Hi Group!

Its been exciting reading the commentaries on this list serve. Thanks for
letting me be a part of the group.

I wanted to let you all know that I'm looking for a Game/Level Designer
(immediately) and will be looking for many other team members over the next few
months. If you know of anyone who would be interested in being a part of a
dynamic team that is focused purely on developing video games for
rehabilitation- please send them my way.

Most urgently, we are looking for a Game Designer/Level Designer

The game we are working on is nearly completed in terms of overall design (just
needs a few tweaks here and there) but the levels need more work. The game is
built using Unity and will play on a tablet. We are a small (but growing) team
and want someone who is passionate about designing for folks with disabilities
and/or undergoing rehabilitation.

More specifically, the game is being developed for service members returning
from the GWOT with mild traumatic brain injury.

The position is full-time with benefits.

This is the notice I've put together- feel free to forward to talented
individuals


Game Designer

Does the word “Serious Games” or “Games for Health” intrigue you? Have you ever
wondered how you could give back to the men and women who have given so much for
our country? Are you interested in creating an innovative video game for service
members with mild brain injury? Are you interested in working with a dynamic
group of clinicians, neuroscientists, engineers and programmers who are
motivated to make games that help people?


Blue Marble Game Co is currently accepting applications for a very talented,
experienced, passionate game designer. This person should be fun to work with,
creative, organized, have excellent communication skills (verbal and written),
and demonstrate the ability to think way outside the box.


As the Designer, you will be responsible for completing the vision of the game,
designing puzzles and other mini games, level design, gameflow, communicate with
the team, receiving feedback input from the research team, participate in whole
group meetings, ensure production remains timely,


Qualifications

Required: Passion for games, passion for serious games, passion for
rehabilitation games, experience with Unity game engine, strong work ethic,
creative problem solver, multitasker, working knowledge of game production
pipeline. Bachelors degree or equivalent.

Other qualifications we are looking for are:
Experience educating team members in design/technical issues.
Experience with serious game development.
Experience with designing video games for rehabilitation. Thank you in advance
for your help with this!

Subject: [games_access] Our First SIG Meeting
Hey everyone,

It's now time for the first - of many - monthly SIG meetings. During these
meetings we can establish the short term SIG goals, discuss upcoming events to
ensure they get posted on the website, do general updates, discuss any
potential problems and discuss what topics we would like to see in the forums.

Our meeting will be through a group Skype conversation. This will allow me to
post a transcript on our website. Please add me on skype (tara.tefertiller) to
ensure you get to be a part of the meeting. If you don't have skype, you can
download it for free. If you have any questions please let me know.

We will be occur in 2 portions to accommodate the different time zones. You're
welcome to attend both, but showing up at just one would be great.


Our first meeting is going to be


January 31st - at 1 PM Eastern (New York) and 7:30PM Eastern

This will allow for people in Europe and North America to participate in the
evenings.


I can't wait to see you there!
