    C# programmer looking for a team.

    Please check our project http://nanoforge.net/ and join http://nanoforge.net/join
  2. Seeking talent to polish sandbox game [GREENLIT] [UNPAID] [HOBBY] Website | Music | Youtube | IndieDB What is it? Nanoforge , is a first-person, sci-fi sandbox-adventure game, built in Unity (C#). Target: Digital Distribution (Steam, Humble, etc.) What have we accomplished? Greenlit, and approved for distribution on Steam Detailed GDD, narrative, and gameplay documents (27000+ words) to make development simple Established code base: All of the basic gameplay mechanics are in place, and usable! We’ve developed custom tools to make the level creation and modular level design a snap! Proper management: We’ve successfully used project management tools since the project’s inception, that allow us to complete tasks, communicate, and see the big picture. Modular from the start: We’ve developed custom tools to facilitate rapid creation of levels that are rich in detail! Perseverance: The game began (as a concept) in 2011, and has survived transitions between game engines, project management tools, programming languages, business models, and countless Skype calls. Detailed analytics: Every play session is tracked extensively via custom metrics, allowing us to view heatmaps of player movement, monitor enjoyment, and optimize the game to eliminate confusion Music/SFX: Over a dozen tracks posted on our Soundcloud page, as well as several custom SFX, made exclusively for the game. You can play it. Right now. Fully-functioning first-person sandbox gameplay, in fact. What do we offer? Credit in the game’s credits, powerful portfolio pieces and references Committed to the project? Your future employers will hear about it. Welcoming and determined team members: Ever lost track of time and stayed up late creating art? We’re like that. Flexibility: We’ve worked with team members from China, Italy, the U.K., Germany, Canada, the U.S., Poland, Russia, and Libya, in countless time-zones. We value your time, and work to create a consensus for all meeting times, so everyone is equally grumpy. Consistency: We’ve easily passed our hundredth sprint review/planning Skype call. Simple, efficient tools: In-house tools empower you to produce art that looks fantastic, whether in-game or on news sites. Industry experience: Over half of our contributors have worked on major titles in the past, or have had professional development experience, including work on titles such as Deus Ex: Human Revolution,Thief, and Halo 2. A path into the industry: Former Nanoforge devs now work at Epic Games, Turn10, Microsoft Studios, Eidos, Ubisoft and more. Presence at prominent game conventions, including PAX South, PlayOnCon, EGX Rezzed, and PAX East. We are part of the 5%: Virtually all remote-work-based game projects fail within the first six months. We didn’t. What do we need? C# Programmers C# experience required Prior experience with Unity a plus Communication skills Note: Other programmers, LEVEL DESIGNERS, and writers are also invited to apply! JOIN NOW FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Where’s the gameplay footage? Just as AAA studios do, we keep our gameplay footage closely guarded, as it reveals our innovative take on sandbox gameplay. Additionally, releasing pre-release footage with non-final visuals could confuse potential players into believing that the footage is of the final version of the game. Sorry. How does the game compare to games like GMod or Minecraft? We’ve surpassed Minecraft’s Creative Mode in terms of functional features, and are closest to Garry’s Mod in terms of feature set. Any questions? Ask away!

Minimal revisions required: We use a multi-stage process to minimize revisions to work, making development far more efficient!

That said, here's a tiny look at our teleport effect. How does the game compare to games like GMod or Minecraft? We've surpassed Minecraft's Creative Mode in terms of functional features, and are closest to Garry's Mod in terms of planned feature set. I'm not experienced enough to join this project. That's not a question! There's always a place on our team for someone passionate about game development. Willing to learn? Any questions? Ask away!
