What We Do

Nothing gives us more pride than creating video games. We can help bring your project to completion, or build a game 100% from scratch.

We can help build the software you need to stand out against competitors, convert browsers to buyers, or teach just about anything.

Let our designers and engineers bring your vision to reality - whether it's a massive networked experience or a humble tech demo.

Our Team

Founded in 2009 by a group of industry veterans, Snowed In Studios was created with one goal in mind: be a studio that put people first. Since then it's grown to a team of nearly 200 (and still growing!) working with a range of clients from AAA to indie.

Whether that's killing bugs, building tools, porting to next-gen systems, creating a whole game and art style from the ground up, or a brand new app for an obscure custom platform and experimental hardware. We're the ones for the job.

Even as Snowed In grows to work with some of the best studios and publishers out there, it stays loyal to its roots: People First. We’re always looking to extend benefits, help grow careers, and has Snowmies to work across a multitude of projects so there’s never a dull moment.
