We’re delighted to welcome Boss Alien back as a Grads in Games Partner for the fourth year running. Boss Alien have always shared our mission to support graduates game developers entering the industry for the first time, and we’re glad they’ll be continuing their efforts this year.
The studio was formed in Brighton back in June 2011 by ex-employees of Black Rock Studio. Their 2012 debut title, CSR Racing, was a massive hit, generating over $12 million in its first month on App Stores alone. In 2013, Boss Alien continued their racing success with CSR Classics, which was praised for its standout attention to detail. While the company is now part of Natural Motion, and the larger Zynga family by extent, Boss Alien retain the freedom to work independently to create exciting new experiences for their loyal community.
The racing fanatics have taken on a number of talented developers from Search for a Star over the years, including our Rising Star Code winner for 2017. Challenge winner Alfred Norton flourished in Boss Alien’s internship programme and was able to hone his programming skills with the help of tailored feedback from his industry expert peers.
Boss Alien is now looking to hire a Graduate Programmer and Technical Artist and will be present at the Search for a Star Finals Day to talk to talented students about opportunities with the studio.
