Unity and Game Developers inXile have today started a ‘Crowdsourcing’ project for the ‘currently in-development’ game, Wasteland 2.
This Crowdsourcing project allows people to submit ‘Artistic’ ideas for the game, and if these ideas are chosen and developed into 3D artwork for the game, then you will be paid for the work as well as given credit in the game’s credits. Its a perfect chance for artists and gamers to get their name in a game as part of the artistic development team.
Basically Each week, inXile will be putting up concept art to be turned into 3D models for Wasteland 2. By opening up the creative process behind their art asset creation, inXile will be able to work with their fans to increase the overall game experience and free up their internal team to focus on elements that directly impact the gameplay of Wasteland 2.
Here is hw the ‘process’ will work:
- Developers/Fans check the inXile page (http://wasteland.inxile-
entertainment.com/unity) for the weekly pick of required assets
- Then they create a 3D model of one (or more) of the required assets, in accordance with the Wasteland 2 style guide, and submit it to Unity’s ‘Asset Store’.
- A special Artist pack has been set-up by Unity to get the process started. Once ready to submit, developers should label it “hold for inXile Entertainment.”
- Once submitted inXile will view the assets, select any that they like, and give the creator both money and in-game credit.
- Even if inXile doesn’t use your asset, models that meet Unity requirements will be made available in the Unity Asset Store which will provide someone else the option to select it and pay for it.
People interested, in this extremely rare opportunity, should head on over to the official Wasteland 2 Website for more ‘in-depth’ details on this creative project.
