About

Darewise Entertainment is a new genre of game company.

Obsessed with product design and product management, we are creating AAA quality games that are much more accessible and less demanding; games that don’t require a huge learning curve, time investment, and long game sessions, without sacrificing the high-end quality.

How about combining the ease-of-fun of Farmville with the production value of Assassin’s Creed?

Based in Paris and led by the creative vision of Viktor Antonov (Valve, Bethesda) and Benjamin Charbit (Ubisoft), we combine international experience and disruptive creativity.

We focus on building next generation social adventures, taking place in large scale virtual worlds, where players write their own stories and take fate into their own hands. We create the impossible.

If you dream of pushing the boundaries of online games, then join our international team!
