We are looking for a talented and motivated Environment Layout Artist/Designer to help us build our open world life sim game called Critter Cove. This person would be responsible for shaping the game world using assets provided to them. They’ll need an excellent eye for composition and layout in order to make environments that are fun, beautiful, and interesting to explore. This job is all about crafting the world space that the players will experience as they explore the game. This includes manipulating terrain, object placement, lighting adjustments, environmental VFX placement, etc.
The game is an open world life sim that takes place in an ocean covered world filled with scattered islands. The islands and the underwater areas would all fall under the purview of this job. The world has a very quirky and fun style to it so this person would need to be able to bring that out in the world’s environmental layouts.

What is Critter Cove?
AHOY, MATEYS! Critter Cove is an open world RPG set in a world of fantastical islands, crazy critters, and a world of exploration. You have been hired by the citizens of Critter Cove to help put their town on the map. Use your trusty salvage vessel and elite diving skills to find the resources needed from the ruins of an ancient civilization sunk beneath the wave and turn Critter Cove into a prosperous port town.
Here is a video that was made by a player during a small demo playtest we did a while back that showcases what Critter Cove is all about.
