Location: Anywhere - Looking for: Artists
Posted by Leviathaninteractive.com on Mar 1st, 2013
Leviathan Interactive is a startup development studio working on our first video game, a co-op ARPG codenamed Project Lodus. We are a passionate, tightly-knit group, looking to add to our highly collaborative team. Since our game is still in early development, this is a great opportunity to get in on a project you can help mold into something even more awesome.
As a concept artist, you will be working alongside the art director and other artists to craft an alluring cyberpunk/sci-fi/post-apocalyptic inspired world, original stylized characters and enemies, and a progressive loot system. We are looking for someone who can share in the artistic vision, providing as much creative input as anyone on the team, and is comfortable in the iterative process of early design.
Strong characters or environment illustration skills (both is a plus!)
Ability to create rapid rough iterations of concepts as well as final polished pieces
Shared passion for the project and gaming in general
Self-motivation to carry your weight in a small team
An actively creative voice that can work in collaboration with our shared vision
We are going to GDC in less than a month (March 27-29) and need more resources to pour into the demo and presentation materials we will be bringing with. Your work is needed in preparation of this date, but could extend beyond that if we mutually agree on it.
Project Lodus early development was successfully Kickstarted mid last year, but currently we are back to operating on passion alone. We are currently seeking funding and in talks with several potential partners and investors, so this position is unfortunately unpaid at the moment. We hope to be able to pay everyone (including ourselves) soon, but we cannot make any guarantees. We are looking for hobbyist or student-professionals who want to bolster their portfolios, get work experience, or just love the idea and would dedicate time when they have it. Living near us in LA/Ventura County California is a plus, but not required.
If this dream appeals to you and you’d like to know more, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with info on yourself, your skill set, your available time commitment, and either an attached portfolio or a link to one online. We’d love to share more about the project with you and hopefully share in enthusiasm for it.
Thank you, and we look forward to your submissions.
Art Director, Co-Founder
