Looking For Talented Individuals For A Pirate 2D Platformer Project

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello all,

I am currently looking for talented individuals to aid in the development of a pirate-themed 2D Platformer

A bit about the game:

This will be a 2D platformer built in Unity for PC. It will be scripted in C#. As for other programs that will be used for art/animation, I am open to a discussion from the team. I have been using Photoshop and After Effects for the initial prototyping, but this is no way set in stone

In terms of art style, we have quite a bit of concept art done already. Again, nothing permanent and if you are asked to join the team you will be able to voice your concerns should you wish to change something. That being said, we are currently looking at a brightly colored, cartoony styled game set primarily on the beach/docks or in caves.

The design is looking at going one of two ways:

  1. Puzzle style: where each level is a challenge with enemies and difficult layouts that require thinking in order to reach the end
  2. Survival: Think Zombieville USA (the old mobile game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvfVDczQXOY). Just try to reach the end of the level before dying. Each level there are more and more enemies. This would include a weapon upgrade system and infinite levels in which enemy spawns are algorithmically generated.
One of these will be chosen in the following weeks as we approach the construction of a finalized prototype
Our team is currently in search of the following:
  • Character Artists
  • Background Artists
  • Asset Artists
  • Writers
  • Animators
  • Engineers/Programmers (C#)

If you feel you can fit one or multiple of these roles please feel free to respond to this post or private message me.

Right now, the main goal is to get a prototype up and running. Should this be accomplished, we can look at researching the possibility of starting a Kickstarter and marketing campaign. That being said, for the time being, this is a hobby-project and all work is unpaid. Just done out of the love for video games and the passion to make something cool :) Should it move past that we will obviously discuss monetary benefits.

Hello Magi98,

I am interested in your project and would like to support as a programmer. I have some experience with small hobby projects in Unity and can imagine working on the project. I want to gain experience first and have no financial interests.
