Hi there, I'm GoodAndy. I just typed all this up just a minute ago but someone closed my browser and so here I am, typing it all again. I'm here to tell you why you need to join our team and help us work on our new game, Red Fox.
Since the recent announcement of UDK, I decided to get back on a project I started a year or so back and that's Red Fox. So the main parts are already planned out.
Project: Red Fox
The game we are working on right now will feature 2D gameplay with all 3D graphics. Think of a side-scroller like Mario with fast gameplay/combos like God of War and the charm of Zelda. Being able to slash a foe with the sword, catch them on fire, then jump off of their dead body in mid-air will seem the norm in this game.
The gameplay comes first in this game, but as far as story goes, it involves a sinister black raven named Caspian who uses his shadow magic infused feathers to take control of various leaders around this animal-humanoid infested world. Our protagonist is the little red fox who's grandpa was attacked by one Caspian's little pawns. After quickly rescuing his grandpa, our fox hero seeks out to figure out what is happening around the world and to vanquish Caspian.
Because the game is played in 2D, navigation and combat will be simpler and so the combat can easily be over the top. All things get simpler in 2D, AI, collisions, graphics and controls.
Who is GoodAndy?
I'm the founder of Newkind Designs, a website design studio that is now going to develop games. I will be in charge of the main production decisions, the Newkind Designs website http://newkinddesigns.com and the Red Fox community website http://redfoxgame.com . I'll also end up doing a few models, be the particle effect artist, do a little animation, and level designer. Currently, my portfolio is down because I'm moving to a new host.
Who are we looking for?
Right now we need:
- 3D Artist
- Animator (I'll do my best until we can find one)
- Programmer (I'll do the programming until we can find one)
- Concept Artist (although we currently have one right now)
We most certainly do not need any sound design or music composers. We've got plenty. Apparently this game will end up having a lot of music.
Right now I guess you could say it's in planning stage? I mean, we'll first get the game up and going in a little test room so we can get some gameplay mechanics developed and then we'll really get the first levels made with story telling elements and stuff like that.
Why join the Newkind Designs team for Red Fox?
- Red Fox will be a much simpler project since it's 2D
- All games the Newkind Designs develops will always open for suggestions
- Newkind Designs is really about polishing games and GoodAndy will work hard to make sure your work looks the best it can
