While some still look to the stars, social networks and video games have given us a chance to look to the digital realm, a third place. These frontiers, thus far, have been fun - a form of entertainment.
Darewise is a team of force multiplier game developers, united to prove we can go beyond entertainment by experiencing rich, creative and connected open world, multiplayer video games.
They’re ready to prove that these worlds can exist as a cooperative venture between company and community.
They are building proprietary technology that serves as the foundation for these open world experiences, pushing beyond the existing social networks and online games to connect people in new, meaningful ways. They share this desire with gamers around the world who are eager to participate in building these worlds both as a technological achievement and as active participants in the game itself.
The company is based in Paris and led by the creative vision of Brad Lansford (The Witcher 3), Bradley Jeansonne (Halo, Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead), Benjamin Charbit (Assassin’s Creed) and the technical direction of Samuel Kahn (The Division, CryEngine).
If you dream of pushing the boundaries of what a game can be, join their international team and start disrupting it all to offer unprecedented gaming experiences.
For a long time, the opportunity to create ground-breaking design and story-telling has been limited by the possibilities of the technology available. Now, we are in an unprecedented time where tech has finally caught up to our imagination.
At Darewise, we’re a team of passionate game developers, eager to push the boundaries of online gaming experiences like never before, and we need a World Designer who wants to develop something with purpose, style and execution.
Our world will be central to the overall gaming experience so your efforts will have a huge impact on the player as they break ground and explore the planet Corvus.
