About us

Alterego Games is a game design studio, founded with one goal: to devote itself to the making of games that really get you. In our view, a good game is characterized by freedom of choice, while not lacking in direction. A good game has a strong ambiance but leaves room for your own creativity. The choice of the gamer must be made central and be able to influence the course of the game. We want to challenge gamers and amaze them with well thought-out games.

We bring the same enthusiasm when it comes to working with companies or others that wish for a custom-made game. These assignments provide wonderful challenges in which we have the chance to combine the wishes and goals of our clients with our creativity and abilities. Contact us to learn more about the games we could make for you.
