We're looking for a talented and enthusiastic Writer / Media Liaison to join our team. This is a new position located in our Melbourne, Australia studio, due to the growth of the self-publishing side of our business and commencing ASAP.
Games studio Firemint today announced that it has acquired fellow Australian studio, Infinite Interactive. The move further boosts Firemint’s strength in designing and developing original games, while providing the Infinite Interactive team with a channel for independent publishing.
The success of Firemint's Flight Control afforded the Melbourne games developer the funds and the time to develop and polish Real Racing for the iPhone. Real Racing featured social connectivity and offered gamers the ability to upload their replays to youtube, functionality that had not appeared in handheld gaming yet. It took a years worth of development and was known to be one of the most expensive iPhone titles made at the time.
http://firemint.com/R2 - Real Racing 2 is coming on December 16, 2010. Featuring 30 officially licensed cars, 16 car grid and 16 player online races, and available for all generations of iPhone and iPod touch, Real Racing 2 is the most exhilarating handheld racing game!
It's not too often a game company opens up and reports on the current state of their studio and responds to any concerns relating to their titles. It's even more rarer for the CEO of the company to take on the duty, so it's a special treat to read a personal post from CEO and founder, Rob Murray, on the Firemint blog doing just that. On the plus side, it gives us a great chance to see some development details on their games.
