I've got a stupid question (I just can't find the answer) :
Are the jobs actually paid ?

I mean, I'd be very insterested to apply for one, but I just can't do it on my spare time :(

Only certain ones are.

We are looking to change this in the earlier half of 2011. Check out www.spiralgamestudios.com for more information and updates about that.
