A little bit about LAI Games
LAI Games (www.laigames.com) is part of the LAI group that has been in the games business for over 50 years. The group is split into 3 entities: Timezone which operates over 200 Family Entertainment Centers in 7 countries in Australasia, Embed which is a leading worldwide supplier of revenue management systems and cashless payment systems. Lastly and most importantly LAI Games which is a world renown designer, developer, manufacturer and distributor or "out of home entertainment", we create games for the international market and have offices in Australia, Singapore, USA and UK and have distributors in 27 countries worldwide.
What we are doing
Currently LAI Games have a 30+ team of R&D staff based in Indonesia as part of our 10,000m2 factory. This team develops the game ideas and concepts and brings these concepts to reality. Now we are planning to strengthen the creative side of R&D and recruit a small team of highly creative ideas and design people that will be based in Brisbane Australia (2-3 people). This Creative Team would generate game ideas, create concepts, product designs and game/graphic art that can then be handed over to the Indonesian team for development. The Creative Team would also monitor the progress of the games as they are developed to make sure that they closely follow their original design principles.
This LAI Games creative team would be led, guided and mentored directly by the International Product Development Manager based in Brisbane and be part of a large business that has well over 100 years of game industry experience.
