Starchain Gazer

We are on a mission to free players from undesirable constraints coming from the part of today's game creators and allow users to take the wheel. By creating a game economy, we shift the definition of a successful title away from revenue towards real-world benefits for players, thus extending game longevity. Our vision is to be at the forefront of "Play & Earn" games through the implementation of blockchain as an underlying technology. We let gamers own game assets as they invest time and effort to gain power, skills, and ranking. By using game assets, gamers can make their value increase through leveling-up, crafting. Lend, borrow, sell and buy game assets. Gamers should be free to use their assets within a community of gamers in and outside the game itself.

Starchain Gazer is working on a 4X RTS [Hypercasualized] type game with the ambition to transition into an MMORPG. Our team is composed of 9 talents from DeFi Engineers, Game Designers, Full-Stack Developers, UX/UI Designers, Marketing & Community Manager...).

PS : We are funded and we are closing a new important fundraising round.

Position Duties

Art direction

The Game Design is a work in progress, but it is certain that the gameplay will offer players a top view or isometric view camera, such as League of Legends or Civilization. The scale is still to be specified but the character will obviously be recognizable and his role and assets clearly readable from this view.

Moreover, as the game is intended for both computers and smartphones, the characters should be relatively low-poly models. The concept arts will have to take this aspect into consideration
