gaming company from the very start. We believe if the games you make are exceptional, you don’t need ‘crunch’.

    Do your best work from a place that’s productive for you, and stay connected with your team – that’s all that matters.

    We’re about work and life, balanced.

  • The Future of Gaming. 
    We believe the immersiveness and physicality of VR will fundamentally change what a ‘game’ is, bringing ‘gaming’ to a massive audience, far beyond what’s now considered the ‘gaming market’.

    We’re building on our track record of success to create the premiere VR studio, which will release platform defining experiences.

 

Our Values

  • Fostering a Growth Culture. Learning and development is a key part of working at Greensky and we make sure you receive mentorship to develop your skill set and push your career forward.

Featured Game
s

"SPIDER-MAN WITH GUNS — this is what VR was made for!"

SWARM is a fast-paced, arcade-style grapple shooter, with quick sessions, bright colorful worlds and globally competitive leaderboards that will take you back to the glory days of Arcade Games.

Armed with just a grappling hook and your handy pistols, you’ll be plunged into a flow state as you grapple, shoot and battle your way to the heart of the SWARM before it’s too late. Twitch reactions won’t be enough to carry you through, you’ll need to think strategically and plan your next move to stay alive.

Intense. Demanding. Exhilarating.
