Inzen Studio is looking to hire a Game Coder!
Inzen Studio is hiring!
Available position: Game Code Warrior (also known as Game Coder)
We are.. a band of 5 game developers who met at the Singapore-MIT Gambit Game Lab. We’d worked on a couple of kick-ass games before, ranging from a cult-hit fighting game that was almost violence perfected, to a popular vertical shooter involving some seriously enraged dots which you controlled by literally sketching out awesome attack formations.
Though we had a lot of fun at the time, they wanted to create more immersive play experiences.. especially ones involving Giant Mecha Gorillas! Enter Inzen Studio. Starting in Oct 2012, Inzen Studio is now a scrappy band of 6 fired up developers across Singapore, Uruguay and China.
Inzen draws inspiration from Asian entertainment throughout the years. Being big fans of manga, anime and the games that were released in the 90s, we cheered when Shōhoku faced off against Sannoh, we laughed when Ultraman forgot how to activate his powers and we felt awesome when we punched our Sega Saturn controllers like Segata Sanshiro.
(We also LOLed when monsters ran all over the screen in one episode of Takeshi’s Castle but that’s a whole other thing.)
#What we’re like to work with:
3 of us work out of an office in Somerset, Singapore and the rest of us + our extended team works completely online.
We do daily check-ins, we set weekly objectives and we try and play lots of board games.. and a bit of bball when we’re all in the same place together!
Balance is a big thing for us and this means we balance our creative freedom well with company sustainability.
#A word cloud of what inspires us/we play:
Crazy japanese game shows, Running Man, Star Control, Rhythm Heaven, Segata Sanshiro, Valve, Penny Arcade, Metal Gear Solid, Batman, Plague, Team Fortress, Bishi Bashi, ROTK, Mass Effect, DOTA, Robot Unicorn Attack and many moar.
