Making games that bring people together socially and emotionally

To apply for this job, you must be claiming Universal Credit and 16 to 24 years old as it is funded by the UK Kickstart scheme.

There’s too much loneliness in the world. Over here at startup studio Mind Feast Games we believe that gaming can bring people together. The new cooperative game we are working on helps people to feel connected to each other socially and emotionally. We’re soon to launch a public demo on PC and we’ll be building the game and growing the community at the same time. When ready we’ll release on PlayStation, Xbox and Switch as well.

Your role will be to help grow a community of players. We want to encourage a warm and supportive online community where people feel happy to join in, find people to play the game with and also create levels and mods and share them with the community.

Your daily tasks will include:

– Creating online posts to attract people to the game and to the community
– Managing our Discord server to make it a fun place where people want to stick around
– Developing a relationship with and understanding the community
– Adjusting your work based on feedback from the team
– Being the community voice when we are making plans so that our decisions are always good for the players

We work remotely from our respective homes so you can be based anywhere if you have internet access. We coordinate with each other via video calls, text chat and scheduling software. Working hours are flexible, one of our co-founders has young children so we understand the need to balance work and family life.
