Game Graphic Production (Junior) ( Hamilton, ON ) :
Start Date: Jan 28, 2013.
Duration: 6 month contract.

We’re looking for someone to help create great looking mobile games, as well as supporting our existing games. This means knowing games fairly well and producing game imagery & graphics really well. Since there will be a lot of posing existing 3D models to create 2D images, the role requires a mix of graphic design & animation skills.

Depending upon your skills, perhaps we’ll also ask you to draw our new weekly Web Comic, Create new 3D Models, or “App Store” Icons for our Mobile games.

We are not looking for any other contractors at this point. If you, however, run a SciFi (or other) online community and want to set up an affiliate deal, please let us know.

These are unpaid educational placements. They require a commitment of at least 400 hours in office. We are always looking for quality intern candidates, although we tend to be fairly picky. If you are interested in this now, or in the future, drop us a line and we’ll see what we can work out:
AS3 (AIR/Flash) Mobile Game Developer Intern ( Hamilton, ON )

Graphic Production Intern ( Hamilton, ON )

If you have another game related skill, and looking for Hamilton-area work experience then contact us. It may work out.
