The Gameplay Programming team at Splash Damage is responsible for developing a wide variety of fun and engaging gameplay features for our award winning multiplayer games.
We work closely with members of all other disciplines to craft the core experiences and features of the game. Through prototyping and iterating based on design and player feedback, we strive to create unforgettable and engaging encounters. We're responsible for ensuring features are extensible and tunable, and we aim to empower other disciplines to make the best content they can make. We do all this while maintaining a vigilant lookout for bugs, keeping the game stable and making sure that technical debt is minimised.
