Outsourcing Team - 3D Simulation

Hi All,

 

This isn't an advert exactly - but my company is looking to outsource our 3D programming tasks to a highly skilled outsourcing team.  Our product is not a game per-say.  It is more in line with 3D simulation and is built on top of an existing 3D game engine.

 

Has anyone had experience with this? Can anyone recommend a highly skilled outsourcing company that specialises in developing 3D apps using computational geometry, writing shaders and with a working knowledge of opengl and multiple 3D game engines?

 

Have been looking around but no luck so far - Any feedback would be much appreciated.

 

Cheers!

 

Simon

Just to be clear:

 

Are you looking for an individual who can do it, or are you looking for a company who can do it?

 

Are you looking to pay an hourly wage, or piece work, or looking to fund a large business project?

 

What nations or regions are you considering?

Thanks for your response.  it's ongoing - 3-6 months initially, maybe 12 months and longer depending on budget.  

 

We're looking for a team maybe 5-10 devs to work on our in-house software product - large(ish) scale.

 

We're open to different nations.  Although we're Aussie based so somewhere in line with our time zone is preferable

Get in touch with the GDAA - they're the local industry representatives, who's job is to know/support everyone. I'm sure Tony would be happy to forward on details about your situation throughout the local industry for you in order to help you find someone suitable. There's quite a few small local studios that are available for work-for-hire. Disclaimer: I'm one of the small studios that's picked up work that's been shopped around this way :D

 

While working at some of the larger studios here, I've experienced them taking on mining/defense/training simulation work alongside their main games business, and at the small end of town as an independent start-up, I see the same thing!

3-6 months sounds overly optimistic to me.
Anyway, you can look for teams in the Classifieds here, and http://www.gamasutra.com/contractors/contractor_display.php
and even Wikipedia's list of video game developers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_game_developers)
To narrow the list, look for location first, or look for specialty first (you said 3D simulation). Or
start with what games are similar to yours, find out who developed those, call them, and if they aren't
interested or available, ask them for leads.
