    What is it?

    Nanoforge , is a first-person, sci-fi sandbox-adventure game, built in Unity (C#).

    Target: Digital Distribution (Steam, Humble, etc.)

    What have we accomplished?
    • Greenlit, and approved for distribution on Steam
    • Detailed GDD, narrative, and gameplay documents (27000+ words) to make development simple
    • Established code base: All of the basic gameplay mechanics are in place, and usable! We've developed custom tools to make the level creation and modular level design a snap!
    • Proper management: We've successfully used project management tools since the project's inception, that allow us to complete tasks, communicate, and see the big picture.
    • Modular from the start: We've developed custom tools to facilitate rapid creation of levels that are rich in detail!
    • Perseverance: The game began (as a concept) in 2011, and has been in development since 2012, through multiple project management tools, programming languages, business models, and countless Skype calls.
    • Detailed analytics: Every play session is tracked extensively via custom metrics, allowing us to view heatmaps of player movement, monitor enjoyment, and optimize the game to eliminate confusion
    • Music/SFX: Over a dozen tracks posted on our Soundcloud page, as well as several custom SFX, made exclusively for the game.
    • You can play it. Right now. Fully-functioning first-person sandbox gameplay, in fact.
    What do we offer?
    • Credit in the game's credits, powerful portfolio pieces & references
    • Welcoming and determined team members: Ever lost track of time and stayed up late creating art? We're like that.
    • Flexibility: We've worked with team members from China, Italy, the U.K., Germany, Canada, the U.S., Poland, Russia, and Libya, in countless time-zones. We value your time, so we have no weekly hour requirement.
    • Consistency: We've easily passed our two hundredeth sprint review/planning Skype call.
    • Simple, efficient tools: In-house tools empower you to produce art that looks fantastic, whether in-game or on news sites.
    • Industry experience: Many of our contributors have worked on major titles in the past, or have had professional development experience, including work on titles such as Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Prince of Persia,Thief, and Halo 2. Our former members have gone on to work on Forza Horizon, THIEF, and Crackdown 3.
    • Minimal revisions required: We use a multi-stage process to minimize revisions to work, making development far more efficient!
    • Presence at prominent game conventions, including PAX South, PlayOnCon, EGX Rezzed, and PAX East: We've showcased the game to YouTubers at these conventions and have received universally positive feedback.
    • We are part of the 5%: Virtually all remote-work-based game projects fail within the first six months. We didn't.
    What do we need?
    • C# Programmers
      • C# experience required
      • Prior experience with Unity a plus
      • Communication skills
    Note: Other programmers, LEVEL DESIGNERS, and other roles are also invited to apply!


    Where's the gameplay footage?
    Just as AAA studios do, we keep our gameplay footage closely guarded, as it reveals our innovative take on sandbox gameplay. Additionally, releasing pre-release footage with non-final visuals could confuse potential players into believing that the footage is of the final version of the game. That said, here's a tiny look at our teleport effect.

    How does the game compare to games like GMod or Minecraft?
    We've surpassed Minecraft's Creative Mode in terms of functional features, and are closest to Garry's Mod in terms of planned feature set.

    I'm not experienced enough to join this project.
    That's not a question! There's always a place on our team for someone passionate about game development. Willing to learn?

    Any questions? Ask away!
