And so the seasons have come a full circle, and with them this round of Frictional Fan Jams. All entries were wonderful and thrilling, but these ones were our favourites.
We have one more Frictional Fan Jam to hold to complete the seasons! We have done modding, and visual arts, but now it’s time for our writers to shine.
Over the last few weeks of spring we held another Frictional Fan Jam, the theme of the season being Spring and/or Rebirth. It yielded amazing works, but here are the winners we chose!
We are looking for an engine programmer. In this position you will have a major part in forming the engine used by our current and upcoming projects. You will also work closely with other members of the tech team and help artists, scripters and designers do their job more efficiently.
Spring is the time of rebirth, the nature waking up from hibernation – even if we are all stuck inside and can’t experience it. Well, what better way to spend the quarantine than participate in another Frictional Fan Jam?
This time we are focusing on visual arts, so get your pens, cameras and needles ready!
The winter isn’t over, but our Winter Fan Jam is! For those unfamiliar, we held a modding jam over December and January, prompting the modders to explore the themes of Winter and/or Hibernation.
At the beginning of 2010, Frictional Games was five guys who had made a mildly successful game, working off quickly dwindling resources.
At the end of the decade, Frictional Games had grown to be 25 people across two projects, supported by steady income from a cult hit and an indie darling.
Almost exactly two years ago I screamed as an email titled “Frictional Games: Job Offer”. I continued screaming as I called my mother to tell her the news. Half an hour later she sent me a follow-up text.
“I looked at the website you sent me. Are you sure it’s a real company? I’m worried.”
Since that day, my life has never known peace.
Winter is coming for us in the Northern Hemisphere. Get a hot drink, curl up under a blanket, and start up the HPL level editor – it’s time for Frictional’s Winter Modding Jam!
Duration: 11th of December until 20 January 2020
Medium: HPL engine modding
The autumn is getting cold, but our hearts have been warmed by the participation in the Frictional Fan Jam 2019! We would like to extend an equally warm “thank you” to everyone who participated. The outpour of love and creativity has been overwhelming!
