Founded by two veterans of the Walloon game industry, Maracas Studio is a Belgian, mostly remote studio that develop games that stand out from the crowd.

We aim to create unique and engaging game experiences with care and respect for our players, employees, partners, students...

Our work relationship is based on trust and transparency. We think that both the studio and the employees should benefit from that relation.

We strive to make the best experiences with our resources by focusing on what matters most. We deal with constraints without loosing our vision.

Additional Information

We work mostly in remote but we hold physical meetings two days each month in a coworking space in Charleroi, Belgium.

We remind you that by law internships cannot be paid in Belgium.

The project(s) we will have in production during the internship will depend on the funding we will get. Our first project, is a 3D open world adventure game that takes place in a vast fantasy world that you explore with a vehicle. The second project is a cooperative twin-stick shooter.
