We’re Ganymede Games, an independent, fully-remote game studio, and we’re looking for a VFX Artist to join our team. We're all passionate gamers with a unique mix of industry veterans (ex-Riot Games) and rookies. We're fun, serious about success and driven to create awesome experiences for players. 


About our work culture:

We're an inclusive team that values diversity. We don't value fancy titles. If you're looking to be the senior lead mother superior principal and VFX director, we're probably not the studio for you. We value your passion over your experience. We value humility, because players don't care what you did in the past, they want to be heard, engaged and their issues resolved. What players want, what would delight, surprise and exceed their expectations inform all our decisions.


As a VFX artist, you’ll create frame by frame character, environment, and UI visual effects for Xenotheria, our upcoming narrative-driven deckbuilder. 

We’re a lean, indie team of fifteen and looking for someone who can solve problems, take ownership, and drive work to completion. You can work remotely from anywhere in the world (our current team has members across the USA, Australia, Argentina, Scotland, Greece, Turkey and Georgia). 


What’s the mission?

  • Establish and maintain the overall VFX style
  • Design special effects that add atmosphere and depth to gameplay
  • Balance visual satisfaction, gameplay clarity, and performance constraints
  • Setup, implement, and troubleshoot the art assets into game with P4 and Unity
  • Working together with the rest of the game team to make Xenotheria the best RPG possible!


Must haves:

  • Proven experience creating frame by frame animations using the tool of your choice (Animate, Harmony, etc)
  • Experience implementing VFX into Unity and using Unity systems
  • Experienced colorist and well-versed in the use of motion, lighting, and color in the communication of VFX
  • Strong VFX fundamentals (timing, shape language, etc)
  • Highly entrepreneurial mindset ready to wear a lot of different hats as needed
  • Art portfolio that demonstrates both your creativity and craft as an artist
  • You love RPGs


Nice to haves:

  • Experience with another area of game art, (i.e. animation)
  • Shipped one video game from concept to completion
  • A love of the sci-fi genre


To apply:

  • Send us an email with your resume, cover letter, and VFX reel (online only)
  • We’ll take notice of a well-written cover letter that shows you did your homework on our studio and explains why you’re interested in joining our team. We’d love to hear about your favorite games, sci-fi movies/documentaries, and personal hobbies, so tell us about what gets you most passionate!
  • If we’re interested in moving forward with your application, we will contact you to continue the process, which will include an art test for finalists.
