We want our employees to broaden their horizons. Playing other games in order to analyse how they work, discussing game design, watching colleagues building levels, talking to coders about the complexity of a fight system – all of this is not only possible, but actively encouraged.

Good planning is important to us and we work hand in hand in order to meet our deadlines. While we love our jobs, we also love to play. There are organized network gaming events at our office from time to time, as well as Magic the Gathering and tabletop sessions. Some of us also like to cook our lunch together, our company breakfasts and lunch break barbecues are legendary.

We are looking for people who love games just like we do. We want people for our team who like challenges and enjoy being creative. We want our team members to share our philosophy and identify with our company. If you think making games is more than “just a job”, then you might be just the right person to join us!
