Hello, my name is Taharka and I develop video games as a hobby. My teammate and I are looking to recruit one producer, one writer and one game designer to work with us on an RPG. So far, the team currently consists of one writer and one game designer. Our writer is the producer and game designer of a fighting game that is eight months into the development process. We are currently in the very early stages of developing ideas for an RPG set in a cyberpunk, space setting. We have not made any final decisions regarding the game's story or the game engine we'll use to create the game. We plan to recruit artists, programmers and animators later to help us create the RPG.
For all three positions, we are looking for individuals that:
- have a passion for RPGs and management/writing/game design
- are highly motivated
- will demonstrate initiative
- have strong written communication skills and interpersonal skills
- can work independently and in a team
- and are willing to spend at least 10 hours a week doing project-related tasks when required
Experience is not necessary, but it is appreciated.
The producer's tasks include managing the team, managing the team forum, keeping records, recruiting new members, contacting publishers and other outside parties and supporting team members when required. Furthermore, the producer must be willing to supervise the project until its completion. The producer must demonstrate maturity, organization and diplomacy. The producer does not unilaterally make major decisions, but like all team members, he/she has a say in major decision-making. If the producer wishes to do so, he/she may assist in writing, game design or other areas.
The writer's tasks include writing comprehensible storylines and compelling characters, creating detailed character and environment descriptions for the team's artists, penning realistic dialogue for the game's characters, finalizing the game's script, communicating ideas to game designers and artists and writing text needed for game marketing and sales.
The game designer's tasks include creating a detailed design document describing how the game plays, researching game engines and game platforms and working with writers, programmers and artists to bring ideas into reality.
All three positions are unpaid. Here are some of the benefits of participating in this project:
- fulfill a dream by creating an RPG
- gain experience and knowledge
- make valuable contacts
- work with passionate and friendly game developers
- add to your resume or portfolio
- receive recognition from the gaming community (if the game is a critical success)
- and earn money (if the game is a financial success)
