Archetype Entertainment is a new game studio in Austin, Texas led by industry veterans from BioWare and other AAA studios. Archetype is a division of Wizards of the Coast (Hasbro). We are building a development team with world-class talent to create a new science fiction universe for our first multiplatform roleplaying video game.

Our goal is to create the greatest story-driven roleplaying games in the world.

At Archetype, we believe there will always be a place for story-driven roleplaying games that put the player at the center of an epic personal narrative with impactful choices. We also believe that game studios should empower top developers and challenge them with ambitious projects that are shaped by a strong, clearly communicated creative vision.

We chose Austin because it is a great place to live and work. Austin is the capital of Texas and is a fast-growing city with a vibrant music scene, cosmopolitan culture, and a world-class university (the University of Texas at Austin). From downtown high rises to scenic rolling hills, Austin offers something for everyone and has been voted the #1 place to live in America multiple times in the past 5 years based on affordability, job prospects, and quality of life.

The Role

Archetype is looking for a passionate, experienced, and collaborative Senior Gameplay Designer to bring our companion characters to life through engaging traversal, exploration, and combat mechanics while reflecting their roles in the game's narrative.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience crafting rich and exciting companions and other non-player characters in AAA titles that build an emotional connection with players. You'll work with the player, enemies, encounter, narrative, and other teams to imbue our companions with the authentic and organic qualities roleplaying gamers expect today!
