Looking for game feedback (play-testing)


Deadline:
Mon Oct 17, 2005 08:39

Large Animal Games is a small, independent developer of computer games for "casual" players and we're looking for people to help us play-test new games we're developing. If you're interested, just send an email to tester@largeanimal.com to get on our list.

If you are in the NYC area, we're looking for play-testers to come in to our midtown office for 45 minutes and give us feedback on our latest game. Participants will receive a free copy of the finished game, a high-quality Large Animal t-shirt, a crisp new $20 bill, and our hearty thanks.

Please note that we need testers of all levels of gaming experience. Even if the only computer game you ever play on the computer is Windows Solitaire, we'd like to hear from you.

Go to http://www.largeanimal.com/testers to sign up!

Our mission at Large Animal is to make games that are easy to learn and fun for all sorts of players, even those who don't really even think of themselves as gamers.

ABOUT THE GAC:
Founded Spring of 2003, the Graduate Arts Council (GAC) is a
representative council which promotes dialogue, collaboration and a
sense of community for students in the School of the Arts with the
hope that they will not only look to each other as resources during
their studies but leave with a network of peers in disciplines beyond
their own. The council is made up of students from each division -
film , theatre, writing and visual arts.

OPPORTUNITY

wanted: interactive video installation


Deadline:
Thu Sep 09, 2004 00:00

We're looking for an interactive video installation or something like it for an art party on Thurs Sept 9, 7-10pm.

Basically, it would be projected outdoors on a huge screen. Could be an artsy video game (mojib ribbon, indiegamejam's shadowgarden, something EyeToy or DDR based) or user-interactive software (like an interactive screensaver) or anything that involves one or more people.

If anyone has recommendations or is interested in featuring your work, please contact me. (Note that we do have a budget for this, not a huge one, but we can discuss.)

Thanks,
Jennifer Estaris

OPPORTUNITY

WTD: Video Game Artists in NYC


Deadline:
Thu May 20, 2004 19:09

We're looking to hire the following on a project basis: an art director and artists for a game-like demo that we are putting together. 3D models, textures, animations, etc. We especially need artists interested in working on concept art (though we want texture artists, animators, audio ppl, etc., as well) and prefer NYC-based artists. And you should like robots.

The project is part-time for a few months (and could go longer). Previous game experience--working with a real time renderer and modern game engines--is a huge plus, but we're not targeting super high-end rendering. You should be familiar with 3ds max, maya, photoshop, 3d modeling. Email your resume and portfolio link to bernie.yee@mail.com (and mention how you found out about the opening).
