After thinking for a while, I've started my own gaming company thing, making 3D games of all genres. I've also started a site for it. It's called Rage Studio, and you can find the site here (http://www.freewebs.com/ragestudio) [as you can see I used freewebs]. But I need a team for my games company and I know, usually, people just get a bunch of friends [who have no clue what their doing] and in the end their games turn out to be **** and the whole thing turns out to be a failure and I'm NOT going to do that. Here is what I need for my team :

P.S. Please make sure, you actually know what your doing.

1. Lead Designer [ME] [Job Filled]
2. Artists x2 [Waiting For Reply]
3. Programmer [programming]
4. Co- Manager [Not manager, assistant manager/ second in command :D ]
5. Editor [editing objects, models etc.]

That's basically it. Also [this only applys to artists], I'm not looking for the next Da Vinci as long as you have a good imagination and can draw stick men and lines your good enough for the job.
Also you need to be accesible, either by e-mail [yahoo, aol, hotmail] or IM [MSN, AIM, Yahoo, ICQ]

Post in your thoughts or if you want to be part of the team. Thanks! :D

Hehe... Muneeb what is your experiance in game development? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif I just want to say; to create something you need a lot of money OR a lot of experiance in programing, modeling and etc. :eek: (for example, I and another person, we needed almost a half year to create an acceptable OGL engine! :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif )

BUT here is a good example what 3 people can do! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif Click >HERE < (http://www.projectoffset.com/)to see more about 'OFFSET'.

...and good luck in your future plans. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

...and good luck in your future plans. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif When I watched the "sneak peek" I was thinking "boy, they've done fantastic modeling and concept work but how will the actual game look?" I'll admit I was not prepared for the gameplay footage to be so awesome! :eek: I'm seriously very impressed!

And an epic fantasy FPS??? As far as I know that's a totally unique concept. Kudos! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Ah... just noticed in your other post that you weren't responsible for that...

Thanks Apofiss. About your question, at the moment I have a program called 3D gamestudio with an A6 engine thing and compatability with DirectX and I know some stuff about scripts and modelling characters etc. At the moment I'm creating 3D games but I'm far away to getting to the stage where they will be released on PSP etc. with TOP-NOTCH graphics. But I hope I do get to that stage someday. By the way great site there very interesting and amazing.

Apofiss
28-07-05, 18:50
Ah, I know A6 (quite limited, but it's really good to start with). Muneeb, can you show some character renders? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

But I hope I do get to that stage someday. Hard work will repay.

I've started creating characters with the Model editor that comes with the package. I'll post some screenies here soon and 2 shots of the, unfinished-working on, level. You can also go on the official site to see them [link is on the first post]. :D

Looks like I'll be workin alone for some while as no one has accepted one of the jobs. Oh well.

Hello Muneeb!

I've just come across this thread, so bear with me. My boyfriend is currently studying art at collage and has shown an interest in your ideas. He would very much like to get in touch and find out more about your studio, plans and (potential) artist requirements. He's asked me to pass on a few questions. Firstly, where are you based? Secondly, do you need artists with qualifications, if so, what?

We would greatly appreciate your thoughts. Regards http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Hello Greenkey2 here are the answer to your questions :

1. At the moment, because Rage Stduio has only me part of it.

2. As I said in the first post, I'm not looking for the next Leonardo DaVinci just anyone who can draw ok.

3. Since he is studying in an art college I suspect he know his colours, how to sketch and has a good imagination full of ideas.

Also if he wants to ask more or anything else tell him he can e-mail me at leon_0120@hotmail.com or IM with MSN or AIM [Am01em]. I hope to hear a reply from him soon. :D

Hi everyone. I'm going to start my own software company, and right now I'm looking for people to work for me. They must come up with great ideas for software. We're going to be bigger than Microsoft.
