Rain Games AS is a Norwegian independent video game developer forged from a cooperative community of local artists and programmers. We are interested in building a world that players can uncover through hints and details scattered within our games.

We are now composed of two development teams working on our next projects: Teslagrad 2 and Girl Genius!

TEAM ONE – Teslagrad 2

Peter Wingaard

CEO, Team leader and Level Design

Our dear, all-powerful boss! When he does not run the company he handles game design and storytelling.

Inventing and designing games since he was 12, he loves good stories and bold choices. He took a small break to study physics before going back to his first love and founding Rain Games.

He’s the Tiki-shirt wearing Team Leader as well as a cocktail shaker! He lived a previous life as a professional Bar Manager before deciding that game development was his true calling.

He handles the reins of his team, the design decisions of his project, and even makes critical business decisions!

Max Linke

Programmer

Evangelia Koutsoukou

Artist

Born and raised in the land of moussaka, with a background in Fine Arts. After moving to Norway, Rain took her in to work with 2D and 3Dassets, as well as anything creative that she can contribute to!

There’s nothing she loves more than playing video games, curled up on the couch with her two cats.

Tarjei Målsnes

Programmer

Roland Kvam

Programmer

His job consists in programming and implementing mechanics to create organised chaos!

On the side, he makes 3D, likes to cook, dabbles a bit with dancing and will never say no to a good movie marathon.

Did we mention? He can run a pretty fast 100m. Especially if he’s got running shoes with lights. “They go so fast!”

Management

Aleksander Egeland

Administrative secretary, chief of finances

Aleksander is a Russian linguist turned game-developer and one of the Rain’s founders.

In addition to writing for Mesmer, he translated the entire game into Russian!  His favourite games genre are open world RPG and sandbox survival. He can spend 40+ hours in an RPGs without advancing the main plot because, as we all know, exploration is where the fun is!

Fredrik Andersson

Community, Press

With a background in digital culture and digital marketing, Fredrik is in charge of the marketing and community.

He surely likes gaming and is often seen playing online. Also an avid gym goer.

French ex-scientist who got adopted by the company to put out potential fires!

There is nothing she likes more than a new challenge, and is unstoppable once her mind is set. She loves going to the gym, teaches dancing and will make sure to provide a constant supply of french crêpes at the office.
