Yacht Club looking to higher another programmer to help on a 'new 3D project'

A new dimension of fun

While Yacht Club is well-known for their adventures in the 2D realm, it seems they're ready to move into the third dimension.

The company has shared a job listing for a "Mid to Senior Gameplay Programmer" that will be working on something 3D. You can see the official description below.

Yacht Club Games is working on a new 3D project and is building out our 3D team (and custom engine) to complement our existing 2D team. We are on the lookout to hire a capable mid to senior level gameplay programmer with a desire to build great gameplay experiences in a small, team-centered environment!

Unfortunately there's no mention of what the project is. Could it be the 3D Shovel Knight game the team has shown interest in, or something else altogether? We'll just have to sit back and wait for a reveal.

"and is building out our 3D team (and custom engine) "

Yes! This is the best news of this entire post. No messing with Unity!

I don't mind if they use Unity...as long as they code it right and make the controls for whatever they make here tight.

I can only assume that this would be a low budget title. Wonder if Shovel Knight 3D is in the works...

Well they did mention Shovel Knight 64 a while ago, but not as something they were actually working on.
