To most people, the workplace is a very serious place. At Gamania, Gamanians are 100% serious when they work but they also manage to retain their own distinctive character in order to work and play at their own pace. “Love to Play” is in the Gamanian DNA. The boundless energies that sustain this philosophy well from a willingness to explore and a zest for life.
Gamanians’ Hidden Talents
An engineer who becomes a guitar teacher after work; a strait-laced legal affairs person who is a street dancing enthusiast; the figure-collecting otaku who loves the great outdoors… Gamanians talents are more than they seem. In addition to being experts at their jobs, they also throw themselves enthusiastically into learning new things outside of work. Some people even joke about work being a distraction! Being curious and enthusiastic about everything is a trait common to all Gamanians. Having a “side-job” is not only good for the body and mind, it also increases the flexibility and creativity of Gamanians. It is this clash of diversity between people that gives Gamania its exciting variety today.
How do you judge someone by their appearance? You can never tell what hidden talents a Gamanian might have, but you can sense their love for exploration and freedom. Despite being busy at work, Gamanians still manage to do things at their own pace and take all challenges in their own way.

Justin said he chose to work at Gamania because of the environment here. The gym and various different activities at Gamania showed him that Gamanians really value quality of life. After joining the company, he became part of the dance club and met many others who shared his passion for dance. He was thrilled to continue an interest he pursued during his time as a student. According to him, “It is truly rare to find a job which balances development of both left and right hemispheres in the brain!” In fact, the dance club is not the only popular activity. Many people learn new skills through Gamanian clubs like yoga, tabletop gaming, flower arrangement and more. Some have even joined more clubs than they ever did in university!

How do all these unique Gamanians live inside Gamania? Gamania is a place with culture and you can see the thought that went into every little detail.

It is a very organic and friendly creative environment where Gamanians can be themselves and explore all kinds of possibilities.
