Creating visually stunning gameplay experiences is one of our major goals and strengths. To achieve this we are using our proprietary engine which includes powerful particle editing tools. As a Visual FX Artist you’ll have a lot of control to express your vision, as our emitters and particles are fully scriptable and offer plenty of tools for uv manipulation, dissolving, distortion, bloom etc.

  • At least one shipped title in the gaming industry
  • 2+ years of experience as a Visual Effect Artist
  • Experience in rendering of fluid dynamics and other simulations for animated textures/meshes (any package)
  • Experience with shader development
  • Strong creative ability to visualize effects even with minimal concept art or direction

  • Foundation of traditional art skills like painting, drawing, sculpting, or animation

 

Your responsibilities are:

  • Design effects to reflect and communicate gameplay mechanisms
  • Maintain a consistent vfx art style throughout production
