about arctic game lab
Arctic Game Lab is an organization with the objective to create and nurture a strategic platform for the game industry in northern Sweden.
Sweden is a nation steeped in games. We have a great games industry that, year after year, delivers high quality games to the global market. Sweden has one of the oldest games industries in the world, going all the way back to the 1980s pioneer company Target Games (and long before that, Sweden was a market leader in traditional board and family games).
Sweden may be one of the world’s top 10 countries for games and game tech development but this is only true when talking about the southern part of Sweden. In the north, the games industry has been underdeveloped for many years, with the exception of Umeå where the industry gained a foothold in the early 2000s.
Therefore the focus of the Arctic Game Lab is to support, and be a part of the creation, of a stable gaming industry platform in the north of Sweden.
