Because I'm sure people will have a few questions before they spend the time to email portfolios, etc, I'll try and think up a few questions to answer ahead of time. I'll be as
straightforward as possible
1. The Company- Epix Interactive Studios was officially founded earlier this year. Several members where unofficially throwing together ideas as early as late summer 1999. We are
officially licensed type C corporation in the state of Delaware. We work out of Chicago, but most work is done based on contract, and virtual development is (unfortunately) the only choice we have at this point.
2. What do we do- We started off as doing web design, and now we are currently in development (just got out of the planning stage) of a MMORPG for a next gen console (XBox). We have talked to Microsoft, as well as various other industry contacts. We are looking for a team to put some time to assist us in creating a demo, and joining the Epix team to create this game. All Design documents are completed.
3. Why should I even bother trying this? It's a risk, isn't it?
The biggest risk is not taking one =) We are a company that knows exactly what we want. We have several very creative members, and some real talent. WE are just looking for
more people to add to our immediate family. Our ultimate dream is to have a very personal company atmosphere, where ideas can be freely thrown around, and great games can be made. This is also a great chance for those persons without any game design
experience to break into the industry. Because we are limited in what we can offer you (at this time) we can take chances with people without published games in their resumes, or
those programmers just getting out of school, or about to finish school. Our company is also valuable resume experience.
Thanks for hearing me out, and for anyone kinda so/so interested, contact me via ICQ or email and I'll be happy to answer any other questions you have.
