In 2010, Marek and the other founders of MADFINGER Games decided to leave the biggest game studio in the Czech Republic and start their own company. Seeing a bright future in mobile gaming, they took their years of experience working on AAA titles with the intent to bring the same level of quality to smaller screens. Now, after many successful games and tons of awards, MADFINGER is making the next big step and designing their newest game for PC.
What he finds great about the team is that it’s full of open-minded, creative, and passionate people that he loves interacting with. You wouldn’t find him in his office, but instead sitting and working with the coders and designers, so they can easily communicate and create great games together.
For Silvie, the biggest responsibility and mission is to serve the team and assure that everything goes smoothly. Planning the workflow, removing any roadblocks, coordinating all the teams and communicating with everybody, she saw MADFINGER as a trendsetter full of talented and intelligent people and, since joining the studio one year ago, she claims her already-high expectations were totally exceeded.
Spending most of her time running all around the studio and making sure that everyone is happy and heard, she values leadership, good communication, and the eagerness to learn and grow. What she cherishes the most are the people who she sees not just as colleagues but as a true family.
Ish has been working as an animator in MADFINGER for a little over two years now, and, over that time, he bonded with the rest of the team, mostly through food, beer and, of course, video games. He’s passionate about creating fun games by trying to unite all of the team’s ideas and making new connections while doing so.
The main tool of his work is MotionBuilder for creating keyframe animation, and he prefers to work at the studio, which he describes as showing him a new life after some rougher times. As an animator, he focuses on the visual aspects of life, especially body language, frequently using all that he observes in his work.
Being an industry veteran for more than eight years, Luisa joined MADFINGER two years ago, after moving to Brno, because it was exactly what she was looking for - small, talented, and with big ambitions. As a team leader, she values clear communication and calm, methodical, efficient work. She’s glad that her colleagues quickly became her friends and that they share the same passion and help each other in and out of work.
Since her job is very dynamic, there is no set routine for each day. Adapting to each case and constantly testing and retesting everything is crucial, but she loves that it never becomes stale, and everyone is always aiming high and constantly learning and improving themselves.
Before joining MADFINGER, Vladimir was impressed by one of their previous games, and so when looking for a new job, he decided to promptly apply. Working remotely at first, but eventually moving to Brno. He works as an AI engineer and likes games that are competitive and fair to all the players, designing the AI to be just like that. This fairness is also one of the things that he believes MADFINGER is all about.
Working right now as a part of a nine-person team, Vladimir mostly values the hunger for knowledge, curiosity, and responsibility of his colleagues.
