A TEAM WITH A VISION...

Lambda Wars is a game that was released on Steam in 2014, and has been in development since early 2008. With an ever-growing demand for new features and communication since the project was given a fresh direction since late 2016, we will be looking for an ever-increasing amount of volunteers to help us make this game what it's meant to be. Throughout time, we've accepted many people who were interested in displaying their skills, as they joined the development and did something great, even if it was just a little thing. Right now we are looking for people who share our vision and want to work with us, together, to make this free little mod into a great game!

Of course we can't list all positions we could possibly need here, so if you think you'd be a good addition to our team, send us an email! If you think we need a Marine Biologist, it's up to you to convince us, though! Find out more details at the bottom of this page to send an open application. Please keep in mind that we generally tend to take in people of age 16 or older.

  • An active and informal team structure that work together to make something great...
  • Professional sphere to develop and hone your own skills in whatever discipline you decide to apply for...
  • Developers who have years of experience developing this game, allowing you to have a proper orientation...
  • Exclusive looks into development progress and a voice in the direction we take...

What do we expect from you?

  • A professional attitude towards our players, and the ability to represent the game in an official capacity...
  • Progressive thinking to assist the game in moving forward, rather than growing stagnant...
  • Ability to work alone on certain tasks, as well as the ability to still work as a team...
