|Position: Designer||Name: Raven Software||
it's that time again! We're on the lookout for a new design position.
Wow, you say, could I apply for this? The answer is a resounding YES!
Here's what you need to do: Send me (Eric Biessman) ONE map utilizing any 3D engine. This could be Quake, Quake 2, Unreal, Heretic 2, Hexen 2, SiN, and Half-Life. In the map, make sure that it is balanced for single player games. We don't want to see any deathmatch only levels. Please include a text file with a short description of what the level is about and what the player is expected to do. I would also like to see the length of construction time and what editor you used to create the map. (It would be nice to see a list of editors and programs that you are familiar with also.)
Also, please include a short bio about yourself and your resume. Please include what you like to do in your spare time, your hobbies, and anything that may make you stand out above the rest. If writing is your forte, include a sample SHORT story. I don't really have the time to read long stories, so the shorter the better.
We are looking to fill this position soon, so if you want to be considered, do it now.
Once again, here's the pertinent information:
Oh yeah, and one more thing... you would have to be willing to move to Madison Wi... we can't have telecommuting. It just doesn't work.
Good luck to everyone, I can't wait to start looking at those maps!
