Gathering Tree is a game development studio based in Istanbul, Turkey

with a legacy of making community-focused, moddable, expandable, replayable, strategically deep, and content-heavy games.

Our vision is to create a studio culture that brings together the most talented developers to work on small teams – where everyone can be empowered, learn from each other, and have a large impact. Our culture is still developing, and we need talented, good humans from different backgrounds to come and shape it with us.
