About Filament Games

The best of commercial game development and learning sciences.

Filament Games is a game production studio that exclusively creates learning games. Our core competency is producing games that combine best practices in commercial game development with key concepts from the learning sciences. Accordingly, our senior staff is comprised of individuals who are equal parts game and instructional designers; a "dual literacy" that allows us to engineer authentic game-play mechanics (rules and interactions that directly correlate with specific learning objectives).

A great working environment!

Our stylish, fun, and relaxed office is located at the heart of downtown Madison, a lively city with a world-­class university, vibrant tech industry, and beautiful state capitol. Downtown Madison is a bustling area with coffee shops, eclectic restaurants, and music venues that are all within walking distance of the office. Even better, our office features mobile workspaces, an open atmosphere, plenty of collaboration spaces, and views of the capitol, Lake Monona, and Lake Mendota.

We work hard and we play hard!

We believe that the best work - and the best life - ­comes from a healthy balance between work and play, discipline and fun. Our office culture reflects this. For example, we have flexible work hours, LAN nights, grill-­outs, water balloon fights, Show-­n-­Tells, paintball outings and the occasional Nerf battle.
