Dirtybit is an award winning game studio located in the city of Bergen, on the west coast of Norway
Our mission is to let people create memorable moments together!
Dirtybit was founded in 2011 by students at NTNU - the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, who joined forces to make mobile games.
The founders wanted to recreate the feelings and the memorable moments they got from competing with each other while playing Mario Kart together when they were kids, and bring this to new generations on mobile.
Most multiplayer games for mobile in the market at the time was turn based, so they started developing the game “Fun Run”, where people could have fun and play together in real time.
After winning the “Norwegian Game Awards”, the game was launched globally. After a very successful social media campaign, where players were encouraged to tweet about #funrun on Twitter, #funrun trended worldwide. It started spreading at schools in the US, and after reaching the #1 position in the US app store, players all over the world started playing Fun Run. That’s how our story started!
120 MILLION DOWNLOADS
We produce and publish games for mobile. Today our games in the Fun Run series have more than 120 million downloads all over the world.
Today our team consists of 19 people. By being small and focusing on openness and having fun, we've managed to become more than co-workers: we're friends who share a passion for great games.
The office is located in the middle of the city center of Bergen, surrounded by mountains and great nature, and close to the main attractions in the city.
We keep our awards with pride on a shelf in our meeting room to remind us of some of our proudest moments (and to brag to our guests of course)
