    WORK AT FIREPROOF!

    We’re a team of 17 artists, designers and programmers who create high quality, much loved games, but usually release them 6-12 months later than we said we would. We’d like some help with that last part. We’re looking for a People, Process & Community Manager to join our team of talented but disorganised game developers, so if you enjoy bringing order to chaos, then read on! We encourage applications from a diverse selection of candidates to give us the best chance of finding the perfect match for this unique position with us at Fireproof Games.

    WHAT YOU’LL NEED:



    • A minimum of 3 years’ experience working in a production role within the games industry.

    • Exceptional organisational skills. Coordinating multiple projects, planning ahead and tracking progress need to be well within your abilities

    • Great communication skills. You’ll need to communicate with a variety of people both inside and outside the company, adjusting your style as appropriate

    • Flexibility. The role will be somewhat organic, and will include elements of Production, Office Management, Community Management and HR

    • Self-Motivated. You’ll be Fireproof Games’ first dedicated People, Process & Community Manager, with an opportunity to change how we work for the better. We’re not 100% sure how to do that, so you’ll need to bring ideas and be able to make them work

    • The opportunity to shape a great creative team into a well-oiled games delivery machine

    • Relaxed working environment in the centre of Guildford

    The Room Three - PC Update

    We get a lot of requests to make The Room Three for PC and really appreciate the enthusiasm for getting it out on Steam. We put a lot of work into getting the first two games up to PC-quality, so it’s great to see that people enjoyed them and are keen for more!

    As such we feel obliged to update you that a PC version of The Room Three is not in active development at the moment, however we do hope to get started on this in 2018. We're very busy putting the final touches to The Room: Old Sins right now, as we entirely rebuild & remake our games to be fit for PC, this requires a lot more time & effort than typical ports. So we’re not likely to have anything until the middle of next year at the earliest.

    We know it’s not the most exciting news to pass on, but be sure Room Three PC is not forgotten. When we get the project moving, we’ll update you all with more information.

    Thanks again for all the messages (we do read them all, eventually!) & support.

    Best wishes,
    Everyone at Fireproof Games.

    The Room: Old Sins

    RELEASE DATE NEWS.


    Back in February of this year we announced that we hoped to release The Room: Old Sins in ‘Late 2017’. And now here we are in October, with the end of the year rapidly approaching and lots of gameplay tweaking and graphics polishing still to do, we’ve made the difficult decision to delay the release until January.


    While it’s never a popular choice, we feel that it’s the best decision to spend more time refining the game to ensure it fulfils our vision for The Room series and lives up to the high expectations of our players.


    So the new release date for The Room: Old Sins on iPad & iPhone (iOS 10 and above) is January 25th 2018, followed by the Android release shortly afterwards. We can’t wait for you to play this latest entry in The Room series and hear what you think!


    We’ll be revealing more about The Room: Old Sins over the next few months before release and to get you started here is a gif from the beginning of the game…more will be unveiled soon!attic-lightning


    Thank you for your support and stay tuned for future updates.
