Naruto: Mezame - Looking for creative CG Artists

Hi everyone,

Iím Bushidou. Also known as dragonheart from the dominancewar II



After a few years of game developing and projects I decided to start a project based on the popular Naruto show, to bring this cheerfully guy to life.

But what is the point if you donít have a strong team of creativity yet?



Now letís leave this chit chat for later and describe a bit the project:


About NTA:

Naruto - Mezame is an action orientated single player RPG based on the anime/manga series "Naruto". Currently the project is in development for the Unreal Tournament 2004 engine from Epic Games, until the upcoming next generation game ďUnreal Tournament 3Ē will be released.

The game features the player as Naruto, a orphaned kid who has no family or friends. His deepest desire is to be acknowledged by everyone, by becoming the Hokage, the number one shinobi in the village.

The project will have a distinct style, and although it will be based around the naruto anime it will have a unique feel to it. All the environments and characters will be designed and textured in a photorealistic/semirealistic way using normal mapping and other new generation technologies for better quality.

There will be new locations, new shinobi and new creatures that youíll encounter in your missions thanks to our concept artists.

To visit the NTA website, click here:

Here are a few WIP samples I did, witch later will be changed to a more photorealism style:


Characters:

------------------------

Team Recruitment:



We are currently looking for talented and experienced game designers,
3D Artists, 2D Artists, level designers, Unreal Script programmers, music composers, SoundFX creators and story writers.

If you think you are creative in what you are doing, imagining that your neighbor is a crazy mage that want to take your soul drinking from a bottle of bear without no bottom, and looking at his apartment you are thinking of how would you infiltrate it at night as a ninja to raid him, and you can spend hours imagining those kind of things, then we want you

Or just post here your thoughts

Kindest and warm regards,

- Bushidou

Although, I would have liked to see some of the other character from the show as well as the maybe shots from the leaf village. Other then that I can I see where you are going with this. I would like to be apart of this project and lend my talents to help u. I have listed my website below for you to take a look at. My website is stil underconstruction but I hope it will help.

I also am pretty impressed with what you have so far. It looks really good. However, aren't you breaking some copyrights considering that there are already other naruto games that have been made and are in production. Did you get permission?

hi Silvius,


Is hard for me to say this but the work you showed is a bit far away from what we need the most.
Right now we are in need of character designers and environment artists to fill the 3d graphic art category mentioned above.
If you think or are interested to create a small environment place like the Ramen shop from the Naruto show in a photorealism way and with a good logic to see better your skills and team ideas then please contact me for more details and references

knowledge of UnrealED will be even more welcomed



Kindest Regards,
- Bushidou

I was interested in the project but realistically looking at your homepage in your profile raised a few questions in my mind and I have contacted VIZ Media to get a response from them first whether you have licensing rights to Naruto. Untill then I will wait and see what happens.

I am sure there is no problem making a game based off the characters, as long as he does not try and make money off of it.

Actually it violates copyright and not to mention trademark among a few other things that are mentioned on the main site. In the end Naruto games already exist out there and by doing this..free or not, they are making a name for themselves using someone else's idea, characters etc. I really don't believe they (VIZ Media) will be that kind unless he bought an international or a domestic license to gain that right.

But hey, in the end I am all for it if he has gained that license. ^__^;;
