We’re looking for a 3D artist to be a full-time core member of our small team. Join us on an exciting journey of visual storytelling unlike anything we’ve done before. You’ll be working with our art director/concept artist and development team to create environment, character, prop and other 3D art assets for use within the Unity game engine. You should be capable of managing the whole process from art creation to production ready assets in engine, including modeling, texturing, lighting, etc. We strive to create new types of gaming experiences that surprise and delight our players, and we hope to find someone that shares this same vision. Our studio is located in downtown Oklahoma City, but we are open to remote work as well.
