Archetype Entertainment is a new game studio in Austin, Texas led by industry veterans from BioWare and other AAA studios. Archetype is a division of Wizards of the Coast (Hasbro). We are building a development team with world-class talent to create a new science fiction universe for our first multiplatform roleplaying video game.

Our goal is to create the greatest story-driven roleplaying games in the world.

At Archetype, we believe there will always be a place for story-driven roleplaying games that put the player at the center of an epic personal narrative with impactful choices. We also believe that game studios should empower top developers and challenge them with ambitious projects that are shaped by a strong, clearly communicated creative vision.

We chose Austin because it is a great place to live and work. Austin is the capital of Texas and is a fast-growing city with a vibrant music scene, cosmopolitan culture, a world-class university (the University of Texas at Austin -- “Hook ‘em Horns!”), and scenic rolling hills. It was recently voted the #1 place to live in America for the third year in a row — based on affordability, job prospects, and quality of life.

Archetype Entertainment seeks a passionate, experienced, and collaborative Principal Gameplay/Combat Designer to help us build an outstanding game-of-the-year caliber RPG! In this role, you will be responsible for owning and building major gameplay systems and mechanics, driving them from concept all the way to ship!

The ideal candidate will have significant experience building outstanding gameplay content and systems in other AAA titles, understand the intricacies of how to make a player’s action feel great, and be excited about the opportunity to work on a new IP from the get-go.
