Dear Hiring Manager,

I'm writing to express my interest in the gameplay engineer position at Supergiant Games. Throughout the course of obtaining my degree, I've worked on game projects of varying styles and genres across multiple game engines. I'm seeking an opportunity where I can grow and specialize under skilled mentors whose backgrounds reflect the ability to develop games with a variety, polish and passion to match my own. I've always been fascinated by your studio's ability to change genre with each new game released while still retaining the unique identity that has brought them all to life.

As per your description, I have a wide range of competencies in programming languages, including C++ and C#, and am extensively familiar with the Lua scripting language. My prior leadership experience has enabled me to develop strong communication skills and respond well to feedback and direction, while also empowering me to work under my own direction. I am an avid and eclectic player, with interests in games of many genres, styles and generations. I am especially fond of roguelikes with diverse abilities and playstyles, with your studio's Hades being one I've spent an immense amount of time with.

I believe my commitment to building immersive, engaging game experiences is an excellent fit for your studio. Similarly, the small, collaborative team environment of your studio could be the perfect environment for me to develop my skills and learn from the incredible detail and care that makes your games so special. Thank you for reviewing my application, and I would love to learn more about this opportunity.

Christopher Toth
