Makea Games is looking to appoint a highly talented animator for contract-based work with us. As a 3D animator, you’ll be working closely with the art and code teams at Makea Games to provide realistic humanoid character animations for our characters. Our character rigs are on Unreal Engine 5 and on the Epic Skeleton.
We’re a game studio that works in a curious yet collaborative way – by creating tools to create games, then giving those tools to the players as well. Each of our title is a showcase of what you can do with the tools as well as being a fun game.
Our first title – Supermoves – is an exciting action sports videogame inspired by games like “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater”, “Mirror’s Edge” & “Fall Guys”. It is a massively multiplayer parkour world where players face each other in competition and pull off outrageous parkour supermoves. Players can make their own levels and challenges together in the powerful Makea Editor that allows anyone to make anything with just their controllers!
Makea Games gives you the tools to make games. Just bring your imagination.
