COME PLAY!

SkyRocket Studios creates midcore and casual mobile games to entertain vibrant communities of players every day! Through a combination of internal-development and second-party partnerships, we have released hit free-to-play games which run the gamut of genres – from puzzle favorites like Cascade and the Fairway Solitaire franchise, to the fan-favorite RPG, Dungeon Boss.

SkyRocket Studios is an integrated part of the Big Fish community of studios (AKA “The Pond”). Located at the Seattle Headquarters in Lower Queen Anne, our offices are conveniently located on the beautiful Puget Sound, just outside the hustle-and-bustle of Downtown. We’re a short walk away from great Seattle attractions like Seattle Center, the Olympic Sculpture Garden, shops and restaurants at the pier, and a variety of food truck hot-spots. Need commuting options? We’re right along multiple bus routes for the transit-takers, the Elliott Bay trail for cyclists, and have a secure on-site garage for four-wheeled commuters. Our facilities are built around work and play, with state of the art tools and software, and amenities that make work fun! Take a break in one of our game rooms, refresh yourself with a free snack or beverage, or get out for some fresh air on one of our waterside balconies.
