Job Description

This is not your everyday 2D Game Artist job. Ever watched Indie Game the Movie? Were you inspired to take part into something that gave you a real sense of freedom and ownership, but felt that the risks involved were too extreme? Here’s your one-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of it without putting your house on the line.

We’re looking for a great artist to be the co-author of our next game. It's an indie game that needs one very talented 2D Game Artist behind it.

What’s on the table:

  • Competitive pay
  • Royalty package
  • The opportunity to be the artist behind a game that will be a massive commercial success and be enjoyed by tens of millions of players

  • Develop visual concepts and ideas
  • Contribute with artwork ideas toward communities and forums
  • Get involved in the look and feel of further projects including animation, and marketing assets
  • Reach your full potential with 2D and UI art for mobile games
  • You will be doing way more than just art. Your ideas and opinions will be highly valued as long as you can produce graphics and assets yourself. But that’s the fun part, right?
