Games Workshop UK are looking to recruit experienced freelance game coders or coding groups to develop games for our touch screen machines.
You should have experience in games industry and maybe already developed casino games such as roulette and blackjack.
Touch screen machines are located in many places throughout the world but are more common in the UK and US. They are simply a Windows based PC with hardware such as coin acceptors connected through a I/O card.
You are not required to have any specialist hardware as we will provide a DLL and documentation which will emulate the machines responses so you can concentrate on the game code.
You will be required to show examples of previous work to ensure it is acceptable. We also require you to submit frequent reports via RAC and be available on IM such as Yahoo or MSN while you are working for us as communication is key.
If you think you have what it takes to join us then let us know ASAP... if you are accepted, then projects will be posted on RAC for you to complete.
