Studio Fizbin is an award-winning independent studio from Germany, with offices in Berlin and Ludwigsburg. We make compelling and hand-crafted games since 2011. Last year, we released “Minute of Islands” and “Say No! More” among other projects and released “The Inner World 1+2” before. Now, we are going forward on our biggest project yet and want you to join us.

While implementing reliable gameplay systems for your game designers you’ve always been eager to make sure that your architecture fits to your team's needs? Are you interested in stable workflows, code guidelines, and how code architecture can help your team to achieve exciting possibilities for everyone working on your project?

If that sounds like you, send us your application!
