Salary Competitive

@ Pat The Head - August 1st 2022 to December 1st 2022 (4 months)


Since we developed our award-winning narrative game Journey of the Broken Circle, we've been busy with getting our new game (working title Winterby) up and running. 

Winterby is a feel-good 2D Snowboarding RPG in an isometric pixel-art style, where you can discover the world on your own terms. It is up to you to focus on your snowboarding skills, explore the town and the mountain or fulfil as many quests as possible. Through-out your journey, you meet quirky characters, learn about the beginnings of snowboarding and the Olympics and have a pancake on the piste.

We are looking for someone, for our office in central Copenhagen, who believes games can be different and lovable, and someone who is not afraid to try new things. We are a small team and you will take big part of building and shaping the game.

You will, in close cooperation with the game director, get to develop the mechanics of snowboarding into fun 2D pixel representations. You will be part of development all the way from ideas to a fully playable demo. You will put your fingerprint on everything from the story to the game feel.


Your main responsibilities are:

  • Develop new content Winterby - A Snowboarding RPG

  • Make new levels and gameplay mechanics

  • No crunch - people over deadlines

  • Our working language is English

  • We are in the middle of securing funding for the full production, and the position can be extended when the funding is raised. (first right for non time-limited contract)


Deadline and start:

The application deadline is July 15th, 2022, but we'll look at applications as they come in. 

We hope that you can start soon, but we will wait for the right candidate.
