Apox is an new and establishing independent game development studio located in Kristiansand, Norway. We are currently working on our first company title which is our own IP and is a Multiplayer RPG game with a dark fantasy setting inspired by and based on Norse Mythology and the game combines aspects from several genres with our own innovative gamestyle. We are a structured team with a solid plan for everything from the game and the company to the marketing even without a publisher, however we will go for a publisher after we have engaged our marketing plan to ensure a high value publisher.
Paid work. Payment depends on the position, but we believe it is good payment for the positions.
We have been evaluating several middleware packages, but have settled on Torque Game Engine Advanced. All fees for game engine and additional software are covered by Apox Entertainment with some exceptions. We have worked a lot already on the TGEA and have a solid codestructure and a network base which our two current programmers have worked on and have modified the engine and will continue to modify it for our needs.
We are also creating our own technology that is very unique and never seen before in a game which will bring the competitive gameplay to a new level, however this remains confidential. This technology is currently being prototyped internally.

I am experienced with making game quality models. But never directly related with games and I have to work online.
