Description

Mostly Harmless Games is a small game development studio hidden in the mist shrouded mountains of western Sweden.

History

The birth of Mostly Harmless Games

Mostly Harmless Games started out as a group of students randomly paired for a game project course at the University of Skövde in april 2015. The goal was to create a prototype for a local multiplayer party game with forklifts in under ten weeks. We named our team of developers after Douglas Adams masterpiece "Mostly Harmless". Our little family of artists, programmers, designers, writers, musicians and audio engineers set about to create what would become a far more ambitious project.

Forming a company

After the course was completed and the prototype finished, the majority of the team decided to take the project with the working title "Gaffeltruck" to a summer course, the joint initiative between the University and Microsoft Game Camp, where the entire summer developing a completely revamped iteration of the game. The game was eventually named "Funklift". After Microsoft Game Camp, most of the team split up and our family shrunk. Five of us remained. We decided to join a ten-week education in business development and entrepreneurship, finalized by a pitch before Gothia Science Park who would later offer us a spot in their incubator. To this day, we enjoy our lives from the safety of our office cave.
