About the Company

The Studio:

The new Paradox Barcelona studio is the latest addition to the Paradox studio family. Founded in 2020, Paradox Tinto is established by a small and dedicated team of industry veterans led by Johan Andersson. Building on our experience from Paradox Development Studio, this new team will create awesome grand strategy games and take on the role as the custodian and developer of the Europa Universalis brand, the game that started it all twenty years ago.

The Team:

At Paradox Tinto we work in a small, gameplay focused team, where everyone is part of crafting the player experience and has an input on the design of the game. We believe that game development should be fun and strive for a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere. Being a small studio built from the ground up, we expect everyone to contribute to the development of the studio and its culture.

This warm and sunny weather is perfect to enjoy outdoor sports and leisure activities with your family and friends around the area; while mountain lovers still have a wide range of all-year round mountain activities in the Pyrenees, only 2h drive.

In addition, this historical town will captivate you with its cultural events, Mediterranean food and its excellent Spanish wine of course!
