Holla twelvians,

My studio looks to be growing in the quite near future and we're looking out for more talented game devs to join us here in Canberra. We're not in the position to make offers or start interviewing yet so don't ask me to pass on resumes just yet; however I am starting to gather a list of names to recommend once we do open the floodgates. We will be looking at junior and mid-level positions and yes, you would have to move to Canberra.

I'm not around here too often so i'm uncertain how many gamer devs are about, I recall Crysto and Salin dived head first into the industry and i'm hoping we've got a few more since then.

We're going to need a lot of arty people, game designery types and gameplay programmers, so if you're interested - yell out in this thread and I'll contact you when the time comes.

In case you don't know me or my studio - I'm Evyn and I work for 2k Australia and we're just wrapping up on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel right now.

Here is a video recently composed about our project and our studio and features me pretending to know what i'm doing when it comes to AI development:

Hope this is useful to some cool peeps.

As much as I'd love to, I'm not in a position to even begin dreaming about this.

Though I'm sure some others will want to know
- When does recruiting start?
- When does the job start?
- Salary range?
- Relocation allowance?

Good luck with the recruiting :)

PS: You should stay a while and listen, Lutzi!

This isn't a bad idea for recruiting. I should make a similar post for my place that is about to hire an extra 11 consultants. Although my jobs would be much less exciting than making games.

Jobs everywhere in Canberra!

You ask the right questions senor` Fork. I will do my best to answer them.

- Recruiting should start in the next couple of months, if not sooner.
- The job will be for an immediate start (or whenever you can get your butt over here)
- Salary range is dependant upon experience, but we pay above industry rates I believe for the positions, we also get bonuses based on completion of projects and for reaching sales targets.
- Relocation allowance is a month of your salary I think or 5k, either way around that mark.

I wish I could spend more time here, I've been pretty flat out getting this game out the door and between huge amounts of work, teaching circus skills to peoples, training and performing circus, learning guitar and french, exercising and spending time with my lady, I don't find myself with huge amounts of time to kill!

I like to stick my head in now and then and lurk however, the twelve group is still awesome.

This would have sounded pretty exciting to me about 5 years ago but I'd say any game design/development skills Fork and I had at one point have long since eroded and been replaced with various specialised IT focuses.

Crysto was certainly going strong in this at least a few years ago and there was someone else that posted about their game somewhere in here, so hopefully you get a bit of interest from this!

Fez was the other person if I recall correctly.

I would love to apply for something like this mister Lutzi. I will always remember you as being the very first raid leader i ever raided with that wasn't a complete retard when i joined a Twelve run pug group all those years ago.

Unfortunately I'm over qualified for the position, unless you want your game to turn into a 3000kW diesel engine.
