We are Digital Rustic. Not a company, but a collective of artists.
Currently, we are working on a project we've dubbed "Project Date 8" (Working Title)
A PG13 dating simulator where the player has 1 hour to build relationships with various quirky characters at a speed dating event. You can find more information about the game in its current state below:
The game so far has been created using Unity, but as we are still in the early prototyping/ concept phase, we're open to suggestions for alternative engines.
As we are, again, not a company and more a small group of collaborators, we are open to all sorts of talented people interested in joining the project! But specifically, we have a number of roles we're looking to fill:
- Backend programmer
- Gameplay programmer
- Concept artist
- Environment artist
- Voice actors
- And we are always looking for Testers!
A little about us: This all started in 2019 when 2 best friends, Chris(Design) and Wesley(Writing) decided to make a game together, slowly we brought in more of our friends. Now we are a team of 4 (previously 6) and we are excited for the prospect of growing this into a legitimate venture and seek to make big changes in the industry, given the chance! We all have day jobs (some of us have children) which is why the project is, for now, a strictly spare time operation; we are a reasonable group of guys and acknowledge that priorities have to come first before side-hustles.
Project Date 8 currently operates on a volunteer basis. For us, this is about building experience and portfolio pieces, but most of all: this is for fun. We are discussing the possibility of monetization down the road, but please note that for the time being this is an unpaid, side project for everyone involved.
We expect this project would last about 6 months working in our spare time. After this project, we will likely start up another project, so if you're interested you can stick around and help us grow!
