Ironbane MMO looking for pixel artists!

on: November 07, 2012, 07:50:06 pm
Ironbane is an action MMO played straight from your browser, using 3D graphics and a retro graphics style.



The game focus on simple gameplay without leveling, fast combat using swords, axes, daggers, bows and magic staves and intense Player vs Player combat. Our intention is to create a vast alive world where players can interact with each other. The main objective of the game is to defeat Ironbane, a dragon hiding in a castle waiting for a challenger. Future updates will include the ability to buy houses, participate in player arenas, do quests, make use of transports such as hot air balloons, boats and trains and many other things that we are still thinking of.

Our graphics theme: Retro 16-bit steam age

Ironbane has been in development since February 2012, and has just released its first Alpha version.

We need Pixel Art! Currently we're in dire need of 16-bit pixel art that fits our game. Our theme is a blend between the medieval and steam age.

What exactly? We need sprites for monsters currently, including one for our main villain Ironbane.
Each monster or NPC in Ironbane uses a 8x3 spriteset. Some examples:





There are not that much work as you expect. Half of the images are mirrors of eachother and can be re-used.

And we also need Music Composer(s)! We must have a main theme for our game. If you ever played RoTMG or Minecraft: we're looking for a theme song that fits with the music style that was created for these games. Our game villain is a dragon that's hiding in a castle waiting for a noble hero to prove a challenge. Can you make something which portrays this exact feeling of entering this magical action-packed world, with a medieval-steam age touch, and yet somewhat action-packed. The song should have a catchy melody, something that people can remember afterwards without being overly annoyed.

A-and w-we also need... If you think of something else in which you could help us out in anyway you can, let me know!

What can I offer for you? As an indie game with no revenue at all (only costs really), we cannot offer you anything but our gratitude at this time. However, with just our first alpha released, our game is growing more mature each day. Joining a project like ours would mean a great addition to your portfolio, as we're one of the more serious projects out there on which you can make a difference. In addition, we'll add you to our credits list and link back to your portfolio or website.
