Every good level tells a story - a treasured dream that a player can share with their friends. Stories like "Sooo... I forgot that fire spreads in this game? All those bombs I stacked up went off in my face, and it left me at one health. I was *shaking*." To the player, that experience was one of a kind, and 100% theirs. But their silent partner – the person who put that chemistry set in place next to a big, tempting button saying DO NOT TOUCH ... that was you.
Other times, the story of a level is that all the NPCs spawned inside the geometry and stacked up on each other endlessly, unable to reach anything and begging for the sweet release of death. That was you, too. You push the boundaries of what the game's scripting can do to make the first kind of story possible - without leaving too many of the second kind hidden in the walls.
Question is seeking a level designer for work on its current and future games. The position is paid, remote full-time work in a highly collaborative (though virtual!) environment. Previous multiplayer level design work is required.
Working at Question
Our goal, as a studio, is to be able to make games with people that like each other and will grow together as a team that gets stronger with each project.
Part of this is hiring the right people that can sustain a studio in this highly competitive market, and the other part is keeping these skilled employees happy with competitive salaries and benefits within an environment that nurtures autonomy, mastery, and purpose.
We are remotely distributed across North America, with our official headquarters in the San Francisco Bay area.
About Our Games
A Question game invites you to step outside the rules with us and build a new space together. A place between what exists on the screen, and what comes to life in your mind. Explore, experiment, and leave as many footprints as you like. Each experience is meant to move you, emotionally - but to embrace mystery as part of the human condition, stopping short of telling you what to think. To us, the magic of the medium is that it asks more than it tells. When we've done our jobs well, it feels like travel: challenging, at times funny - and open to lifelong interpretation.
