Well, enough introductions, let's get to work!
- Project summary
Like the title says, we need artists, but I'll explain in detail what I actually want below.
The first release, that is to say this project, is based on two big stories.
Depending on this project's success more releases will be done, so whoever accepts working with us will have more work in the future!
At any rate, the first story is at 95% (70k words. It requires some minor changes but the story's quality is very solid) and the second one is at 95% as well(10k words. It also requires some minor changes).
The story is set in the future, around the years 2020-2050 and it's explained through different POVs.
The main genre is sci-fi but it covers a wide range of topics. Some of them rather hard to digest.
You will find attached a teaser so you can have an idea of what the project's about. The real thing is much better than the teaser :P
It's a txt file, but I suggest using GhostWriter to read it.
I've also uploaded a couple images of our current artist so you can see what kind of art we want. Both the sprites and the CGs MUST have the same art style (or at least it must be very similar). Backgrounds can have a different style.
Like most projects in this sub-forum, I cannot offer immediate payment, salary nor a fixed wage ( I wish I could) so, instead, what I'm offering is rev-share and a free copy of the game when it's finished. I hope you find this fair enough.
EDIT : When we have a more "tangible" project we will start a funding campaign in Kickstarter. We will pay with royalties of the game if the funding is unsuccessful. And if the funding is successful we will pay for everything that has been done and will be done, but in order to pay for what has been done we would need to agree on a price first. I would personally like to have an "alpha" before December. The sooner we do the Kickstarter campaign the sooner you will be able to see some money!
- Coder CLOSED
Apart from that, well, I guess that it must have what other VNs have: Appealing GUI, scene changes, text log, save/load features and so on.
- Background artist CLOSED
There are quite a lot of backgrounds that will have to be done, surely more than 10, so it's a considerable job.
- CG artist CLOSED
However, there are some CGs that are going to be quite challenging because they rely on reflections, light effects and the like.
Also, some CGs contain mature content (violence and nudity) , so the artist must be fine with that.
- Character/sprite artitst CLOSED
They will change their clothes( only a couple times so it's not actually worrying) and they'll have many facial expressions, ranging from heartbreaking sadness to radiant cheerfulness.
Finally, there is a scene with nudity, so the artist should be fine with that as well.
A single artist can apply for multiple positions if he/she thinks he/she can do it, which will result in more royalties/money for him/her at the end!
- Composer CLOSED
Sadly, just like the art, we have no music. The music must be somewhat futuristic and seamless. It has to be "loop-able" so to speak.
Around 5-10 tracks will be needed.
- Final comments
Time is NOT an issue right now, which means that if you want to work for us you will have a flexible schedule.
No deadlines, but it would be nice to have an alpha before December.
Just get the job done in a reasonable amount of time.
If you have any questions regarding the project you can either email me or post a message here. I'll make sure to answer you as soon as I can.
Well, thank you very much for your time!
Hopefully we will be able to make this a big success!
