Senior Game Designer - BitCraft Online
Clockwork Labs is seeking a creative and experienced Game Designer to join our team and help us bring BitCraft Online to life!
BitCraft is a MMO Sandbox game which puts the focus on crafting, building, and collaborating with other players through economies, instead of combat.
Moment to moment gameplay plays like a sandbox survival crafting game, but there is deep character progression like a traditional MMO. Its massively online nature also brings in similar large scale social gameplay, with a level of player agency rarely seen: every town and everything in it is player made and player run, player can shape and develop the world to suit them, player orchestrated trade and social politics will be key for organization.
