    Hello, my name is Jack. I represent SymmetryGames as a Director and lead 3D Artist. Currently, due to some internal studio turbulence, SymmetryGames has decided to rebuild its team for Prevail, our latest game concept. We are currently looking for anyone who believes they may relate or be of some use to our studio.

    To get the big question out of the way, no this is not currently a paid job. We will, of course, pay all employees as soon as we obtain funding from our multiple funding methods detailed below. All employees will receive royalties post-game release and post-Kickstarter. We are specifically looking for those who take an interest in our game’s story/plot.

    Prevail: Prevail, as I stated before, is the game we are currently working on. I especially am a huge fan of 3D RPG games. We decided to create Prevail based around such games as DarkSouls and Skyrim. Prevail is set in a specialized medieval/dark age fantasy open-world. When we say RPG, we intend to include the full package. This means our game will include: Magic, Monsters, Medieval Fighting, Fantasy Weapons, Creatures, Adventures/Quests, Castles, Dragons, and more. We intend to create graphics that align with our principle of pushing the boundaries of modern game development. This means realistic graphics. Players play as a specific character, with the ability to customize certain attributes. The most important detail regarding the main character is his/her ability with pyro-magic. The main character is extremely skilled in using fire in many unique ways. This is very much incorporated into his/her fighting style. Although the player’s character is skilled in casting fire, their overall form is rough. Because of this, the player must learn to control their ability, or the consequences could be detrimental. Because the character was so powerful, society rejected him/her. At this time, the character is considered a “wanderer”. When the player begins the game, it starts with a cutscene where their character is traveling up a mountain in search of a new home/life. A few seconds later, the character drops down in the freezing cold. Luckily, an old wise man lives in the mountains right by. The old man takes the character in and gives him/her medicine. After a little lore, the character/player eventually gets his/her first quest from the old man and begins playing. The big and extremely important twist in the game’s plot becomes evident roughly half an hour into the game. Essentially, the entire world’s border is what is known as the Frost. The Frost is a giant, deadly, blizzard that slowly moves in, consuming the huge world. The Frost moves in over the period of roughly 80-150 in-game days, although, that is subject to change. (1 Game Day=24 minutes). If a player or other life form stands in the Frost or near it for more than 30 seconds roughly, they will essentially die. On top of being able to battle, upgrade, and explore the vast world, the player eventually must save the world from certain doom. The metaphorical Frost symbol was countered with the player/main character being a pyromancer. We are currently open to any ideas and additions to the storyline.

    Our funding methods: *Kickstarter/Crowdfunding (we plan to use this as our major funding source) *Unreal Engine DevGrant *IndieFund *Sell assets on game development marketplaces.

    Please note that as a team member, your opinion would mean very much in large project decisions. As a group, we will decide specifically how we will use those funding sources based on individual, and project needs.

    The following list contains the jobs we hope to fill by the end of development on Prevail. I will only give out basic details on this list. Please feel free to ask for more information. Please note that all development and communication takes place via our discord server. Also note, for each job, expect an average weekly commitment of 5-20 hours depending on each week.
