VGUGames is recruiting
« on: Feb 02, 12, 03:00:26 PM »

Dear HeroEngine Community,

I am Benjamin "Maxunit" Bien, Founder from VGUGames.

VGUGames recently got access to the HeroCloud and that gave me a boost with deciding which Engine to use.

So far my Team includes me (Administration, Management, Public Relations, Hosting, Webmaster), a story writer and a music composer.

We are looking for people to fill all the other positions, which include:

HESL Programmer/Programmer willing to learn the HeroEngine Script Language
Concept Artist
Sound Artist
Music Composer
Story Writer

(It is always good to have more than 1 person per "department")

About our Project (Story is still being worked on, nothing is final):

Story (short):

Project "Smörgåsbord" (later to change, inside joke) is a Game placed in the future, where Humanity had to move underwater, due to radioactive contamination. The radioactive contamination began, when major Countries fought for resources in 2052.

The creative heads of the society found a way to live underwater and travel underwater. 200 years have passed since the last global war and humanity adapted to the new environment.

Surely it is not safe. Bandits, Slave Traders and other "corrupted Companies" wander around.

You (the Player) are neutral tho, you lived a normal life. Tho when you reached the age of 21, your parents said, that you have to travel and find a job. Live your own life.

This is where the possible decisions kick in. You can decide between several jobs, which include, but are not limited to:


Or do you even proof yourself, find enough followers to create a Pirate Empire or have you worked long and hard enough to save cash to fund your own Company and hire people?
That is up to you.

From there, your journey starts and we let you go.


From here on we are still working on Ideas and Concepts. Do we go the way of a complete fast-paced FPS or a classical MMO like World of Warcraft, Aion etc?

Right now we have the idea to do the Submarine action (outside of a camp, city etc) in First Person, where you are in a typical Third Person view when you enter a City. In Cities you can upgrade your Submarine, buy a new Submarine, sell Items, buy Items and more, including RPG.

If you would like to get an idea on how we look at the FPS/Action part, then I can only say, that we got inspired by 2 rather old games, one older than the other.

The oldest one from them is called Schleichfahrt (Archimedean Dynasty) and the other one is called Aquanox.

This Project is currently without any funding and it would be an unpaid job (for now).
We are still thinking about it, if we go Free2Play or commercial.

If you are interested in this Project, please send a PM to me or send an E-Mail to xxdarkslayerxx[AT]hotmail[DOT]com, with a portfolio (if possible).
