Jobs

Free Range Games is a 40+ person team that has worked together for the better part of two decades and has launched titles like Tony Hawk, Spider-man, Shrek, and Lord of the Rings. In late 2009, we started Free Range Games to bring video game quality to mobile and web by leveraging the latest wave of game engines and middleware and keeping our focus on gameplay and fun. We’ve developed Patterns, a world construction game; FreeFall Tournament, a third person shooter; and many mobile titles. Since that time, we’ve shifted to new technologies, like streaming games and XR, while also going back to high quality console and PC.
