Fire Totem - New commercially focused team looking for artists



Fire Totem is a new team with a commercial focus, looking for potential team members to join as starting collaborators. The team is still forming and currently we are in heavy need of 2D/3D artists and animators. It is lead by the lead programmer. Please bear in mind that our intentions are that of a commercial team (not a hobby community), oriented at making profits, committing and growing as a team/business.


The first/initial project is yet to be determined taking skills of all members into account, but it is planned to be small scope initially to ensure realistic delivery. Various skill levels are welcome. At the minimum, you would be expected to have enough skill to produce usable graphics assets.


We are using Unreal Engine 4 as our main development platform, Apache™ Subversion (SVN)® as our version control and centralised sharing system, Discord as our messaging platform. Our target platform is Windows PC.


Please feel free to contact us regarding any questions. Several ways to contact (in order of ) are:

    Hi, do you have any example of the visual style you are aiming at and the type of game you would like to make?

    Hello, the visual style theme/aesthetic are flexible/to be determined and are expected to be heavily influenced by artists themselves.

    For an initial project of small scope, potential directions could take the form of: simulation/management, small strategy game, random event driven game and turn based games. However these are just a few abstract directions taking scope/complexity into account. Most of the aspects are to be determined taking suggestions and developer ability into account. If you'd like to discuss it in more depth or check on the latest/current concept(s) I encourage you to get in touch on Discord.

    Still looking. Please note that at present, I am not looking for just "revenue-share workers", but people who are also interested to take the initiative.

    This is mostly relevant for those who have a passion for video games and the artistic skill, but lack the strong programming and/or technical skills to establish a full development process.

    Hello everyone. Just a quick update to state that the search is still ongoing so this is still relevant.

    We are currently in the early stages of brainstorming and refining abstract game concepts. The first/initial project is likely (but not necessarily) looking to be a multiplayer 3D turn based PvP game in a stylised art style akin to that of Absolver. These are early stages and many details are yet to be worked out, so developers will be expected to actively participate in all aspects, including the brainstorming and GDD (Game Design Document) creation.

    At the time of this post, there is high demand for skilled 3D modellers.

    In general you are expected to have some experience in your role (not having previous game development experience is okay). However, if you are just starting out with no skills, consider doing some gamejams instead/prior.
