We seek a technical artist to join our team and help us create our vision for The Bog. The Bog is a suspenseful 2D survival horror game about a baby otter searching for his mom in the depths of a murky bog.
Our team currently consists of artist and director Lykke, and coder Bjørne. This is our first commercial game, and we want it to evoke emotions and be a meaningful experience for the player. We are located in Bergen, Norway, but mainly work remotely.
As the game hasn’t been funded yet, what we currently have to offer is a revshare deal. This means that you will be taking a risk in case the game never gets funded or completed. We hope we are able to transition to giving a salary in the near future. There are several grants in Norway that we aim to apply to over the coming months. We have enormous faith in the project, as does many industry professionals we have been consulting.
Our goal is to create a polished vertical slice by Spring 2021. This slice will then be used to apply for further funding of the project. The job is as of now part time, and working hours are flexible.
