Responsibilities

  • Leverage our core game mechanics and systems to design our hero move set and abilities for a 3rd person action-rpg game in a fantasy setting.
  • Alongside other team members implement and iterate these abilities from prototype to polish form.
  • While working closely with the other game designers, establish the metrics for our hero and enemy attacks (speed, timing and range) so they challenge the player fairly.
  • Work hand in hand with animators for responsive but satisfying and visually striking attacks.
  • Collaborate with our game director to implement character progression systems that feed the combat experience.
  • Partner with the rest of the gameplay team to ensure deep interaction between player abilities, environments, and enemies.

Requirements

  • 5+ years of experience as a game designer and taking games from concept to completion.
  • At least one shipped AAA or AA 3rd-person title with a melee and range combat focus in the PC or console space.
  • Comfortable in setting up and fine tuning the camera, the controls, and the abilities of a playable character.
  • Excellent organization and communication skills.
  • Experience using blueprints in Unreal Engine, a plus.
