Hello my friends,
I am creating 1 nice video game and I am looking for a nice graphics designer who is able to create game graphics.
First , I will tell you 1 little story before I will ask if there is someone who is interesting to help me.
I am creating 1 role playing game (A dungeon crawler particularly).
I was a fun of the video game "Eye of the Beholder" and I had played it in 1992 , I played all of its series and I was interesting to create a remake. I started to study how the mechanics of the game work and I was programmed a complete new engine from scratch. Initially I was intended to use the name "Eye of the Beholder 4" , but after a research I was made, I discovered the companies which made the initial game went out of business and the game used some spacial game rules from books and novels of "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" Which were property of Wizards of the Coast. I got in contact with them to ask permission of the usage of the title "Eye of the Beholder 4" but they wasn't allowed it because was trademark. Also use some logos and names from fiction characters. So I decided to change my game rules , characters names and even the title too. I started to program my own new engine since 1996 and now I have one almost complete game engine more advanced than the old one. But I need graphics.
I am looking for a designer who is capable to create such a graphics. I am intend to send my game to the indiegogo.com and to fundeverything.com which I will try to raise a serious fund for hire the graphic designers. And other designers which will be needed such as , voice actors , or music and sound composers and animators.
The game use special graphics and I would like to keep the feeling of the original "Eye of the Beholder" stile and game play. The graphics must be in medieval , Gothic design. For now I don't have the money for the project , I am the programmer , this work is not a direct work. Sending a game to indiegogo or other crowd funding platform , needs some demo for the players to play before contribute. So I will not ask for the designer to create 1000s of graphics (Yes the game needs lots of graphics) but I will ask to create the basic graphics for the creation of the demo , which will published in crowd funding campaign.
The most important things for the game are the game interface , the wallsets(Is very important I will discuss about this) , some character portraits , the player status panel , few pictures of places and few monsters.
These are enough for the creation of the first demo , I will need much more graphics and I will not ask the designer to create everything at once and I will not put deadlines.
You can download one nice playable demo to see my engine and what I have created so far and what I am looking for the designer.
Download from Box.com (Cloud storage)
This demo was for the game "Eye of the Beholder 4". The next demo will be little different. I have decided to change the name to "The Dark lord Beholder" which I will use , and some different interface and graphics , removing some of the old one and adding lots of new. The game must be new and unique/
Any designer who will be interested to take part in this project and who is capable to design these graphics , I am intent to put the designer in my team or be a part of a team I am going to create here. As I said at the beginning , I don't have the money to create this project , I am the programmer and I am missing the designers from the team. I am alone for now and I am looking for the team.
There are another 4 projects which I am going to create here after the completion of this one. Look it as future opportunity. Yes I know you don't know me , I know none of the designers will remain unpaid , I know the graphics design work is hard and is more about talent , I am programmer and I have stayed 20 hours to fix this stubborn bug :P
Programmers can't draw :(
I know you will put lots of work and I have already wrote 150000 lines of code for this engine and more than 1000000 lines of code until improve my engine and I have to write lots of code yet.
But, I have created some few graphics here , or changing existing one , but I can't create graphics like , buildings , places , towns , people or monster animations from scratch or cinematics.
If you are the one who will be interesting to be part of my team , we can split the profits of the game. The game is going to be a commercial game which will be sell in gaming platforms like "Steam Powered" Also in the future they will be ported for Linux and Mac Os. The other projects which will be created , can be published and in android too.
Some of the projects will be for "Windows operating system only" other will be for android.
There is one file with screenshots.
Look it as a future business and business have and risks too. :)
We can partner together.
PS: The budget number will be raised from the crowd funding campaign
