We are currently working on an unannounced original PC/Console narrative-driven game and are looking for a 3D Animator to join our team. You’ll be a part of our small team of animators working together to bring the cast of our game to life. We’re looking for a fourth person to round out our existing animation crew and help us put the finishing touches on our game, creating lively, personality-filled keyframe animations for a cast of detailed characters! Your day-to-day will involve collaborating with the rest of the animation team to create new character animations that fit the existing style of the game and characters’ personalities, as well as cutscene work on various in-game cinematics.
The style of the game is a sort of restrainedly toony movement on high-detail characters - we need to support a narrative mix of humor and complete sincerity, so finding that balance is important. What we’re looking for more than anything is someone who can bring out the personality of a wildly differing cast of characters in small and memorable ways, without leaning too hard on genericizing animation cliches.
This is a full-time contract position lasting for 6 months with the possibility of extension afterward.
While this is a fully remote position, applicants will need to be available to work from 10am to 2pm PT in order to collaborate with coworkers.
Ivy Road is a new independent game development studio founded by Davey Wreden (The Stanley Parable, The Beginner's Guide) and supported by Annapurna Interactive. We strive to build a culture of people over projects, where our key output is a happy, creatively-fulfilled and cohesive team.
