Unity Game Engineer (Contract)

Want to Join the Circus?

We are looking for freelance Unity game engineer to us help us build and modify amazing games for the incredible micro-amusement park we are building over the next few months. Our game experiences combine casual games, narrative and physical elements (that may or may not include lasers, fire and robots… really!) 

You love games and can’t wait to build the future of entertainment.  You’ve pushed yourself to go deeper than get-it-done scripting, to understand how individual mechanics can be perfected to make a game feel “solid”. You see abstract algorithms, 3D math, complex state management, and optimization as exciting challenges, not necessary evils. And at the same time, you know that games get really exciting when they go beyond pixels and that is what you really want to build.

You’ll be a part of a small, tight-knit team where you’ll learn and adapt at a very rapid pace and become an integral part of our circus.
