Indie team seeking a multiple positions for first-person horror title


https://www.coldpizza-studios.com/
MULTIPLE POSITIONS WANTED [Rev-Share]: Cold Pizza is seeking multiple positions for a first-person horror title.

Synopsis:
“A middle-aged Historian and his wife move to an isolated Summer Home to recover from a past grief, but when
his wife goes missing, the Historian finds himself fighting for his life and his sanity as he is assailed by a mysterious
figure in the woods”

**The Project: **First person narrative driven walking simulator built in UE4. The gameplay is simple (in the vein of Layers of Fear
or P.T., mechanically speaking). The player travels through the game, getting to know the game’s interesting story and world while
something might lurk behind the corner.

We work towards making the game have quality rather than quantity. This means that the game is fairly short considering the
standards of a modern game but which also gives us more time focusing on making an immersive world with attachable characters.
The aim is to have a “movie like” experience, that grabs the player and leaves a him/her thinking and discussing the meaning and
theories of what really happened.

Our team is looking to fill the following positions for the pre-production and/or production phases: CO-Designer,
Environment Concept Artist, Character Animator, Programmer/Blueprinter and 3D Artist (specifics for each position below).

The game is relatively small in scope – large enough to be significant in a portfolio, small enough to be viable with a team working
part time at a steady, structured pace. To be clear, no one on the team is being paid either salary or lump sum, though any revenue
generated will be shared. That said, the projected has been specifically designed to be carried out with a small number of hours
invested each week over a long period of time, as we cannot expect anyone to spend considerable time on a project that doesn’t
involve pre-defined pay. Correspondingly, this is largely designed as a portfolio piece for those who are serious about the industry
but don’t yet have the work experience for more highly compensating and competitive positions. All positions are flexible and there
are no strict deadlines thus making self motivation the primary focus for each member.

I was wondering if you guys had the position of music composer filled already or not? I’m not a great sound designer but wasn’t sure if you were lumping those two together in this post or not.
