One Thumb prepares for Celtic Heroes expansion with key hires

One Thumb prepares for Celtic Heroes expansion with key hires
It was a good evening for the Celtic soccer team, which mirrors the recent performance of Scottish studio One Thumb Mobile.

The developer of iOS MMORPG Celtic Heroes is steadily building up its team.

It's added Paul Simon (Runescape, Lord of the Rings Online) as lead game designer; Dave Allsop (Blizzard, Wizards of the Coast) as concept artist; and Viktor Sághy (Most Wanted Entertainment, Eidos) as art director.

Water of life

More generally, the Glasgow outfit has also just relocated to a new central city office, providing it with the potential to triple its currently 14-strong headcount over the coming months.

So it's actively recruiting for a wide range of roles.

"We're looking for programmers, artists, project managers and designers with a passion for massively multiplayer online role playing games, a desire to break new ground and the ability to take the game in exciting new directions," commented MD Richard Hasinski.

"We're taking Celtic Heroes into new territory, in terms of content, quality and the platforms upon which it is available.

"To do this we are growing our team significantly. The new studio space gives us the opportunity to do just that."
