we are a friendly, small, german indie team (actual 9 people [3 QA-Testers,2 community manager, 1 game designer, 1 modeller, 1 Sound designer and 1 creative head]) with a love on horror and shooter games. We are currently searching for some programmers who can make all the things we need for our actual game "Psychiatrix" Its a horror game. We want to start from 0 after the tech demo with a new engine, the unreal engine. We've planned a kind of inventory, infection system and AI enemies. We would also like applications from students who haven't much experience.
The idea of the story is:
Human vs infected monsters. When the monster bites you, they infect you and you slowly turn to a monster yourself. The story centers around a person who gets infected. Her/his task is to run around an asylum to find a cure. She/he is being guided by a friend on a radio. As the game progress, the person becomes more and more infected. As they get more infected, they start to understand the monster’s language. They start to see the monster as human and such. They start to understand them. But the minute she/he finds a cure and become fully human, they see the monsters as monsters again, and just kills them. The story is about how humans are slaves to their circumstances. They dont change unless the circumstances allow them to. So, when the protagonist was turning into a monster, she/he could relate to them. But when he/she became human again, they instantly lose that connection and revert back to their normal views.
But the big contra is that we can't pay for your work. We don't earn any money with the game yet. We would be ready to donate for you when we make money.
- have good communication skills (english or german)
- be able to describe complex interrelations in writing
- friendly to other people

We are really looking forward to your application and we want YOU in our team.
