We're hiring a Gameplay Engineer (Unreal Engine)!

November 23rd, 2023

We’re Qloud Games, an Australian-based indie studio with remote team members hailing from around the world. We’re developing Loftia, and we’re looking for a Gameplay & Systems Engineer (Unreal Engine) to join our growing studio.

Loftia is a cozy take on the MMO genre, where players farm, build, and contribute to the growth of a sustainable, solarpunk world. The game mixes the chill, relaxing atmosphere of existing titles such as Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing, with the social aspects of a massively multiplayer game. Our vision is to provide a space where players can discover a sense of belonging, work together with others in the community to build and grow a sustainable world, and inspire hope for the future.
