Hello! :D
Welcome to Hidden Trace recruitment thread!
It's a small project I'm working on right now.

I've created the general concept, some artwork and music assets, and creating the game mechanic.
Unfortunately, the game progression itself is very minimal.
Because I primarily focus on creating the assets.
So I guess I need some help.

Let's go straight to the topic then.

Engine
RPG Maker MV

Play Time
Roughly 1-2 hours

Synopsis

Being immortal must be a beautiful thing. Enjoying the pleasure of life eternally, without the fear of death.
No.
Gale, a former treasure hunter who become a vampire, knows all too well the dark side of being immortal.

One snowy day, he met the Master of Time.
A glimpse of his past flows through his memory...
He remembered the time when he drank the Vampire's Blood to become an immortal.

Gale asked the Master of Time to send himself to the past.
He wanted to kill his past self before he get a chance to drink the vampire's blood.
Can he do it?

*Okay, maybe that's not the best kind of synopsis. But you get the idea.
If you want to know more about this project, see the game's thread here.


Roles Needed

Mapper (filled)
Honestly I already created some maps.
Your role here is to create the remaining maps and (if you are able to) beautifying the existing maps.
How to apply:
PM me with at least 4 map screenshots consist of 1 world map, 1 outside, 1 inside, and 1 dungeon. (the more the better)
You can use RTP or custom tileset for the examples.
If you are using the custom one, make sure you're allowed to use it legally.

Monster Designer (filled)
I've made some monsters. But I'd love some help from you.
Create interesting monsters using the available graphics, designing the fighting pattern and the skills.
How to apply:
PM me with at least 3 monster designs and 1 boss. Explain about the monsters strength, weakness, fighting pattern, and skills.
Follow this template:
-Monster Name
-Strength
-Weakness
-Fighting Pattern
-Skills (explain about the monster skills in detail)


Optional Roles
The optional roles are resource-based. I do realize making resources is not an easy task.
So only apply if you are truly interested with the project.

GUI Maker (filled)
I've made some part of custom battle GUI and custom windowskin.
Your role is to create the remaining GUI for the game. (menu and title GUI for example)

Icon Maker
Create custom icons for the game

Battleback Maker
I need battlebacks that can fit my character's art style and fitting for the maps

Tileset Artist (Highly Optional) (filled, but still open)
Doing tileset recolors or small edits.
I noticed the RTP tileset is lacking an atmospherical element.
With its wild choice of colors, it doesn't seem really cohesive too.
The tileset artist role is to make the RTP tileset more atmospheric and cohesive-looking.

Spriter (Highly Optional)
Create unique sideview battlers for the characters. There are 4 characters in-game.
If you are up to the task, I will give you an example of what I want to create

How to apply for the optional roles:
Send me a PM with at least 3 examples of your work.


*Note regarding recruitment:
Regardless of the recruitment state, I will try my best to keep progressing and at least finish a demo.
But I will open this recruitment as long as there are still roles to fill.

**Note regarding the applications:
I will notify you as soon as I receive your applications.
But I will review your applications before I can decide whether you are able to join the team or not.
So give me some time before I make the conclusions.

***Note regarding credits:
I will credit your username and your real name (if I am allowed to)

My Roles


Project Manager
Managing the game's progression

Artist
Create artworks for the game

Composer
Composing the soundtracks for the game

Puzzle Maker
Creating puzzles on the maps

Eventer
Creating cutscenes and events in general


Current Team
@Vincent Chu - Writer
@OnlyMe_ - Monster Designer
@HexMozart88 - GUI Maker
@Leon Kennedy - Tileset Artist
@cradth - Mapper

One more thing.
Although this is an unpaid project, I will give you some special rewards :D

Reward
I will create special resource pack (arts and music) only for the Hidden Trace team members. The number of contents will be decided by how well the project goes. (of course there are additional contents for optional roles)

The reward is available once the project is done.
In case you're curious about my arts and music, open these links:
Check my artworks here.
Check my music here.

Oh, and I have to give special thanks to @Vincent Chu for his willingness to join the project as a writer, even before this thread was started. Thank you very much, Vincent Chu!

So that's it guys!
If you're interested to join, you can PM me straight away or leave some comments below.
You can also ask questions or feedbacks on the comment section.
Thank you in advance and happy new year! (although it's kinda late to say it xD)
Best wishes for all of you :D

Are you looking for any assistance with writing (like dialogue) or just editing/proofreading, etc.? I saw that you put you will be working on events, so perhaps not. Thank you!

I already have a writer, so I don't know if I'd need another one.
But maybe you can help to proofread and beta-testing. How about it? :D

I can assist you with the maps, but I can't promise you
to do the whole game maps though. I'll PM you tonight with
some map screenshots attached, inside/outside/worldmap/dungeon.

Thank you!
It's not the whole game, because I've made several maps too.
And the amount of maps in the whole game itself is not much, because it's a short game.

Looking forward to see your maps :D

Hmm as long as it's just recolors and small edits to RTP tileset I'm in. Just need what you want done told to me and a time line which i hope is a fairly long timeline lol. If you view my thread I think I'm more than qualified for the part.

Thank you for joining, @Leon Kennedy. :D

@Frogboy
Thanks! :)

Since it's bumped already, I might mention that the roles for
battleback maker, icon maker, and spriter are still open.

I've counted the numbers of battleback required for the entire game, and it's likely 7 battlebacks.
Haven't counted the required icons, but to be sure, it's not the entire set of 300 icons. (that's way too much)
The number of spriteset for the entire game is still the same, which is 4.

I think it's a good idea to share the battle demonstration here too. :D

Hello! I hope you read this. I'm really looking for places to prove my experience with mapping. Could you maybe have a second mapper? Usually dev teams have two. If not thats fine. I'm just desperatly trying to find work, and NOBODY needs mapping.

Haired slime? Trying some different styles of art. Maybe I can make some resources with this new kind of painting.......
i love my game very much
Uh, I'm probably overthinking this, but I think that some of my music sounds kinda...bad?
The melodies are just sort of awkward, and don't flow.
I'm really not sure what to do. Why am I even worrying about this? I don't even have a battle system yet!
And the Lord said, let there be lighting effects! And there were lighting effects! And it was good...ish? Might tweak this some more.
Today was a day of good things! Thank you fate! I pray to the darkness that those that read this will enjoy a good day as well! Power to the gam mak.
