> Description <

Want to join a thriving indie game development company working on their first big project? We are in need of one more team member - someone who knows how to draw both backgrounds and tile sets (think of a platformer) with some skill. Students and fresh graduates are preferred! As this is a remote position, you will be required to be online relatively often; we use Discord for short and quick communications and meetings and Asana for task management.

> Who this is for <

>> Candidates looking to develop environment art for the next big indie game.
>> Candidates who are active on the internet and are responsive!
>> Candidates not looking for a gig for cash, but to join a team of amazing people around the US (so far)
>> Payment Structure: Reduced flat fee for each completed work (final) along with a portion of either profit or revenue.

> Responsibilities <
> Draw backgrounds (in layers) for an in-development platformer game. Backgrounds should consist of Mario-style backgrounds (left to right, x tiling), Vertical backgrounds (like a tower, y tiling), and Open backgrounds (large, x/y tiling backgrounds).

>> Art style will be similar to a modernized version of Ukiyo-e fused with Fire Emblem.

>> Draw tile sets for an in-development platformer game. Tile sets should follow the 16 set that GameMaker Studio has for auto tiling. Search it up for more details; it should not be too difficult to grasp. Slight Japanese-style preferred.

>> Participate in meetings with members for developing multiple aspects of the game.

Bonus: If we like you, there is a high likelihood that you will be able to contribute to plot development and level design.

> Passion Points <
This is a relatively urgent position, so we have no time to waste.
Do not waste your time applying to this if you:
>> Do not have the passion to develop art for a game.
>> Do not want to participate in meetings or be active.
>> Are completely unfamiliar with any kind of Japanese-styled art.
>> Are only looking for a "job" to work and make "money." Money is included in this deal.
>> Have zero experience with tile sets and do not want to learn how to draw them.

You will definitely want to apply to this if you:
>> Love Japanese culture and/or the language and want to learn more about it.
>> Love playing platformer games.
>> Love games with a dark, serious story (Danganronpa, SMT, some JRPGs)

We are not usually this strict about application guidelines, but it is only to help narrow down candidates at the fastest rate possible.
