Archetype Entertainment is a new game studio in Austin, Texas led by industry veterans from BioWare and other AAA studios. Archetype is a division of Wizards of the Coast (Hasbro). We are building a development team with world-class talent to create a new science fiction universe for our first multiplatform roleplaying video game.
Our goal is to create the greatest story-driven roleplaying games in the world.
At Archetype, we believe there will always be a place for story-driven roleplaying games that put the player at the center of an epic personal narrative with impactful choices. We are building games that represent the diversity of our audience. We also believe that game studios should empower top developers and challenge them with ambitious projects that are shaped by a strong, clearly communicated creative vision.
We chose Austin because it is a great place to live and work. Austin is the capital of Texas and is a fast-growing city with a vibrant music scene, cosmopolitan culture, a world-class university (the University of Texas at Austin -- “Hook ‘em Horns!”), and scenic rolling hills. It was recently voted the #1 place to live in America for the third year in a row — based on affordability, job prospects, and quality of life.
We’re looking for an outstanding Lead Technical Artist to join us on an exciting unannounced science fiction game! You'll head up a team building the art tools and pipelines required for a AAA game based on the latest Unreal technology. As a leader you will partner with the Art Director to prioritize and architect the tools our cross-discipline artists will use to make our games.
As a developer you are a specialist in your field, combining artistic skill with technical know-how in programming or scripting. You bring a breadth of knowledge that ideally covers several of the artistic fields needed to build compelling visuals in engine. You understand the importance of art workflows and pipelines on the efficiency of an art team and understand emerging trends and technologies in video game content.
If you have experience both as an artist and technologist we'd love to tell you more about what we're working on!
