What We Do

Just like physical civilization has forms of social organization like capitalism or communism, a new form of social organization is made possible by the interconnectedness of virtual worlds.

By unearthing the keys of virtual civilization, we put ourselves in a position to impact that civilization with our values of human life and freedom.

We make virtual experiences and games with the goal of discovering new forms of social organization which may arise in virtual spaces.

Your Role

As a volunteer 3D Artist, you choose your own hours and set your own deadlines. We’re seeking someone experienced and passionate to join our team. The successful candidate will create high-quality 3D models, textures, and animations to bring our game worlds to life, collaborating closely with other artists, designers, and developers.


You will choose from the following responsibilities:

  • Create and develop high-quality 3D assets, including visually pleasing and optimized 3D models, textures, and materials for game characters, environments, and other in-game elements.

  • Produce lifelike animations and rigging, ensuring smooth and realistic movement in-game.

  • Work closely with the game design team to ensure that the 3D assets and animations enhance the game’s mechanics and overall player experience.

  • Optimize 3D assets to meet technical requirements and performance standards, such as polygon count, texture resolution, and level-of-detail optimization.

  • Collaborate with programmers to implement custom shaders, visual effects, and other advanced rendering techniques.

  • Participate in art reviews and critiques, offering and receiving constructive feedback to refine the quality and consistency of the game’s visuals.

  • Stay current with industry trends and techniques, including software tools, 3D rendering methods, and emerging platforms or technologies.

  • Organize, maintain, and appropriately document all 3D assets, following our studio’s naming conventions, file organization, and version control protocols.

Why take on this challenge?

Working with passionate people: Without money as a motivator, our entire team participates solely because they are passionate about making games.

Tackling unique challenges: Organizing volunteer teams is more challenging as they rely on micro-contributors rather than dedicated individuals. This means more communication and coordination is necessary. This is a fascinating challenge that will leave you more-than-equipped for paid endeavors.

Experiment without risk: We provide a low-stress, low-pressure environment where individuals can experiment with taking on high-level tasks, gaining experience in fields you would normally have to spend years climbing up to.


Our team offers mentorship and a space to build your portfolio in a friendly and supportive environment.

As an Open Collective, we are happy to mentor and empower those seeking to break into the industry.

Our mentors include:

Cory Policht – World-class Agile team-building coach

James Mouat – Game Designer & Director – Ubisoft/EA

Tim Cotten – Ultima Online Development Lead

Cal Aurand – Former VP, Sony Music.
