Risk of Rain Dev Hopoo Games New Project Confirmed, Begins Hiring Process

Hopoo Games, the developers behind the much-acclaimed Risk of Rain series has confirmed a Hopoo games new project is underway, as the studio announced the launch of their brand new website, and with it comes a new job listing for an unannounced game.

The job listing comes from its official website, which is currently in the process of hiring new people. The first opportunity available is for one to be the lead pixel artist. 

Located in Seattle, Hopoo Games has been working on passion projects since 2012 including, Risk of Rain, DEADBOLT, and most recently Risk of Rain 2. We are looking for a Lead Pixel Artist to work either remotely or in Seattle on an upcoming unannounced project.

The position would be a work from home gig, for now, considering that the studio is enforcing stay at home due to COVID-19. 

In a blog post on the official Risk of Rain 2 Steam page, Hopoo confirmed that they are indeed working on another project and to stay tuned for upcoming news surrounding it. Perhaps we will see the announcement sometimes this month considering all the gaming events happening for the Summer Game Fest event. Whatever it is, it’s definitely something worth getting exciting over as the Risk of Rain series is easily one of the best rogue-like games out there. Definitely worth a play if you haven’t done so already. We’ll be sure to give an update once this title has been revealed by Hopoo Games.
