Working at Snowcastle Games
Our team currently counts 30 people who work closely together on games we are passionate about. We are a mix of seasoned industry veterans and talented juniors. Most of us work from our Oslo office, while some work remotely from Sweden, England, Scotland, Germany, Slovenia, and the Philippines.
Our flexible work hours combined with generous Norwegian social benefits offer a healthy and family friendly work-life balance.

About Earthlock 2
The Earthlock series is set on the planet of Umbra, which has stopped spinning on its axis, meaning half of the world is completely shrouded in darkness, while the other half is constantly baked in sunlight. Along the border in the middle, there is an area that gets the best of both worlds. The game’s story centres around a group of friends who must set out to find and rescue their missing family members.
Earthlock 2 will be an open-world action RPG with complex interlocking systems that work together to offer players extensive freedom to customise their own experience.
