    Hey guys! I'm looking to bring some more team members into our game ‘’Remnants of Ardrus’’.
    [​IMG]


    What is RoA?
    RoA is a traditional story driven RPG full of adventures, world exploration and choice. You can check out the current state of the game at:
    https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/inde...-of-ardrus-jan-2018-update-please-vote.38972/

    Key planned features of the project:

    • Rich and immersive main story for around 15 hours of gameplay with multiple possible endings
    • Great variety of side content lasting around 15 hours
    • A variety of minigames from fishing to boxing.
    • Multitude of missions ranging from Dialog based quests and puzzles to stealth based missions.
    • Adaptive battle system based on equipped items
    • Beautiful graphics based on PVG assets
    • Pixel based movement
    • Cutscene cinematics (similar to Witcher 1)
    Why join us?:
    - The game is in development for well over 2 years.
    - We invest a great deal of our time and real money into the project and we are super motivated to finish it.
    Our planned release time is somewhere during spring 2019.
    - We are now a team of 6 members all of whom are very active, some of whom like Guiguimu and Branded Tales are very active members of this community.
    - We are a small and friendly development team which is open to new ideas and people even with little experience. We believe that any idea is valuable and any skill can be learnt if needed.
    - A 5 hour early alpha demo build is available already (to team members).

    Commercial Aspirations Please Note:
    The game may end up commercial but currently I am not in a financial position to offer an immediate payment (usual reasons: wife, kids mortgage etc..). If it does go commercial I will gladly pay a percentage based on your input.

    If you are an artist and interested in paid work pm me. Also, I occasionally post in the classified requests so keep an eye out there but I will not be advertising those here.


    What am I looking for:
    Cutscene Artist: 0 of 1 filled.
    I'm looking for someone who can draw pictures that we can use for cutscene cinematics in our game. These pictures will be things like backgrounds, characters fighting, marching armies, character deaths and so on.

    It doesn't have to be very complex but it does have to go well with the PVGames realistic art style. A few approximate examples of what we seek:

    I know this is a HUGE ask on a potentially free game but if you are interested get in touch. It would be hugely appreciated.

    Level Designer: 1 of 2 Filled!
    Big games require a lot of maps and we are hoping to add a second map designer to our team. You will be working with myself and the teams other level designer to create a large variety of gorgeous maps, sometimes interior, sometimes exterior but always fun (hopefully).

    Although the experience is not essential, the mapper will benefit from being comfortable with working with parallax maps, doodads and in particular with PV Games assets as PV assets are much harder to use than normal assets. Don't worry if you feel you're not very skilled. Even if you simply want to try doing something new and unfamiliar, you are welcome. Any help is appreciated and we will help to improve your skills wherever possible.
    An approximate level of our in game map quality can be found in the screenshot section.

    I should also say if you are interested in this position you will have to own the PV assets.

    Samples:

    COMPOSERS: 1 of 2 Filled!
    Composing music is my own hobby too but unfortunately, I'm too busy to handle it alone so would love to bring a new composer on board to handle the burden. Generally, you'll be getting hit with a description of the area/scene you are composing for and you'll have free reign to do what you like.

    Good VST's are pretty much a must as they will have to match the standard of my current ones (East West Composer Cloud) to keep things consistent.

    TESTERS:
    We are always looking for testers who can either test casually or be as thorough as they like. If you are willing to play through a game that would be amazing. (Testers unfortunately cannot be offered a % of any money if we do go commercial, mainly because there has already been so many but we will gladly offered a free copy of the game you've tested already:))

    That will make us a more productive team so things should move along quickly. If interested drop me a pm or ask any questions below.

    It looks really interesting. I like the mapping.
    I wouldn't mind testing it, are you still looking for testers?

    Again new positions open. Looking to bring in one artist and 3 or so new testers!

    Testers need to be willing to play through entire demo (about 5-7 hours). The reports don't have to be hugely detailed but the more detailed the better. So if you are happy just playing through and reporting any glaring errors you're as welcome as someone who tests every tiny detail and every tile.

    Hello, my name is Lando and I would like to help compose music for your game, below you can view my music portfolio. The majority of what I showcase are music for retro style games but I am quite confident in my orchestral, sound design and mixing/mastering abilities, I took college classes and learned music theory and have many types of instruments and various VSTs that i could use such as strings, brass, woodwind, percussion, synths, and other synth instruments that i have created myself. I have heard some tracks for the RoA OST and I feel like I would be a great fit. If you would like to test me and give me an idea for a song I would gladly compose one for you.

    I could test in my free time (because my art and music skills suck).
