Red 5 with the Rebels

Author: will | Filed under: Cork, job search, video

Red 5 Studios are creating one heck of a First Person Shooter MMO. Oddly, a large portion of Red 5 Studio is made from former Blizzard employees. Guess who has their European headquarters in Cork.

Welcome to Cork Red 5 Studio.

Based on what the Extra Credits crew are saying, you are going to be a shining addition for Cork (for Browncoat shiny at least).

    +Jennifer Carey look a new console studio in shiny Cork long story short Shiny. Console, Shiny

  3. Jennifer Carey Says:

    You're trying to make it sound like shiny console games are a bad thing, but shiny is always good and consoles games aren't too bad either :P

  4. Alan O'Dea Says:

    :) I know your love of all things shiny + console and even I have been known to play games on all my shiny consoles. I contacted these guys to see what the skinny with jobs and what types of roles their looking for I'll let you know when I have a chat with them. Hows tricks?

  5. Jennifer Carey Says:

    Ah cool thanks. Not so bad, I'm still interning at Playfirst, I've got to start on some dev as well as testing so it's cool. Have a trip to Japan in a week or so which should be awesome. Hows things with you?

  6. Alan O'Dea Says:

    Groovy I'm very well thanks. The game is actually now a full game, 8bit art, html5 JS animation engine, boss fights,animations combos bonuses and magic and everything:) We're rolling out the next version for testing very soon so i'll definitely be in touch to get your feedback and opinion. I am off to vote so have a good trip to Japan and we can talk when your back. Best A

    Alan, is the game based off the vamp's empires or is this something else?

  8. Alan O'Dea Says:

    No new IP +Vampire Cities We're making proper games behind the check-in. We think Foursquare is cool but isn't really a game and definitely not fun. Imagine you can checkin and play full fun games at real world locations. Our technology works in browsers so you can check-in and play our location games on Faceebook, Google+, the browser on your PC, smartphone or tablet. Vampire Cities just happens to be the first game we're making on our platform.

    Do yo have to be in the actual location, or can you game the GPS to unlock things (I've "been" in Times Square by accident a few times, and earned a swarm badge on the other side of the city)

  10. Alan O'Dea Says:

    Actually no you don't need to be in the location to play the game. The concept is that you can check-in with your friends across any device or social network or browsers and have a lot more social, team and co-op gameplay in each location.
