Greetings fellow Game Enthusiasts,
Who am I?
My name is Travis, Founder of BlackHeart Studios an Indie Development studio designed to learn and explore the aspects of game development. I have prior history with Unity3D and moved onto Unreal Engine as my new platform for development. I have 1 Programmer, due to his real job will not be available for this project.
**What can i do? **
I am a Terrain/Level Designer coming from years of Unity3D Development. Also, i have been a project manager for several small indie projects for fun and experience. I have studied Game Design and participated in several projects as a sit-in observer (Student Learner) in an XNA studio. (few other small studios as well)
What I am here for?
Currently i am building a small team to work on a project based off the Shooter Game example. This project will modify the game and its components to suit the needs of the desired result of the final project.
I would like to acquire the skills of 5 individuals in the following categories
2 Programmers (c++ or blueprint experience) (prefer both)1 for UI and 1 for Gameplay
1 Modeler (asset designer) I use mixamo to create and rig characters. I have no limit to the number of characters we can use. (They will need equipment, objects to interact with, etc)
1 Animator (Simple animations First and Third Person) Animator will be focused on the first and third person animations for weapons and interactions with objects. Also to animate small interactive objects.
1 Web Developer (sole responsibility is to design the website for the project)Web Design and maintenance, Community Development, and other Web type things.
The Project! “Thin Grey Line”
As i am a Disabled Marine Veteran, I have a wealth of experience and knowledge in regards to combat, survival, and (lots of video games).
This project seeks to combine these three things into a First/Third Person Shooter/Survival/Game. The player versus everybody else, or to cooperate and survive whilst making the game your own. Our Theme for this game will be set on an Island (almost complete) off the Coast of who knows where. (Behind Enemy Lines) The island will be limited to its inhabitants (the not so friendly kind) Other players will be those of your team (separated in a plane crash) Rogue Agents (others seeking the wealth of the island) Other foreign Militants (you get the idea).
I chose to create this project out of passion for games of similar Genre (Battlefield, Call of Duty, ARMA) and the Survival Genre.
If you wish to learn more about this project and its future you can contact me…
