HandyGames™ is a THQ Nordic Company and part of the Embracer Group Family. We operate as an international indie game and premium mobile game publisher and developer for a global community of gamers.

Games are our passion. Since our founding at the turn of the millennium, we have been steadily evolving our company and portfolio to publish and produce award-winning titles for cutting-edge consoles, PC, and VR, as well as premium mobile games from great teams around the world.

We are proud of our ever-growing and colorful portfolio - from hilarious games for the whole family to deep and sometimes dark topics presented in an interactive format. Games are and always will be entertainment media, but we firmly believe they are capable of much more.

HandyGames is at home in beautiful Giebelstadt in Northern Bavaria, close to the Franconian university and city of Würzburg and a proud part of the German and European gaming scene. Always on track towards lasting growth, we have significantly expanded our office space to create room for up to 120 colleagues and look forward to continuing to successfully shape the future of the international games industry as a sustainable employer.

As a team, we stand united against any form of discrimination. Regardless of sexual, cultural, or ethnic identity, we try to ensure that everyone feels welcome at HandyGames. It is very important to us to help new colleagues who move to our beautiful Franconian home to find like-minded interest groups, even outside their work environment.
No matter who you are, you're part of the family and we got your back.
