    Project Title:
    Codename: Project TWIN

    Application Link: http://www.impromptustudios.com/Application.aspx

    Impromptu Studios, LLC, is looking to acquire talented individuals for our initial game venture. Our team consists of 40 volunteers ranging in skill level from green graduate to battle-hardened industry professionals. We are a fun, social group that is as interested in developing our studio culture as we are in the completion of our project. The time frame of this project is 6 - 9 months, with the genre being an RPG, based in a fantasy world.

    We are currently finishing our design phase, after spending about 2 months designing and balancing the game mechanics.

    Please note that this game project is purely for educational growth and experience; this game will be released as a not-for-profit digital release.

    Platform:
    PC - Single Player game using Unreal Engine 4.3

    Estimated Project Deadline:
    6-9 months

    Description:
    When a young man is captured by slavers, the last thing he expects is to be thrust into a bitter conflict between alchemists, with the future of civilization hanging in the balance.

    Includes:
    • In-depth story, bringing back old-school RPG storytelling through a unique cast of characters.
    • An innovative combat system with chained abilities.
    • Dark/Cold environment, with rich, vibrant colors.
