About us

We are evolving the art and science of play by operating on a scaled-up, vertically integrated organizational model to achieve mastery in the full set of game development specializations.

Our global network of multidisciplinary locations functions like an integrated hub, offering our partners a seamless workflow development, cost, and time effectiveness, while also ensuring excellence in all aspects of game development.

We have deep expertise in product development, cross-platform deployment, parallel launch strategies, user experience optimization, free-to-play monetization systems, data science, live operations, and more.


Within a decade establish a leading position in every segment of the game development supply chain.


We are a community of artisans delivering positive impact by evolving the science and art of play.


We believe the team comes before the individual, the collective before the ego, We before Me. We see our staff as partners, not employees, and our managers as servant leaders. Our teammates are self-empowered, entrepreneurial, and responsible business owners, holding their peers accountable for results and striving for greatness together.

For our teams to thrive, we create an environment of open communication, filtered through honesty and integrity, where every voice can be heard, leaving room for challenge and debate.

Play is an expression of freedom, and it stands at the root of innovation, which represents a key competitive differentiator for our agency. Innovation springs from our natural curiosity, and we foster an experimental mindset in our approach to every business and creative challenge.

We have the courage to be bold and we create an environment where it's safe to fail. We see mistakes as opportunities to grow.

We want our company to be a place where everyone finds their calling, which fulfils the human potential of its staff by nurturing a lifelong commitment to learning.

The growth mindset is a key differentiator for Amber, which motivates us to foster access to multidisciplinary educational resources geared at raising the skill level of our talent and offering learning opportunities to the communities in our broader ecosystem.

We foster a culture of continuous improvement, thus empowering our people to pursue incremental innovation in all facets of our work. We set up standards and KPIs for our work, maximizing return on investment and pursuing sound budget management practices.

Kaizen is our daily resolution to do things better, by empowering our teams to move fast, sharing best practices among teams, opting for simplicity versus complexity, removing bureaucracy and unnecessary process layers, keeping teams small and agile.

As artisans, our quest for quality demands we work to perfect our craft, so we iterate until we're happy with the results and we audit our own work. We seek to create products and deliver services that earn the respect of our partners.

We invest in obtaining the skills required for performance and we take pride in our work. We take ownership and own the outcome of our work, aiming for high partner and customer satisfaction, always striving to surprise and delight.

We see our company as a caring place, which feels like you're working with friends, doing important work that we're personally placed on earth to do. We cultivate selflessness and create an environment where everyone works diligently to help others.

We start from a place of trust and assume good intentions, allowing teams to deal constructively with conflict. We value authenticity, work for inclusion, and embrace diversity in all its forms. Amber is a people centric organization: finding talent, keeping, growing, and nurturing them, not to mention inspiring, supporting and enabling them throughout their careers.

Amber sits at the center of a series of concentric circles representing our studio, the local game dev industry and ultimately the broader society in which our teams are located. We feel a deep sense of responsibility and empathy towards the community within our company, industry, and society.

Giving back is part of our ethos and we'll invest part of our profit every year to make a difference. Our staff further contributes by volunteering their time to charitable causes, educating the youth on industry opportunities, and investing in our shared future.
