Yes, we are working on cool things!

Affordance Studio is a 18-person team leveraging creative game design to redefine what play means for museums, events, classrooms, businesses and more. We’ve made learning games like Spellers for Alloprof and we’re currently partnering on Rainbow Billy, an entertainment game in 2.5D, which was funded on both Kickstarter and the Canadian Media Fund.

About the project

Windigo is a narrative exploration video game drawing inspiration from the likes of Firewatch and Journey. The player plays two characters whose narratives intertwine like a “choose-your-own-adventure”. From a first-person point of view, the player crosses the territories of 17th century Canada, and discovers two completely different perspectives that reflect the respective POV of our two protagonists on their environment and their adventures. Their personal quests intersect as they must traverse the wild and hostile lands through the seasons, where cold winter is imminent … and the Windigo lurks.

To complete this project, Affordance Studio is looking for a new teammate who’s proficient at implementing gameplay system in Unreal. Your job will be to assist the development team throughout the production pipeline.
