Where it all began

Our Roots

Iron Gate is a small game development studio from Sweden, founded in 2018 by industry veterans Richard Svensson and Henrik Törnqvist, who have previously worked on titles such as Magicka 2 and the Titan Quest series.

Our first title, the viking adventure game Valheim, was launched into Early Access in February 2021. Since then it has sold over 12 million copies worldwide, and we’re currently continuing to develop it towards a full release.

Where we are

Located in Sweden

Our office is based in Skövde, at the heart of the Swedish province of Västergötland. The team consists of 14 people, who work both remotely and from the office. From our headquarters we don’t have to go far in order to reach those mysterious Nordic forests that so inspired the world of Valheim.
