Graphics artists wanted for gamesBy Chris Williams. Published: 21st Jan 2004, 22:51:38 | Permalink | Printable
They're for RISC OS but don't let the punters knowGavin Smith, editor of new born news site Acorn Evolution, has appealed for two graphic artists to help in three upcoming, completely unspecified games.
"I am currently leading a project team working on three games, loosely grouped in a series, to be released over the coming year", Gav explained exclusively on AE, aka Gav's RISC OS 'blog.
"Designing the games first commenced almost three years ago. Each game will be released on Mac OS X, Windows and RISC OS - there may be ports of two of the games to the PocketPC at a later date."
Gav continues to wail: "It may also be necessary to keep the RISC OS side of things separate, to avoid confusion and any negative undertones that it may cause."
Ok, so let's run through the check list of things Gav can't afford to leave out of his video game empire: Logo. Website with wiki. Testers. Mailing list. Graphics artists. Plot. Mocked up ads. And um, that's probably all you need. Best of luck.
New RISC OS games coming - graphics artists required - contact details, job requirements, etc.

Techie docs for mystery Acorn CAD workstation surface
Documentation for Acorn's 1988 prototype 'high end' technical publishing workstation have been scanned and published online by collector-of-old-kit Chris Why. The A680 was an advanced Archimedes-series machine that ran Acorn's Unix attempt, RISC iX. It was initially powered by a 25MHz ARM2 and had a 67MB hard disc with up to 8MB of RAM and a monochrome display.
