Bladework Games is a new game studio building a brand new living, online, cooperative multiplayer IP for the PC first and cross platform future. We're creating a new take on the ARPG genre, focusing on exciting combat, meaningful cooperative play, and the creation of a truly fun gameplay experience.

We're looking for someone who wants to be part of the core foundation of Bladework Games. An animator who is passionate about bringing characters and combat to life. As a Senior Animator, you will create a diverse selection of game-related animation. You would be a great fit if you love playing games and enjoy the challenge of building a game from the early stages.

If this sounds appealing to you, we'd love to chat.
