The Company: Founded in 1997, Triumph Studios creates captivating strategy games that are renowned across the world. Having created the Age of Wonders® and Overlord® series, our games involve taking over the world one way or another, hence our name. But we’re nice folks with a fun workplace, cooperating closely with our fans and parent company to create the immersive game experiences. Triumph is located in Delft, the Netherlands. We have been a part of Swedish publisher Paradox Interactive since 2017.

We offer the best of both worlds: a relatively small but growing studio (~30 people) where there is room for flexibility and autonomy, combined with support from the large 400+ person Paradox Interactive group.

The Location: Triumph Studios is located in the bustling university town of Delft, The Netherlands. Our office is located near the train station at the edge of the beautiful historic center filled with restaurants, bars and shops. Cities like Rotterdam, The Hague and Amsterdam are all in commuting distance.
