leadership experience on many student and game development projects,
outstanding knowledge and understanding of game design & mechanics,
creative individual with good eye for details and design,

Any plans after Imagine Cup?
Regardless of the Imagine Cup results we plan to finish the game and publish it to as many platforms as we can. Primary targets are mobile and pc platforms regardless of the operating system.
All profits will be spit between the team members.
After the project is finished and time comes for moving on to other projects, we would love to continue working with the same team members in the future.
If you have any further questions you can ask them in the comments or send an email to imaginecup @ renianstudio.com.
How do you intend to communicate to team members not in the same country?
All team communication will be done through Slack. It is a service that unites file sharing, instant messaging and brings it to your mobile phone instantly. It is a new and great service many high profile studios are already using.
Our team already has an active account on Slack.
Which country will the team represent on Imagine Cup?
It is just a formality that determines whether the team will compete in National or Online Finals.
It can be any country at least one of the team members is a resident and student, however we are aiming at countries whish have Imagine Cup Games Online Finals. Currently the team represents Croatia as the current team members are residents of Croatia.
Will the team have official blog/website or something?
Yes. When the team chooses the final name of the game a wordpress blog/site will be created at nameOfTheGame.renianstudio.com
All team members will also be given access to personal email addresses in the form of name.lastname @ renianstudio.com
The first round deadline seems a bit close? Are you sure you are going to make it?
We have previously made more in less time. We are confident that we can produce a game more than good enough to pass the first round.
I don’t want to just produce art for the game! I really want to be a big part of the game development process! Can I also take part in big game dev decisions?
Of course! We want you to be a big part of the game! But we are not going to push you to do something you don’t want to do. Providing the art assets is the bare minimum you need to do, not the maximum. How much you will invest yourself into the game is up to you!
