Antimatter Games is Cornwall’s largest game development studio. We developed Rising Storm, PC Gamer’s ‘Multiplayer Game of the Year’, and the critically acclaimed sequel Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.  We are currently busy developing first-person tactical shooter ‘83 as well as working on a currently unannounced project. 

Working for Antimatter means working on exciting and innovative video games every day!  We have a strong company culture, where our employees are encouraged to have an excellent work-life balance. We want to support our team to become the best developers they can be, whatever their department.    

At Antimatter Games we believe you can have your cake and eat it! You shouldn’t have to live in the city smog or endure hours of expensive public transport to make great video games. This position is an exciting opportunity to live in one of the most beautiful, idyllic places by the sea in the UK – where the cost of living is far better than the city – and to be part of a talented team as we continue to grow and work on ambitious projects!

Falmouth is home to our studio. It has been voted one of the top places to live in the whole of the UK, loved for its vibrant arts & creative atmosphere, with lots of great events being held throughout the year.

On weekends and evenings, our team can be found cycling, surfing, kayaking, swimming, beachcombing, walking, enjoying live music or capturing beautiful sights by camera. On rainy days you might find a friendly game of Dungeons & Dragons or a book to read by the fireplace. Sometimes we also play video games!


Keep Calm and waka waka...
