Do you want to be a part of creating Pepper’s new adventures? Awesome!

We are looking for an animator to bring characters and buildings to life by creating animations that are characteristic and utilising the inherent limitations of LEGO Minifigures without bending or deforming parts. You will use our Blender rig to create animations based on prompts and references. Experience with rigging is nice, but not at all required.

In your application we would like to see samples that show good usage of movement, expression, artistic and technical skill. Despite this mainly being a 3D animation position, samples of 2D animation are welcome as well.

Why join Project Island?

Apply now and you might join an international team that is clicked together by a passion for LEGO Island, gaming, pizza, or all of the above! We are fully remote and volunteer-based creating this game together. While we have a process to select who joins the team, we don’t require a specific level of experience. Our team consists of both industry veterans and beginners without any game development experience, the passion and commitment are key factors we value the most.

For the project, tasks are available for you to work on async. We will help you to select things that you both like to make, and are fit to the time and skills you have available. Being on the team also gives you an opportunity to get and give feedback to improve your skills and contribute your brick to Project Island.
