Hello! My name is Jasson and I'm the lead developer of Siege Games, which released Crea on Steam in 2016. Siege Game's next title is AutoForge - a 2D automation exploration sandbox with a side-view perspective. In AutoForge players will build a huge factory while exploring unlocked regions of a procgen world. I have been working on AutoForge for nearly two years primarily by myself.

I am looking for a full-time pixel artist to bring the colorful and friendly world of AutoForge to life. This project is in a custom engine with many features to support the art pipeline including: Aseprite file support, graphics hot reloading, and the ability to quickly open art assets from within the game. My goal is to create a playable demo in time for Steam's Next Fest February 2023, and release Early Access shortly after. I’m looking for someone to be an enthusiastic and involved team member, not just someone who turns in artwork.

AutoForge had a previous artist who unfortunately had to leave the project due to personal reasons. There is existing artwork with an established artstyle. While the ideal candidate would be able to assume this art style and level of quality, I am willing to rework art to better fit another artist's style if desired.  See bottom of posting for examples.
