And that, members of the GMC, is where you come in. As of right now it is just me, a lone programmer and developer who is in search of building up his team. Input from team members will be a very important aspect to decisions regarding the games so as members of the team you will not feel as if you're being forced to just create whatever big brother asks you too. I understand as well that things come up, people have lives, etc. so I will try my hardest to keep anyone from feeling rushed, and keep a stress-free environment where we can all have fun doing our part in creating great games.
Also, since my long-term goal with my projects is commercial release, anybody involved will receive a fair cut of any payment received, split of course depending on individual work on said project and the number of current members on the team. This means, not only do I plan to create a fun environment for creating the games but I also am offering a chance for financial gain if the projects are able to be completed.
But these are all long term goals mind you. For now, I simply wish to create my team and begin development on the first project. Here are the members which I require in order to begin along with what will be required to apply. I may take multiple members in each category so if a slot is filled do not be afraid to apply, you will just have a smaller chance of acceptance rather than if the slot is empty.
Graphic Designers: This is probably the category I will take more in than any other. In order to apply please show an example of your work in a PM and have a second example ready as I may want to see more. Realism and detail are a very strong influence on my judgement, but I am also looking for a very well cartoon/anime artist who can present detail, but still modern quality in the graphics. I would also prefer to have one person capable of doing both people/creatures and props but this would not be an automatic rejection if it is not within your skill set.
----- - Realism Artist
----- - Cartoon/Anime Artist
Sound/Music Designers: I really don't have much to say here except I need someone who is talented in creating many different sound effects for many various situations and someone who is able to compose music in either midi or mp3 format in various styles with passion and feeling behind it. To apply present a sample of your sound effects/music in a PM and have a second sample in stock in case it is asked for after.
----- - Sound Effect Composer
----- - Music Composer
Voice Actors: This is the category that I can do without if I cannot find the members, therefore my standards on applications will be much higher than that of the others. I am looking for voice actors able to effectively present the emotions felt by various characters in dialogue in order to make characters feel truly alive. I do not wish to have to hire too many people, and if I use voice acting for one character in a game it will have to be used for all therefore a requirement will be that the person applying is able to present their skills in at least two to three different voices in order to act out multiple characters within a game script. To apply present a sample of your voice acting in at least two different voices in a PM.
----- - Voice Actor
----- - Voice Actor
Online Programmers: In all my time using Game Maker the online functions are one thing that I have yet to learn and due to such I will need somebody on my team who is able to handle converting data written for a single player game so that it is able to be used online. You do not have to host the servers, though any ability to do so would be very much appreciated. You will be the ones responsible for creating servers (not hosting), and all transfers of data from the client to said servers. There is really no way to apply for this position before hand, just PM me what you are and are not capable of doing. If a position is empty there is a good chance you will get your chance.
----- - Online Programmer
All members of the team will gain due credit for all work accomplished, as well as a cut in any payment aquired from commercialization of completed games. If you have any questions about the team, applying, or anything related to the topic feel free to PM them to me as well. I hope to create a team that can become friends and accomplish amazing things with an amazing program.
