Malmö’s home to over 70 studios and game developer communities. That’s 4.8 more game studios per capita than in London, or so says Business Insider. The southern gem, which is just a 20 minute train ride from Copenhagen, can boast of about 100 graduates per year from the world’s top game developer schools – The Game Assembly. Nordic Game Conference, one of Europe’s most influential conferences, is also hosted in Malmö.
A few big names that might ring a bell with you; Massive – Ubisoft, Tarsier Studios, King, IO Interactive, Paradox and Sharkmob; all have offices in Malmö – and most of them are actively recruiting and looking for collaborations, too.
Oh and also; we take it you’ve heard of Ubisoft’s Open World Star Wars game? Well, that’s a Malmö baby too.
Malmö isn’t just an amazing gaming hub. It’s also renowned for its life-work balance, laid back life style, international vibe and awesome (and often free) coffee.
Enough said. So what’s the deal?
