3D Artist – Full Time
Who we are
We are a tight-knit team, and are developing A Township Tale full time. A Township Tale is the industry leading VR MMO, which has a massive Discord community of 73 thousand people. We’ve launched on Quest on July 15, reaching #1 in Oculus Store charts, and we’re expanding the team to support our players and bring the game to new platforms.
Who we are looking for

What you’ll be doing
- Modelling assets for A Township Tale, for a range of different platforms.
- Implementing assets into Unity, and interacting with our custom tools.
