Vilnius is the perfect spot for a creative outfit like ours. Our team is a mix of talent from different countries, and Vilnius has a long-standing tradition of being a melting pot of east and west, north and south, tolerant of any and every faith, culture and language.
For Gamedev we are the perfect fit. Small enough to get things done well and done quickly. And with highly skilled talent, creative and inspired people and a sense of community that blends the best of East and West – there’s no better place to be right now.
Closely knit community
More than 10 studios from RU/UA/BY have relocated to LT over past 2 years, and they have built a close supportive community that’s there to provide help and advice for new companies looking to set up in Vilnius.
Joining the Lithuanian Game Developers Association is also a great way of quickly establishing connections with local studios and partners as well as sharing gamedev knowledge.
We at Invest Lithuania hold meetings for our key gamedev clients every quarter to share info on our sales process, business environment initiatives, and get feedback. This helps us to build a stronger and more active gamedev community.

But why just listen to us
We mainly chose Lithuania due to the business conditions and its convenient location. But we got so much more that we expected – starting with incredibly creative people to work with, and ending with strong support from local institutions and even risk capital funds.
In Vilnius I can breathe easier in every sense: it is a green, clean city with lots of happy and like-minded people. Here I even run into my colleagues accidentally – many of them work close by. All the stories that I heard about the IT hub in Vilnius are true!
