In this role, the new recruit will collaborate with multiple disciplines, acting as a bridge between engineering and art teams, guiding the development of our procedural pipelines, and supporting the teams using the tools. Among the listed responsibilities, it is stated that they are expected to discover ways to leverage existing pipeline tools and features in Unreal Engine 5, thus implying that the project is being developed in this engine.

Other requirements and responsibilities include previous experience with Houdini and integration with Unreal Engine pipelines, creation, maintenance, and documentation of usable procedural world-building and asset-building tools for use in Unreal Engine via Houdini, integration and support for new tools (Python/C#/Unreal Blueprint) into the existing art pipeline, research and incorporation of recent advances into existing pipelines and environment art workflows, and collaboration with artists to fulfill needs in tech, discover best practices, and communication with the team. Furthermore, it is stated as a plus for candidates to have knowledge/proficiency in Unreal Engine 5 and Unreal Blueprint Scripting.

Double Fine’s previous game, Psychonauts 2 is a platformer developed by Double Fine and published by Xbox Game Studios. The game was revealed at The Game Awards 2015, and was released on August 25, 2021 for PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, and for Linux and macOS on May 24, 2022. Like in the game’s predecessor, players assume control of Raz, a young acrobat is training to join an international task force that uses psychic abilities to stop people who carry out evil deeds with their own psychic forces.
