Level Design exists at the crux between gaming psychology and art, representing the delicate balance between gameplay needs, narrative elements, intuitive world logic, and constant immersion.
We're looking for a senior LD who has walked the walk, and is looking to embrace the challenge of balancing our unique gameplay mechanics with the freedom of building levels within the mind.
Much of the work involves overhauling prototype levels where opportunities for improvement and inspiration for change are both in ample supply. Great ideas can still impact the overall game flow and narrative, so it's important to embrace design fundamentals but shed any tendency for adhering too closely to realism for realism's sake.
We're looking for an experienced designer who can hit the ground running and show their prowess through expert blocking and the organic extension of our aesthetics, themes, and in-world metaphors.
Our goal is to blend narrative-heavy moments with action-oriented exploration.
Strong candidates will receive additional materials to provide deeper context and a clearer picture of what is desired from this role.
Unity is our chosen engine, but experience in Unreal is also welcome. We'd prefer that you've shipped at least one title in the 3rd-person action adventure or action-platformer genre, but would consider a candidate with strong evidence of world-building in their portfolio. We look forward to hearing from you!
The role is remote in nature, available inside or outside the US, and begins with a 1-month contract of 10-20 hours per week to ascertain quality and output.
