Programmers located Anywhere.

hello! my name is jara and we are looking for a programmer that can implement LAN multiplayer options. the programmer needs to:
- Know how to use Unity Engine.
- Know C#
- Be able to use version control.
It might sound harsh but we don't really have enough time to teach people how to use unity and code, like that's the reason we are posting for right? Because we need coders.
We possibly found someone that fulfills this role, but just in case I am dropping this here for if it doesn't work out. Even if it does we might need someone else to share the work.
We have one programmer at the moment, and one new person which I am again unsure of if it works out.
COMPENSATION: REVENUE-SHARE. (atm that's all i can offer guys, sorry. when the demo is done we might be able to find a publisher, if not i will open the donations)
the game is an RPG, there's 8 playable characters with each its own personality, weapon, element and story:
the game has 8 playable characters. each with a different element, weapon and story:
- girl1: light, sword and shield.
- girl2: poison, daggers.
- girl3: fire, katars.
- girl4: blood, scythe.
- girl5: nature, lance.
- girl6: ice, instruments.
- girl7: thunder, bow and arrow.
- girl8: dark, two handed sword.
the vibe of the game is kinda a mix of (I honestly don't know how to call it) "fairy-like fantasy" and "medieval-like fantasy". kind of royal and rich vibe. you can see this in the screenshots also (placed below).
right now, our first game will be an arcade one, with different modes like capture the star (similar to capture the flag), run n' go (a racing game, but not with cars, kind of similar to cuphead's run n' go but we'll add many different platforms and ways to hinder the other player), protect the clock gate (here, team 1 will try to defend the clock gate while team two tries to destroy it. at the same time there will be enemies coming from the 5 sides. the ones coming from the clock gate are team 1's and will try to destroy the ones appearing from the start of the road (team 2's)), then there's just basic deathmatch. team deathmatch and free for all.
we decided to do this game first because we are still working hard on fixing the story, since it's really complex and we need time for this. my role in the game is also writing, game designing, occasionally artwork and I will hopefully if I practice a bit be one of the voice actors for the game. the game will have voices yes, but only in illustrated scenes. we are creating our first illustrated scene as a test to show people but it's far from done. I am also the founder and owner of the game.
this is what we have so far for the story:
Everything started with just "existence" itself. "Existence" can take shape in everything, create everything and do everything it wants. It's a living being. Existence created a god called Astrea, given the power of space. Astrea created several worlds containing other living beings. However, one of those worlds Astrea watched over didn't satisfy her.
As time passed the newborn world flourished and began to grow, and with its growth so too did Astrea’s creations. From a small village to bustling towns the seeds of life Astrea had spread began to bloom and they deemed themselves humanity. Astrea looked upon her children with happiness for a time, yet with the growth of her children through the ages came sorrow, for they had been given a mortal life and with it the faults of mortality. The poison of mortality ran amok among her children and with it came bloodshed and struggles amongst themselves, and the unseen poison only continued to spread. Astrea bore witness to the destruction caused by her own creations in sadness and lament, yet Astrea could not interfere, she could only watch.
During those dark times Astrea chanced upon a young boy during her observations. She grew attached to the boy as he himself had become aware of the poison coursing through his fellow people. She watched as the boy beseeched the heavens to grant him power so as to save humanity from the poison in their veins. Astrea felt moved by the boy’s words and his determination and so she decided to aid the boy indirectly. She gave the boy a portion of her own power, she gave the boy the power over time, thus the Time Writer was born.
Astrea and Weiss (the time writer) lived an immortal life. They always looked the same way also, they weren’t aging. Astrea saw Weiss as her younger brother, and Weiss saw Astrea as his older sister, even though they looked the exact same age and literally were the exact same age, since “time didn’t pass”. Same with Astrea’s creations, time didn’t pass for them either. They were immortal, until Astrea begged for Weiss to destroy the world in some way, since she wasn’t satisfied. She wanted the planet to be gone. Weiss created the curse of mortality/aging. After this, the humans began to reproduce and Astrea’s problem still wasn’t fixed.
Astrea wants to get rid of the world(s) with humans while Weiss (the time writer) wants to reverse to a time without humans. Since the ideals of the gods clashed, they began war. Existence disagreed with both of the gods, that's why it took both of their powers away. Its plan was to create 8 newborn human beings, to make Astrea and Weiss think differently about the humans. They could only receive their power back by having four of the girls' consent. The girls weren't planning to give their power away easily because Existence waited 18 years for the girls to develop emotions and have a past before allowing them to enter the book. The girls were not aware of any of this. Both gods had one soldier each to use to manipulate the girls, which are: the boys.
While the girls grow up, Astrea and Weiss are sent to their world to observe humans. The boys lived their entire lives in the Unwritten Book, which started off quite empty. Existence gave all the girls and boys a diary for them to have a “home” inside the book. Every time the girls wrote in their diary their vision and imagination, thoughts, dreams and creations appeared inside of the book world for the boys to see. The boys started bonding with them. Existence didn’t intend for this to happen, and the gods claimed it was unfair because now the boys grew a relationship with the girls they would refuse to manipulate the girls. So, Existence removed the boys’ memories. The boys were also allowed to create things with their diary. While the boys noticed their memory fading away, they created temples with their memory fragments inside them. Boy1 created the temple of thunder, blood, fire and darkness. Boy2 created the temple of nature, poison, ice and light.
Meanwhile there was something the gods didn't know anything of. There were cloaks guiding the girls, unseen by the naked eye. Only the girls themselves were able to see them. Those cloaks allowed the girls to develop their power and become more aware of what they are capable of.
The gods reside in a book called “The Unwritten Book” created by Existence. No one knew what the keyholes were until the girls were given keys by their personal cloaked figure. The book has always been unlocked, however upon opening a regular human being would only see pages with text and images containing a “fairytale” (which is actually reality) created by Existence. When the girls revisit their human world and open the book again using the 8 keys combined, Space and Time will be destroyed and replaced by Light and Darkness. All the girls will gain the power of Existence and The Writer will finally take a permanent shape.
Existence also visited the human world. He was seen as a famous writer by many. Everyone has read the Unwritten Book at least once. The girls also knew Existence, two of them even worked for him as assistants (girl4 and 7). Girl7 and 4 heard rumors about the book being haunted and started to read about it in Existence’s library. They found little information, but managed to put all the pictures and vague text together into a big image. The girls remained silent about what they knew, because even though they believed it, they were sure no one else would. Once the girls turned 18, he decided the girls were ready to enter. The past 2 years, all the 8 girls have been working in Existence’s library because Existence wanted them to learn to know each other. Without hesitation they all accepted. All the 8 girls became great friends faster than expected. Half of the twin pairs already separated, and half didn’t (Girl3 & 6 + Girl2 & 4 were still together). So it was also a beautiful and emotional reunion for the girls who separated. When it was time to leave, all the girls disappeared one by one except for girl7 and 4, leaving their belongings behind.
After Astrea and Weiss have observed the world, they changed in a way. In a way, they agreed more with each other because Weiss didn’t defend the humans anymore. Instead, he wanted to reverse to a time without humans so a new, better world would come out of this. Since he controlled the power of time, he knew that the living beings would possibly not make the same mistake again, but possibly will. He wished to control the mind, until it started to take over a better pattern but this was not within his power.
