First off. Thanks in advance for reading this topic.

 Some of you might be familiar with Shades of Violet. I was giving away demos last Austin GDC, The game is Previewed in Adventure gamers, and I posted my bit on the forums too. It is an adventure game (traditional point and click) with a rather unique aesthetic and has heavy focus in plot.

 The game was going to be ready before May this year. Most of it is done actually, and it was getting pretty easy now that the basics had been laid. But here is where our nice story gets ugly.

OUR PROGRAMMER JUST QUIT.
[/color]

 After working on this for a year and getting all in it, our once great programmer just decided he wanted to pursue other interests in life. Godspeed to him, but we've been left hanging. Now, My Ma' told me that if I didn't have something good to say about someone, then I better say nothing at all. So let's leave it at that.

 So, I'm turning here where I've seen wonderful work for help. We need a programmer. Here is the lowdown on the game, and what is done. So you see that we're not just a group of hacks. We ARE actually very down the road.

What is the game about:
An episodic Adventure game about the life adventure of two pre-adolescent girls in a steampunk world setting. It is a mix of Comedy and Drama. And we are aiming so that each episode becomes a story arc in a larger storyline. It follows many conventions of Young adult novels, and it is very heavy story-wise.

If you want to get the lowdown on the story and see screenshots, visit this preview link: http://www.adventuregamers.com/newsitem.php?id=1972

Tech specs:
Done with Wintermute engine. If you're familiar with another engine, We are open to suggestions if you want to try something else.
 Realtime 3d models over pre-rendered backgrounds.
 3d models are animated with Biped. And done with 3d Max.
 Backgrounds are pre-rendered.

The game has:
A demo. And all the basic groundwork laid out.
 A very VERY extensive design document. Nothing left unsaid.
 SCRIPT has been completed.
 ALL of the misc. texts like descriptions and tidbits are done.
 16 characters. Only 2 characters left to model, and they're close to done too.
 Of all those characters, most are textured already. All of them are half-textured but 5 are not completed yet.
 Characters are animated already.
 All interface done.
 5 backgrounds done. 8 remain.
 Only missing minor concept art. Almost everything else is done.
 Original audio score by Vernian Process.

What do you get for working on this?
A percentage of the eventual Revenue. We're doing this at a cost.
 All credit of course.
 
What kinda programmer are we looking for?
 ONE THAT IS RESPONSIBLE and has time for this. Please, don't let us bother you. You really have to dedicate a bit of time to this. It's not a difficult game to do, but there's a lot of content.
 One that has some 3d experience and can adapt to the assets we've got. But that's not that much of a problem.

 Again, thanks in advance. If you want to see the design doc, look at the assets, or talk in depth. Please DO contact me at [email protected] , Things were going very well so far and I have to say right now I'm a bit disheartened. But I'm not going to let that screw the project over. This game is looking VERY pretty and very different. and I wish to find someone who cares about odd games like ours enough to make them. I can promise you this game is worth it.

 Again, thanks.

First off. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who wrote. It seems to Me we might be onto finding a programmer right now as the response has been overwhelmingly positive. And I've talked with a greatly talented man who seems to fit snugly for the role. I thank all of you for your interest, and Special thanks to Lively ivy and Dave Gilbert for posting on their twitters. If all goes well, I might have found a fellow person to help me, and I truly appreciate the support of others. With luck and a lot of work, this game will be back on track before long. I'll update as the situation follows too! Thanks again!

Good luck, I hope you manage to find a new programmer because this game was looking very interesting last time I saw it.
