= ANIMATOR NEEDED FOR GAME =
hello guys! my name is Jara and I am making a game called "Unwritten". I was hoping to find an animator here who could help me. We are nearly releasing the demo of our arcade game, which will allow us to open our website and start donations which we will share between the members. Right now we have one animator in our team but she doesn't have enough time to work on the game right now.
The arcade game we are planning to make will have several modes: a pvp mode, which is simply battling against an AI or friend in a map. but also other more interesting modes like capture the flag, a sidescroller race where you can prevent the other players in many interesting ways to reach the end, and mode where enemies come from 4 sides, and together you will have to protect your base. We are still thinking of other modes. We will make it so you can co-op with your friend by sharing IP addresses.
the game has 8 playable characters. each with a different element, weapon and story:
- girl1: light, sword and shield.
- girl2: poison, daggers.
- girl3: fire, katars.
- girl4: blood, scythe.
- girl5: nature, lance.
- girl6: ice, instruments.
- girl7: thunder, bow and arrow.
- girl8: dark, two handed sword.
and also two boys:
- boy1: illusion, shurikens.
- boy2: wind, boomerang.
Things you will have to animate are mainly spells for the girls/weapon attacks but once we are done with that we'll move on to the creatures/environment. Each girl has 5 spells which need to be animated from 3 angles (front, side and back). We are programming the game with unity.
Here are some screenshots of the game:
game story summary:
The universe started with only one god: the space writer (Astrea) and the dragon of space and time rules over everything. Watching the world from far she dislikes the decisions the humans have made. Her whole idea was changed by her own creations. Astrea used to watch this one boy Weiss (time writer) having the same ideas and hopes for this world as her, she thought. He wanted to change it, though he couldn't since he didn’t have the power to do so. So Astrea gave him the powers of time. Together they hoped to make the world a better place. They started to grow a really close bond, until the time writer came up with this really bad idea to take free will from Astrea’s creations and control them. He never discussed this with Astrea, knowing she would disagree. In an attempt to stop the time writer’s plans, Astrea created (the boys), but all of their attempts failed, because the boys were too different from each other and didn’t want to work together. After a long time dwelling in the book for too long their memories scattered around the place (because memories are like energy). Unable to prevent the time writer from destroying her creations, she thought of one way to do it: she used all of her powers to create 8 girls and set up a path for them. But because she used up all of her power, she became exactly 8 different kinds of cloaks (the cloaked figures, not male or female). She used that to her advantage by guiding the girls to their destination. The boys just became "a distant past" for the space writer, still dwelling in the world while Astrea gave up on them. Even though Astrea forgot about them - considered them a failure - they still existed and decided to help the girls after figuring out what was going on. Their life seemed like a "vague memory" since they couldn't remember anything about what happened before they got into the book, because they were created as Astrea's soldiers. The cloaked figures guide the girls to escape the maze the time writer set up from them, by giving them 4 choices (doors) once in awhile. They need to find each other through this maze, because together they have the power to defeat him according to the cloaks. The first task the cloaked figure gives each girl is overcoming their fears.
