We are a social casino startup looking to begin prototype development for a line of unique casino games consisting of slots, blackjack, and multiplayer Hold’em poker. At this time, we are in need of a social/mobile game developer to build out a prototype for the Hold’em poker title, but future development (pending satisfactory completion of the poker prototype) could include development opportunities for slots and blackjack titles as well.
The Hold’em prototype is intended to support core gameplay and monetization only and will not require implementation of supporting features such as leaderboards or tourneys. It is important to note that this particular design calls for a *modified variant* of Hold’em poker with custom gameplay not commonly found in current Hold’em games. Thus, a simple reskinning of a previous poker game WILL NOT be sufficient (i.e. a custom poker engine/backend and frontend WILL be required). Functional specs with details regarding custom gameplay will be provided to you along with game design and UI mockups.
As this is a prototype, final artwork is not required but is a huge plus. The frontend client may be deployed over Facebook in Flash or HTML5, or natively on iOS.
At least 3 years iOS dev experience, or
At least 3 years Flash dev experience (or 1 to 2 years HTML5)
At least 3 years web server development experience
UI/UX design experience
Ability to provide rudimentary art assets
Fast turnaround (i.e. less than 3 to 4 weeks for prototype)
Prior gaming development a plus
FB game development a plus
Working knowledge or passion for poker/casino games a plus
