Hey amazing people,

We are a team of passionate developers creating ethical mobile games. In 2020 we released a free-to-play game called Bubblesome – Clean the Ocean about the ocean pollution issue and now we are working on a 3D narrative driven puzzle about mental health and self-help – The Light Within.

We’re looking for a Technical Artist who works as a freelancer to join our small but dedicated crew and help us implement the visual style of the game.

Responsibilities:

  • Create and maintain the visual style of the game in Unity 3D
  • Set up the lighting for the levels
  • Create simple textures for environment
  • Create simple animations and VFX
  • Do minor adjustments to the level geometry (using Pro Builder)
  • Optimize graphics for mobile platforms

Required Qualifications:

  • Ability to identify and implement necessary steps to achieve a highly stylized look in Unity 3D
  • Having an artistic eye to spot ways of improving the overall visual quality of the game
  • Experience creating textures and setting up lighting in Unity 3D 
  • Familiarity with technical art development pipeline and best practice

Bonus points if you have experience:

  • Working with mobile games and optimizing performance for them
  • Writing bespoke shaders using ShaderGraph or HLSL
  • Using C# for tech art implementation
  • Animating in Unity 3D

Interested?

We would love to hear from you! Please, share with us your portfolio and rates along with a small introduction :) Let’s get to know each other. 

Pomsky Games

About Us

Pomsky Games is a small and independent game development studio based in Toronto, Canada. We make mobile games that address important social issues like environment pollution, mental health, inclusion etc. 

Our Values

  • Focus on Environment. We challenge the established game design practices of portraying the environment as something we could endlessly consume.
  • Collaboration. We create game mechanics that motivate players to collaborate rather than compete by offering them common goals to reach.
  • Zero violence. You would not be able to kill live beings in our games, but you would help and rescue; there is no animal abuse in anything we create.
  • Advocate for ethical lifestyle. We strive to communicate meaningful messages in our games that show players the importance of treating each other and the planet with care.

We are a crew of developers passionate about both the environment and video games. As people who want to make a difference, we couldn't ignore the ecological disaster that we are all witnessing nowadays, and we figured why not to raise those issues in our games? We believe we could make a difference offering to the market ethical and enjoyable games to play!

Our Latest Game - Bubblesome: Clean the Ocean

Bubblesome is a free-to-play mobile game that entices players to help save our planet's marine life by solving these important problems in a fun and entertaining way. Players can help clean the ocean from plastic pollution and save their underwater animal friends by popping colourful bubbles and solving satisfying puzzles.
