At our Co-Op RPG Team, we are looking to create boundless adventures that bring people together. We believe that shared experiences with a diverse and engaged community is the backbone of a great game. Our goal is to create our game with our community, engaging them at each step of our development process, to ensure we are creating rich, vibrant worlds that gamers want to come back to day after day, week after week.
Our Co-Op RPG team is currently working on an unannounced, original AAA Co-Op RPG game and eagerly welcome those collaborating, testing, and iterating with our community, and bringing gamers together in an ever-changing world.  We are proud to be part of the ProbablyMonsters family of studios and we are currently looking for a world-class Technical Mission-Level Designer to join our New Co-op RPG Studio. This is an opportunity to join a small team early in development and lay the groundwork for how we build scripted assets. You will create and own scripting for multi-use systems across mission objectives, random events, and story moments.

Who Are You:

  • You are creative and have a passion for helping to craft gameplay and story elements that create amazing player experiences
  • You are a proficient scripter who understands technically what is needed to take ideas all the way through implementation

  • Collaborate closely with other disciplines to create and support assets for mission structures, encounters and events used across the game.
  • Prototype narrative-based gameplay elements within the engine to test ideas through an iterative process, and build the most successful into major content pieces.
  • Learn the ins and outs of the levels in our game along with all systems incorporated within them so you can jump into the levels to get work done.
  • Assist in aspects of level creation.
  • Find creative technical solutions to scripting challenges.
  • Document workflows that you created to help others be effective in their use.
  • Playtest the game and give candid notes on how we can improve it.
  • Participate in weekly team syncs to discuss the game holistically

  • A track record of level design, mission design and implementation in video games
  • Have experience building for Co-op or online multiplayer experiences
  • Experience with Blueprint in Unreal 4 Engine is a must
