The American studio Hidden Path Entertainment, which worked with Valve on Counter-Strike: Source and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, has opened vacancies for a new AAA title. From the description, it will be a third-person open-world RPG set in the Dungeons and Dragons universe.
A studio needs a scriptwriter, technical artist, graphics programmer, and a lead graphics programmer to create it.
Applicants, in addition to general experience in game development, need to have skills in working with the Unreal Engine 4 engine and consoles, understand the technologies for creating a variety of visual effects, have in-depth programming knowledge, and juggle operations in 3D mathematics and rendering. In addition to published books, the writer is required to have experience with branching storytelling, which hints at a storyline with dialogue, choices, and alternate endings.
The original Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy board game developed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson and published back in 1974. The franchise’s commercial success has spawned a variety of related products, including magazines, animated television series and motion pictures, novels and computer games.
By the way, recently it became known that Hugh Grant will play the main villain in the film adaptation of Dungeons and Dragons.
