The Studio

The team found each other through the university in Trondheim and the startup community there. Alex and Christer, our founders, both studied together to become industrial designers, where they both made concepts that aimed at promoting cooperative and social gaming. So 2 became 4, and we now have a team of highly motivated and different individuals who all love what they do. Our vision is to become the greatest Nordic game development studio for social local coop games!

Our Story

After winning three awards at Norwegian Game Awards (2017 His Story – Concept of the Year, 2018 Bonkies – Best Design and Gamer’s Choice) our founders decided to go for their dream: to develop awesome games. The beginning of Studio Gauntlet (Previously Gauntlet Games) is therefore their masters thesis, where they developed several concepts, including our current project: Bonkies! Realising a business requires more than amazing game design concepts, they found their business developer Lise, and the amazing sound designer Philip (find him on Spotify: Dahlstrom).
