Hello Blenderheads, my name is Valentin Anastase, (A.K.A. Dread Knight). I'm a graphic artist/game designer and I am passionate about art, open source, Linux, and game development.
I've heard a lot of people complaining over and over again about the lack of games on Linux and have seen many enthusiasts and indie-devs creating cool little demos - which often end up abandoned - that are far from being polished and worthy to share, that is, something people could actually enjoy playing.
That's why recently I started the Freezing Moon Non-Profit Organization: we're a small team developing two free, open source, cross platform projects. We want to bring things to a whole new level of perfection and for that we're looking for talented individuals willing to work with us to fulfill our noble cause.
A brief intro to our projects:
Ancient Beast is an online multiplayer game, a hybrid combining real time strategy with role-playing elements, based on an exciting fantasy universe infused with rich Norse mythology, featuring 9 distinctive realms containing more than 50 creatures to master or defeat, each with it's own unique and exciting set of upgrades and evolutions that are brought to life by nicely crafted 3d graphics.
Dark Shift is a Sci-Fi multiplayer action FPS, taking place in a post-apocalyptic future, featuring 12 playable unique characters divided in 4 distinctive classes, each having to master it's own unique hunting and survival skills and strategies.
If you take game development seriously, are good at something useful in the field of game development, are eager to contribute to something spectacular; if you want to learn more, meet fascinating people, and have fun, then don't hesitate to get in touch with us at: [email protected]
