    [CONTRACT/ROYALTY] Feudal Japanese (Greenlit) Needs UI/UX Developer

    Project Title:
    Hanako - Soul of the Samurai

    Positions Open
    UI/UX Developer
    Programmer
    (scroll down for preferences, requirements and payment info)


    Description:
    Hanako - Soul of the Samurai journeys through a beautiful, fictional rendition of 16th century Feudal Japan. Players choose between four types of warriors as they learn to master intuitive, directionally-driven swordplay to ensure victory over their foes. Our game features full skill trees per class to boost key stats and choose powerful abilities, engaging multi-map online campaigns and easy to learn but difficult to master combat that seeks to be more than slow gestural combat or simple hack-n-slash.

    The artistic qualities and backstory of the game serve as a symbolic tribute to team lead Matt Canei's late mother, and loved ones lost during the production of the game. The territories and war of the game represent an everlasting struggle of life-and-death, health-and-disease and the natural balance of opposing forces to metaphorically represent real life tragedies and to honor those lost.

    We went on Steam Greenlight on January 28th, 2015 and were Greenlit within 9 days with nearly record-breaking statistics on the campaign.

                    Which position is open?
                    They broke the signatures so I removed mine thinking it'd be awhile. The signatures work again, but I haven't redone my signature yet.

                      Sorry UX Developer (UMG blueprinting/UI coding) is the preferred position, though if you're awesome at something and are interested in a different role we're open to chatting.

                            We have re-opened this position. We're releasing to Early Access this year and need a dev experienced with UMG to help push our cart to that first major milestone. We are greenlit, have many game professionals on our team and have a pretty high quality game for no budget.
