Do you want to create great games that also benefit society? We’re a UK-based, female-founded startup indie games company, and we released our first game in 2020. We have developed a prototype for an augmented reality board game that improves mental health. We’re looking for a mid-senior game developer to help us develop the prototype into a market-ready game, for which we have funding.

Play Well For Life creates games across a range of platforms to educate and train the skills people need to lead happier, healthier lives. We value diversity and strive to create an inclusive environment for all. We value people who enjoy autonomous working (remotely), whilst being able to work collaboratively with team members, and are passionate and enthusiastic about developing their skills and learning with and from others.

We’re fully remote and currently have strong design and art teams and are looking to strengthen our dev team. This project is funded until end of May, and there will be the potential to extend the contract beyond May.
