WinterLeaf Entertainment - Art Team Expansion Opportunities [unpaid/royality]
06-30-2012, 12:50 AM
WinterLeaf Entertainment is an Indie Game / Software Development Company that is been together for over 2 years and is now looking to expand it established art team to help deliver its ambitious project.
WinteLeaf Entertainment: WLE is an indie development team that is working on a collaborative basis to deliver our fantasy based MMO game 'Dawn of Ascension'. However, before embarking on what is undoubtedly a huge task for any indie team, we have fundamentally spent the last 12- 18 months developing the technology required to deliver such a project. Our Technical Team have taken an existing 3D game engine and completely rewritten the heart of the engines programming so that it can manage a MMO environment and demands. Given the performance enhancements achieved for this engine improvement work we are just about to release this as a separate product to the gaming industry as well as using it to build our MMO.Our technical development team contains professional programmers and is of an extremely high calibre that are not only capable of handling the programming of the game development but are 'proven' in delivering the technical client - server gaming architecture required. Our Website is WinterLeaf Entertainment L.L.C. Home
Dawn of Ascension is our flagship MMO game. Now that our technical foundations are solid and our servers are working beyond all expectations under load testing we are now confident in our technical capacity to deliver this project in full. We are now handling 500+ AI at only 4% server use. We have therefore been developing our game environment and separate game-play server mechanics. We have a GDD prepared and available to those joining the project. This contains both game and technical development requirements. As I'm sure anyone reading this will understand I am not able to divulge the content and gameplay environment as this is commercially confidential, however, I am at liberty to state that it is a fantasy based MMO and that anyone that has an interest in this style of RPG/MMO it will certainly live up to expectations.
Our Current Team: WLE comprises a Technical Development Team of professional programmers and technical developers responsible for game architecture and game play. Alongside this we have an Art Team who are responsible for delivering the game assets and environment for our MMO game. We have concept artists and 3D modellers working on our game art mechanics and assets. However, to deliver an ambitious project such as our Dawn of Ascension MMO we are looking to expand our Art Team. We don't rely on third party game assets and on the same principle as our engine build we create everything uniquely ourselves. This is a fundamental component of WLE. Our Technical and Art Teams are also supported by others such as writers and external closed advisers and testers.
What we offer: WLE is a long standing development team of technical programmers, writers and artists who are first and foremost friends that share the same commitment and ambitions to deliver this project. Above all else this is key to us all. If we are all going to spend so much time delivering this project the principle is paramount. To this end we can offer people wishing to join us a very enjoyable working environment. Yes, at times frustrating and hard work, but this is not a simple project. Therefore we can offer advice, support and even training where required. We provide people with the opportunity to develop their interests, skills and abilities and contribute fully to the development of our game and technology.
What we can't offer: We can't offer immediate payment. Everyone, and I mean 'from the top' work on this voluntary and on a self funded basis. We work on a collaborative basis so that whoever works with us knows from the outset that everything in this project is fair and no one is disadvantaged. Artists, Technical developers, programmers, writers and testers ALL do this through their own commitment. Equally we do not expect anyone to contribute to the project financially. We are looking to self fund this work through selling MMO technology advancements and this is looking promising. However, this being said, when funding is secured and the programme is stable it is fully intended that contributors are appropriately rewarded. WLE operates on a fair and open collaborative basis. Its the only way, we believe.
Current opportunities available: Hopefully the above will give you some indication of what WLE is about and what we are seeking to achieve. I am happy to explain more in posts or through private email. At present, however, we have a huge task ahead of us and therefore we are looking to expand our Art Team with the following positions.
