Our story

Torn Banner began with a group of mod enthusiasts who dreamed of creating games that needed to exist, and would stop at nothing to bring the ultimate version of them to market.

2007

Age of Chivalry mod

A team comes together to blend the FPS, Fighting Game & Third Person Action genres and deliver the first multiplayer melee slasher.

2012

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare

Chivalry is released and becomes the best-selling Steam game during the week of Christmas 2012.

2013

Toronto office opens

The success of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare allows us to open a Toronto office and begin working as a unified team.

2013

Chivalry Deadliest Warrior

The inventive Deadliest Warrior DLC releases, while Chivalry begins to receive ports to PlayStation & Xbox.

Mirage Arcane Warfare

While not a commercial success, from Mirage we learned a great deal about production & managing creative vision within our team.

Chivalry 2

We launched Chivalry 2 which sold 1M within the first 2 months of launch, across PC, Xbox and PlayStation platforms.

2023+

Growth

Torn Banner is looking to expand our team while we aim to grow to the scale of our creative potential and shift to multi-project productions.

2024

No More Room in Hell 2

We announce our next title, the co-op action horror No More Room in Hell 2, after our acquisition of fellow Toronto team Lever Games.

Our Culture

We aim to foster collaborative & flexible environments in which our creativity will thrive in! We look to find ways to cater to and best support our teammates and their particular needs as individuals.

Innovation

Today, we’re continuing to add to the smash hit Chivalry 2 while developing new unannounced projects. We’re looking to grow our team – but stay collaborative, indie and agile. We’re on the hunt for new team members that share a passion for cutting edge gaming and want to help create innovative new experiences that focus on challenge and fun.

Collaboration & Agility

Each individual at Torn Banner has a huge impact on the final product that we put out. We put emphasis on being open with each other, giving/receiving critical feedback, and not letting a false sense of authority cloud our vision. The more eyes and input that we have from different disciplines and personality types, the better our releases will be.

Benefits

Relocation assistance

We hire the best – with no boundaries. We offer relocation packages and can also provide guidance for immigration and employment requirements.

Bonus Structure

When our company does well, so do our employees.

Three weeks whenever you like, Fridays off in the summer, plus a week in late December.

Company Retreats

We like to keep a close-knit team, so twice a year the whole company gets away for a retreat.

Do your best work after a sleep-in? That’s fine. We have shared “core hours” but beyond that, your schedule is up to you.

Monthly learning credit

Want to work on some new skills? That works for us.

Free breakfasts & snacks

Bagels, granola, smoothies, soft drinks… it’s on us!

Happy hour

Every month or more, we grab as much as we can carry from Toronto breweries and local restaurants for a relaxed happy hour.
