Senior UI/UX Designer 1939 GAMES / Helsinki / Reykjavik / remote

PUBLISHED: November 24, 2021

Join 1939 Games to work on Kards – The World War II Card Game1939 Games was founded by CCP (EVE Online) veterans, Ivar and Gudmundur Kristjansson, brothers with over 30 years of games industry experience between them. With a shared interest in collectible card games and WWII, the duo wanted a game that combined their passions. When they could not find one, they set out to make it themselves.

KARDS is that game, a digital CCG (collectible card game) that uses historical military units as inspiration for its cards. Fusing traditional card game elements with WWII strategy, it is an elegant, action-packed experience that stands apart within the genre.
