Who We Are
At Noodle Cat Games, we are redefining how games are made by weaving trust, creativity, and empathy into everything we do. Our dedicated team is building a vibrant new IP filled with color, mystery, danger, and excitement. We devote as much energy to fine-tuning our internal operations and work environment as we do to developing memorable experiences for our players. The best games are made by groups of people with diverse skills and experiences, and our small studio encourages individual creativity and contributions.

What We Offer
  • 8-hour days, 4-day work weeks, a methodology our team holds in high regard.

Who You Are
You are at the forefront of shaping player experiences. You understand how physical spaces influence combat, contribute to replayability, and help create memories. You’ve built levels for systemically driven games that provide a wide range of gameplay experiences. With your extensive knowledge of physical space and gameplay, you craft both the spaces players live in and help with the moment to moment gameplay experience overall. You have a knack for finding the perfect balance between challenge and fun, creating memorable gaming moments.

What You’ll Do
  • Directly responsible for the world and all related level design content, crafting both open areas and leveraging procedural content systems
  • Collaborate with the design team on elements of moment to moment gameplay and progression
  • Create gameplay content using Unreal Blueprints
  • Propose gameplay changes, features, and improvements
  • Incorporate feedback and ideas from the team
