As such, Affordance Studio is looking for a new teammate who’s proficient at front-end programming and has an eye for graphic design.

  • a workspace shared with two other independent video game studios where we regularly organize fun activities (i.e. pizza nights, game nights, etc.)
  • we are also working on establishing group insurance for retirement and healthcare for all employees as well as a 4-day work week

Our offices  are in the heart of the Mile-Ex neighborhood (intersection Beaubien and Parc) right near Little Italy. Affordance designs and develops both entertainment and learning games. We’ve made learning games like Spellers for Alloprof and we’re currently partnering on an entertainment game, Steamboat Billy, which was funded on both Kickstarter and the CMF. We share offices with two other game studios, so we do game jams together and hold regular game nights. You don’t have to love games to be on our team but you have to love having fun to join this tribe.
