[CONTRACT/ROYALTY] Dark Storm Ascension Recruiting


Hello everyone! Fenrir Studios is looking for talented artists and programmers to help build the world of “Dark Storm”. We’re looking for candidates that have wide range of techniques for creating stunning visual 3D environments, and have comprehension with 3D game design.

Project Title:
Dark Storm Ascension

Dark Storm: Ascension is an indie stealth action title, with roots heavily inspired by classic games such as Metal Gear Solid and Deus Ex. You play as Amber Kingsley, a form Army Special Forces soldier that was dishonorably discharged after a failed mission in North Korea, which resulted in the deaths of several members of her squad. Now riddled with guilt, Amber has joined Ancile, a private military corporation charged with protecting the Irving Apex Facility in Alaska. There she hopes to find a new purpose, but will ultimately be forced back into action when the base comes under attack from a mysterious enemy.
