Gearbox Software, developer of Borderlands and Aliens: Colonial Marines, is offering a unique opportunity to talented gamers with aspirations of actually designing games. Dubbed "COGS" ("Contractors of Gearbox Software"), this summer program will let selected applicants work alongside Gearbox staff on titles currently in production.
The company is seeking applicants who have designed levels, mods or gameplay, but who are not currently employed at a development studio. Submissions can be made via Gearbox's cogs.gearboxsoftware.com site and are being accepted through May 20. The program itself begins June 15, with the company stating that those who make it through may find themselves with an extended apprenticeship -- or even a full-time gig.
