Silen Booths

We’re happy to welcome Silent Booths in to our office! With a growing team, it’s essential to have spaces where everyone can find peace and quiet. Now we can have meetings with a big group or sit in a small pod by ourselves, while the rest of us can enjoy silence and, therefore, focus on our work!


Full Cycle Game Academy students at Gamecan

We are super proud that a lot of our Full Cycle Game Academy graduates got welcomed to Gamecan! Now, they will be able to use their skills and passion for game development and create amazing experiences in the gaming world. Gamecan is always looking for talented people who love making games, We are excited for their new journeys in Gamecan!

Treasure hunt

While all of us usually work hard to make wonderful games for the rest of the world, we also like to have fun in the office. In June, we had an exciting treasure hunt in the office. Our People Operations Manager, Lisenn, hid amazing coasters around the office. Even days later, we hadn’t managed to find all of them yet!

Clever Cities

Clever Cities is building a 10-minute walkable City District & Ecosystem in Pärnu. Twenty-eight architects from seven countries arrived in Pärnu to generate ideas and designs for Clever Cities. Some of our team members were delighted to be part of the support team for the 3-day workshop. They were excited about all the amazing ideas the architects came up with! Check out more about the Clever Cities project here.

Welcoming party

Whenever some of us relocate to Estonia, we like to have a get-together to make their relocation easier. In June, we welcomed a huge group of people; therefore, it was the right time for an Ultimate Welcoming Party!
We celebrated the night all together with lots of snacks, drinks, and laughs.

Midsummer Gathering

Estonia’s Midsummer Day is the longest public holiday and one of the most important summer holidays in Estonia. There are many Midsummer traditions, including barbecuing, lighting bonfires, and even jumping over the bonfires. While we did not jump over fires, we certainly enjoyed a good evening together barbecuing!

Closed Beta of Contenders: Arena

After months and months of hard work, the beta version of Contenders: Arena was released for a closed group of people!  We are extremely proud of our team and the work they have put into the game, and they will continue to do so.
