Synergist Gaming is looking for a part-time Environmental Artist and volunteer programmer to help develop our upcoming 2-D sidescroller shooter and action platformer in the style of Metroidvania/Mega Man. The game, tentatively named Soul Keeper, follows a bounty hunter on a mission to avenge the death of his family by eradicating the dark, infectious enmity of Chaos Incarnate from the universe. If you have any personal inclination towards games of this type, we would count that as a bonus!
Environmental Artist: We are looking for an environmental artist to continue from where our previous artist left off. With an art style that fit with our designs, he left because he felt he wasn't prepared or ready to handle pixelation of his style from a more traditional painting method. As such, we will be looking for an artist who has a style close to our current aesthetic as well as someone who has some experience working with pixelation and art in a 16-bit or similar design. Payment will be negotiated with the director upon indication of interest.
Volunteer Programmer: We are looking for an individual who can help with miscellaneous needs for the game. This could include work with sprites, level creation, interactivity, game structure and more. This is currently unpaid work, and is primarily intended for individuals with some programming experience who are looking for the opportunity to lend their budding skills on a larger project outside of schooling or personal exploration.
The time schedule for a demo release for Soul Keeper is currently up in the air due to the setbacks with these open positions. With these part-time positions, flexibility will be encouraged. We hope you contact us to see if you'll be a fit for our game - one which hopefully you can be a welcome part of!
All questions and inquires about these two positions can be directed to:
Doug Grosser, CEO
Thank you, ladies and gents. We hope to hear from you soon!
Synergist Gaming: Making greatness - together.
