About us

Lockpickle is a studio driven by the dream of making video games with truly groundbreaking gameplay.

Lockpickle was founded by Olli Etuaho in late 2018 after he left NVIDIA to pursue smaller and better things. Here's what some past collaborators have to say about him:

Olli made tremendous contributions to the WebGL ecosystem, spanning the deepest levels of the shader compiler all the way up to improving the performance of web-based virtual reality content. Olli is an extraordinarily talented engineer and a pleasure to work with. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Olli is an excellent developer with great teamwork, and a world-class WebGL expert. We collaborated on the ANGLE project where he was the de-facto maintainer of the shader compiler, pushing it to higher standards of testability and maintainability all the while adding new features. Olli contributed to most other parts of the WebGL implementation ecosystem too! His excellent communication made it easy to work across timezones and I definitely recommend working with him!
