Hi, my name is Sam and I’m the project lead for Meteor Pixel’s latet game- Bushido: Legend of the Samurai.
Bushido has been in development for nearly 2 years, and we’re now at the point where we want to swap out some of the placeholder assets (such as animations) for our own.
We’ve already made a few animations ourselves (e.g. walk, jog, turn on the spot) but ideally want to focus our time in other areas as we lead up to our upcoming fund-raising campaign. Also, animation isn’t a core discipline of any of our current team members- so we don’t want to put anything out there that looks sub-par.
We already have a fully rigged character with some basic IK controls, so any potential animators would be able to start creating movements right away.
Animation’s that we require include:
- Walking Backwards
- Strafing Left and Right
- Drawing of the sword (and sheathing it again)
- Idle pose with the sword drawn
- Different attacks (8 in total)
- Different blocks (one for each attack)
- Moving forward/left/right/back with the sword drawn
- Evading forward/left/right/back with the sword drawn
This works out to be about 30 different animations, although many of them could be mirrored/use another as a strong starting point.
