The Apart of Me therapeutic game has been created to help young people who have experienced loss. It is now time to further develop and expand the game. Do you have with the skills and experience to help make this possible?
You will be working remotely on this project, but as part of our dedicated and passionate team of volunteers. We have specific goals in place and we hope that you will be able to help us to develop the game to achieve these to make the game more accessible and user friendly for those who are in need of this support.
Overview of the role:
Our project has been built by professional games studios and is now maintained by the Apart of Me team. It is currently using Unity 2019, our source code is stored in Github and we use Unity cloud build server to create our builds.
You will have experience working as a developer on professional-quality games using the unity framework or similar.
You will have a good understanding of "best practice" in game development and software development more generally. You will be a creative problem solver, happy to throw yourself at any technical challenge and able to work within the constraints of a small charity with big aspirations.
The Apart of Me therapeutic game was created over 2 years ago and has had over 75,000 downloads. We have had fantastic feedback but we know that we can reach more young people and improve the game we have. This is the core of our work, and will make a huge difference to our charity and the vulnerable youngsters playing and benefiting.
This game is completely unique. You will be involved in something new and very different, while using your existing skills. Your input will be very evident, and you will be able to build on your experience and have a real impact.
We have an amazing and dedicated team, and while you will need to be able to work remotely under your own steam, our Technical Manager and founder will be there for support and guidance.
