Working at Easy Trigger Games

Easy Trigger Games, based in Trollhättan, Sweden is a new indie studio on the move. We are developing the already notorious arcade shooter Huntdown for PC, Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo. Huntdown is the debut for the studio and the game is already super hot in the world of gaming.

In the future, Easy Trigger’s goal is to continuously produce high-end games that we want to play ourselves. At the same time, we want to keep the studio small but forceful, a solid team with excellent competence in each area of profession. Easy Trigger currently consists of 3 people working full-time with Huntdown thus external partners who work part-time. Our close partner and publisher is Coffee Stain Studios, which helps us with distribution, marketing, contact with platforms, consulting and financing.

About Trollhättan

Trollhättan is a medium-sized city that is constantly growing with a rich university life, new innovative companies and expanding residential areas. Imagine your progress of approx. 2 hours gameplay in Simcity 3.

Trollhättan is small enough for folk’s to have a pleasing dialect, but big enough to hold many restaurants, bars and clubs with interesting artists/bands, cafes, cinemas and shops with everything you can think of. As well as a travel center with good connections, eg; 30 minutes train to Gothenburg and its own city airport with 45 minutes to Stockholm.

Easy Trigger Games is located in the heart of Innovatum, a growing development center for a Space incubator, research projects arena and a cluster of startups and creative companies in areas of gaming, tech, music, film studios and design bureaus. It never gets boring here.

A Good Start

February 23, 2017

Lot’s of things have happened since you last heard from us. Great things! First of all, we’ve made friends with a publisher. After months of negotiations with various publishers we finally met our perfect match. They’re indie. They’re crazies (like us), and absolutely awesome. We hereby present Coffee Stain Publishing as our new pardner’s in crime.

The Progress of Huntdown

Since the handshake with Coffee Stain in October we´ve literally closed the door to the bunker, focusing on the development. Huntdown is now in pre-alpha and it looks better than ever. We have updated the overall graphics sincerely, redesigning the whole game. New effects like debris and shrapnel from explosions and destructibles now makes Huntdown a more intense experience. We´re also proud to present new assets to our team, Marcus Jerner, who is responsible for the art work of the levels. Every level is now an amazing piece of art itself. As Tommy is still making the music Huntdown´s sound experience is now carefully monitored by Christopher Malmqvist and Olof Ejstes who produce SFX for gun shots, screams and all the craziness you will encounter in Huntdown. We will soon give all the guys a proper presentation.

About Coffee Stain Studios

Started in the middle of nowhere in Sweden back in 2010 by a group of friends, Coffee Stain Studios quickly grew into one of the world’s most successful indie developers. Partly because of good timing, but mainly because of great games. The studio is on a streak where both Sanctum and Sanctum 2 has sold over a million copies, while Goat Simulator, launched in 2014, has turned an amazing 20 M downloads across a wide range of platforms. Nowadays Coffee Stain also Publish externally developed titles through Coffee Stain Publishing, and we’re super-happy to announce that we are their first case.
