Senior Game Developer

Posted On: December 8th, 2016    Job Type: Part Time    Job Location: ,

This is a Unity focused role with a strong emphasis on game jam style prototyping. It will involve working with the founders developing prototypes to establish the interactions, animations, set pieces, and input methods that are most promising and fun. The target platforms will include mobile devices, so knowledge of how Unity’s input and event systems interact with native touch events (predominantly iOS) will be very useful.

The work will be broken into a series of 5-10 day sprints to develop a wide range of prototypes each designed to explore different qualities of interaction potential. Amongst the areas of exploration are:

– new input methods
– rendering techniques
– set pieces and vignettes
– level design concepts
– character behaviours and animation

Capability in the following areas would be useful:
– some character modelling
– mechanim
– character control & input
– shader pipeline knowledge
– good experience with C#

It would be a 2-3 month contract with potential for full-time.

Playdiation is a small studio developing characterful and cinematic games in London. We’re currently looking for two exceptional people to help prototype and develop our games. The nature of our technology and pipeline are just emerging, there are extraordinary new gameplay qualities and entirely new kinds of game experience to explore. We need talented people who are excited by this opportunity to invent and break new ground.

If you’d like to work in a small, ambitious and inventive team to shape new kinds of play we’d love to hear from you.
