Seeking an artist
« on: July 17, 2013, 04:48:51 AM »
So here's the thing. I have quite a few interesting game ideas I want to pursue in the near future, and which game I pursue depends on the available resources. I'm a developer, not an artist -- but if I can find a good artist to work with, I'm totally down for that too. Ideally it'd be a joint venture -- so perhaps someone who already makes their living off the Asset Store and wants to pursue something bigger alongside and would want a 50/50 split on the final game... but I'm also no stranger to contracting and paying for art upfront if the artist prefers it instead.

If it's the former (joint venture), I'd prefer to work with someone with a long-term goal in mind -- not someone who just wants to make 100 assets over the course of a month and move on to something else, but rather someone who would be interested in seeing the project through to the end and wearing multiple hats -- from art, to storylines, design, etc.

And now about the game ideas themselves.

First up is the post-apocalyptic survival game. Player explores the ruins of a procedurally generated city, befriends other survivors, creates shelter, weapons, gadgets, etc -- multiplayer coop/versus of course. If you've watched "The Colony" show's first season, you're off to a good start. It would be easiest to do in top-down 2D style, so I'd want a pixel artist for this one.

Next is the sci-fi game with a greater scope. Think Battlestar Galactica exploring a procedurally generated galaxy populated with several rival factions. Jump to a star, give your Battlestar warship generic orders in 3rd person mode, and watch the action unfold in what seems to be slow motion (when in reality it's slow just because of the massive scale) -- or jump into a Viper and join the fight. Want to remain in 3rd person and direct your massive warship while your friends join in and fly the fighters? Certainly. Coop multiplayer is a given. This game would beg for an Occulus Rift support, and I'd be seeing a 3D artist capable of doing art similar to Infinity: Quest for Earth.

These are the two of the many game ideas that are on the top of my list right now that I'd like to see come to fruition. If you're an artist and may be interested, drop me a line with a link to your portfolio and other relevant infos. :)
