KAAMOS [‘ka:mos] aka the polar night is a yearly time period when the sun never rises above the horizon.

MAKING QUALITY GAMES

UNDER THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

 

Kaamos Games is a creative game studio based in Oulu, the biggest city in Northern Finland – a place where the sun doesn’t set in summer or rise during the cold, long winter. Thus the Finnish word Kaamos – a word originally borrowed from the Sami language meaning the time period when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon – was selected as a fitting name for the company.

Founded by game industry visionaries and seasoned ICT veterans, Kaamos possesses the skills and determination to challenge the game industry globally – and have fun while doing it.
