Level Designer – Contract

Makea Games is looking to appoint a highly talented contract-based level designer to join our journey to revolutionize the UGC-space of console/PC gaming.

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.

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!

You’ll get to use the Makea Editor to build levels in-game in Supermoves. You’ll be part of the team designing the levels, props, gameplay elements and more for the Makea Editor, so you’ll also have a big hand in shaping the content in the editor. The Makea Editor experience is similar to the editors in “Fallout 4”, “Fallout 76”, “Minecraft” or “Valheim”.

As a company, we are all about honest, open and collaborative spirit. Relaxed but driven is how we roll! We work mostly remotely with everyone having a high level of autonomy to decide when and how to work.Some of our workplace benefits include choosing where you work from, choosing your own work hours and an equipment budget.

Do note we are looking for experienced level designers that already have at least one shipped videogame title under their belts. We are not looking for junior talent for this role at this time.

Makea Games gives you the tools to make games. Just bring your imagination!
