We are an indie game studio located just outside of Pittsburgh, PA.
Title: AfterMath (working title)
Engine: CryENGINE 3 SDK
Genre: FPS/RTS MMO
Background: ( http://www.manateestudios.com/games ) AfterMath is set in a post-apocalyptic world, brought about by a massive meteoroid shower that brought with it destruction on a massive scale, and an alien virus. The virus is extremely mutagenic, and is able to infect almost all biological life on Earth (meaning animal, vegetation, etc...). The virus splices itself into the host's DNA, mutating the DNA of the host. This causes reproduced cells to mutate, as well as viral reproduction. When the virus reproduces, it also takes along copies of portions of the host cell, creating a cross-reaction with other hosts it infects. Basically, the virus causes massive cross mutations through all earthly biological lifeforms. The game takes place 100 years after the initial viral outbreak.
Atmosphere: Think "Junkyard Wars"
Currently, we are trying to build a nice library of equipment, weapons, mobs, NPCs, vegetation, and mundane models.
We are using primarily Autodesk and Pixologic software.
We are also using DAZ3D software and models.
We are also building our library of textures. We are using CGTextures.com and Photoshop.
All current positions are volunteer positions. We do plan on launching AfterMath commercially, and then work on a royalties system for our developers, but until it is actually released, we cannot guarantee any form of payment.
3D Modelers - equipment, weapons, mobs, vegetation, mundanes
Animators - biped, quadraped, insect, arachnids
