-Level Designer (a main focus right now!)
Level designers should have drawn work (hand or digital) of macro or micro scale level designs which factor in standard gaming conventions such as pathing, points of interest, mob spawns, elevation, framing, terrain features, quest potential, etc. Previous experience in a 3D engine (Unity, Unreal) is highly sought after. Map/level designers should expect to be trained in Unity to allow the implementation and editing of their designs. Please email [email protected] with examples of your work.
-VFX Artists (another crucial role we're looking to fill right now!)
VFX artists will primarily be in charge of creating and implementing spritesheet animations to be used for various player abilities and ambient world effects. This role will require a blending of traditional toon styled art creation and design with technical implementation in Unity (Shuriken knowledge is a HUGE plus!). If you enjoy creating particle based effects to add an extra kick of visual stimulation, this position is for you! Please email [email protected] with links to examples of your work.
To apply for the 2D team, please email [email protected] with a link to an online portfolio containing examples of your work.
Your portfolio should include:
- One or more textured models and texture sheets that you have created AND/OR your best environmental or architectural artwork.
- 3-5 Pieces of additional artwork that display good use of color, an ability to mimmick the art style of FiM, and good design sense.
- Any addtional works that you wish to include.
Art should be close to or of similar quality to the following works:
Textures and textured models:
Architecture and environments:
The 2D team lead would like to see plenty of examples of environmental art or textured 3D art, moreso than 2D character work or fan art. Applicants must understand the basics of color theory, be able to mimic the art style of the environments and buildings Legends of Equestria, and be able to create vector graphics. Please state how much time you are able to devote to Legends of Equestria, and remember that you will be expected to complete at least one texture per week. Access to programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or Flash is not necessary but would be very beneficial.
Legends of Equestria is looking for Human Resources specialists to be the glue of our game development process and help keep operations running smoothly and cleanly! If you are interested in becoming a part of our team and have skills in note-taking and maintaining updates, organization and databasing, and good communication skills all around, please contact [email protected] for further information on the application process.
Applicants for Human Resources must be at least 18 of years of age.
Potential programmers should be proficient in C# and the use of code to design working mechanics applicable to a 3D MMO environment. Experience and integration in Unity 3D is extremely helpful.
