Vile Monarch, a hard rock games studio from Warsaw, is looking for someone who has great ideas (“Yay, finally something for me!”) and knows how to get shit done (“Oh, too bad…”). Currently, the Monarch leads about 40 minions, including some veterans (who worked on This War of Mine, Dying Light, The Witcher series or Hard West) and in the five years of his reign shipped 4 successful games, conquering PC, Android, iOS, PS4, Xbox One and Switch.
- Crush Your Enemies - multiplatform bite-sized RTS
- Oh...Sir!! The Insult Simulator - hit party game based on building absurd sentences
- Oh...Sir! Hollywood Roast - a spin-off in the world of film
- Weedcraft Inc - big and ambitious tycoon game about the marijuana industry
Vile Monarch feeds on creativity - we love making fresh things of different sizes, for different platforms, in different genres. We focus on compelling fantasies served through expertly designed game systems. Currently, we’re working on several new titles, including a beautiful and surprising casual game, an ambitious city builder, an unusual management game in a magical setting. We need a gameplay or system designer with experience in designing 3D games and complex systems. We need a man or a woman who will take full responsibility for large features: that means concept, communication with coders and artists, tests, balance, polish, potentially managing other designers.
- Experience in game design - finished projects and at least 3 years working on design positions
- Proficiency in system design (for example stuff related to economy, crafting, resource management or progression)
- Thorough knowledge of office tools, especially spreadsheets
- Empathy and understanding the audience, creating approachable, elegant mechanics
- Ability to briefly and precisely communicate ideas, tidiness and regime in documentation
- Discipline and self-reliance, organized work style
