I have been working in industry as a games tester for the past 2 years since graduating university (First Class Honors in Computer Games Design).
My next goal is to either create my own game or get a job as a developer. I now want to work on my own game in my spare time. I miss the creative side of games development and want to get back into Unreal Engine 4 and start learning again and gaining experience. This would also be a great opportunity to add to any portfolios.
I am looking for like minded people, who would also like to work on a brand new project and see it come to life. Learn and share knowledge with one another and see a project to the end.
I am currently looking for the following roles:
- Network programmer (Setting up of dedicated servers, replication of player animations and inventories etc).
- Artists (Mainly 3D but U.I. and concept art is also desired).
- Animator (Rigging of character and custom animations, weapon animations etc).
- Designer (Level design, mechanics, missions etc).
If you have some knowledge in one of the above, as long as you are dedicated, willing to learn and put in the time, this could be a great fit for you. Like I say, looking to learn along the way myself so any help is appreciated.
Some similar types of games I would like to take inspiration from are Rust, Escape from Tarkov, DayZ. I by no means want to be one of them “Oh great, another survival game” flops.
I want to create a realistic, fun experience for the hardcore survival game genre fans out there.
If this sounds like something you are interested in, please get in touch. I have a general idea on how I want the game to work and can discuss in further detail.
