Text Logo: Binary Space. URL links to Binary Space website.

 

Creators of Zombie Outbreak SimulatorBinary Space, are on the lookout for a concept artist to join their team. Set to create a brand new zombie game, they are in need of an artistic individual to help shape the undead creations of the future.
Could it be you?

“This is the very start of this game, and so you’ll have complete freedom to come up with whatever you want, including experimenting with a handful of variations. Although a successor to Binary Space’s previous games, the new game won’t have the same style or game play, and so you won’t be constrained by those.”

– via Saxon Druce, Binary Space

The studio is based in Perth, Western Australia, but is suitable for remote applicants as well. For all the details on the job opportunity, check out the original announcement post on Binary Space’s website.
