System Developer to Wanderword

 

Wanderword was founded in 2018 by gaming industry veterans Peter Zetterberg and Thomas Lindgren, backed by Jacob Dalborg, the former Bonnier Books CEO and Peter Levin, another Swedish game industry veteran. The business idea, interactive audio entertainment, was sprung out of a hobby project Peter Zetteberg has worked on since 2012. Wanderword is the market leader in interactive audio entertainment with a combination of its patent based platform and editor and its interactive audio entertainment studio, developing content based on its own IPs, such as Cursed Painting, Escape 63rd, Mathcaster, to mention a few and a number of licensed IP from world leading publishing houses/IP owners within interactive audio games and interactive audio books, like The Bard’s Tale from inXile. 

The company has its development studio in Boden, Sweden and creative and business development offices in Stockholm and Seattle. Wanderword’s mission is to inspire the world to become active listeners and through its rich and diverse portfolio and is committed to delivering seamless and engaging stories to users of all ages and abilities.
