Recruitment drive nears completion at Gusto Games

17th May 2010, Bloxham, Oxfordshire, UK - Off the back of the chart topping success of Ashes Cricket 2009 for Wii and the imminent release of Nat Geo Quiz! Wild Life, the Oxfordshire based independent developer, Gusto Games has recruited 11 new members of staff to reinforce its established development team.

Gusto was formed in 2003 and in 7 years 12 titles have been released in Europe and the U.S. Gusto continues to work alongside their publishing partners on multiple un-announced titles for 2010 that cover multiple genres.

“This year will see the release of four console and PC titles, which will be a remarkable accomplishment for Gusto. We have managed to attract some awesome talent to the studio enabling us to complete all of our 2010 titles on schedule as well as begin development on those earmarked for 2011. Our reputation for delivering quality titles on time and to budget strengthens our aptitude for expansion and therefore meet the demand of new opportunities, says Development Director, Steve Archer.”

“We’re very close to completing our current recruitment drive and have limited roles to fill in both programming and art, says Lisa Fantasia.” For further details on the positions open at Gusto Games, please visit the jobs page at www.gustogames.com

About Gusto Games:

Since the formation of Gusto Games in 2003, the company has gone from strength to strength building on its original goals to deliver quality gaming titles on time, within budget and across all leading gaming platforms. Gusto Games originally brought Eidos’ hugely successful Championship Manager franchise to the console and PSP platforms with all selling through at retail in impressive numbers.

Gusto Games has become one of Europe’s most respected development studios and this fact was underlined in 2005 when, amongst others, the studio was nominated for the“Best New European Studio of the Year” at the Develop’s Industry Excellence Awards. Building on that success Gusto also featured within Intent Media’s‘Develop 100’ in 2007.

Gusto has continued to evolve with the successful launch of the Global Play Golf simulator and skill-based game UTour golf that keeps the company at the forefront of the industry. Over the last 12 months, there has been a focus on developing family products such as the Nintendo Wii exclusive Ultimate I Spy, while also continuing its proven record of accomplishment in developing games within the sporting genre, with the recent chart topping success of Ashes Cricket 2009 for the Nintendo Wii.
