Critical Charm
Based in Finland

Release date:




Critical Charm’s first game is a VR game where the player is tasked with defending their village from the hordes set on them by the King, who are intent on taking everything the villagers have. As the only Giant the player will have to smash, bash, and mash the enemies while rallying the villagers and rebuilding the defenses to hold off the attacks. A Giant Problem is set to release into Early Access in February, 2019.


Critical Charm was founded in June, 2018 with the goal of making a mobile game, though the idea had been rolling around Marjo’s head since January 2018. That soon changed as realities set in and the team learned about themselves and their capabilities. This saw the team go through a number of prototypes to figure out what’s possible and what amount of time was needed to complete each game.

They settled on A Giant Problem as their first release given a number of its unique selling points. And have been developing the game since December, 2018. Critical Charm works out of Games Factory in Helsinki and is participating in Farm League, the game incubator at Games Factory.

Critical Charm may have set out to make mobile games but they don’t see themselves as a mobile only studio. They’re planning their next game even now, and if a game suits a particular platform they’ll happily work to get it there.
