Help Wanted!

Totem Arts is a small group of passionate game developers who have a massive love for the Command & Conquer series and an even bigger love for Command & Conquer Renegade.

Our developers have gone on to work for industry giants, including EA, Crytek, DICE, Guerilla Games, and Jagex.

We are looking for driven developers to help us reach our ambitious goals of bringing C&C to the ground level. Together, our team created an award-winning single and multiplayer game, and we are currently working on an expansion: Firestorm. Since 2014, millions have played Renegade X, and we hope to hit even bigger milestones with Firestorm.

Do you think you have what it takes? If so, we are looking for people like you! We are currently seeking volunteers and freelancers.

What are we looking for? We do have specific needs, but we are always on the lookout for others with skillsets that we aren’t actively seeking.
