Hi, I'm a Game Developer


Hello Everyone,

I work for a AAA Gaming Studio called RocketWerkz as a Production Coordinator. We're based in Auckland, New Zealand and we use Jira and Confluence heavily in the development of our game.

The game we're developing is called Icarus and you can see the trailer here:

Happy to be here! Any other Game developers lurking here?


I'm not a games developer but I did live and work in Auckland for three years doing software development and sales for a telecoms infrastructure startup. I really miss the place...haven't been back in years. I wonder if my regular pub is still there?

Nice one, where are you based now?

I'm sure your Pub is still here haha especially if it's popular! Change is pretty slow here, although there's lots of construction around and some new big buildings, a lot of it still feels very much the same.

It was just at the end of Sale Street, at the entrance to the Vic Park market. We had a lot of 10-hour lunches there back in the day.

Just checked it out on Google Street View... apparently it's a restaurant called "dovoli" now.

I'm back in my hometown Boston (US) now after 15 years living around the world. Would love to get back to Auckers for a visit, though.

Hi there!

I'm not really a game developer, but as a hobby and for school I had some projects related to game development. I had the pleasure to create something in VR, some mobile games and some trial and error pc projects :)

Nothing was ever meant to be published though, so not really a game developer, but really really really interested in it. Sometimes I wonder whether I should've gone for the game developer education.

The game you're currently developing looks really promising! Very interested to see how it turns out once it launches.

If you ever need help with Jira/Confluence administration, let me know! I'm an Atlassian Expert/Team Lead for Brain² and I always wondered how game developing companies use Jira/Confluence/Bitbucket/Bamboo :D

Very cool, 

I think game development is a great career option these days as the industry just keep growing YOY, and it's Covid proof too ;)

I'd be happy to talk to you about any aspect to help give you a deeper understanding if you like! Feel free to email and ask any questions:

I appreciate you offering support, will keep you in mind. Can't think of any situation to require you now, but I'd be interested in hearing more about what exact problems you could solve if we did find ourselves struggling.

All the best!

Hey There! Funny story, I used to work for an MMO studio named Icarus. And now I'm a jira admin. Go figure. These days I mostly write for TTRPGs otherwise; miss it tho. 


Your game looks cool... welcome!

Haha funny, well there's lots of opportunity going around if it is something you do want to try pursuing again. All the best!
