@KatyaStec,

We appreciate your kind words. Your Voice Work is Incredible. In fact, we’re seeking a Female Voice Actor to announce Power Activation, Weapon Selection, Target Locks, Warnings and other Status Changes to the Player similar to this and this. but, with a greater range announcements to support a minimal GUI design philosophy. It’s our version of HALO’s Master Chiefs Cortana, with no body. LOL. Please stop by our **Live Game Dev Discussion **to meet the team whenever convenient.

Look forward to working you.

Sincerely,

Interesting.

Do you have a playblast of a work in progress video?
Being royalty based what is the expected development cycle time frame?

Do you need any help with blueprints. I am decent with BP and can program ai with behavior trees. And many systems like an do system, health, hunger, thirst, etc;

@FrankieV

Thank you for your interests. I also want to thank you for the amazing DAZ3D YouTube tutorials. We intend to use DAZ3D in our Character development.

At present there are no demo videos published as we’re developing in a closed environment. We can work to setup a private screening, lets discuss here.

Our estimated development cycle timeframe is 1.5 years. We’re Two months into it.

looks awesome. Great concept, and youve got a team that can get the ball rolling faster. A natural environment isnt always great for sci fi. I would look at some other scifi games environments, and try to do some alien like vegetation, and skies. Ive been burned out on sci fi games for the moment. Not my cup of tea, but support your endeavor. Add some vehicles, land mines, and an alien environment and i’ll pick up the game to play.

Hello @thadkinsjr. Thank you for the kinds words and support. Its a near-future sci-fi that takes place on Earth. As ORIONs destroy the environment, it will dynamically and gradually transition to post-apocalyptic theme. There are Mutations planned that will be in the form Plants and Animals that can give a Alien-world feel.

@TechLord thats good. I played the first destiny and some warframe. They were ok. Most of the the futuristic games arent so great anymore. Destiny, mass effect, warframe etc have been on the decline. Hope yours stands apart.

Looking great. All the best of luck :slight_smile:

Is there any chance that you guys would allow me to stay on the side and watch how your team works? I am looking to put together a team and I would like to observe how the positions work together. Thanks, Owen.

Hi Owen,

Unfortunately our development is closed and we aggressively remove non-productive devs. Managing a Team is a lot of work, especially if your developing too. If you’re just going to jump in a build a team, be prepared to manage chat server, source control, planner, collaborative documents, and weekly online meetings. If you have no budget, be prepared for perpetual recruitment campaign as Devs to come and go. Only a select will stay and these individuals will be highly motivated and make progress because they believe in the game concept. My experience says recruiting Architecture-centric Level Designers, Animator, and Concept Artist are rare to recruit. If you don’t want to repeat a lot of information, be prepared to job aids/tutorials. I would encourage you to join a pre-existing team that can use your skillset to get a feel for how a team is managed.

Yep. Thats exactly what i’m experiencing atm. We just have to keep on, regardless the conditions^^

We’re seeking UI/UX Artist/Animator/Designer familiar with Diegetic User Interface Design to assist in the development of a Simulated Augmented Reality User Interface. The UI will feature a mix of Canvas, UMG 2D, 2.5D, and 3D Assets. We’re open to ideas and experimentation.

Interested Parties, Lets chat live. Thanks for your time.
