Plumedrop seeking for artists and musicians

Hello fellow artists, coders and musicians! I'm pixeldesu, Project Lead of Plumedrop, a small team of Visual Novel lovers that joined together from various backgrounds to create the games we love and enjoy spending our time with.
Fun, teamwork and the feedback we give each other is a main driving force for us. Now we are approaching you on here because we need some help with bringing our project to life!

Project Andromeda

(Name is subject to change...if we come up with one ;__;)

Synopis:
You are Emeka, a cargoman who does odd jobs to make a living. Your job takes you to all sorts of colonies and planets. You’re pretty sure you’ve seen it all. You’re not exactly living in luxury, but you’re better off than the people in those domes. When you’re given an opportunity to change your life for the better, you’re sceptical. There will be strings attached. There’s most likely a catch. Corporations aren’t exactly trustworthy.
But then, even if one percent of that choice is genuine, would you take that chance to change not just your life, but the lives of everyone in the galaxy?
As you can see Project Andromeda is a Visual Novel set in the far future where people already occupied planets lightyears away from Earth. Mainly corporations have power in the systems and in between all of this is our protagonist, Emeka, a simple cargoman. Different choices will bring different outcomes, it's entirely in your hands.

Positions

Project Andromeda is currently worked on by two people in our team (including myself), so we stil need some more people to get stuff going:
  • Character Artist: We need someone to bring our characters to life, including initial designs, as we only have basic ideas of how they look on paper.
  • Background Artist: The space is vast, and so is the need for backgrounds. Different planets, interiors for stations and spaceships, the artist can help us shape a unique world here!
  • Musician: Space is usually quite silent, but you can help us bringing sound to it!
What's already done

We already finished the initial writing of our common route (~32000 words). A point in time we need artists to start to visualize the game and not just have it on paper.

What we can offer
  • A friendly team! You can give feedback to the work happening and get feedback as requested, we're quite open regarding that.
  • No deadlines. As this is a free project not commercially backed there is no need to hurry. We do this in our free time and we do it for fun and for creating stuff. No hassles or anything.
Interested?

Send me a private message on here and we can get into talking! Be sure to include some references!

If you have any questions regarding the project, just ask them below, I'm happy to answer them!

Hello~! This project sounds pretty cool, and I'm always a sucker for scifi/// I was interested in drawing for this (I have some examples here), but I wanted to ask more about what exactly would that entail?
Would there be a ton of characters/boys/girls/aliens? And would there be many CGs? I'd love to know more about the story/characters/direction it's planned on going.

For a bit more clarity on the scale of the project, I added a wordcount to the common route information.

Also, we still are in need for a musician and artists!

Mostly human characters, indeed. Considering it will be a very lengthy project, we need a lot of art assets as well, but as most of us are students themselves, time is not a real matter for us. If you want to know more about the story, drop me a message and I can send over a small summary we have prepared for people interested!

I might be interested in doing some music for the project. Depends on what style you were looking for. Ambient? Cinematic? Jazz? Let me know.

Ambient and Cinematic mostly, everything going in a more sci-fi tone (of course, it's playing mostly in space) and as there are also some Action-scenes involved, cinematic-style wouldn't be too bad to have!

If you are interested, just drop me a message and we can figure stuff out to work together!

Hi there, I'd like to help you work on your project if you would like. You can check out my deviant here: http://clevercat15.deviantart.com/ I'd prefer to work on sprites if you don't have that spot filled yet. Other wise I'm happy to work on BG art. :)
