God Speed!


Recent proceedings at Vigil & Relic have been well documented, and things such as this are never easy. Both companies have lost some serious talent, talent that others will benefit from.

So, in an attempt to aid those needing to find a new place, I thought I’d compile what I’ve found out there, from recruiters to people directly at companies.

Most of the information below was gathered from www.polycount.com (awesome site for artists), the rest was from linkedin & twitter.

I’m going to add to this page, as anything new comes up. Good luck everyone.

>> Vigil Games Work Fair <<

Vigil Games is planning a work fair in Austin for those affected, hopefully this will help you meet with people face to face.

When is it?

Thursday, April 5, 2012 – 10:00am – 2:00pm

Where is it?

River Place Country Club : 4207 River Place Blvd. Austin, Texas 78730

  1. To the developers at Relic/Vigil, If you’re interested in a full-time 2-3 month mobile game development gig (potentially long term) in Vancouver or at home, anywhere in the world with competitive compensation while you sort out your long-term plans, please contact me at DHmobilevancity@gmail.com for more information. We’re looking for 7-8 talented software developers, networking developers and one database developer. If you know of anyone that may be interested, I appreciate it if you send em my way. It’s primarily a full-time job gig, overtime is available as well and we are also considering part-time positions for certain specialized task. This project will net you decent earnings while you sort through your career plans. I prefer to work with developers from Vancouver, however it’s not necessary, feel free to contact me if you’re from Austin Texas or anywhere else in the world. Please keep in mind, although this is a short gig, if we like each other and development goes well you’re also looking at a competitive career alternative with decent competitive compensation. Thank you for your interest! I’d love to hear from you.

    Take care and best wishes.

    DHmobile.
