As the VFX artist, you will drive a stylised approach to visual effects within their game, combining the vision of a “hand painted” style with the benefits of real-time lights, particle systems and shaders.

  • Create, implement VFX based upon the vision for the game 
  • Work with audio, artists and animators to develop and refine the VFX style 
  • Design and implement the visual communication language of the game
