    Greetings.

    We have been developing a project for about 6 months, and we truly need your help for this.

    We are developing a self-scient RPG. That means, a world in which the player plays as a character and the other characters are aware of and question about their own existence.
    The idea runs around the Turing Test, which says:
    "If a human can't identify wether what he talks to is human or robot, then the robot passes this test."
    Long story short, the intention is that not only the characters of this world pass through it, but they actually try to do something to understand and improve their existence, on their own.
    That is why we required so much time before being able to actually start mapping the world and characters. The entirety of gameplay, mechanics and intelligence was being developed so that we could put stuff in the world.

    I am the main developer and programmer of this game.
    My avatar, is a prototype representation of me. This is a prototype for the main character:

    We also have a self-scient rock, that knows it is a rock and knows it should not move, because it is a rock. Say hi to rockie

    [​IMG] hey...

    Yes, this is how bad my pixel art is, I used them to test mechanics. And the character is 8-directional.


    After 5 months of research about philosophy, alchemy and mythology references, this world can break the fourth wall so hard people will say a fifth wall was broken. Also, the Lore is as dense as one can get.
    This project has been inspired by Undertale, and as such we look for artists that would like to be part of a project at least as dense and complex.

    We need people good at developing music and pixel art (2 of each). I deal with the programming, and am currently trying to insert 2 other people on the project, resulting a team of 7 people for now.

    "You said it is paid"

    Yes. And this project does not have the required resources to pay you for its entirety.
    However, we don't intend to make the entire project with the current resources, nor we intend that the artists are not very well rewarded. So this is how it is planned, but we can make different deals.

    We need artists so we can make a Demo.
    We will put the Demo on kickstarter, so we see if it is viable.
    If we can't have everything required for the entire game, you will be rewarded for the Demo.
    If we can, you have an evenly distributed part of everything we ever earn from the full version.

    However, if you put being paid over making part of a good project, don't worry. You will not be part of it. We want a competent team for making a great game, not employees.

    For the Demo, I could put it in the Paid section. However, I value the work of people in this section more for reliability as a team.

    Hi!

    I'm a composer and sound designer and I'd be happy to work with you on this! I LOVE Undertale and anything inspired by that sounds like my cup of tea! I really like the idea of your game and think it's something I could be very excited to work on. My top priority on a team is to make the best product I possibly can while having fun with the team, and doing whatever it takes to make a great game.

    Here are a few examples of some of my work:



    Please reach out if you'd like to talk about it with me! You can email me at lucas@lucasedwardsmusic.com or PM here on indiegamer.

    Cheers,
    Lucas

    Hey, I'm also a composer and sound designer. If you're going for an 8-bit/retro feel to match your game, maybe you'd like to check out this quick showreel I've made in that style.



    Thanks,

    Daniel.
