On various occasions I've talked about a game that I and some friends of mine are working on that we plan to release on Android and possibly Steam. Well we recently encountered one of those eye opening moments that make you hate your favorite game developers: that moment when almost all aspects of the game are finished and suddenly someone says "Yeah, but wouldn't it be so much cooler if we did this other thing instead?" and everyone agrees so they scrap a lot of content and postpone the release date. Yay.

Now while I won't go into much about what has been changed, I would like to say that we're now looking to hire in some help for audio, graphics, and additional programmers. If you might be interested in earning extra Viz or even some cash, read on.


Audio - We decided to go for modern audio, and as such we now need someone who can put together good music for us. We're currently looking to pay on a by-the-song basis, but if you're good enough and you want it to, this could potentially turn into a long term role with us.

How it will work - You put a song together and send us a copy of it. If we like it and think it's a good fit for our game, we'll work out a price for it with you. Note that once you sell it to us, you also sell us all rights to it. You will be credited for it, but you cannot reclaim it. That's only fair after all.
Next you tell us if you want Viz now, or cash after the game's release. Then we work out a deal. Simple as that.



Graphics - We need hand drawn or computer art. The things we'll need are:
-Trees. Individual trees and entire backdrops of trees.
-Mountains. Individual and entire scenes, but mostly full size scenes (backdrops)
-Ocean/Beach scene for a backdrop (no people on it)
-Snow scene for a backdrop
-Desert scene for a backdrop
-Grassy Hills scene for a backdrop
-Forrest scene for a backdrop
-Bushes. Individual and entire scenes for backdrops

How it will work - Same as with audio. See above.


Programmer - We need an experienced programmer who can work well with C# and preferably has experience with Unity.

How it will work - We'll hire you on for this project only, however this could turn into a permanent position if you want and we feel that it's a good idea and that we can afford it. Your pay will be determined by how much of your code is used in the final product.


That's it for now.

zanderlex : Definitely. Send me a PM about it and we can work out the payment arrangements and such.



Frodlex : Well the game is a 2D sidescrolling platformer, and it'll actually cover a lot of ground and story throughout the game so we'll be employing various types of music. Everything from laid back to high energy, from cheerful to sad, possibly even suspenseful or creepy. Really at this point we can be pretty flexible since the levels are still being redesigned and with the redesign comes gameplay adaptions.

I guess in ways those who contribute to the music will be helping to shape the levels. So we're entertaining any style of music at this point.

bombchu link : To be fair, he did suggest one game. Also being fair though, he and I have very different ideas about what makes a good game and how the team would run best (and we came to terms on that, in a peaceful and respectful way). And the change here is against what he (and I initially) wanted: we opted against retro. We had plenty of 8-bit music for retro, but we can't produce modern game music ourselves yet, and modern 2D is now the approach.

And we switched because of marketing reasons, not because five was too hard. But this is all far from pertinent to the topic really. Not sure where the hate came from though. Please if you need to tell me how great someone else is and how I should listen to them, use my profile or PM instead of a thread looking to hire people, lest we spam it up.

Twenty gazillion...five...close enough, right?

Eirinn : It's simple, are you paying? And what are you paying in? Game design is an interesting business, I want to know what the plans are. In what ways can I benefit from this situation?

Eirinn : It's really not that hard to find someone to make modern music, just take a look at OCremix.org. There are some great artists on that site and I would highly recommend checking those guys out.


Who has hate? (I just always look this cold, maybe it's the layout.)

I just though something didn't line up so I asked a question since I never post anymore anyway. Maybe I should just go back under my rock.

Frodlex : Yeah, we're paying. We'll pay in Viz now or money after release, or a mix of both.

As for plans, are you asking what we're planning on doing with the game by way of design, or release? Or are you asking what our team plans to do in general?

As an outside source you would benefit from the pay (of course) as well as getting your name on products if you planned to follow a career related to games, music, graphics, or programming.
As a member of the team you would get all of the above as well as a job that you could work a reasonable amount of time and as your schedule permitted, for extra cash. And once we're an established business with a consistent income, you would have a steady paycheck doing it.

And with both of the above you get experience that would look good on a resumé or just plain be helpful for you personally if you plan to pursue a career in any of the things we're looking for help with.

I'm definitely interested in money. And a career in this line of work at that, if only I could get so lucky. I would be more than willing to help out with music production (Given my tools for such at moment will allow me.) story concept, level design (given I will need a program for it.), and alpha testing.

If any of these are appealing to you, let me know.

Frodlex : Alright, awesome. Any of those would be helpful, and for now the music part would be great. If you're ready to give it a shot, let me know when you have something put together for me to check out. I'm excited to see what you have in store for us.

Feel free to let me know here, or via pm when you're ready to submit your work, and once I hear it we'll discuss payment. Also if you'd like to become a member of the team, that's certainly an option as well.

SilverHyruler : We currently need Audio, Graphics, and programming, but if you want to learn how to write code in C# and use Unity, that would be cool and I could link you to the site for both. And we may hire in a writer on an upcoming game. We already plan to do that with one of them at least.

I'd love to be a part of the team, but before I could really start making progress in the music department, I need to know the general atmosphere of the story, and probably the story itself before I get started. Assuming that much is already made. If not. Where to I begin?

IgorBird122 : Okay, thanks for posting it here as well, just post again and let me know when you have some images ready if you will please. I'm very much excited to see what you put together.


Frodlex : We already have the opening to the story in writing, but that's it. Since this app was originally going to have several games in it we weren't planning on having a full story, more like just giving a reason as to why you were doing what you were doing. The writing of a full story is a part of the overhaul however, and I'll gladly give you a look at the story in general via pm. Do you already have all of the tools you need to make the music? If so I'll send you the pm with the opening of the story and the general concept of what will follow, and possibly a rough draft of the rest of the story as soon as it's ready.
