A Little Bit About Us

Tarsier Studios has unfinished business! After making our name with City of Metronome, and earning our stripes with Rag Doll Kung Fu, LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway, we want to show what we can do with our own original games, and we’re looking for someone special to help us achieve our goals.

You would be joining us at the beginning of a new era. Making the transition to full independence is an exciting process and one that couldn't have started better. Little Nightmares is progressing wonderfully, the puzzling Statik Institute of Retention continues to win fans, and our other top secret games will soon not be so top secret!

There is really no better time to join us here at Tarsier Studios. Are you up for it? Get in touch!
