About us

Earthbound Games is an independent game development studio based in Dundee, Scotland.

Established in 2017, our mission is to create new and exceptional gameplay experiences that promote teamplay and healthy competition through experimentation and genre hybridisation.

Our People

We are in the early stages of growing our studio, so joining us now is a great opportunity to learn and grow as we do.

We believe that creative talent can come from anywhere. Whether you’re straight out of University, working on AAA, Indie or you’ve just been making a tonne of games in your spare time, we look at the person, not just the number of years in the industry. 

We’re also conscious of ensuring we are an equal opportunity employer. We believe people create better work when they have a range of perspectives to draw from, and are committed to creating an inclusive working environment that celebrates diversity.

Our Office

We are based in Dundee, Scotland, but we now work remotely with or without lockdown and welcome fully remote team members from all over the UK. We also recognise the importance of working together in-person, so we believe it will still be important to find time to meet and work face to face when circumstances allow.
