Saarbrücken, DE

€2.500 per month

DigiTales Interactive is a tiny game development studio based in Saarbrücken, Germany. Our team has a diverse background in various disciplines including literature, music, marketing, pixel art, and programming. Our games employ established storytelling wisdom from various media to convey philosophical ideas and other thought-provoking subject matter without sacrificing fun and entertainment.

What we are looking for

  • Someone from any background, but preferably an EU citizen for paperwork reasons.
  • Experience in 2D pixel art. Animations are most important, but environments are also interesting.
  • Additional skills that might be helpful: 3D modeling, tech art, VFX.

Job details

  • Work on-site in Saarbrücken, Germany. No remote option, sorry!
  • Full-time position (40h) starting February 1st, 2022.
  • Core hours from 11-ish to 3-ish.
  • Permanent position, not just project-based.
  • Salary: €2.500 gross (about €1.700 net) for starters, plus all the usual German insurances and jazz.
  • You are one of two artists in a core team of six people.

Why work for DigiTales?

We do our best to make DigiTales a good place for everyone here. Jobs are varied and creative, and everyone has their own responsibilities. We sometimes play and/or party together, but we respect each other's boundaries. (We're not 'family', your family's your family!) Work hours are flexible. We managed to make our first game crunch-free and release it on time, let's make that a trend.

We offer many office amenities including two adorable pugs, a shared floor with some other cool indie devs (but our own office), and home office every Wednesday. Also, Saarbrücken is great! It's a vibrant, young, friendly, and relatively cheap city to live in. If you need to move, we'll help you find a place. We look forward to hearing from you!

Relevant to all positions

No matter which position you are interested in, it's a plus if any of the following applies to you. If you do not check some or even most of the boxes for a position (except for legal requirements) but feel like you are right for the job, please apply regardless! Your skills and personality are more important anyway.

  • Able to speak, read and write English and/or German more or less fluently.
  • Interest in video games, particularly adventures.
  • Not (too) allergic to dogs since our QA department consists of two pugs. 🐶🐶
  • Prior employment, experience, or interest in game dev, including different disciplines.
  • If you have a portfolio, work sample, or prior shipped project(s) to show off, that's the most interesting stuff you can send us! (Please avoid sending huge files via e-mail, though.)
  • We value a diversity of opinions and positions as much as any other type of diversity. However, some 'opinions' are dumb and wrong, and bigots don't have a place at DigiTales.
  • Please send your application exclusively to jobs@digitales.games.

Our First Game - Lacuna

A murder. A hack. A bombing. All it takes to plunge the solar system into war – unless you do something about it. Help CDI agent Neil Conrad make a string of increasingly difficult decisions in this modern dialog-driven adventure set in a gorgeous 2D sci-fi noir universe.
