    Spry Fox is looking for a lead engineer, experienced with working in Unity, to help us develop a new cozy game! Note: we intentionally keep our teams as small and as experienced as we can, while sticking to a 40 hour work week and avoiding crunch, because we believe small teams accomplish more and are more pleasant to be a part of. This means that you’ll definitely be rolling up your sleeves and writing code alongside all the other engineers at all times, but you’ll also be sharing your wisdom and helping solve our hardest technical problems on a team-wide basis.

    Position requirements. You must:

    • Have at least five full years of professional game development experience, and preferably more
    • Experience shipping at least one commercial games using Unity, and preferably more
    • Be very comfortable working remotely (we’re a virtual studio; everyone works from home!)
    • Speak and write fluently in English
    • Live in a US-adjacent timezone or be willing to work from 10am-2pm PST Monday through Thursday
    • Want to make the world a better place

    While not required, it would be nice if you also:

    • Have any backend (i.e. multiplayer/server) development experience
    • Have interests outside of game development
    • Have shipped several games in your professional career

    What are we offering?

    NOTE: We are no longer accepting applications for this position.

    We’re looking for a designer to help lead the team working on one of our original, cozy games. As a Game Designer at Spry Fox, you will plan, design, iterate and improve the player experience in our games. You’ll create new non-violent activities, events, quests, narrative moments and joyful secrets. You’ll plan new updates and help set the vision for the player’s long-term journey.

    For this position, we are requiring 4+ years of professional game design work experience on at least 1 commercially-shipped title. This is not a junior position.

    We welcome candidates from anywhere in the Americas, Europe and Africa (timezone-wise, these locations have proven workable for our studio in the past.)

    NOTE: This position has been filled. We are no longer hiring.

    In Spry Fox, we think of producers first and foremost as people who facilitate communication between other members of the team and make sure that everyone is on the same page. Producers also help identify exciting opportunities that the team might be overlooking as well as dangerous risks that might be going unappreciated. And last but not least, producers help ensure that we’re not dropping any important balls. Great communication and organizational skills, empathy for others, and an ability to remain and to spread calm are all highly appreciated in this position. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!

    Requirements (mandatory)

    • You’ve shipped at least one commercial video game as a producer.
    • Strong communication skills that will help you succeed in a remote team environment.
    • Well-developed empathy that helps you connect with your peers across disciplines, relate to our customers, and display mature conflict resolution.
    • You must live within three hours of the Pacific timezone.

    Hi Scouts!

    The major Fall update for Cozy Grove is now live!

    We had a few goals for this update: tackle some of the more challenging feature requests that the community has been asking for, add content to some of the systems that we think are currently underutilized in the game, add at least one major new activity, and last but not least, add a special Fall limited-time event!

    We are delighted to announce that Alphabear 2 is available worldwide as of today! 🙂

    The first Alphabear – a quirky English word puzzle game, for those of you who haven’t played it – was an award-winning and relatively popular game. It has been downloaded well over five million times. Our new sequel is bigger and better in every way. It has a full narrative, several new modes, a new Avatar system (yes, you can finally *be* a bear, not just play with bears), new dictionary tools (featuring Merriam-Webster), greatly enhanced “bear speech”, and more!

    We are pleased to announce that Alphabear: Hardcover Edition, the premium version of our award-winning English word puzzle game, is now available on Steam for PCs & Macs. The price is just $9.99 and we’re celebrating the launch with a 10% discount for those who buy it ASAP. 🙂

    The original version of Alphabear has been downloaded over four million times and has won numerous awards, including Google’s “Best Indie” award in 2016. This updated version of Alphabear has been enhanced and completely rebalanced. All free-to-play elements have been removed from the game and new features have been added, including:

    • An in-game dictionary (so you can discover what your more inventive words actually mean!)
    • A new “prestige” system, for people who complete the campaign and want to replay it at a higher difficulty level to continue challenging themselves.
    • New random daily boards you can play.

    In addition to the Google Play Award, Alphabear is Gamezebo’s best mobile game of 2015, and also received a Game Developers Choice Runner Up award for “Best Mobile Game” in 2015. We’ve been asked by thousands of you for a premium, less-grindy, pay-once version, and we hope this fits the bill!

    So what are you waiting for? Visit Steam now to take advantage of our launch discount! Happy bearaphrasing! 🙂
