We’ve run a successful game studio for over 10 years.

As one of Canada’s biggest indie mobile games studios, Hothead Games is recognized as one of BC’s Best Workplaces and one of Canada’s Top Technology Workplaces. We create our own concepts, we develop the games from scratch, and then we publish them. Our success comes from hiring the smartest and talented people so that they can do their magic!

Our goal is to continue to keep winning over loyal fans while building more platform-pushing technology and delivering on big entertainment for little screens everywhere! We rely heavily on data and analytics to help guide our work, making certain we are doing the best for our players and studio. We move fast, we do amazing work and we have a lot of fun working together.

Join us on our adventure to make the world’s most amazing mobile games!
