Job Description Calling All Artists
Are you a talented artist, or VFX artist, with a portfolio of very cool work that you have built up while working on other games, now looking for somewhere new to spread your wings and continue to build your skills? Or perhaps you’re a talented sketcher looking for your first job in the games industry? We are looking to grow our art team and want to hear from you if you love games and are up for the challenge of being part of a team that produces some really exciting work.

Required Experience

Our artists use Maya, Photoshop, Zbrush and Substance Designer/Substance Painter and so proficiency of using these, or similar software, is required for all roles.

If you are specifically interested in VFX art, we require: -

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills to work across the whole team to share VFX goals and make them reality.
  • The ability to help create and manage the pipeline, ensuring you can prioritise effectively and understand limitations.
  • The skills to render and animate FX that fit with game style and physical principals.
  • Have a deep understanding of modelling, texturing, lighting and particles.
  • Can identify FX issues and support fixing these.
  • Have excellent knowledge of optimisation techniques.


What you can expect from us
A small indie studio based in the heart of Guildford UK, our mission in life is to craft awesome games that will make our players cry rainbow tears of joy. Every member of our tight-knit team is an expert in their field, yet each person is also comfortable with working outside of their familiar skill sets on crazy, ambitious and above all, fun projects. Communication and collaboration are mega important to us; everyone in the team has a voice and the ability to help steer the direction of our games. We also offer:

  • The opportunity to continue to grow as an artist. We all turn our hands to many things and so if you want to work on concepts to modelling, or characters to environments or continue to specialise in VFX, you’ll have the opportunity to do it all here.
  • A team that values working with each other and the learning this offers us.
  • The chance to do some of your best work. Experienced or new to games, we want everyone who works with us to make their mark in creating some very cool stuff.


We offer competitive salary and a range of benefits including, Private Medical Insurance, Pension, Life Assurance and Critical Illness cover. We have also moved to our new Studio in central Guildford, offering a very nice working environment with plenty of free tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks!
