Making Games As a Team

Making Games As a Team

I used to work as a designer for console games, mostly RPGs and action genre titles. When I had my job interview with AIDIS, the CEO told me right there and then, "Okay, let's work together!" and within an hour I received the job offer via email. I was really astounded at how quickly I was accepted onto the team! Now I work on game backgrounds, primarily. I draw up the image boards and then create 3D CG artwork based on them. Besides creating model data, I also take care of lighting and various effects and filters.
In addition to those responsibilities, as project manager I resolve any issues within my team, look after the staff's needs, and generally try to create a nice work environment for everyone.

What's really great about AIDIS is that anyone is welcome to present their ideas and suggestions, no matter what their job is. I don't have to keep my mouth shut about things other than design. My opinions on other aspects of the game matter too, which makes me feel much more involved in development. Another good thing about working here is that while there's a lot to do just before releasing new updates and the like, we get to have more free time than is standard to enjoy our private lives when there's less to do.

Making Games Which Inspire

Making Games Which Inspire

That moment when players respond with enthusiasm to our latest release or update is the best ever. What's keeping me in the games industry is that I can never get enough of that thrill and sense of accomplishment. I became a game graphic designer because I fell in love with video games when I was little. I hope that the games I work on might inspire others to pursue a career in this industry, or that they will spark some positive change in their lives.

Do you want to show your artwork to players around the world? Tell them fantastic stories? Enchant the world with your original ideas? If so, AIDIS is the perfect place for you! Let's make awesome games!
