Artist Applications – Do’s and Don’ts

Hey Internet People!

My name’s Rob, I’m an Art Director here at Arrowhead. We get a lot of applications for artist positions, and I’m the guy who usually sits down and reviews them. It takes quite a bit of time, and there are some things I see again and again from people applying. I thought I’d pour out some of my thoughts onto the Internet about what I feel are do’s and don’ts when applying for an art job. Others may disagree with what I’ve written here, and that’s totally cool; like I say, these are just my thoughts. To make things interesting, I’ve made some animated gifs for you too, hoorah.

We’re back! (We weren’t really gone though)

A brand new year! Doesn’t 2015 sound so much more future than 2014? Isn’t it time for travels to Mars, exoskeletons, food in pill form and hoverboards? We think it’s a great year for releasing games. Maybe a sci-fi future game would be nice.

We’re all at the office again with a running start. It seems this year’s bonus holiday has gotten everyone all fired up to get going with new things and we’ve done great progress in this week alone.
We’ve taken measures to improve the office and workspace for everyone as well as started working on defining what Arrowhead really is and how we will work from here. These are exciting times and we will continue sharing news and our vision with you during the year.
And on top of that it’s Friday! What could possibly go wrong?

It’s been great receiving all your positive feedback on Gauntlet and we’ve solved as many of your issues as possible so far.

Gauntlet release slightly pushed

We’re sorry we have to inform you that the release date of Gauntlet has been moved from September 3rd to September 23rd, but also happy that this will allow us to bring you the best possible Gauntlet experience. The reason for the move is to give a little more time to fine-tuning the multiplayer part of the game, and we felt it was necessary.

We know you are waiting eagerly and here are three treats to keep you going just a little bit longer.

  1. A new walkthrough video giving an in-depth look into the game modes, heroes, relics and gear: Gauntlet Gameplay Walkthrough Trailer
  2. A Thank You to everyone who pre-ordered the game with a special in-game bonus item: The Spawn of Kerthull, a Wizard’s robe made from dead imps, who are the spawn of the greater demon Kerthull.
  3. Starting next week, over at the Gauntlet facebook page, there will be 10 consecutive days of caption contests! Every day you will have your chance to win a copy of Gauntlet by captioning and sharing a screenshot found on the page.

We apologize for this delay and thank you for your understanding. Let’s Invade The Darkness together in a month!

Best of luck!

It is something rarely seen, that an employee leaves Arrowhead. But yesterday evening we said goodbye and wished all the best luck to one of the earliest members of the team, Therese “Tuss” Jansson, who has decided to spread her wings and look for different opportunities in the future.

Now at four days after the Gauntlet announcement we’re absolutely thrilled about the response we’ve received from fans as well as press. I won’t get long-winded this time but leave you with our very first released screenshots of our four heroes taking on a small horde of monsters, and a little sneak peek of an extra bad guy.
