London super startup The Secret Police is now hiring

Dream team

And that's just the start. With a team also boasting Bossa Studios co-founder and BAFTA-winning game designer Ric Moore, alongside Marvelous Games' Head of Europe Harry Holmwood, it's certainly an enviable line-up.

The Secret Police is curently looking to bolster its team in two disciplines - 2D Artists/Animators and Programmers - although it is unclear how many of each it is looking to hire.

The job listing also reveals some details of the studio's upcoming debut project: "You will be working on a brand new IP featuring a large variety of characters to collect and battle," it reads.

The listed ideal attributes for those applying for an artist role also notes that the candidate should "like JRPGs/fantasy games," giving further indication of the style and genre we can expect from the studio.
