    iCL needs Environment Artist


    The Concept

    A new sport has taken the World by storm. With a history that diverted from ours thousands of years ago, the superpowers of today are radically different. Sioux Indians hold North America, Vikings rule much of Europe and Russia, The Japanese have taken much of Asia and the Egyptians hold Africa... and for the benefit of the crowd they’re all killing each other. Huge stadiums holding hundreds of thousands of screaming fans encircle small combat arenas, where soldiers fight and die... and if you can’t hear the roar of the crowd, you’re already dead.

    Media

    See our final Sioux Sculpt and Sioux Theme (music in the video below), don't forget to watch at 1080p!


    Music: Check out our Viking, Egyptian and Sioux themes here!

    Weapon Modelling:

    The Features

    iCL is a Multiplayer First-Person Shooter in UDK, taking all the favourable elements from the current influx of FPS games, and combining them. There are 3 Classes: The Vikings (Heavy), The Sioux (Sniper) and The Egyptians (Assault/Medic). At the start of the game, you pick a character, and the second you start playing, you begin gaining experience and leveling up. As your character progresses, you can pick stat upgrades and new character specific weapon and perk unlocks become available for purchase. That's where the Sponsor System comes in. The more you play the game, sponsor's approach you, offering different amounts of money for different tasks in game - it could be something as simple as getting a kill for 100 Credits, to something as awesome as getting a double head-shot for 10,000 Credits! Only being able to have one sponsor active at one time means that you get to tailor your means of income based on your play-style.

        Thanks for the kind words, it's appreciated. Got any advice as to where to find animators? They're few and far between!

          We were lucky enough to find one through a friend of a team member. Youtube is a good place to start

                        The UDK forums isn't a great place to look. Try polycount technical forums, CG talk, tech artists.

                        I'm not sure how many animators will want to rig though. Good to see you 'Staffs' folks are doing a project. Shout if you's need a hand/advise with any of the technical art stuff

                          Cheers Scott - we are looking elsewhere as well!

                          We're trying to keep our team reasonably small - hence no positions specifically for riggers etc...

                          We'd love to have another Staffs member on team working out some technical art stuff we need - don't hesitate to give us a shout if you want to get involved and if we have any issues I'll be sure to give you an ask in case you have any quick solutions!

                            Small!? but you have a character and environment concept artists =D

                            I can't devote any full time at the moment as doing this masters degree but feel free to add me on skype or where ever you have your discussions and can advise on any of that techy jazz.. To be fair you have James Tan so you should be set!
