We love playing together
Aftnareld is a different kind of studio based in Linköping, Sweden. A studio started by a gaming couple with strong will to create fun and challenging cooperative games for other gaming couples & close friends. We want to contribute to more memorable experiences with people you love! Aftnareld translates to evenings (aftnar) and fire (eld), which represents what we want to encourage with our games: to spend evenings together around the modern fire.
We want players to experience exciting adventures together, exploring and interacting in interesting worlds with gameplay that feels fun and challenges both reflexes and problem-solving.
Together is better
We want our games encourage cooperation and to strengthen relationships by having fun and overcoming challenges together. Our games are designed with
co-op in mind from day one.
Aim for the stars
We may be a small team, but our ambitions are not. With strong visions and patient minds, we keep iterating our games to create the best experiences we possibly can. We only create games we’d love to play ourselves!

Narin enjoys 3D-modelling (especially creating creatures), world-building and game design together with Valle. Narin also likes hanging out on different social plattforms and connecting with people.
Have been programming games as a hobby since high school. Graduated as a high school teacher in mathematics and chemistry at Linköping University.
