Hi, and welcome to TIGS!
We are a bunch of artists who really did not want to lose our inspiration during the aching days of the summer vacation, and also, we wanted to boost our portfolios a bit, and so we made our very own studio, and now we wanna make a game, or at least go through the fun parts of it!
For now, we are a bit short handed, so we are looking for more hands on deck! You want in? you send me, or algenpfleger a PM, and we'll get back to you. We will all be given asignments twice a week, and you will be expected to finish them on time and with reasonable quality (in other words, no stick men and such)
For now we are:
-Mischeviouslittleelf (Concept artist/Art director)
-Algenpfleger (Senior concept artist)
-Ravn (3D artist)
-Daniel C (Enviorments and props artist)
-lilnebo (Junior concept artist)
So on to the game setting:
We are in an early stage of the industrial revolution, but instead of coal power moving thowards refined oil propultion, they move for advanced steam techs. We are in quite a corrupt democracy, which makes it quite possible to make gameplay move from high on politics to low end underground consipracies and shoot outs, or knife fights, whatever fits you better.
For reference you can use anything, from early steam inventions to the first daimler mercedes engienes, even though these are gazoline powered, the tubes and intricate valve structures are awesome. The background for the civilization is referenced to Britian/France/West Germany during the post victorian age to the same places late 1800's.
The coruption has reached so deep into society that it is literaly on the verge of collapse and that is where our game will begins. We will follow our main character through the social revolution following the degration of government power in the lower levels of the cities of our imaginairy world. the anarchy will climb higher and higher in the social classes, and then the eventual collapse, followed by some new beginning...or that is what I am thinking now, any additional ideas will be appreciated
So for now, we will start working on this, and see how it goes.
All the best
