Moon Studios, the creators of Ori and the Blind Forest and the upcoming Ori and the Will of the Wisps, is hiring for a new title. This position is specifically hiring Senior Designers who will work with Moon Studios to “revolutionize the ARPG genre.” What this new ARPG will be is currently unknown to us, but Moon Studios’ track record does give hope for this promise. The title has no set release timeframe, but it will likely be a while considering Will of the Wisps is still in development.
In regards to the job listing itself, Moon Studios are looking for talented individuals who will help make this game the best it can be. The Senior Designers will work with some of the most talented individuals around the world to create a game at the level of or better than the Ori games. The designers will work remotely, similarly to all team members, and are accepting applications from all around the world. Otherwise, they’re looking for people who can work autonomously, want a voice in the project, can collaborate, and want to grow. The team will hold all-expense-paid retreats to better collaborate from time to time. What the team asks from the designers is for dedication, experience, passion, openness to challenges, and overall swell people. If you think you fit this description, you can find more details regarding the application process here.
For those applying, we wish you the best of luck in becoming part of a great team. If you haven’t heard of their flagship title Ori and the Blind Forest, it’s a Metroidvania platforming game created by Moon Studios. Ori is a white guardian spirit with the eyes and light of the Forest Spirit Tree. Following a catastrophic event, Ori must traverse the forest to restore life to a destroyed world. The game is cited as having a “beautiful open-world” with “awe-inspiring visuals,” and we can’t recommend the game enough. You can purchase it on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, or PC (on sale through Steam!).
