DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A HISTORICAL COMPUTER GAME? GAMUCATEX IS LOOKING FOR 1-3 FULL TIME OR PART-TIME INTERNS FROM HISTORY OR ARCHEOLOGY IN 2023.
GAMUCATEX is moving closer and closer to the completion of the alpha version of 'Project Tectonicus’, a historical computer game, which in its first edition deals with the Viking Age. We work hard to ensure that the game content is founded in history, so we are looking for 1-3 historians or archaeologists for a full semester internship dealing primarily with historical research for game development.
As an intern at Gamucatex, you will become part of the history department, where you will do in-depth research on all historical aspects, features, illustrations, etc. in the game. We offer an opportunity to translate your core expertise into communication in a concrete game product. In addition, you get a lot of development opportunities, and get the opportunity to try out several different parts of the game development process, as well as business development, marketing and other exciting tasks.
In addition to the work in the history department, you will also have the opportunity to get to know and perhaps collaborate with:
Marketing and SoMe content
Programming (in Unity)
ECTS-paying internship course
Concrete experience in translating your core expertise into business
Concrete experience with game development
Opportunity to get to know entrepreneurship and the startup world
Opportunity to work across several departments and gain insight into business operations
Unity with a large international team
That you are studying or have graduated from either history or archaeology
That you can work independently and are not afraid to throw yourself into new challenges
That you can communicate effortlessly in English both orally and in writing
It will also be an advantage, but not a requirement if you:
Have worked with Viking Age Scandinavia, England and/or the Frankish Empire through teaching, fieldwork, museum work or other.
Have prior knowledge about other Viking Age European or Mediterranean cultures such as Kyivan Rus, Byzantine/Eastern Roman Empire, or the Moors of the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa.
Are studying or have graduated at a degree at the Master's level
Have experience with communication tasks, especially funding applications
Have insight into the gaming world
Have an interest in entrepreneurship
Gamucatex is a startup indie game studio, which is in the process of developing its first title under the temporary name 'Project Tectonicus'. We are housed in two incubator office communities at KUA and CSE in Copenhagen Amager/Nørrebro and Frederiksberg. We have an international team of 20 people, many of whom are based abroad. We are therefore also open to remote or hybrid work but prefer that interns can show up in Copenhagen a few days a week depending on whether it is a full-time or part-time internship. The everyday language in the company is English.
An early version of the game can be found on itch.io: https://gamucatex.itch.io/tectonicus
