I am the leader for a new MMORPG Game Project. I would first like to start out by saying this is an open job which welcomes those who may not be the best, but we ask that you do know what you're doing. This is offered as a learning experience which has a possiblity to become a full-time job. Those who are interested in immediate pay jobs should stop looking now. This is an attempt by myself and other coders and 3D Model Designers and Concept Artists along with a few concept and storyline designers to make an MMORPG and eventually, should the game be successful, release it on a commerical level. I am not personally anywhere near an expert on C/C++ programming, but rather know some very basics and am a team leader who takes interest in programming and gaming and enjoy writing lore. Along with leading this project, I am also one of three who write lore for the intended game.
Before I go too much further into information about this project, I should make it clear that this is a volunteer job for those who are interested in an opportunity to take part in game development from home in their spare time, and work with a professional and organized team of programmers and artists. If and when the game reaches a state of stable completion and good progress, those who put a major effort into the project will have the opportunity at a position in a company which will lead the game and begin looking to join with a publisher in order to mass produce the game. This will be no quick project, and it will require a lot of dedication. If you have spare time and are looking for project, we invite you to apply to one of the positions below where you qualify. Will now continue with the rest of the project information...
Below are a list of currently available positions.
(2) - Sound / Music Developers
(2) - 3D Model Design and Texturing
(4) - C++ Programmers
This is an MMORPG that will be like any other MMORPG, subscriptions and all, should the game's creation turn out to be successful, I do have everything lined up to form a company and put the game into mass production. Meaning, should the game be a success, those who do put great time and effort into the game have an extremely good chance to get something back out of it...something nice .
This isn't going to be a knock-off 2D MMO or anything like that. We have modellers and we're building our own game engine. This is an organized and professional team. We require that all staff be mature and able to work well with other people. We will be releasing an official game website soon and from that website along with here we will continue to post when there are more job openings.
Sound / Music Developers
Sound / Music developers will be in charge of creating the general musics and sounds found throughout the epic game-world. Must be skilled and have be able to provide some examples of sounds they are able to create. Like said, this isn't some kind of runescape sort of MMORPG, this is fully-3D and will require that you make somewhat realistic sounds. Mario-style sounds will not cut it. (Medium Grade Return)
3D Model Design and Texturing
3D Model Designers and Texture Artist will be responsible for creating creatures and character designs along with item, building, and object creation. Those wishing to apply ask a Model Designer we ask that you please provide at least 2 (preferred 3) examples of model/texture work you have done. (High Grade Return)
C++ Programmers will be working across both the Client and the Server side of the project. We don't need many for the server half of the project, we are currently in need mostly for assistant client programmers. Client Programmers will work with building the game's engine and implementing of major features into the game. Experience in coding applications from scratch is needed and you must know about various forums of data encryption and networking protocols (to manage/interpret send and receive data). Experience with the World of Warcraft client in itself is a major bonus as the game engine will be taking off of the World of Warcraft Client. Server programmers need to know pretty much the same materials, only we ask that server programmers be experienced with mySQL Databases as well. (Server Developers: Medium Grade Return // Client Developers: Very High Grade Return)
How to Apply
Those who are interested in applying for any of the positions listed above, please connect to the Emupedia IRC network (irc://emupedia.com) and send a message to Th3Guy. Be sure to include examples of your work and a little bit about yourself. Preferred Alternate ways of contact such as e-mail. Alternatively, you may also send me (th3guy) a private message via these forums or through my email 'mobile.bigthboy --*at-- gmail.com'
This team has already been formed and we are accepting additions to the team. We already do have people working. This IS a young project still, but with dedicated people, we can make this work.
Work created for the Project belongs to myself (Th3Guy) and other project leaders. All staff leaders reserve the right to terminate your position on the team at any time. Failure to check in on a regular basis will result in your removal from the team. Once removed all your access to all files and your ownership of anything will be removed. You automatically agree to the terms that Th3Guy is in full ownership of whatever you produce for the use of the project. Credits will be given to all those who were on the team as of the time of project completion date (which will be decided and announced to the team at the correct time). Very detailed/specific logs will be kept of work put in by various members of the team. Compensation will be awarded according to who put in more work and the conditions requied to complete the task assigned to them. The return grades are expected returns should the project be a success. Returns will be in Monetary USD formats when that day comes.
We ask anyone interested please apply! Out of applicants we will only select a limited few and those who are capable of completeing the tasks. This is a real job, and like mentioned earlier, should this game get finished, finished correctly, and found to be stable and enjoyable by the limited amount of public testers, this game will become market live and compensation for the work you have done will be offered.
Thanks, and have a nice day
Project Leader / Storyline Designer
