Novaquark, the Metaverse Company, is dedicated to bringing people from across the globe together to breathe life into worlds of their own making. We don't just dream about the metaverse, we build it. One voxel at a time.

WE ARE THE VOXEL EXPERTS. Our unique voxel expertise and technology are incredibly innovative, appealing to a wide audience and suitable for an array of projects.

Our first game, Dual Universe, grandly showcases the power of voxels. An ambitious, continuous single-shard sandbox MMORPG taking place in a vast, untamed galaxy, Dual Universe focuses on emergent gameplay with a player-driven in-game economy, politics, trade, and warfare. Players are empowered to let their wildest imaginings soar to create stunning buildings and contraptions, fully-functioning vehicles of every shape and size, and awe-inspiring pieces of art without the need to be a professional designer. And we're just getting started !

Novaquark has offices in Paris and Montreal, both in central, easily accessible locations, and the coffee pot never sleeps in either of them. We're always on the lookout for passionate and creative co-workers who want to team up with us to build something ground-breaking, preferably in voxels. We're far more interested in what you can do than where you are. Want to work from home in your favorite fuzzy slippers ? No problem. Our workflows are set up to ensure that remote work is as efficient as it would be in our offices.

Oh, and did we mention that we like to have fun while we're at it ? We're making games, after all ! Novaquarkians often meet up, in-person and online, to share food, games, and good times.
