ABOUT US


Mountaintop is a new game studio creating multiplayer games for players who crave a challenge. We’re an independent, remote-first studio primarily located in the US and Canada.


We’re creating the types of games that bring people together — and keep them together for “just one more round.” The types of games that inspired us as kids. The games that become our hobbies, and sometimes our obsessions.


Games are a reflection of the teams that make them. So to make the best games, we’re building a studio that puts the team first — one that's collaborative, anti-crunch, diverse, and inclusive.


We’d love for you to join us.

  • Develop custom tools and systems to streamline UI creation, editing, and implementation processes, empowering designers and artists to iterate efficiently
