Posted by Epoch Games on
Epoch Games is a volunteer based, all-online, global game development team developing The Lays of Althas: Sundered Order (LoA:SO). We are looking for a talented Graphic Designer with previous 2D Game Art UI/UX design experience.
For full details, see our SmartRecruiters Ad:
In this volunteer position you will be asked to create a variety of high-quality 2D User Interface (UI) assets for the The Lays of Althas: Sundered Order (LoA:SO), such as a Heads-up Interface (HUD), in-game Menus and possibly the assistance of graphical design for promotional and/or web-related purposes. Past User Experience (UX) experience is recommended, but not required.
It is also recommended (but not required) that you have experience in developing motion graphics as well as experience using Unreal Engine 4 (UE4), particularly Canvas and/or Slate UI programming. UE4 is still a fairly new engine, so we are not expecting most applicants to have experience, but we do expect them to at least learn the basics.
Communication is key to a smooth and efficient pipeline. You must be able to communicate clearly and effectively with other team-members and not be afraid to ask should any problems arise. We are an English-speaking team, so English fluency is a must.
If you are comfortable with teaching, you may be called upon to aid the more junior members of the team in terms of UI, UX and/or Graphical Design.
Other duties include following team policies (given upon acceptance to the team) as well as attending meetings via Slack (our instant message program that we use to communicate).
This is a volunteer position, so no monetary compensation is being offered. At this time, we are having to rely upon free (or previously licensed) software. Please refer to the applications listed below for guidelines. We do not endorse piracy in any shape or form.
Please see the SmartRecruiters Ad and post a Resume, Portfolio or anything else showing off your work and telling us your experience.
