  • Commitment to meeting deadlines and responsiveness throughout the work process.
  • Availability for future additions to the project beyond the initial scope.
  • PayPal account for accepting online payment (in CAD currency).

Being familiar with videogame development and local to the Greater Toronto Area and is a plus, but not required.

If you’re interested, post a direct response below or e-mail us at work@incubatorgames.com. Make sure to include a portfolio link and highlight your cute and original illustrations and production artwork. Judging by past experience, we will not be able to respond to every entry, but we will definitely check out each submission.
