Game Art Director for our brand new game!

Scroll to content

Psst! We’re creating new magic. Interested in joining us building a new world of adventures? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone who wants to be a part of building a next-generation MMO from the ground up! 

We love horses and the community that has been built around the Star Stable Online universe, but we are ready to move out of our comfort zone into a new world of adventures…..without horses .

We are expanding our universe into a new product line and we’re looking for an Art Director to take the lead on this journey. As Art Director, you will take ownership for defining our art style and visual direction, as well as creating our Art Style Guide. Amazing, right?

The quest

We have a vision of the new game, but we need more than that. So this is where we hope you will create some magic together with us. 

As Art Director, we need you to help us build a world and the characters within it, to manage the art process and make sure it is well defined and aligned with our development process. You will be the role model and decision maker for the art, and establish tools to allow artists to create the best assets possible. 

To be successful, you need to have an in-depth understanding of art production and processes, as well as what it takes to lead a team of artists. You have experience from the games industry--ideally a mix of both 3D and 2D assets--and have worked with the full cycle from prototyping to shipping a game. You thrive in both setting vision and clarity as well as developing and creating. And of course you work well in an agile environment in a cross-functional team, communicating and providing feedback with ease. 

Since we are at the very beginning of this journey, we don’t know exactly what form the game will take. It will let players explore epic worlds, build connections with others, and express themselves creatively. We like stories, but we also think the most compelling stories are those the players tell themselves. Our flagship MMO Star Stable Online is in its 10th year of continuous updates with a community that continues to grow in size and passion. That’s our bar for success.

The mission for the team 

This new game is something totally different, so the team that builds it really needs to be daring and driven and have our values in the backpack. We all need to be good collaborators and communicators.

We know that we will try small and fail fast. We will be open to feedback and let our audience grow with us. We know when to ask for help and how to share our knowledge with others. And we do know that at this stage, perfection is the enemy of success. 

To help you during this journey you will have a whole company with many years of experience and support functions. You’ll join our Creative Director,  Producer, and Game Designer in shaping the vision and bringing this new product to life to delight new audiences. 

What you bring

It is important for us that we all share passion and excitement around ambitious games that grow in dialogue with their audience. This role requires you to have a pioneer mindset and enjoy experimenting and breaking new ground. 

Since our team is starting small, we need you to be self-driven and take ownership of your areas of expertise. The Art Director must see things from a holistic perspective - and then break down problems into something doable. You’ll help the team grow, serving as a leader who inspires and encourages others to bring their best to the workplace.

Moreover, you have experience in working in 3D space with programs like Maya/3DSMax/Zbrush/Blender and understand how to bring together a cohesive look and feel for a project. You hold the key to how our game will look, and are able to clearly communicate your vision outward to ensure we reach our destination together.
