Your understanding of gameplay and your ability to configure and tune level layouts, will work to bring the architecture, props, lighting, event triggers and AI scripting together into a fun, atmospheric experience. You will be using assets created by the artists and do not need texturing or modeling skills. You will work under direction of the Lead Designer.
