So you've reviewed the requirements, and think you would make a good addition to the team.  Great!  In order for your application to be considered, please adhere to the following guidelines and application requirements.  Create a new thread in this forum with a title that includes the position you are applying for. In your thread please include the following information:

-Position applied for
-Relevant Experience
-Programs used

In addition to the requested information, you MUST include sample work for all Art, Sound, and Design applications. Your application will not be accepted unless you include a decent amount of work that reflects your skills for the position you are applying for.  Your work should be high quality, in a finished state, and relevant to the position you are applying for.  Part of what we look for is the ability to finish projects, so WIP work will not help you unless it is able to stand on its own merits. 

If possible, please display images within the thread itself, and provide direct links to all other work. Cite all things relevant to the work (programs used, wireframes if needed, etc).  If other people were involved in the creation of the work, be sure to state exactly which parts are your work.   

Please treat your application seriously, and use proper punctuation and grammar to the best of your ability.

After you post an application your work will be reviewed by the current development team.  You will most likely receive a good amount of comments, critiques, and questions from all areas of the dev team.  The dept lead for the position you are applying for will review your application, and make the final decision on whether to move your application to trial status.

Once you have received the go-ahead from the dept lead, your account will be upgraded to trial status, and you will be able to view the trial member forum.  Review the trial guidelines that are posted in the trial forum, and create a new post requesting a trial.  The dept lead will post a trial project for you to complete, and if you are able to complete the trial to the satisfaction of the dev team, you will green-lit by the department lead and managers, then brought on as a full developer. 

Thanks again for applying and for showing interest in our game.
