Image & Form International Aktiebolag is a Swedish video game developer based in Gothenburg. Founded by Brjánn Sigurgeirsson in 1997, the company started out developing educational software before shifting to video games in 2009. Image & Form is best known for its SteamWorld series, which had its latest release with SteamWorld Dig 2 in September 2017.

On 25 January 2018, Image & Form announced it had merged with Zoink, another Gothenburg-based studio, to form Thunderful. While acting as one studio, each of the merged studios still plan to develop their own games under the new name, collaborating with the others as needed.[3]
