About

Who we are

  • Our story 01

    Shapefarm as a company is built upon a unique breadth of expertise working on AAA projects across the world. We’ve been around since 2010, serving as an A-Team for game studios in need of better art, audio, better tech and unique narrative ideas.

    Being a Swedish company based in Tokyo, our studio philosophy draws from western development principles coupled with Japanese flair and creativity.

    We intend to leverage our years of collective expertise working on AAA titles across Guerrilla Games, Square Enix and Dice amongst others, to build our own games, and take our first step towards becoming a lead studio.

  • We are dedicated to 02

    Building unique and immersive worlds through expert craftsmanship, and to create challenging designs that pull the rug from out under your feet.

  • Our mission 03

    To leverage our unique multi cultural setting to build a truly creative game studio with industry leading talent, in one of the most vibrant cities in the world.
