Pineleaf Studio was founded in 2016 and is a game development company based in Trondheim, Norway. Pineleaf Studio’s chief motivation has always been to have employees that are 100% invested in the games they are making, while also being experts in their field. This has resulted in a plethora of unique skillsets and personalities roaming the offices. As of today, the Pineleaf team includes 17 people, all highly motivated to make the best games they possibly can.
It all started in 2014, when Co-Founder Anders Ottensen participated in the Norwegian Game Awards kickoff. With him, he had a napkin with a crudely drawn concept, and he was looking for people who wanted to develop this concept alongside him.
After a night of networking, he had the names of seven interested people. One week later they had their first meeting, which formed the start of the game-project DwarfHeim. Six out of the original seven people are still working in Pineleaf AS today.
