Talented game developers got the opportunity to see inside LAI Games‘ new state-of-the-art studio in Singapore recently when it hosted a recruitment event.
The night featured a panel discussion lead by LAI Games vice-president of R&D, Shannon Perell. Lead game developer Liam Cary and special guest Jason Bogie from Timezone spoke about the state of the modern arcade industry. After questions from the floor, attendees were given a sneak preview of new games coming to market later this year and, of course, to play some of the company’s award-winning hits. They were also provided with dinner and drinks.
The new studio is located in the heart of Singapore’s tech hub, giving LAI games access to a strong local developer community. The recruitment night was co-hosted by the agency Wantedly, which connects talent with prospective employers.
