Would you like to break new ground and contribute to a fresh project without the burdens of old legacy code? (We only have new legacy code!)
As a Gameplay programmer you’ll be joining our most ambitious project yet - Toca Days, a friendly multiplayer world for children celebrating the excitement and quirkiness of everyday life. A 3D world where kids will be able to play and explore in real time through their own avatar.
Since we’re breaking new ground there isn’t much pre-determined “this is how we do it” and you’ll be helping to lay that out. We are trying so many new, cool things on this project - building a multiplayer game from scratch, creating a realtime 3D playground with player avatars and world building. You will join during our early access/soft launch period where we gather as much input as possible from our users, the kids.
What you’ll be doing
You’ll work within a small feature team consisting of play designers, artists and other gameplay developers to create fun gameplay systems around everyday activities that feel good to play and interact with.
You’ll create features in such a way that artists and designers can easily create more content and tweak the look and feel as needed.
You’ll be working on a variety of features in order to get Toca Days ready for launch. You’ll work on things such as:
Developing UI interactions and UI-heavy game features
Building brand new game features, locations and ways to play
Creating tools for our developers
Exactly what of the above you’ll work on is up to you and your skills and experience.
Is this you?
You are an experienced developer who has shipped a few games already. You have previous experience working with bigger projects, in teams of 5-10 people.
You’re used to working with Unity and C# and have a great sense of what makes gameplay feel good for the end user. In our case the end users are kids, 7 to 14 year olds.
You believe in the power of play.
