History

About us

HandyGames™ was founded in 2000 by brothers Markus and Christopher Kassulke and is now one of the oldest and largest German games companies. In 2004, the HandyGames headquarters was moved to i_Park in Giebelstadt, near Würzburg. Already in 2015, we were awarded the German Developer Award as “Best Studio.” Since then, countless German and international awards have followed us and our games:
Several awards at the DEP and DCP, prestigious awards from Apple, educational media awards, gamescom awards, the Golden Sparrow (Der goldene Spatz), and many more.
Since 2018 we have been a proud part of the THQ Nordic and Embracer Group family and successfully work as a publisher with developer studios worldwide.

We have become the first THQ Nordic subsidiary in the group’s history to acquire its first studio. Since May 2021, the Cologne-based developer studio Massive Miniteam has been part of HandyGames.

As a team, we stand united against any form of discrimination. Regardless of sexual, cultural, or ethnic identity, we try to ensure everyone feels welcome and at home. Since our inception, we have developed and published countless games on every platform and device imaginable. We will continue to maintain a healthy growth course in the future, as we have some exciting projects in the pipeline and want to further strengthen Germany as a game location.

Work hard – game hard!

Games are our passion, and as avid gamers, we believe it doesn’t make a difference where you play what – but that you play. Therefore, there is no natural preference for just one platform. We produce and publish award-winning titles for cutting-edge consoles, PCs, VR, and premium mobile games from great teams worldwide. Can you play on it? We make games for it!
