Good morning! I am Sven, and I am working with about a dozen or more others in and on a new game development company. We are recruiting staff to work on our first major project.
Please reply if you are interested in either working with us permanently or just on select portions of this project. If you are interested there are two things to understand: 1) We are currently all working part-time (read: we are not staking our financial futures on this, but if it starts generating a lot of revenue, we might quit our day jobs), and 2) This is not guaranteed to be paid work (read: if this game sells, then we all get paid, otherwise, we are all working for free).
Please note that we’re currently only accepting people from the US and Germany(due to legal conditions, if you think the system in your country will allow you to work with us under contract and without complications, I will ask the project leader for permission)
For now Pwnertainment, but both the company name and the game’s title will change prior to release and company incorporation(soon)
Live Archduke seeks to put the gamer first-person into historical events, while retaining all of the interactivity of a standard modern FPS(still, mostly mostly antique weapons). Live Archduke will do so by immersing the gamer in an overarching storyline. Live Archduke is not intended to be a technical masterpiece, but is focusing on an engaging story and solid gameplay. Live Archduke can be played either two-player co-op or single-player with an advanced AI partner.
(for further information, please contact me privately.

For artists: We are aiming for this level of graphics, if you think you can’t reach this in any sector, please apply as an animator or rigger(advanced rigger), if you are specified on one sector, like humanoids or environment, please note that as well.
We are all serious and putting willingly much of our time into this. There have already been several people sacked because they were not dedicated enough.
