Technical Game Designer

Free Range Games

Free Range Games grows games the old fashioned way: we don’t put our team in cages, we work distributedly, and we don’t use toxic work/life trade-offs. Some of our crafters have worked together from PS1 to PS5 and will tell you about carving games one triangle at a time from punch cards.

We are some of the folk behind Spider-man, Tony Hawk, Lord of the Rings, Twitch Sings, Oddworld, Shrek Super Slam, and dozens of mobile and web games. We believe every member of the team has a voice in what the game should be.

We prioritize community, family, and love-of-gaming over process, crunching, and TPS reports. And maybe that’s what you want too.

We are looking for a technical designer to join the team of an open world, mythological, next generation game. You will be in charge of where the rubber meets the road in terms of actualizing the creative vision with dynamic action into level and zone specifics. Your tools with be Unreal5, Blueprint, our state machine system, and occasionally some C++. You will work with co-developers to help implement your vision with opportunities to grow as a lead or master craftsman of design. You don't need to know UE already or have worked on an Open World or multiplayer game, but it will be best if you've done at least one of those things.

Responsibilities: 

  • Design encounters, missions, and quests according to the story.
  • Implement narrative, city life, and wildlife with vast amounts of mocap.
  • Implement gameplay systems and meta-game design.

Qualifications:

  • Experience with level and systems design
  • 3+ years working on mid-sized to large teams
  • Broad knowledge of current action adventure games
  • Ability to work with leads on a shared creative vision
  • Plus - experience on open world and/or mp games
  • Plus - shipped a game in Unreal
