Old Skull Games

We're Old Skull Games, a video game studio based in Lyon, and we're on a mission to create awesome adventures for players on consoles, PC, and mobile platforms.
We work both on original licenses and in partnership with renowned publishers, and our mission is to craft awesome experiences.

With a decade of experience and over 10 games released under our belt, and a crew of seasoned pirates, we've already accomplished some pretty impressive feats. We've made waves in the industry with hit titles in the Apple Arcade Top 5, including Spongebob Patty Pursuit and Nickelodeon Extreme Tennis. We even have a first console game experience, Cooking Star Restaurant.

As our studio has grown (we're now over 70 strong ! ), we've set our sights even higher. We're currently working on some ambitious action / adventure games for PC and console, and we're teaming up with some prestigious partners in the industry to make it happen.

During this move upmarket, new Senior profiles have been added to our team and have helped us to deliver products that are up to our aspirations !

But we're not just about creating amazing games, we're about fostering an environment where our team can thrive. We believe in giving our team members the creative freedom they need to shine and a trust-based management approach that allows them to do their best work. And it's working ! Our games not only meet the expectations of a constantly evolving market, but they're also something our team is incredibly proud of.
