Life at Brightrock:

We’re a small, stable indie studio in the heart of Brighton, UK. We’ve been on a bit of a journey. Now we’re in the enviable position of being able to embark on our NEXT BIG THING. We’ve learned lots from making our highly-praised first game, War for the Overworld, and we’re taking those lessons forward into our new project.

You can be a part of this future.

We’re looking for people that live and breathe games like we do, that are willing to challenge tradition, and that have the drive and attention to detail needed to get a great game out the door. We want people that know their stuff, but who are always pushing to learn more – we learn things from each other every day, and each of us is deep diving into our specialties so we can get better. Being a specialist is one thing of course, but in a team this small you’ll also need to balance a fair few hats on that bonce of yours as well.

If you can do all that, well then maybe we ought to be having a chit-chat!

We pride ourselves on the strength of our core team, but we also work with a bunch of awesome freelancers.

About War for the Overworld

War for the Overworld is a Dungeon Management Game that employs your favourite aspects of the RTS and God Game genres. You play an all-powerful, malevolent Underlord, long banished to the Aether. With unrivalled dark power and an insatiable desire for bloody conquest, you will arise once more, and reclaim your realm!
