Hi! We’re Hilltop Studios. We are an Indie Studio focused on narrative-forward games and interesting/compelling technology. We operate virtually, with team members in Canada, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil.
Hilltop is working on a Vertical Slice exploring the usage of an exciting unreleased/prototype controller for R&D. This slice will be a polished showcase of 20-30 minutes of gameplay, but won’t scale to a full game. If you’re comfortable working with early/conceptual stages of prototyping in development, but also love to ship polished, quality work – you’ll enjoy this project.
We’re looking for three people to join our Art Team as full-time contractors for 5 months (Dec 2022 - April 2022), with the possibility of extension on to other projects. This is a fully-remote position, and we are a fully-remote studio.

Applying & Role Details
Hilltop Studios has grown to a team of 10 and works in a thoughtful, balanced manner on games that we love. Our goal as a studio is to stay sustainable, happy, and making games for the long haul. We’re a fully virtual studio - with team members in Canada, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil.
For the next 12 months, we’re focused on delivering two projects: a 2D story-focused, narrative game; and this project. We’re purposefully selective about taking on additional work in order to maintain balance, and focus on quality as a studio. Our goal is to have a diverse, inclusive team. We’re looking for team members who add to our culture, rather than ‘fit into it’. We encourage applications from folks who are queer, trans, non-binary, people of colour, people with disabilities, parents, immigrants and identities traditionally underrepresented in the games industry.
As a team, we pride ourselves on having a flexible, family-friendly work schedule. We work hard to plan ahead and prevent ‘crunch’ before it occurs.
Hilltop was founded in 2021. We focus on building our own portfolio of story-focused games and selectively work with a forward-thinking/entrepreneurial brands to build new products and experiences that players love. We’re proud of our robust team of talented, experienced and passionate people who are poised to make some seriously fun games and enjoy working in a sustainable, reasonable manner.
