Add job Small indie team looks for a 2D animator at Mystic Games

Artists located Anywhere.

Posted by Mystic Games on

Dear artists,

Mystic Games is a small indie studio based in France, where a team of passionate gamers are working on their first game, Morphing. A game that started as a school project two years ago, but now aims at becoming a full-fledged game with its own universe.

Morphing is an 2D action-adventure platformer that takes place in a fantasy universe. In this game, the player will venture through a variety of levels, temples and ruins to achieve an ambitious quest : restore harmony and balance in the world. The gameplay resembles that of a MetroidVania, as the main character has the ability to switch between three different classes in order to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. The story includes various characters with their own designs, personalities and dialogues.

We need someone capable of animating character movements, enemy attacks and miscellaneous visual effects. In other words, all the required assets for a combat-based game. Sketches and concept animations can be provided if needed.

Having an animator in our team would be a huge help, not only for the artists but for the team as a whole. It would save us a ton of time and we would be able to release the game even sooner. Furthermore, there are no deadlines to the project, so we can take our time to polish every aspect of the game.


Missions and skills (not required but strongly recommended) :

- Prior experience in 2D animation

- Feel comfortable with the game's art style

- Create animations for the player, enemies, NPCs and visual effects in general

- Dedicate around 4 hours per week to the project and partake in monthly meetings (modifié)

(they will be made according to time-zones limitations)

- Be motivated and willing to give your opinion on every aspect of the game (any constructive feedback is welcome)

- Be willing to work with people from other countries (all our members have either a basic or strong level in English)

- Use Discord for communication and project coordination


In order for you to better understand how Morphing works, you might want to play this 20-minute demo. It's in French but it won't prevent your progression.
