Starting a new studio and building something from the ground up is an incredibly exciting opportunity, but we also have a responsibility to do something different, or even better. We think that the greatest opportunity we have that is meaningful is how we work with our values and culture.
There are some things we care about deeply; that we believe will help us craft the best game experiences possible whilst also building a company where people can become the best versions of themselves. We want to make sure that our beliefs drive our decision-making and that we hold ourselves accountable for the course we have set and the kind of studio we want to be.
What we care about
A human-sized studio with larger than life ambitions
We aim to create engaging, high-quality experiences while still remaining “human-sized”, and to do so we’re building a studio where everyone is welcome and where you will personally know all your colleagues. Each individual will be empowered to have real impact on the project, and not just feel like a mere cog in an impersonal machine.
We believe that the creative process requires openness and generosity in order to create the best game possible while also having fun building it together. To foster this generosity, we believe everyone should be able to give and receive input no matter what their craft or experience is.
Laser-focus on the game experience
Our purpose is to craft groundbreaking, unique moments of gameplay that will live forever in the hearts and minds of our players. We want to enable our developers to fashion those experiences uninterrupted and to the utmost extent of their vision and expertise - we will use existing tools and technology whenever possible and develop from scratch only when it will bring the most value for our creators and players.
The impact of our values
These values come from our collective experience in the industry over the past two decades. We know that people excel when given the chance, and that making a company where people feel welcome and empowered to speak up is the single most important factor. We will have plenty of examples of the impact this can have as we get up and running, and we are incredibly excited to invite you to create these memories with us!!
As the studio is built, we want to share some ways our values have already shaped important decisions about what kind of studio and workplace Moon Rover is going to be (spoilers below!). Sharing and being accountable for decisions around how Moon Rover is built will not only make us better, but will hopefully also guide you towards understanding if this is something you want to be part of too. We already know that this is going to be an amazing adventure and we hope that our transparency about how Moon Rover is built will make you feel the same kind of excitement we do.
If you already feel convinced that this is a journey you want to be part of then continue scrolling and you will find the jobs we already have open. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
Moon Rover Games is a game development studio located in Stockholm, Sweden. Our founding team has spent decades working on blockbuster franchises such as Battlefield, Far Cry, Star Wars Battlefront, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Mirror’s Edge, and more, and eventually decided to strike out on their own to explore new worlds and new ways to create them.
Our first game is an ambitious cooperative action game set in a new IP and designed to generate unique emergent gameplay stories that players can truly make their own.
