Achimostawinan means “tell us a story” in Cree and that’s just what we intend to do at Achimostawinan Games! We are an Indigenous owned and fully remote video game studio (but our head office is located in Hamilton, ON!) We are a small but incredibly diverse team that puts team health and welfare first! Our mandate is to tell original Indigenous stories by Indigenous creators. Learn more about our project and company here at achimogames.ca. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. Being Indigenous-owned means we know the value of raising up marginalized voices. We welcome people of all ages, stories and backgrounds.
We are looking for an experienced Unreal Engine Developer (specializing in Blueprints) to help develop and build our upcoming cybernoir detective game Hill Agency.
Please Note: Due to funding restrictions, we are limited to hiring only those who can legally work in Canada.

Vision & Mission
Founder Meagan Byrne:
“I started Achimostawinan Games in 2016 after finding a sore lack of easily available Indigenously created video games or Indigenous-centered digital content. This became a further frustration when I realized that there were almost no Indigenously owned and operated tech companies or Indigenously owned digital game studios in North America. I saw this as an opportunity to fill a niche and serve an underserved market. As I developed my studio business plan, I realized that there were many groups and communities, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, that had a need for digital interactive expertise that was Indigenously-centered.”
About Hill Agency: PURITY & decay
Our newest game is Hill Agency: PURITY & decay. It’s a detective mystery game where you play as a tough as nails P.I. solving everything from petty crimes to global conspiracies all while exploring the various different worlds that make up North America of the future.
The year is 2762 and you’re, Meeygun Hill, a tough as nails P.I. working in the slums of one of the last major cities in North America. Life is all missing kids and cheating spouses until a dame barges in from the Risen-City and changes your life. Her sister has been murdered and the cops are useless. It’s up to you to find out who the real murderer is. Murdered sisters, mind wiping drugs and flying palaces, this case goes way farther than the banks of this one detective’s little slum in this indigenous cybernoir. A narrative detective game in the spirit of Oxenfree and The Shiva that lets you solve who did it.
