Inside the Box

Founded in late 2016, Easy Trigger Games are the developers behind the arcade shooter Huntdown®. The founders of the company consist of two passionate geeks, Tommy Gustafsson and Andreas Rehnberg, both of which have been raised in front of Commodore computers. The studio is located in the cold and bitter city of Trollhättan, Sweden.

Our ambition is to make entertainment experiences that are highly enjoyable. The key is elaborate ideas through well-designed games. We leave nothing to chance. When thinking outside the box is becoming the norm, our model is to combine proven gameplay elements that we know make a magnificent experience. The inside of the box is rich and filled with treasures.


Ideas evolve side by side. We don't believe in hierarchies or closed doors, we believe in a collectivist approach. We are convinced that a small guerrilla team of awesome developers is the key to the otherwise impenetrable gateways to pure magic.
We love what we do and are deeply committed to it.


Andreas Rehnberg


Multitalented like Leonardo da Vinci and humble like Dalai Lama, this is the company whiz kid. Huntdown with its entire engine and brilliantly written AI is thoroughly coded by this man's hand. Andreas perceive the world in green numbers and digits. He has mastered the Matrix. You can't find anyone that works out like this hulk of a man.

Tommy Gustafsson


This is the fella' behind the story, art, concept, music and direction of Huntdown. He's a nerd. Introvert. Lone wolf. Coffee addict. Father. Sometimes a perfectionist. He is way too interested in global affairs, and when the world of politics is getting to him he escapes civilization by going on fishing trips in his small boat to rest his mind.

Marcus Jerner


Behold the creature of the night. Left-handed. Color blind. Extremely intelligent. Marcus unfold supernatural powers when holding a pencil – the design is pure wizardry. In addition to drawing graphics he designs levels, encounters and special effects. Marcus is also behind the gameplay flow and the meta progression.

Joakim Antonsson


A great team needs great management! A gamer, a drummer, and a lover of the golden age of home entertainment, Joakim has a soul birthed from the tallest mountains and the deepest forests of the north, and he’s carved out his own drum-sticks from the trees of wisdom within. This old lumberjack loves his extreme metal... because... who doesn’t?

Gustav Johansson


Games and Game Design have been a lifelong passion for Gustav. Even as a wee boy drawing custom levels of his favourite games (we're looking at you Rayman!). Also something of a musical genius, he plays violin, bass, guitar, and drums in various groups across several genres. His title is 'programmer', but he wears several hats.

Lawrence Davis


Y'all know Easy Trigger only works with the best of the best. That’s why we bring you heavyweight graphic champion Mr. Davis, directly from Oakland, California. This rooster doesn’t just talk the talk. He possesses a Master of Fine Arts degree but nonetheless... He walks the walk. The only downside moving to Sweden is he misses his chicken (yes he owns a live pet chicken).

Matt Shaw


Ladies and gentlemen, let us present Matt 'The Giant' Shaw. He's already a legend, and without a doubt, the best pixel artist on Earth. Hailing from the plains of Pea Ridge, Arkansas, he moved to Sweden to wield his pixel magic. Matt's gaming resume is thicker than a strategy guide. He dissects games, analyzes core mechanics, and deciphers every design element like an archaeologist.

Philip Back


Let us introduce you to Phil 'The Professional' Back. He's a racing enthusiast, a moose hunter, and an incredibly talented artist. This young stud already exudes design experience. Philip is super-fast, strikingly smart, and has social skills to match. There is nothing he can't create. He needs his Formula 1 fix, and being a son of Trollhättan, he proudly brags about his precious SAAB.

Peiyu Ling


This wizard is one of the sharpest blades from the magnificent city of Guilin, China. A perfect fit for the ‘Tropa de Elite’ team. He enjoys Sweden though his favourite Guilin Rice Noodles are pretty hard to find in a town like Trollhättan. He’s practising traditional Chinese martial arts and Sanda kickboxing developed by the military. Watch out folks!
