Hiring: UnrealScript Programmer for iOS

Company:
MooView Games Inc.

Game Name:
The Curse of Kullvaria


Brief description:
The Curse of Kullvaria is an iOS, pirate themed, twin stick shooter. We have been in development since January this year. Starting part time after work we have recently switched to full time. We have almost 900 hours dedicated to this game between the two of us. (see team members)

The story revolves around our hero, Hugo Cannon Tredder, a man of solidarity and
surprising intellect. An avid reader, he consumes legends before bed and myths for breakfast. Coming across one such legend about a hidden island that was supposed to have held priceless treasures, crystals of all shapes and sizes whose power would grant you immortality or instant death if you were not careful...

Down on his luck and low on cash, Hugo is out for his last hurrah. What mysteries will he find when he gets there?! Find out!

---

Our first level is centred around Hugo's ship. The level loads with Hugo awakening on his ship, a bit bewildered as to what has happened. To his surprise he has woken up in the middle of a raging battle, with the Abaddon taking hold of his ship! Enemies are pouring on to the decks in search of the man that seeks to plunder their island.

Hugo must defend himself and his ship.

Target aim:
We are going to be selling our game on the Apple App Store, hopefully before the end of August 2011.

This is our Version 1. goal.

Additional Info:
We are both very hard workers, and have actually attempted the Unreal Scripting phase ourselves, baring complete failure to understand UnrealScript in such a short amount of time we had hired another gentleman to work with us to complete all of our UnrealScripting needs. Unfortunately he now has other obligations that are beyond his control and must step out of development.

We are looking for someone that enjoys what he or she does and is as dedicated as we are. We need someone that can put in at least 20+ hours a week. If we find that we work well together, and that the game is as successful as we all hope then there is definitely room for permanency with us. We allow you to work from where ever you are located utilizing DropBox as our main hub for the project.

You must be willing to sign contracts and NDA's if you choose to work with us.

We are both friendly guys and joke around a lot. We aren't slave drivers but we DO have a game to finish.



I, Michael Jarvis, love most music, favourite movies include Moulin Rouge and both Kung Fu Panda's. My favourite book series is The Nightside by Simon R. Green.
Raveen loves classical music and his favourite movies are Star Wars (4,5,6 obviously) and Lord of the Rings trilogy. His favourite book series is The New Jedi Order!

Here is a taste of what we have thus far.



I'd like to introduce you to our cast!

















As well, here are some ingame screenshots, obviously everything in them are to be considered works in progress, but this should give you a sense of where we are in the project so far. Feel free to visit our YouTube channel for some gameplay videos.














Feedback:
ANY

Sign up for this, folks. It's coming along fabulously and I want to see it happen!

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.
