3… 2… 1… Blast off!


This is the official Arrowhead site; A site which has been fairly un-maintained for a long period, but now has, like the phoenix, risen from the ashes and is ready to take on the world with the rest of his boy-band friends.

What’s this site going to be about you ask? Well, I can tell you what it’s not going to be: A cold, corporate place where we sell and market our games using fancy graphics and whatnot. Instead it’ll be your go-to site for all news considering Arrowhead and the development of our games.

So, some anonymous guy on the interwebs promised you stuff? Who is this mysterious stranger? I’m glad you asked! I’m Johan Pilestedt, CEO and Game Director of Arrowhead. I started the development of Magicka together with Emil Englund back in the days of 2008 when we made a 2D prototype for Swedish Game Awards, which led to the foundation of Arrowhead along with four other students.

In the upcoming days I’m sure that the other members of Arrowhead will introduce themselves, and give you both insightful advice on how to get into the games industry, ideas on how to develop tech, design considerations as well as many silly images. No matter what’ll be posted I hope that you will find it entertaining and give you an insight to who we are.
