Retro Studios is looking for Entry-Level only Environment Artists and Animators. What is Entry-Level? Well, more specifically, we are looking for those that do not have any industry experience, so sorry Mid and Senior-Tier Artists and Animators. We are looking for someone who is passionate about games and takes pride in their work. Someone who wants to be part of a creative and collaborative team and who will be thrilled to work on Nintendo’s awesome IPs! This is an excellent opportunity for someone to get their foot in the door at an awesome studio!

Retro Studios is in Austin, TX, USA and is known for our work on the Metroid Prime series and lately the Donkey Kong Country series: both Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze.
