Vanillaware Searching For A New Programmer

By Spencer . July 5, 2010 . 12:08pm

imageWe haven’t heard about Vanillaware, the developer of Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Odin Sphere, for awhile now. So, we poked around their website.


Sadly, there wasn’t news of any new sprite art side-scrolling action games, but Vanillaware is hiring. An update to recruitment page lists a job for a C++ programmer.


If you’re in Osaka, know C++, and speak Japanese you could land the job and work on whatever Vanillaware is secretly developing.

    Sweet! I should apply…

    …well, I actually live in America and only speak English, nor do I have any professional experience in game programming. So I guess it wouldn’t work out. :(

    I make 2D shmups with Game Maker 7 and once I memorized Katakana and Hiragana. Do I have a chance?

      Did you use plenty of code in your Game Maker 7 games? The language they used is a bit like C++ in structure, although is quite a bit simpler of course. Personally I can’t think of many development houses I’d rather work at than Vanillaware. Quite a fan of the art of George Kamitani and Shigatake. I only have basic Japanese skills though and don’t live in Osaka. :-/

        I can’t do nothing in GM without code. I think of learning C# and trying XNA.

    Darn, so I guess there were no updates or anything related to that “Three Graces” image from a while back? I was hoping that it really was a teaser for a new Vanillaware game…

    I tried to do programing but I was very bad…

    Just don’t let Ignition take care of the translation again. T_T
