Our story.

What is Kiemura and who is behind it?

The family that makes games together.

Kiemura is a game company from Kotka, a small town on the southeast coast of Finland. We develop and release video games for mobile, PC and game consoles. We are also available for hire for game and web development projects.

Kiemura was founded in August 2015 by married couple Jyri and Piia Kilpeläinen. Before founding the company, Jyri and Piia released five mobile games on their free time. Their breakthrough title was Tiltagon which was published in April 2015 by Canadian game publisher Noodlecake Games. Tiltagon has currently over 1.3 million downloads worldwide which helped the couple to reach their long-time dream: their own game company.

Jyri and Piia have two daughters and two dogs who all make sure that the life at Kilpeläinen residence never gets boring.

Fun fact: Kiemura means 'a squiggle' in English.
