Seeking Talented Blueprint/C++ programmer and Animator for House of Demons

ATMOSPHERE:

The game will have a very serious and dark atmosphere to it.

STORY:

On night you get a a strange text on your cell phone from an unknown phone number. The message is just a house address. The address looks familiar but you don’t remember. You and your girlfriend decided to drive out there. Upon arriving you discover a massive mansion, the mansion of a large family that was reported missing only days ago. Upon entering the mansion you bot start to experience strange things and weird noises, you also think you see things moving in the darkness. As you both explore a little, you run into the slasher who chases you into a room. You later find out that the mansion was built to seal a hole leading to hell long ago. The people who own the mansion are related to biblical characters that have devoted their lives to keeping the hole sealed. The hole allows demons to enter the world in a physical body, which would allow them to take over the surface world.

OTHER DETAILS:

In the game you will be able to craft items and you will need to eat and sleep to stay alive. You will be able to barricade yourself in any room you choose in the mansion, each room has its own perks such as item storage, amenities etc.

  2. Thin Man - This demon has a habit of hiding behind objects and grabbing the player.

Day and night cycle

I dont believe a day and night cycle needs much explaining, i’ts pretty obvious what it does :slight_smile:

Physics Furniture

What you see in the photo is placeholder furniture made into physics assets. The furniture is movable so the player can use them to block doorways to slow down and prevent demons from entering their base.

Simple AI

We have a very simple AI at the moment. It randomly wanders around and gives chase to the player when it spots them.

Stamina and Inventory System

The stamina and inventory system have been implemented as well, however there is a slight hiccup with the inventory system, the jigsaw grid does not show up when the stamina system is activated.

Small walkthrough video. I cant reference the video locally for some reason so you’ll just have to follow the link, sorry about that.

It looks Like you arent making progress here and haven’t been in days. Maybe you should consider [CONTRACT/PAID] or check out other forums for developers such as Indiedb.

Hi, unfortunately I cannot afford to offer a paid position to anyone. I have posts on 3 other forums, but I mainly post here for Programmers and blueprint programmers. I’m going to keep posting until i find someone though, no matter how long it takes.

Added an early rendering of the crawler!

still need programmers and animators who can rig characters.

Need animators who can also rig characters!

Updated the positions and team area, now we just need a programmer!

Hi, Thank you for the offer, I will keep you in mind when we come to that point.

Looking for blueprint programmers! no need for C++. You will be helping to make the AI more advanced, fixing already existing blueprint systems etc.

Looking for Sound designers!

Still need a sound designer. Must have experience creating a variety of sounds including but not limited to, UI sounds, Enviornment sounds, object sounds, etc.

still need sound designers.

Still need a sound designer!

Still in need of a sound designer for House of Demons, we’re making good progress and need sounds.

hello

maybe you should change the thread title, it says you need a blueprinter/c++ programmer, but it seems you already have it and need a sound designer, so, should change to it to attract the correct ppl here.

good luck

Hi, I forgot about that thank youf ro reminding me, I changed it.

hehe, I mean in the thread title: “Thread: Seeking Talented Blueprint/C++ programmer and Animator for House of Demons”
