Job posting reveals Brisbane-based mobile gaming specialist Halfbrick planning a Sydney branch.
Although Halfbrick Studios has been around for 10 years, the breakthrough hit Fruit Ninja has brought the development house new levels of awareness. In light of recent success, the studio is now looking to expand its operations.
A recent listing on Australian developer hub Tsumea reveals that Halfbrick is looking to fill positions in three areas to start its new Sydney branch. The current listings include openings for gameplay programmers, artists, and designers.
Halfbrick has seen success on mobile phones with titles such as Fruit Ninja, Monster Dash, Age of Zombies, and last month's Jetpack Joyride. While primarily a mobile developer, the studio is not completely new to console development, having made Fruit Ninja Kinect earlier this year and produced the Halfbrick series of PSP Minis playable on the PlayStation 3.
The proliferation of Halfbrick's produce-slicing phenomenon continues with the recent announcement of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots, a tie-in with the Dreamworks Animation film hitting theaters next week.
