Henchman & Goon

A small independent video game studio in Bergen, Norway. Currently working on our third game.

History

Henchman & Goon was founded in beautiful Bergen in the late summer of 2012 by a gang of bright-eyed youths with a dream of making great games.

Game dev jobs are few and far between (especially in Norway) so the idea was that H&G would provide the founders with the job they had always wanted.

After several years of learning and growing some of the original founders split (amicably) off to do their own thing. Along the way, a motley band of great folks joined and Henchman & Goon released the old-school platformer Flem, and later the (now award-winning) co-op puzzler Pode.

Today three of the original founders – Yngvill, Henrik, and Morten – form the kernel of the company, creating video games alongside a cast of recurring collaborators and companions.
