Rogue Planet Games is seeking bids, in part or in whole, for our upcoming browser-based mini-game entitled Exis: Founders, tentatively set for public release Summer of 2010 as announced on the game site Exis.
We have subdivided the work into three (3) categories, BUILDINGS, MAP TILES and ICONS, itemized below.
2D Isometric Buildings, all with consistent angle and scale with transparent background. All sizes are in pixels.
Five (5) distinct architectural Themes, to represent the particular art and custom of five available Races.
Approximately two hundred (200) Buildings per Theme (this is not a final count) sub-categorized as follows:
Small) 100 images at 128 x 192 in either dimension/Theme.
Medium) 75 images at 192 x 256 in either dimension/Theme.
Large) 25 images at 256 x 320 in either dimension/Theme.
Each size above to have a 'Starting' and 'Interim' appearance before completion to final (simulating construction progress). +6 approximately sized images/Theme.
For a total of:
510 (128 x 192)
385 (192 x 256)
135 (256 x 320)
50+ Embellishments 64 x 64 (or smaller)
These are decorative only and separate elements with no impact on game play. Garden Gnomes, gazing orbs, cave paintings, pretty much whatever the artist may imagine.
'Alien Ruins' as follows:
Small) 25 images at 128 x 192 in either dimension.
Medium) 10 images at 192 x 256 in either dimension.
Large) 5 images at 256 x 320 in either dimension.
Huge) 1 image at 320 x 384 in either dimension.
BUILDINGS - Texture Art
Each Building may have three Elements that can be customized: walls, roof and feature (doors, window, etc). The player would be able to select from a number of preloaded textures and colors for each element via a Flash program. We include this information in order that the artist may bear this in mind when designing the images. We are currently considering contracting for the separate skills and talents of a texture specialist to assist in this feature.
2D Isometric terrain images.
20 Terrain Types 1024 x 512
20 Terrain Features 256 x 192
Representative game elements consistent with the current site and game design.
200 Resources (icon) 64 x 64
200 Tools (icon) 64 x 64
Artist may bid on one or more of the Themes under the BUILDINGS heading as described above - but must commit to a complete set of images for an entire Theme. It is our belief that distinctions between the architecture of the various races might be more convincingly expressed if there was a different artist for each Theme.
Artist may bid on the MAP TILES separately, but must include both Terrain and Features.
Artist may bid on the ICONS project separately also, but must include both the Resource and Tool icons.
Artists are invited to bid on the entire Project.
Timeline contemplated for the completion of all elements is 90 days.
Please submit samples of your work directly relevant to your bid to:
Please provide direct, live links, if you are referring to offsite materials.
If you have a robust body of work I would ask that you link directly to whichever pieces you feel best illustrate your expertise in the areas we seek, I regret that I cannot peruse entire portfolios - enjoyable though it may be otherwise.
Please specify which you are bidding on in the Subject Line: Buildings, Map Tiles, Icons or Project (should you desire to bid the whole) - or whichever combination you choose.
Please specify your desired Fee for each explicitly.
Thank you and I look forward to your responses.
