About Megapop

Megapop is a laboratory of fun where we fuse the experience of gaming industry veterans with up and coming talent. We are currently 14 employees based out of our offices in downtown Oslo, and we hope to continue our growth. In addition, a range of outstanding freelancers cooperate with us.

We create outstanding games with global appeal. Our last game was a top 10 strategy game in more than 130 countries, and was featured by Apple seven times. We have mostly focused on mobile strategy games (Trolls vs Vikings 1 and 2), and want to keep on pursuing ‘core gameplay games’ in the future. We are also in the early stages of establishing a casual ‘small’ games department for ‘lighter’ games.

As an indie studio all employees in the company are an instrumental part in shaping our future. Working in Megapop you will work alongside a team of truly experienced developers and freelancers, who all focus on creating the most engaging games and products we possibly can, both for ourselves and for a broad assortment of clients. While being busy, we focus on a solid work/ life balance, supporting each other in building a culture of knowledge, respect and fun.

In addition to making our own games, we develop a broad range of projects together with clients. We develop apps, VR experiences, digitalization and ‘gamification’ projects, as well as delivering artistic work.

We are growing into a unique company in Norway, and we see how well our experiences from games transform into other industries. Working with us thus means that you will get experiences and challenges spanning industries and technologies, but with games at the heart.
