Full Time
Seattle, WA
$30-40k base salary

Goodberry Games is a new game studio kicking up in Seattle, WA. We are writing RPGs about pirates, magical girls, and everything in between.

Goodberry Games has its roots in game jams, iterating rapidly on a bunch of smaller games. We've already published a dozen games using our own in-house game engine, tuned explicitly for turn-based tactics rpgs. It is battle-tested and ready for production. But before then, we need YOU!

Goodberry Games is a hybrid studio, supporting both in-person and online work. But for our earliest hires, we are strongly prioritizing anyone who is already local to Seattle or is willing to relocate to Seattle. In-person work is never mandatory, but sometimes is just the fastest way to solve problems.



  • $30k to $40k base annual salary
  • Profit Sharing options
  • 2 weeks of paid vacation, in addition to most major holidays
  • A badass office space here in Seattle
  • $50 monthly budget for the bus pass



  • Collaborate with our designers on the characters' narrative.
  • Assemble mood boards around the character's aesthetic.
  • Iteratively develop the character's visual design.
  • Render them into the final character portraits as in-game assets.
  • Occasionally assist in producing the character art for promotional materials.


Additional Details

  • This would be a full time commitment, running ~40 hours a week.
  • The ideal start date would be no later than Mid-July 2024.


Even if you don't feel you fully fit the qualifications, please apply! We want to nurture talent, and are happy to give you time to grow into this position. Just be sure to share 1 to 2 sentences about what area you feel you need improvement.


Required Qualifications

  • Strong design sense around color, shape, light, motion, and fashion
  • Solid illustration skills
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Experience collaborating across different disciplines
  • Experience with rapid iterations


Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with 2d animation

Goodberry Games

We aim to be a warm and cozy place, a place to create art you believe in with people you trust. Somewhere you can have ownership over your work and camaraderie with your team. We want to develop not only our games but ourselves. We want to be a stable and sustainable studio, operating for more than just a single game.

Featured Game

Farmageddon is a strategy rpg about farming in the post-apocalyptic desert wastelands.

The world has been sundered by the great cataclysm, reducing the environment to sand and silt and dust. How will we grow enough food to sustain our colony of survivors?

Don't lose hope just yet! With advances in "guerilla gardening," we can rapidly grow a seed into a fruitful harvest in just a day!! And it's totally safe! long as you don't lose your farm (or your farmers) to the endless waves of gigantic bugs.

Hero Tactics is a love letter to old school tactics rpgs.

Lead your motley party of heroes through a series of micro tactics battles. Each enemy encounter plays out like a puzzle. But if you can solve it, you'll recruit more heroes, learn new skills, and vanquish evil!

Equipped with only your camera, hike across the Pacific Northwest in search of the rarest cryptids in Cryptozootography.

Catch a good photo of a cryptid, and they'll follow you! But don't get too close: at night, they wildly attack anyone and everything around them, both friend and foe alike!
