Hello! We're looking to hire a 3D Lead Artist to join a small indie-team creating AUDION, a VR arcade game with musical elements; currently being development by Kasson Crooker (ex-Harmonix, Microsoft) and Ben Lane (Incode Games), and we are in the Oculus Start program.
Audion is a fast-paced arcade-style indie-game being developed for Meta Quest2/Rift, with potential to port to other VR platforms. We have a vertical slice of the game with core gameplay mechanics and 5 playable levels, and are now ready to bring a Lead Artist onto the team to craft and implement the game’s artistic vision.
The general look for the game will be based in abstract geometry, audio-reactive visuals, and clever use of shaders and visual effects. The game does not contain characters or complex environments -- think Geometry Wars in 3D/VR.
The project duration is 4-8 months depending on how your time is structured (est. 600-800 hours) and this is a contract, work-for-hire position. If you can dedicate all your time to the project... great! Want to work on the project steadily part-time but take a bit longer... also great!
To be transparent about the budget, this is game has a maximum art budget of $25K, broken up into 5 milestones and comes with a profit share of 15%. For those willing to lower the budget to $20K, the profit sharing would increase to 20%. The profit sharing kicks in after recoupables and post marketplace cut. Payment will be done via milestones which we will define with your involvement.
