Who We Are
Abstraction Games is an Independent Game Studio where we do our own games, as well as co-development work and adaptations of other games. We started 13 years ago as 2 people in a garden shed, and now have over 50 people in a newly renovated office just outside of Eindhoven, in the Netherlands. 

We encourage an open and collaborative atmosphere. We surround ourselves with incredibly talented people who naturally promote a culture of discovery and innovation. 

We are currently working on a new IP that we’re not quite ready to talk about here, but we are really excited about it! Additionally, we also do co-development work. As a small company, you’ll have a chance to work on many different projects. 

Some of our previous successes are Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, ARK: Survival Evolved, The King of Fighters XIV, Hotline Miami 1&2, Don’t Starve, The Sexy Brutale, Broforce, and many more!

Where We Are
Eindhoven is the tech center of The Netherlands and a thriving international city.  It is very modern, progressive, and diverse.
