They were in Lunenberg, now they moved to a nice part of Halifax.


Huh, my parents live in Lunenburg, and I was just there a couple of months ago. So was HB Studios... I'm pretty sure... Anyway, just noticed this, thought I'd throw my 2 cents in! Cheers!

Gearbox is specifically hiring LDs right now for anyone who is interested. Environment artists too.

Best bet is to check out http://www.gamedevmap.com/ and then fire out an email to the companies asking.

That's a good website, thanks for sharing.

However there are none on there that are like a company, the one on there look like it has gone out of business. No industry for it in Wales really, which is a pity.

So Rockstar North does work experience? If that is correct, I'll save up some money to go there next year.

Is that correct though?

Just found out that Team Bondi is based in Sydney and has a branch like 20 minutes drive from where i live! And they offer internships to university students. I was afraid I'd have to travel to the US or Europe to get a job in the game industry. Another 4 years of high school, 3 years of university and I'm set for an internship.

They went bankrupt, and received poor press for their boss keeping them on for more hours without receiving any pay, as well as me hearing that he was a c*nt to his employees.

The Bondi employees were apparently offered jobs at several R* studios, including North.

Someone should have a go at DDoS attack on their site, since the studio is dead.

People who use DDoS attacks should be shot.
