Emberheart ARPG looking to expand Art team! Current open positions: Concept Artist, 3D Character Artist and 3D Environment Artist
Emberheart started as a passion project of a solo developer. The game has been in development for 3 years. I’ve had contact with a first small publisher and they said the game has potential but needs to improve on look and feel, basically some Art and the UI need to improve. Recently a Story writer and a music composer joined the team to beef up those areas of the game. Now I am looking to expand the team for the Art side of things as I’m mostly a programmer. I mean, the art is probably good enough to go for a succesful kickstarter campaign, but I want it to live up to its potential and thus the art needs to improve.
The game has been released in Early access and has been received very well. While sales are low, they are according to expectations as I have not done any marketing. The good part, it brings with it some funds to pay freelancers.
Edit: I’ve had contact with another publisher by now, and am very close to getting signed. If I get signed, I’ll be able to pay people very soon. I reworked the entire art of the game and level designs by now. So it’s much closer to it’s potential.
A lot of Sweat, blood and tears went in this project and I’m looking for people that also want to work on a project as a passion. So you are expected to work for 15-25 hours per week, but not more since you probably have a daytime job. Once we get more funds from Early Access release, publisher, Kickstarter or Belgian Game Fund Organization you can expect payment! Maybe not that much at first, but payment will go up as we move along and get more funds.
