Making Games Without Compromise
Mighty Bear is a Singapore-based studio building the next generation of massively multiplayer online mobile games. The team is a collective of games industry veterans from the likes of King, Ubisoft, EA, Lucasarts, Disney, Gameloft, and Jagex. We aim to make games that combine the depth of desktop gaming with the accessibility of mobile.
We make games the Mighty Bear way – using a set of principles and
values bear-lues which we believe in and practice everyday.
We do what’s right, rather than doing what’s “easy” or obvious. We don’t follow the crowd, we forge our own path.
Execution over Perfection. We hold regular and frequent tests with our players to get the feedback we need to make games truly great.
We don’t micromanage. We tell people what we need, not how to do it. We give people the room to grow and provide them with the tools and space to work their magic.
We don’t care where you’re from or what you’re into. Everyone is treated the same regardless of seniority, background, ethnicity, or sexual preference.
Transparency and honesty build trust. We tell our staff the good and the bad. Only by having open and difficult discussions can we get the feedback, trust, and commitment we need to succeed.
Meet the bears
CEO | Papa Bear
An industry veteran with experience working at King, Ubisoft, Bigpoint, AKQA, Empire Interactive, and Laughing Jackal, and one-time Develop Magazine “30 under 30” recipient (though sadly he’s now far too old to qualify). Simon oversees Business and Product Design at Mighty Bear.
CTO | Techy Bear
Previously at King and Disney, Fadzuli is an ex-scholar who was once mentioned in a speech given by the Prime Minister of Singapore. These days he contents himself with ensuring our games run flawlessly on every device.
Art Director | Arty Bear
Ben cut his teeth working on big franchises at Ubisoft, before going on to help develop Gameloft’s Vietnam art studio, big-name IPs for LucasArts, launching the startup Booster Pack, and eventually joining the others at King. Ben makes everything look beautiful.
Producer | Bear-able
An ex-competitive gamer, Abel previously worked at Nonstop Games (before and after the King acquisition) as well as a number of independent studios in Singapore. Abel makes sure our games feel amazing, are fun to play and arrive on-time.
Lead Client Developer | Codey Bear

Senior Concept Artist | Crayon Bear
Gary is a legend on the Singapore gaming art scene having worked at King, Booster Pack, and LucasArts, as well as having drawn for Marvel, among others. Gary creates the original concepts for the characters and environments in our games.
Senior Backend Developer | Some-Bear-Dy
Legend has it that in a previous life, Andrew appeared in a office without warning and started squashing bugs (or creating them, depending on who you ask). He has since adapted to just complaining about systems that don't work well - and fixing them.
Junior Developer | Baby Bear
Daniel used to flaunt his multilinguistic skills by being a freelance translator but has since evolved to a baby bear that makes sure all the buttons in our games are clickable.
Geir Ove Alnes
Game Designer | Meta Bear
Geir used to be an adventurer like you, but then he took an arrow to the knee and decided to give up that carefree meme lifestyle in favor of game design. Now he lives for spreadsheet formulas, design documents, and causing trouble for programmers through impossible feature requests.
Design Director | Astro Bear
Despite majoring in astrophysics, Jan decided to leave the observatory to make things fun. With over a decade of design experience at studios like Gaspowered, Bigpoint, Snapdragon, and EA, Jan helps to decide what features will go into our next big hit.
General Artist | Coffee Bear
A self-proclaimed coffee addict, Melissa has a strong 8-year foundation in digital animation. Melissa breathes life into all our games by helping make all concept art translate seamlessly from paper to game.
Lead UX Artist | Button Bear
With 10 years of mobile games and creative industry experience under his belt, Morby is the key personnel in Bear Force One that makes sure that text is aligned and buttons stay readable.
QA Tester | Bug Bear

Concept Artist/ Animator | Potato Bear
Venty has tried her hand at everything from animating a Disney Junior show to taking charge of all 2D cutscenes in Masquerada: Songs and Shadows. Now she models, rigs, and animates the moving parts in our games so that they come alive.
Community & Growth Manager | Noona Bear
Amanda used to be a gamemaster for League of Legends in Singapore with a passion for esports and has since redirected that passion to taking care of all the players who believe in the Bears. She sometimes contemplates opening up her own Auntie Agony column.
