Who We Are

Gardens is a new remote games studio from developers of games like JourneyWhat Remains of Edith FinchBlaseballSpider-ManDustforceSkyrimAshen, and more. We’re named after the games we grow together — lush, living worlds that bring players together to cultivate lasting friendships. Worlds that offer surprising multiplayer experiences and flourish with the help of their communities.

We believe a team of diverse voices has the most to say, and we are committed to providing a healthy, inclusive, collaborative, and transparent work environment for all!

We offer competitive pay, stock options, unlimited PTO, 35 hour work weeks, and robust benefits (including full medical and vision, dental, 401k contributions and more)!

We are currently creating our flagship project — a shared 3D fantasy adventure inspired by our favorite memories playing online games over the years.

It’s the world we want to play in every day!
