Final Thoughts

Even if you don’t have the longest resumé, we’d still love to hear from you. We are looking for candidates that like to solve problems in creative ways and who are good at communicating and collaborating. In our …experience, experience doesn’t guarantee those particular qualities.

A majority of Finji staff are from backgrounds under-represented in games, so even if you don't see yourself represented in the game industry at large, this might be a good place for you.


Finji is a hybrid game developer and publisher located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We develop our own original IP and publish games made by small teams from around the world. Our first original IP was Canabalt (2009) and our newest internal project is Usual June. Finji also published several award-winning titles, including I Was a Teenage Exocolonist, Tunic, Chicory: A Colorful Tale, Night in the Woods, and Wilmot's Warehouse.

We maintain a creative, collaborative, product-focused environment, where we rely on and can also mentor good communication. We deeply value our collaborators' time and are continually refining our development process to uphold a higher standard.

We will continue to rely on our 10+ years as a remote developer, coordinating our projects through Notion, Slack, and Trello. Our comfort with distributed development makes us especially good at supporting folks who want to travel and work from remote locations for part of the year. As Finji is based in the US Eastern Time Zone, we may ask collaborators from notably different regions to overlap part of their schedule with us in a regular or predictable way in order to maintain a good call routine.

Featured Game

Hang out, fight monsters, and discover your town’s darkest secrets in Usual June, a third person action game about summer break and the end of the world.

Take care of a group of travelers on a post-apocalyptic road-trip across the United States in Overland, a turn-based survival game. Fight scary creatures, rescue stranded survivors, and scavenge for supplies like fuel, first aid kits, and weapons. Decide where to go next, whether it’s upgrading this wrecked car, or rescuing that dog. Just remember, there are consequences for every action. Get ready for close calls, dramatic escapes, hard choices, arguing about whether or not that dog gets rescued, and the end of the world.

Escape the destruction of your city with just one button! Canabalt, the game that popularized the infinite runner genre is back with two-player mode and new challenges. Play any of the 8 new game modes with one or two players, dash across rooftops with four different runners, or just chase that high score in the classic futile race for survival.
