So for a few years now i've been part of a game dev project and we've slowly refined this game more and more and more (and more...). We need some help with the finishing touches. And that's where you guys come in now.
If my all caps has drawn your attention and by odd chance you're also capable of creating sprite art BOY DO WE NEED TO TALK. I have infinite faith in the crowd here on Newgrounds so i'm hoping to get to talk to a lot of really neat people. So by all means, leave a post here, or pm me. I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.
With that said, here is the job posting!
What is Stone and Mana : Legends of the Underverse?
S&M is a turn based strategy board game where players conjure powerful avatars equipped with unique abilities and items to claim dominance and take map objectives.
Who are we?
NONE OF YOUR BU-we're actually a small but dedicated group of developers who have been slaving away at this project for about 3 years now! We've come a very long way with this and we're not going to stop until we're totally happy with the game. This may mean it will take a while for it to come out, but it will come out as glorious as we envision it.
What do we need?
We need somebody who is well versed in sprite graphics. What we need is to take the illustrations of our avatars and represent them on the board game. The sprites need to have various animations (idle, take damage, cast spell, etc). And naturally they must do this in all 8 directions of the board game.
How big does the sprites have to be?
The avatars should be relatively large as we want to have them look good when scaled down. Example totes attached at the bottom
Who are we looking for?
We're looking for anybody who knows their business and loves their craft. Somebody accountable and who can deliver work on time. We don't need you to have had 20 years AAA experience or have gone through 10 years of education. Somebody serious, somebody talented and ready to put in the time. Naturally this is somebody we want to build a long term working relationship with since the game will be very regularly updated and new avatars (and their respective skins) will need to be addressed as well. We are also seeking someone with imaginative style and are familiar with sprite styles from past games like Final Fantasy Tactics or Pox Nora and is able to find a nice middle ground with our current aesthetics.
Okay, so what are you paying?
Literally the million dollar question (but we're not paying a million dollars). Since we develop this as resources build up we do not have a set budget planned. We would like to hear from you what your rates would be, some examples of your work. But make no mistake, this would be a paying gig.
There we have it. Thanks for reading!
