Decades of adventure

BORN FROM A SHARED PASSION

EXPLORE OUR STORY
Frima - Studio de jeux vidéo basé à Québec

We are a video game studio based in Quebec. Designing and delivering entertaining digital experiences has been our daily obsession for two decades.

The adventure began back in 2003 for the three founders in a poorly insulated Quebec City apartment. The origin of the name “Frima”, the French word for frost, testifies to their humble beginnings as they joined forces during the bitter cold of winter; working in an apartment with frosty windows. These modest beginnings did not prevent Frima from producing web games for the biggest Hollywood brands early on, such as Harry Potter and Looney Tunes.

Our game development has been driven by creative audacity since 2003, and guided by our expertise in market and data analysis since 2018.
