Author Topic: [NON-AGS Hiring] Searching Marketer, Artists, Writers, to join our indie studio!  (Read 513 times)

An Introduction

For the past six months, my team has been working on an indie game that is getting ever closer to being ready. The team currently consists of me (the project lead), a game developer in charge of implementation and coding, a writer designing the story, and two artists creating the background and characters, respectively.

The project fits into the Western Adult Adventure Game Market. A niche that I discovered about three years ago and instantly saw the opportunities in.
While this is a studio making an adult product, this isn’t really an adult company. I just see a good opportunity here and I am not afraid to go after it. I'll try to keep this post as SFW as possible.

A Lewd Point-&-Click Adventure Game

Another Chance is a lewd game with a lewd storyline that deals with topics such as loneliness and isolation on a real level in our work-a-day, social media world.

The story stars a 20-something waste of space going nowhere fast. Through a series of mysterious circumstances, our protagonist receives a divine intervention and is granted Another Chance at life.


Here are just some of the characters you will meet:

    Meet Isabelle — the friendly new girl from across the pond, who somehow wasn’t in your last senior year class but is now.

    Meet Kate — the sadistic queen bee of the school, who will walk all over you if you’re not careful.

    Meet Flora — the younger sister you always wished you had, but that it’s probably best for everyone you didn’t.


And a couple of locations where the story takes place:

    Welcome to the pit of depravity, the tomb of the forsaken, the well of lost souls… my bedroom.

    Creaky steps. Sneak 100 required to reach the kitchen after bedtime.

And finally, here is a little (very slightly NSFW) **gif** of how everything comes together and how the game looks and functions:

In Search Of


There are four job positions that I’m currently looking to fill,


Social Media Manager / Community Manager / Talent Scout

While I’m certain about the quality of our game,  I feel like success relies heavily reaching and interacting with the consumers.  .

For this role, I need someone well versed in internet culture. Someone able to reach the deepest and darkest corners of the internet and spread our message proudly. I need someone skilled in managing social media accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.), and who knows the ins and outs of Reddit.  The ability to start conversations and create buzz about our game across multiple subreddits and platforms is essential. Applicants for this position should also know their way around Discord, and be proficient in live community management.  Finding Facebook groups, Discord servers, and Tumblr blogs that might be interested in our game is also a big part of the job; as is getting down and dirty on sites like 4chan. In short, I’m looking for someone with a good head for business and marketing, who can promote our game without coming across as spammy or fake. 

Virtual Assistant / Partner

For this role,  I need someone who can help me grow my business ideas into successful enterprises. This isn’t going to be one of those types of VA jobs where all you have to do is some simple excel data entry or emailing. I need someone who will pretty much be my equal and will help me build this company (and others) from the ground up. Besides this game, I am also working in eCommerce and Apparel so anyone with experience in those fields is a big plus. In short, I am looking for is someone intelligent, hardworking, consistent, who is ready to get their hands dirty in the bizarre world of online business.

U.I. Artist

For this job, I’m looking for a U.I. artist for my game. If you noticed the gif, the U.I. is still very lacking. I’m looking for someone talented to create all the text boxes, menu boxes, icons, and so on, matching the cartoon style of the game’s backgrounds.

Musician

I’m also looking for a musician who can compose one or two original works to accompany the demo launch of the game, and maybe eventually work on a full multi track original soundtrack that will fit the theme of the game.

I would also love to find more artists or writers who would be interested in working on this type of project (especially a character artist so we can speed up our production). Although for these roles, the need is less urgent, but I would love to start opening up some conversation if this post has sparked your interest.

Now about the pay. When I first had the idea to build a game like this three years ago, I was a Junior in college and was trying to hire everyone off a few thousand dollars I had saved up. Needleless to say, it didn’t work and all that ended up happening was me losing a good chunk of money and time. Recently however, I was fortunate enough to be hired by a company in the nearby city. I decided to take my paycheck and pretty much reinvest all of it into this dream of mine.

I am currently paying my team members $500 a month, paid out as $125 every week and that is what I would like to offer you as well. This is just while everything is coming out directly from my pocket. I believe this game will be very successful and I plan on bringing my whole team up along with it. The idea is that is when we start making money from the game, I will increase the pay of all team members in steps, so everyone will get a raise to $750 a month, then $1000 a month and so on.

Conclusion

If you are interested in any of these positions,  the game,  or if you would simply like to join the community, here is a link to the Another Chance Discord server. https://discord.gg/qtxrNMa
