Attic Door Productions are currently searching for a talented Sound effects designer.
We are working on a project called "The 13th Doll - The 7th Guest III", a fan-made sequel to the well-known puzzle adventures "The 7th Guest" and "The 11th Hour", which were released by Trilobyte between 1993-1995. We have been give the green light to pursue this 3rd installment of the series by a co-creator of the original, Rob Landeros, as long as the game is freeware.
The original game was a point and click adventure game set in the mansion of a mysterious toymaker, who invited 7 guests to dinner one evening; all of whom were never heard from again. Our game continues where the original story left off.
The game is fairly representational of the original - it is a 1st person adventure game with prerendered graphics and a point and click interface. The bulk of the game is devoted to solving puzzles which unlock FMV sequences to unravel the story.
We aim to produce a high quality sequel to the original games. We hope to regenerate interest in the original games, as well as tell a good story. In doing so, we hope to establish a strong development team, and earn a reputation as an independent game company. We already have a decent amount of press coverage; see below.
We are using Macromedia Director to program the game. We are developing the game on Windows systems. A WINE emulator will allow linux users to play, and a Mac version is anticipated
3d Studio Max and Alias Maya will be used for modeling the environment, and filmed actors will be blue screened over the models.
2d software such as Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop will be used to edit 2d images.
By now, most of the positions in our team have been grabbed already, however, we're still in need of someone who's able to create high quality sound effects. We mainly need environmental sounds, such as various kinds of footsteps, creaking doors etc. Anyone who's interested in taking the position will get a detailled list of what's exactly needed.
We need the results in either .wav (44,1khz, 16bit) or .mp3 (192 kbps or better) format. If you consider yourself capable of creating these, feel free to contact us.
This game is an all volunteer project. No money is to exchange hands during the development of the game, however credit will be given to all who lend a hand in the game's development. Some of your work will also be published on our website and possibly on several other occasions. As stated above, we hope to build a solid team by the end of this project and the major contributors will be asked to stay with the team for the next project, which will be a commercial game.
We currently have about 15 team members working in their spare time, including programmers, music composers/producers and 3D- as well as 2D Artists.
We hope to release the game at some point in 2007.
