Swedish company Gold Town Games (GTG) released their first game World Hockey Manager in the fall of 2017. The studio comprised of 18 employees from Skellefteå created the world’s first mobile “hockey manager”, a mobile game in a niche genre mixed with a sharp focus on a sport popular only in North America, Scandinavia and couple of countries in Europe.
