Game testers needed at Trendy Entertainment for “Dungeon Defenders”

Dungeon Defenders

Get ready to do this...over, and over, and over, and over...

Local game developer, Trendy Entertainment, is currently on the hunt for interns to test its next release, “Dungeon Defenders.”

Agapitus Lye, Trendy CEO, said he has eight spots open for anyone that’s willing to come in and play “Dungeon Defenders” as much as they possibly can for the next two weeks.

It’s a volunteer position, so college students can list it on their vitae as an internship, but that also means their will be no monetary compensation. However, Lye said they will be paying in pizza and soda, and anyone involved in the testing will have their name listed in the game’s credits.

To apply, simply contact Lye at augi.lye@TrendyEnt.com. Testing will take place at the Trendy offices in downtown Gainesville.
