Part Time

We're looking for a 3D Character Artist to work on our puzzle heist adventure game, Schrodinger's Cat Burglar!

The game stars Mittens, a cat burglar who gains incredible quantum powers, and is set in an expansive scientific research facility.  Mittens is supported by her sidekick Lazy Susan, a tech-wiz hedgehog, and on her mission she will encounter a further few mysterious characters...

Mittens herself is modeled, but there are a few other animal characters to create, as well as a few robot characters.  The art requirements include modeling and texturing.  Skinning to joints would be a bonus.

The art style target is textured, realistic but not overworked - more higher-resolution MGS2 and less KillZone.  More colourful and sci-fi, but not quite as cartoony as Ratchet and Clank.

Art fidelity is for a PC game that can be ported to Nintendo Switch.

Additional Details:

  • Experience required is for at least one released title.
  • This is a part time role - hours are flexible.  
  • Rates are negotiable.

About Schrodinger's Cat Burglar

Test your problem solving skills in devious puzzles, avoid detection by security robots and infiltrate top secret laboratories as you discover the truth behind an earth-shaking conspiracy.

*Funded by Astra Games.
