From the creators of Crayon Physics Deluxe, The Swapper and Baba Is You:

Nolla Games

We're a bunch of nerds working on Noita in Helsinki.

Nolla Games was founded by:

Petri Purho is best known as the creator of Crayon Physics Deluxe. In his youth he also made a lot tiny freeware games. He has also made a bunch of board games, but he hasn't told about it to anyone. So please keep it a secret.

Olli Harjola released his first commercial game The Swapper in 2013. Besides indie games, he also dabbles in music, live visuals and making programming languages.

Arvi Teikari is also known as Hempuli. Over the years he has released a lot of tiny experimental games, so many in fact that he doesn't remember all of them. One of the games we all remind him that he did is Baba Is You.


Antti Tiihonen is a Finnish indie game developer who likes to work in multiple creative roles, preferably all at once. He is also known as one of the co-founders of Almost Human, the studio behind Legend of Grimrock, the indie hit series of old school RPGs.

Niilo Takalainen is a sound designer and composer. He has worked on games such as Dicey Dungeons, Environmental Station Alpha, Tormentor X Punisher and Broforce. In his free time he enjoys the outdoors and music jams. Niilo is behind Noita's sound design.

From Grotto is a psychedelic rock band from Finland that combines jazz, rock and various other elements to create musical journeys for everyone’s ears. The members of the band are Pekka Takalainen, Antti Pasonen, Riku Hyötyläinen and Joonas Turner. The Noita soundtrack is a collaboration of From Grotto and Niilo Takalainen.
