Game Development Team Recruitment/Volunteering

Thread Rules
  • Provide as much relevant information as possible
    Whether you are recruiting or looking for work, you must provide as much relevant information as possible. If you are recruiting a team member, provide information about your team (who is on it, what they do, etc.) and what game you are (or will) be working on. If you are looking for work, state what you can do and what you're looking to do. In both cases, you should give examples of what you've done previously.
  • Don't repeat your advert
    Once your advert has been made, you shouldn't repost it again later. If something changes (such as a position being filled), you can edit the advert to reflect it - you should not make a new post about it.
    If, and only if, your last recruitment post is at least 6 months old, you may delete the old post and make a new one reflecting your progress and new needs. Ensure that you delete your old post first, to avoid cluttering up this thread.
  • No conversation
    This thread is for adverts only. There is no need for any kind of discussion. This includes answering adverts.

Advert Templates
Below are templates for you to use when making an advert. You must include all the details listed. If you cannot, then you can't make an advert and it will be deleted without warning.

Recruiting a Team Member

Team name: TBA
Team Leader: DaSpirit
Current Members: Rocket-Dock, xAlien95 (deviantArt), Pokemon-Diamond (deviantArt)
Current Game title: Pokemon RisingEmerald
Current progress made: We are currently in progress of rewriting the game engine. Not much progress is made so far in terms of programming the actual game. We have a working 3D overworld and a textbox engine so far (I started programming 5 days ago).
Position(s) needed: Spriter
Timezone: Any will do. I live in the US, while the other team members live in Europe.
Preferred Method of contact: Skype(preferred), MSN
Link to your PC thread: Link (This project was renamed to Pokemon RisingEmerald and we are restarting it)
Additional info: We are looking for spriters who would sprite anything, including Overworlds, Tiles, and Menus. Right now, we want to change the overall style of the game to make it a unique remake. One of the things we want to do is to increase the resolution, so tiles would have to be 2x bigger. We also want to have bigger OWs as part of the new style. The game is in 3D (similar to BW) and is being created in GameMaker 8. Our team uses a shared folder on Dropbox so we can easily upload resources and a group chat on Skype to keep in contact.
Note: Still looking as of 7/17/12!

Team Name: Team Special Adventures (See what I did there?)
Team Leader: TheAgentBrandon
Current Members: Me.
Current Game Title: Pokemon: Indigo Showdown (Based off the Pokemon Kanto Manga)
Current Progress Made: I've made a lot of maps and cut scenes. I have done this all the way up to the completion of the first Pokemon Gym in Pewter City. If you need proof of my progress check my YouTube videos in my thread for the game.
Positions needed: I'm in dire need of a spriter. Someone who can help me out with cut scenes for the game would also be nice (You'd need experience with RPG Maker XP for this).
Timezone: Central Time. Your timezone is not a concern to me though.
Preferred Contact Method: PM me on this site or send me an email. ([email protected]) I check both of these everyday. But I do check PokeCommunity more often so I do prefer this the most. :)
Additional Information: If you are worried about how dedicated I am for this project it should NOT be a concern. I've worked on this project for 2 weeks and I already 5 rounds/40 completed in the manga (So if you do the math I'm 1/8 done with the game). If you are my spriter I won't be asking for to much so if you're worried about having to use all your free time on this, don't be. :) I would like a scripter just for the fact that I don't know everything there is to know about making cut scenes. So though it is not as needed as spriters it would still be really, really appreciated. Thanks for reading!
Link to my thread:
This thread includes some screenshots, but you can really see the progress I've made by looking at the YouTube videos. Okay guys, thanks for reading. I don't want this fan game to be like a good majority of them and to be given up on. I work 3-4 hours on this everyday and hope to have it completed by Winter Break (I might be to ambitious about this, but hey a man can dream can't he? :) )

Prior to joining requirements: If you want to join and help the development team out,there are somethings we have to consider....
-Have a open mind to anything and everything that comes to you,we will be making Pokemon games that are to some quite strange and maybe even odd or something that has never been thought of yet, We are open to the possibilitys of thinking differently to make games differently...

-I or another person in the team will screen ya so see if you do have the skills for to job that The Pokemon Improvement Project needs,which mean...Examples of your work are needed

We also just got started with Pokemon Battle Network so we dont have much progress othern then me drawing out concepts with my bad art skills and another member wanting to make some change as well as a challenge for his programming skills....
Im also writing the story for it but when I need some help with some beta readers(people who can fix spelling errors and slight edits as well)and help me out on the story...Ill edit this post to reflect this.

This post is subject to change without noticed as more people are required for help on the project, please be aware of this.

Thank you for your help! Your help will make many Pokemon fans happy in the end!
