Virtual Air Guitar Seeking Interns For 2 Games
Have you ever wanted to work on a Kinect game? Well, if you’ve got the qualifications, now’s your chance!

Virtual Air Guitar Company needs awesome interns for two Xbox One projects!
For Project A, we’re looking for a level/gameplay designer with some knowledge of 3D art. Your job is to use our internal level creation tools to build levels (including gameplay) and playtest them. Additionally, you will create static background scenery for levels. Being able to work efficiently in Unity is required. Knowledge of 3D production tools is recommended, though this is not a 3D modeling job. This is a 2-month project, beginning ASAP and ending 30.11.2016.
Project B needs a generalist artist to create background scenes and enemies for a 2D game with an epic rock attitude. You will primarily search for and use photographic material to create parallax backgrounds for levels inside Unity, with some illustration and 3D work on the side. Knowledge of Unity is required. This is a 4-5 month project, beginning ASAP and ending in February 2017.
These internships are primarily intended for students or recent graduates. You’ll get the chance to absorb knowledge of all aspects of an entire console game project from start to finish. Both interns will receive full credit in their respective products.
Send me an application (including mentions of any previous game projects you’ve participated in) and book an interview now!

From previous experience as both a sort of intern (work experience for school at Bullfrog, the precursor to the now sadly defunct Lionhead Studios) and a full-time developer (at the also unfortunately defunct Probe Entertainment) I can tell you that working on videogames and seeing the finished games being enjoyed by other gamers is very rewarding. Plus being an intern also helps you learn more about both the particular job you’re interning for and the industry in general. So if you have the skills I highly recommend it!
Are you planning on applying or have you already applied for an internship at Virtual Air Guitar Company? Or have you been an intern at any other videogame companies and have advice for other potential interns?
