I'd like to apply to be a part of the PokeCA development team!
To preface, this is a bit of an obscure application. You have expressed a need in particularly builders and model animators, and while I would love to help with either of those, I simply don't possess those skills. However, I don't think that brands me as a useless dev addition. As a PokeFanatic and a Minecraft nerd at heart, I am awe-struck with the current progress on PokeCA, and want nothing more than to make this game as enjoyable and controversial as possible.
This is why I would like to join your development team - not as a builder, or as a model animator - but as a sort of... creative mind. I could help in a large variety of ways; for example, ideas for new Pokemon, lore, story line and side quests, easter eggs, etc. As a frequent competitive Pokemon battle player, I could also help a lot with balancing as far as base/max EVs, custom Pokemon type combos, catch difficulties, etc.
Before you decide whether you think you actually need an additional creative mind on board your development team, allow me to state my reasoning. I am fully aware that you have most, if not all of the story line and ideas already created for this game. It would make no sense to put so much effort into a game without a finished storyline, and I've already seen clear evidence of this strong concept through watching your videos and playing the demo maps. You're also clearly capable of balancing everything and keeping that special Pokemon feel consistent throughout the map. With all of this being said, an additional person who could maybe help to write dialogue, or be a fresh pair of eyes and point out continuity errors or suggest alternatives to even the most knit picky story line details, or to just be extremely sure that everything is properly balanced so that the game is consistently fun and never feels too easy or too difficult at unintentional times - that is what I would like to offer you.
But of course, who would I be saying all of this without any qualifications!:
- Age: 18
- Joined Minecraft on 2 Dec, 2012
- Minecraft IGN: Fourest
- Moderator on the "Island Clash" Minecraft server
- Have played every official Pokemon game ever released
- Competitively battle Pokemon via ranked showdowns since 2013
- Extensive knowledge of Pixelmon (useful especially for its flaws, as to not repeat them in PokeCA)
- Currently pursuing a music education degree
- Employed as a Chancel Choir singer and a boat tour actor (I get paid to sing and act so I must be creative, right?)
- Access to the following communication programs: Skype, Teamspeak, Slack, Curse, Steam, Discord
- Ability to screen record and upload to YouTube in up to 1440p50HD
Feel free to inquire about any of this, or even to request sample writing for possible dialogue/lore purposes (I'd rather not post them publicly, but I can provide examples of creative writings, past Uni papers, or even respond to a prompt that you provide). I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have! Please let me know if you are interested ASAP so I can allot time for this project.
I will do my best to check this page daily for a response, but ideally, the best way to initially contact me is via email: [email protected]
Thank you for reading,
P.S. I have quite an extensive music background, perhaps I could find use with the music production as well? Let me know if that sparks your interest
