Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs - The Game
We are working on a Arcade Style "On Rails" Shooter. The game is based upon an animated television space western, similar to the series Galaxy Rangers and Bravestarr.
The series premiered in the United States in 1987 and had a run of 52 episodes.
In 2010 we purchased the Licence to do a game under the premise "By Fans for Fans"
The Game will be a mix between Sin and Punishment 1&2 and Starfox64.
The Music for the final Game will be made by Chris Huelsbeck based upon the original Soundtrack by Dale Schacker.
The final Game will feature all the original Voice actors in English (i.e. Peter Cullen) and German (i.e. Christian Tramitz).
A GDD is in place.
The series and also our Game is set In the distant future. Humans have spread beyond Earth and colonized planets across the universe,
creating a New Frontier of man. In order to protect these new settlers and maintain laws and regulations in the New Frontier, Earth's Cavalry Command was created.
Cavalry Command is a military organization, maintaining an army and fleet of ships to protect the New Frontier.
Within Cavalry Command is a unit of special operatives known as Star Sheriffs that function as field agents,
investigating crimes and plots against the security of the New Frontier.
The main foe of Cavalry Command and the Star Sheriffs is a race of non-human creatures known as Vapor Beings also called "Outriders"
that jumped into our dimension in order to conquer it.
They attack the settlers, destroy settlements, and kidnap humans, in order to mine various metals or crystals from the soil.
Outriders are superior to humans in battle technology. They control a legion of gigantic robots with weapons greatly superior to the weapons
and defenses of the space-going fleets of Cavalry Command.
In response to the threat, Cavalry Command developed a prototype ship known as the "Ramrod Equalizer Unit" or just "Ramrod"
that has the ability to turn from a spaceship into a powerful robot that can fight the Outriders on equal terms.
We are currently a fairly small team and have been working on this project for about a year now.
Each of us is working in the Games Industry or is experienced in Game Development.
In order to bring our project to an success we would therefore quite appreciate the assistance you could provide,
especially since everybody of us is fulfilling multiple roles in this group.
The team currently consists of:
Concept artist: 1
3D Modeler: 1
Environment Artist: 0
Particle Effects Designer: 1
Texture Artist: 0
2D Artist: 1
The project is currently being managed via skype and e-mail.
There is also a internal Forum in place.
For file transferring we are using DropBox.
For the development we are using SVN and Redmine.
for our Project we are using UDK
Who we are looking for:
3D is the Bottleneck right now.
We need more people to help turn all the great concept Art into nice 3D Models.
If you have experience with modeling, rigging, texturing or animating and are interested, let us know.
Our coder is doing a great job, but he can not do that job 24/7 (Doh!).
This Position is ot very urgent so far but it can not hurt to keep the eye open.
We are looking for someone with a fair amount of coding experience, and is willing to do different kinds of coding
from weapons and vehicles, to gametypes and gameplay. The coder should know UDK, UDK Script very well.
Unreal Kismet/Matinee Expert:
This part was covered by us so far but somebody with good knowledge in these parts could come in handy.
Our Goal is to bring the project to a certain point to have enough material.
Then we plan to setup a Kickstarter Campaign and register this project on Steam Greenlight.
We are a very devoted team with some experience under our belts, and are quite willing to see this project through!
We are beginner-friendly and as long as you have a bit of experience and passion you are welcome to apply! We hope you are interested in joining our team!
If you want to work with us on that Project, please contact me at
or send me a PM here.
If you need more Informations about the Project or the Series, don't hesitate to ask.
