It’s launch day! Joe Danger 2: The Movie is out for PS Vita today! And guess what? If you’re a Playstation Plus member you get 20% off its usual price of €7.99/£6.49/$10.99! Go get it!

No wait, actually listen to this first!

JD2 on PS Vita is a bumper version, the biggest yet (even though it’s also the smallest, what with being on a Vita)! That’s because it features some special guest appearances. From the lovely Tearaway we’ve got Atoi and Iota, and from LittleBigPlanet we’ve got Sackboy.

They join all nine of the mercs from Team Fortress 2 and Steve from Minecraft. These were part of the PC version, from where we’ve also brought across a special Minecraft stage for Movie Maker, JD2′s level editing mode.

Hours and hours of play await across 85 levels, including 15 from the Undead Movie Pack, which comes included in the Downloadable Tours section, plus a total of 35 playable characters.

Like JD on Vita, which we released back in September, JD2 runs at a super-smooth 60 frames-a-second, and features ghost downloads so you always have something to race against, online leaderboards and new PS Vita-tuned controls. Plus, you can create new levels in Movie Maker mode using touchscreen controls, and of course there’s a set of Trophies to win.

Now go get it! We really hope you like it :) Let us know what you think!

Sorry we’ve been quiet lately. We’ve been deep in preparation for something really special we’re going to be doing during PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas from December 6-7. We’re calling it A Night Under No Man’s Sky. Here’s Sean talking about it :)

A Night Under No Man’s Sky is going to pretty special, and not the sort of thing you usually get at game conventions. We would love for you to be there!

You can buy tickets for PlayStation Experience here.

**UPDATE!** This call is now closed! But keep an eye on our jobs page in case anything right for you comes up :)

Every now and then Hello Games likes to light a beacon in the sky, shout, “Assemble!” and see what happens. This is one of those times.

Hello Games is actually a super small company still, just a handful of people, but we like to make big, fun, colourful things. If that appeals and you are super-talented, then please get in touch! We like you already.

Freelance artist
This is a cool opportunity to work on a secret thing at Hello Games. It’s potentially a full time role, but we are happy for people to work offsite as its self-contained (and super exciting).

- You have an amazing portfolio of things you’ve been working on that will make our existing artists jelly (jealous)
- You like the idea of taking something from concept to completion, with your own vision
- You work really well to a brief and love feedback
- You can turn your hand to anything art-related, from concept to modelling, characters to environments. You are a swiss army artist (you don’t have to be Swiss)
- You love games

Potentially you are right now working at a large studio, and thinking “I’d love to try doing my own thing for a year” – this might be a cool opportunity for you too… be an indie, work in your pants, but you know get paid and all that.

Send us a mail to apply!

Graduate programmer!
This hopefully a nice opportunity for somebody looking for their first job in the games industry working on No Man’s Sky. You’ll be working in our studio in Guildford.

- You are the best programmer you know
- You have the best grades from a computer science or similar degree, and solid maths skills to at least A-Level, uh, level
- You have a solid understanding of C++
- You have some demos of things you’ve been working on in your spare time that are darn cool and show off your interests
- You love games

Send us a mail to apply!

Graphics/Engine Programmer
Do you love making things which are super pretty and run at silky smooth framerates? Would you like to do that on No Man’s Sky? Us too!

- You are the best programmer you know
- You have a couple of years experience of working on AAA console games
- You believe that the pursuit of sixty frames-per-second is man’s greatest endeavour
- You love games

Send us a mail to apply!

Please note!
Sorry, but we don’t take on interns or unpaid students. To apply, email us at jobs@hellogames.co.uk with the role you’re applying for in the subject line, or use the links above!

We like to remind people that we’re looking for super-talented people. We are such a small group that we often put up jobs ads and don’t hire anyone, unless we find the exact right people. We really hope you are the person.
