First Bite Games are looking for a concept and sprite artist to work on our upcoming title, Killing Boys, a dark comedy, supernatural LGBTQ+ visual novel. Killing Boys is currently in pre-production and we want someone to join the team for the hands-on creation of concept pieces to establish character design and communicate our vision, before moving on to sprite work when full production commences. You will be responsible for iterating on ideas whilst maintaining the overall vision of the game and feeding into the development of ideas within the team. We’re looking for an experienced artist with the ability to deliver a semi-realistic style with incredibly vibrant colors.

Killing Boys takes place in a modern setting with some futuristic elements, but will also include scenes set in the past. The game will have dark fantasy and romance elements. The player will step into the shoes of Eve, an immortal assassin cursed with the kiss of death, as she turns on her (literal) evil corporate overlords in an attempt to break free of her iron-clad contract. 

The game is tentatively rated Mature 17+ for strong language, sexual themes, dark humor, violence, and body horror/blood. Please only apply if you’re comfortable drawing within these themes.

- Open and receptive to feedback and working within a small, creative, ideas-driven team
