  1. Architecting and refining the gameplay loop by improving integration of existing features to increase player engagement.
  2. Playtesting, conducting user playthroughs, A/B testing, and doing everything you can to find ways to improve user retention, especially around the initial player experience.
  3. Designing, testing, and iterating on gameplay features; Both through collaborating with developers on the team, and by implementing simpler parts of the feedback yourself through tuning data values.
  4. Contributing to the creation of design documentation, including game concepts and systems, gameplay mechanics, and interface designs.


You should take this job if you are:

  • Passionate about playing games.
  • Want to have visible, critical impact on a weekly basis.
  • Enjoy minimal process, and being responsible for deciding what you create every week.
  • Enjoy collaborating with other hard-working teammates.
  • Portfolio demonstrates game design skills.


The ideal candidate for this position will have:

  • A strong passion for and understanding of MMOs, building games, and social games.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and creativity.

  • Familiarity with game design software (Unity, Unreal Engine, etc.) is a plus

DreamWorld is the massive digital world where everyone creates together. Think Minecraft or Roblox, except one immersive social world.

Look at the software that has fundamentally changed how people live: Search (Google), Social Networks (Facebook), Ecommerce (Amazon). Now think of what will come in the next 25. One of these monumental shifts will be the pervasiveness of the Digital World, and it is our goal to create it.

We believe this Digital World will rise out of the medium that's had the seeds of it for a while, Gaming. So, we are building a massive Sandbox MMO, with the game focused on User Creation and Socializing. You can think of our initial goal as creating a successor to Minecraft and World of Warcraft.

Featured Game

A note from Work With Indies: DreamWorld was mired in controversy at the time of its Kickstarter in 2021. DreamWorld has since grown their team, launched their Early Access, and continued development. In addition to the criticisms, we urge you to watch this interview with their CEO in full as you consider applying for this role.

We have no opinion or additional information about the DreamWorld game or team, but wanted to provide the above links so you can perform your own research and diligence.
