Welcome to our humble cave! We are Gentle Troll — an award winning game studio based in the beautiful city of Würzburg, Germany.

Based on some 12 years of know-how we design and create your games and interactive applications for Web, PC and mobile devices. Over the last years, we have focused on Serious Games with an emphasis on engaging gameplay like our recent very successful mobile game "The Unstoppables".

Longterm cooperation and partnerships are key to our work. Whenever projects get big or resources get tight we flexibly stack up our team with hand selected specialists from our well groomed network of seasoned developers and artists. This way, we ensure you get the best product possible while keeping the project on schedule.

Are you looking for a dynamic team to build your Serious Game, Augmented or Virtual Reality application? Give us a ring or drop us a line. We are eager to find out how we can help you.



Our baby, "The Unstoppables", was nominated among four other very impressive games at yesterdays Animated Games Award Germany in Stuttgart.

Being aware of the strong lineup, we were more than happy and surprised to receive a Special Mention as a jury joker to honor the way we portrayed people with disabilities within the game. Thank you so much!


Gentle Troll is growing: Moritz Krohn, game developer with a talent for illustration, has joined our team today.

Welcome, Moritz, your Unity and Phaser skills shall come in handy on our quest!


We are very proud to announce that our children's book app "The Wunderglasses" ("Die Brille") has won the German Ebook Award in the category "Children and Youths".

Thank you, we feel incredibly honored and happy!


The Wunderglasses 2.0 is now available on the App Store. It now runs on iPhone, too, and comes with magnificent word highlighting to support beginning readers. Check it out!
