Team name:
Vermin Entertainment

Project name:
Fierce Talon

Brief description:
Fierce Talon is is a 3D adventure/detective game with a strong film noir mood, set in an alternative near future. The game will be published and sold in

episodes over the internet through sites like <a href="www.manifestogames.com">ManifestoGames.com</a>. The game has been in production for around 2+ years

with a fairly regular team. We are currently switching to <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irrlicht_Engine">Irrlicht engine</a> (@wikipedia), because at

the moment our in-house engine would take too long to complete and we are pressed for time. The game itself has an unique mood and setting, made to immerse

the player completely. Gameplay will also be substantially different from traditional point-and-click adventures, more towards titles like Fahrenheit/Indigo

Prophecy.

Target aim:
Retail (in episodes)

Compensation:
Payed from the profits from the first episode.

Technology:
System: PC
Target system: Windows
Programming language: C++ (cpp)
Asset management: Our own online filebrowser (the FTF) and Subversion for version control

General requirements
<u>Required skills:</u>
- You should be a great teamworker, with good english skills.
- Experience in 3D modeling for games (indie stuff, mods, etc)
- Highly motivated and ready to kick some ass.
- Ability to dedicate some time to the project each week (no quitters, please).

<u>We would also love if you:</u>

You will work as part of a team that has much experience of independent game development, and we aim at making this a profitable game via online

professionals, claiming Fierce Talon as the reason they succeeded to score a job in the industry.

You will work with goals, milestones, excellent management and will be guaranteed to learn something new each day. We are a collaborative team, meaning we

help eachother out and make sure that noone is left behind. Plus, we are fun to work with :)

Details for 3D lead:
We are currently looking for a 3D artist to lead our 3D department (currently one active modeler). You should have experience in game modeling and good

communication skills. Our former (now biz employed) 3D lead will act as a supervisor/advisor when he can find the time, so you'll always have someone you can
