Game Developer – Unreal (f/m/d)

Webseite Spoondrift Games

Spoondrift Games is an indie developer that spins spooky stories to inspire adventure. Starting in November, we are developing the prototype of our first concept, Dead Letters – Leaving Lawton’s Top. It is a coming-of-age story of a young adult who wants to leave their sleepy town behind but is being held back by monstrous manifestations of their fears. With stealth and puzzle elements, they will overcome their fears through gameplay based on actual coping mechanisms and pave their way forward on this surreal journey.
