Hello there, my name is Chee Hang, and I’m the director/creator of an up and coming video game, Soulforce World.
I would like to announce positions open for sprite artists who would like to prove their talents and work on something worthwhile, as this is an ambitious undertaking that I have been working on for a long time, but have found the team and talent that I have been looking for.
I am looking for sprite artists that can be able to do character and object sprite work, background sprite work, portraits and detailed sprite work, menu element sprite work, and special effects sprite work.
The game is a camera controllable, 3d-2d isometric real time, open ended action RPG game. Gameplay will involve a real time action battle system, special minigames, problem solving, exploration, and unique spins on traditional systems of gameplay, interfaced with an innovative control setup that allows a much wider variety of actions and abilities. The game itself will be written in C# and XNA; however, an engine is still being investigated, our likely engines being Unreal or SDK.
Our presentation will show Soulforce World in an Anime style, but more akin to 90’s era anime and video game based anime styled art found back in the 90’s.
Graphics will be rendered in simple 3D, with sprite textures being implemented to allow sprite activity, in a manner similar to Ragnarok Online.
A single story in the series of episodic tales surrounding the affairs of Neirraopolis, a planet in which the underlying mystical and spiritual forces of existence have weaved its way into the very fabric of reality itself, a vast world, beautiful, grand, lush and abundant in indefinite resources and wonder, but also just as brutal, merciless, and ferocious. Notably living there are the sentient beings known as Ciealieans, human-like creatures spawned from infernal and celestial forces, born of the seas and soil of Neirraopolis itself, and given the right to use Magic, the ability to harness the forces of their very souls to affect and utilize the world around them in their forms of expression.
Existing amongst Ciealiean kind are the Nefarious, the demonic influenced, gifted with heightened physical attributes and senses, and being able to empower magic through the sole use of emotion, the Ennoble, the celestial influenced, gifted with heightened cognitive reception, mental capability, lithe agility and greater learning capabilities, allowing them to delve into the inner workings and mysteries of the world, and the Poens, Ciealieans born of the unity and alliance of the two races, allowing them the capabilities of both races.
Throughout Ciealiean history, they hold stories of heroes and extraordinary people, of many walks of life and from many foreign lands, far and wide, who have continually performed deeds of great effort and daring undertakings that have impacted Ciealiean society at large and helped them avoid catastrophe.
One such story, takes place in the Age of Enrichment. Massive advancements in the fields of Dynamisology have allowed nations all over the known world to enjoy a comfortable standard of living. Known nations of peoples all throughout the world have finally established legalized trade after years of exclusion and cold wars. People have diverted their attention away from industry, allowing them to pursue luxury and affluence. This also has caused a growth of higher power in the field of defense, reviving incentive and opportunity for brave adventurers and warriors all over the world to traverse lands untouched and unknown.
People are also starting to focus on the societal, political, and philosophical inequities that have long gone unaddressed. The situation is only stirring and growing more turbulent with every passing day, into a possible worldwide cultural revolution. Meanwhile, darker forces lurking in the shadows of society, in the depths of lands lost to history, and destructive powers of the supernatural and unknown grow in power once more, waiting to revive a timeless cycle of destruction and conflict.
The first title focuses on Junaxana Badami, a happy go lucky and bubbly Poen from the nation of Fortuna, a star athlete of the Exsulta games (Neirrapolis' Olympics, and an outspoken critic toward its notoriously (but largely ignored), unfair practices, and world cultural issues. Her career is ruined when she's shown supporting a protest group “known” for its extremist behavior. Now unable to make a living, she devotes her full attention to fighting these injustices and achieving her lifelong dreams she once put away, but the events that stir in the world will eventually impact all she holds dear, force her to fight back and have her rise to action with many others in the world, just like history before has shown...
Highly considered for this job are talented hired hands and willing associates, as this is one undertaking that cannot be done alone. This story requires an attention to detail, and great deal of imagination and brainstorming, as well as motivation and love to properly execute.
If you are interested and are fit and able for the job, I assure you that you will receive compensation and rewards for your efforts and talents. But I will hide no hidden strings; as this is a venture of entertainment, this is a gamble in itself, and I do not accept the fickle, the cynical, the deceiving, the easily agitated, the cowardly, the arrogant, the naive, or the lazy. I only expect the best out of my clients, and they must be willing, able, courageous, accepting, adaptable, keen and devoted to this venture. Payment will be distributed in residuals and will be based on how well the game sells.
