JABII is a hybrid fighting game that combines physical play with gaming, through sensors and a companion app. We are looking for a passionate backend developer who wan't to help us develop a unique interactive experience. The device will be part of a larger gaming universe with rankings, tournaments and a community, so you’ll also be working on continuous add-ons, utilising the in-built sensors as we create some new cool 'battle controllers' for interactive gaming.
The game resembles a cross between fencing and boxing, and all punches and hits made by the players are registered and recorded by the app, meaning the fight can be shared on the social media, and all game stats can be seen on your player profile. The unique mechanical construction with springs and an built-in air cushion makes all hits feel like a pillow fight - you get all of the adrenaline, with none of the pain. See more here.
