Gamecan is a rapidly growing game development studio based in Pärnu, Estonia. We specialize in Unreal Engine.

With our fast growth it’s been a challenge to find new talent as fast as we’d like to expand our team and we see that the problem is increasing globally. More and more Unreal Engine specialists are needed in the game industry as the engine is quickly growing in popularity.
