Snowcastle Games is an independent game developer founded in 2009 and based in Oslo, Norway. We launched our first feature title Hogworld© in 2011, which made the Apple App Store Best of 2011 List. After five years in development, including a successful Kickstarter campaign, our highly anticipated RPG; Earthlock©, the first in the Earthlock Trilogy is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch. Earthlock has sold more than 2.5 million copies.

Snowcastle is currently working on Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure© and Earthlock 2.


Working at Snowcastle

Our team currently counts 40 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. Snowcastle had a well developed system in place for integrating remote workers long before Covid-19, and the transition to work from home for all employees proved the value of this. Every circumstance is different and Snowcastle will work with each candidate to find what works best for both parties.


Snowcastle offers a wide variety of benefits including:

  • Flexible job hours, and work from home options.
  • 37.5 hour work week and 5 week paid yearly vacation.
  • Pension Plan.
  • Stock Option Program for full time employees.
  • Central office location, 10 minutes walk from Oslo Central Station with a cafe/bar on the ground floor.
  • Social events such as “Game of the Month Club”, Quizzes, and Online Hangouts.
  • We take your professional development seriously and want to see you grow in both experience and responsibility.

  • You are a passionate team player who wants to grow and make an impact on our games.
  • We are serious about building a diverse team. All qualified applicants will be considered, regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, political affiliation, disability, or age.
