Bump we are looking for a few level designers!

I am thinking about level designer position, but few questions first:
how many hours weekly you expect from level designer and at what time are those meetings?
Also do you have concept artist, or level designer should sketch what he needs?

Im sorry for getting back to you so late, we ask for 8 hours minimum, Sundays around 11 AM PST. They last a few hours. We have a division of concept artists and if its a brand new area we expect the level designer to plan it out typically from a top down make sure they are thinking of all the aspects. Do you have a discord?

Note: We are looking for a few Prop Modelers/ Level Designers currently!

Our Development team is looking for Environment Artist’s, Character modelers and a few animators check us out!

When are you guys planning to be done with the game?

Hey there, I am interested in the project, specifically the Level Designer role. May I ask, if and if so when you are hoping to see this project released?

By Summer so roughly Q3-Q4. Sorry for my late reply !
