What you will be doing:
Working in Unity 2018 to create 3D environments for a realistic first person shooter game.
Creating original props (modelling, texturing, etc.) for a realistic modern setting. E.g. crates, tables, chairs, shelves, bottles, junk, signage, debris, etc.
Creating original environment pieces (walls, floors, pillars, doorways) with relatively simple geometry and mostly hard-surfaces.
Filling environments with props to create finished areas that feel like a real place.
Working remotely with a very small team of enthusiastic developers to create a fun and unique first person game!
(Optionally ) Kitbashing Asset Store assets, asset packs, etc.
(We value efficiency and intelligent asset re-use whenever possible.)
(Optionally ) Giving level design input and greyboxing new level concepts of your own to contribute to the overall game design.
(Optionally ) Interfacing with external art teams to increase production and create high-quality assets, if necessary.
Considerable experience working in the Unity Editor, creating prefabs, etc.
Understanding of performance optimization when developing environments.
(We are targeting mid-high end desktops, but may scale to consoles and low end PCs.)
Ability to follow a realistic PBR workflow with Unity's Standard shader or equivalent.
(We also can use decals for added detail.)
Understanding of version control.
(We use SVN for code and assets, but experience in Git etc. is equivalent. If this is a dealbreaker, we can teach this skill.)
Good to have:
Shipped one or more titles (or equivalent experience)
Understanding of procedurally generated and destructible environments
Understanding of lighting in Unity (baked/realtime/GI)
Ability to work autonomously and be self-directed on high level tasks
While we are making an FPS game for mature audiences, a sense of humour and creativity will help!
Level or game design experience. We'd love to hear your ideas!
About the project and team
We are a remote team based in Australia and Italy, and so communication will be done online through messaging apps and task tracking such as Trello. We also do voice calls (Skype, etc.) as required.
Normal Wholesome Games was founded by Andy Sum (Crossy Road and GAME OF THE YEAR 420BLAZEIT). There are currently multiple unannounced titles in development.
