Life of a game programmer in Hatchlings

After one and a half year working as a part time game programmer in Hatchlings Games. Kuan finally upgraded to be a full time game programmer! It’s been 2 weeks since I started working full for Quasr without distraction from tedious assignments or boring test papers. These 2 weeks are…Awesome!

It just like my dream job. Hatchlings Games…

1, does not have compulsory morning working time. Programmer working time is from 2pm noon until 12am midnight. Some of the game designers even work overnight in the office so that they can use the early morning time for brainstorming and quiet debates.

2, does not have compulsory fixed attire. I can wear my favourite style – t-shirt + short pant + sandal. Personally, I feel bad about wearing formal. For me, it just decrease work efficiency.

3, does not have bad politics, because Hatchlings is a team :). Quasr earn, we earn. Quasr dead, we FIX!

4, has a harmonious and fun environment. Everyone is passionate about game development, close in age, love Quasr, are friendly, playful, have dinner together, and laugh together… I doubt this is common in the working world out there.

5, Is all about game development. Involving in game development had been my dream since young.

Here are some of the pictures I snapped in the office today.

Most of the hatchers bring their own laptop (limited space? good, everyone can talk!) I like this feeling, all work together, discuss and yell together.

This is my space, my 2 years old wife and girl friend’s head phone. Why headphone? Because I need music to steam my brain to think ( not because of the noisy office? no…of cause not…)

This guy with a soft toy in his hand is Nowing aka Quasr’s God (Because he create it). It’s common to see somebody playing with a toy in the office, since there are many of them (Sponsored by John :P)

 

Anyone felt excited or attracted after reading this? Hatchlings Games are still recruiting ­čśŤ

We still need a Web Designer

Over the past week, we have received many resumes for the programming positions in Hatchlings Games. We are talking seriously with them now. However, we still need to hire a full-time web designer. This person has to be someone with unimpeachable design sense. She has to be a game player too. She has to be someone who appreciates user interface design of games and the web both. Her design sense has to be modern (she gotta know what that means). This is because our web designer own the look and feel of Encephalon.

The web designer has to be an expert in web design, HTML/CSS and fluent in the discussion of usability issue. Her HTML is more well constructed than the Petronas KL Twin Tower.

She hates Microsoft-style and Friendster’s UI and always strive to beat the sh*t out of their apps.

If you are that person, please e-mail johntanslade@gmail.com.
