Application Deadline

Toot Games is seeking a 2D Artist for contract work to work on our flagship game, My Arms Are Longer Now. We are after someone who enjoys grotty art and dumb comedy. 

Stylistically, we are looking for an artist who can imitate the style of Millie Holten and can make creative iterations quickly.

This role is remote, but you must be located in and authorised to work in Australia. 

Diverse and junior candidates are encouraged to apply! We value aptitude and a friendly professional attitude more than years and years in the industry. 

Rate: $38-40 per hour depending on expertise and experience 
Contract: estimated 64 hours spread across a 3 month period (super flexible) at $40 an hour. Looking to begin work around May.

Skills & Experiences:

  • Ability to create game-ready assets and import them into Unity.
  • Ability to iterate on assets as needed to achieve the desired look/style.
  • Strong communication skills and ability to work in a team.
  • You can do isometric art


  • Technical art skills such as lighting and Unity ShaderGraph.
  • Prior experience with GitHub.
  • Enjoys some dumb/grotty comedy.

The Game: My Arms Are Longer Now is a comedic 2D stealth/adventure game for Mac, PC and Nintendo Switch.

You are a very long arm that does heists. Avoid security systems, decipher blueprints, snake through vents, put a sock on your hand and seduce a lonely guard — whatever it takes to pull off the perfect score!

A mashup of tense stealth and ridiculous comedy, My Arms Are Longer Now offers a unique and feral gaming experience.

The Studio: Toot Games is an independent games studio in Naarm/Melbourne - formed by Matthew Jackson (Programmer, Technical Artist, Designer) & Millie Holten (Artist, Writer, Designer). Comedy, silliness and heart are at the core of our work. As we expand, we are committed to hiring people with different lived experiences to our own.
