    Who We Are

    Playdead Vilnius is a small branch of Playdead, focused on building new technology and tools and supporting the team in Copenhagen. Our approach to development does not include crunching towards arbitrary deadlines - instead, we particularly look for people who enjoy managing their own schedule and thrive on working within a friendly and collaborative environment.

    We love to make carefully crafted games with obsessive attention to detail and are always on the lookout for others who share that passion.
