Kaz has written up an ad for our current position vacancies, which we'll be posting around:
The Beyond Modding team, which created the Fallout: New Vegas mod “Beyond Boulder Dome,” is seeking one or two artists to create 2-D assets for an original point-and-click sci-fi game called “Red Sol Extinction.” Since the game is in early development, we are in need of all assets including environments, animated character sprites, and character portraits. We’re looking for a somewhat realistic style similar to that of the games “Beneath a Steel Sky” and “Gemini Rue,” but of higher resolution with 32-bit color. Here is a synopsis of the game:
“In the distant future, a team of researchers study alien ruins on a lush, habitable world in hopes of claiming a new home. However, they must first discover what caused the extinction of its previous inhabitants: humans.
When evidence suggests Mars as the origin of the extinction event, you, the team’s top anthropologist, must travel back to a time when humans roamed the Red Planet. After possessing the bodies of two humans in different Martian eras, you can coordinate your investigative efforts through time, while trying to evade suspicion.”
As the project is currently non-profit, this will be an unpaid role, though there may be the possibility to earn at some point in the future.
If you specialize in characters, backgrounds, or both, please contact Rob at email@example.com. For team updates, check out our blog here: beyondmodding.blogspot.co.uk
