Lyra Studios, who recently announced the resurrection of their game Reclamation, are currently looking for people to join their team. While as yet, the porject is being done on a volunteer basis, they are offering people an opportunity to get involved in the business. They have also announced that they are looking for Alpha testers for the game.
Los Angeles, CA, March 07, 2006 - Lyra Studios has job openings in all departments. They have updated the 'People' page of the company's website to include a list of positions they are currently trying to fill. The website can be found at http://www.lyrastudios.com. It lists programmers and artists, 2D and 3D, and level designers and web developers. This more open approach to recruiting comes as development for Reclamation, their latest MMORPG project, has been resurrected and Alpha testing for the game was opened to public applicants.
Lyra Studios is offering an excellent chance for up and coming game designers to gain direct experience in the field while they complete their degree or for those who already have a degree to break into the industry. The Lyra Studios team is comprised entirely of volunteers who work in their spare time, though a minimum of 10 hours per week is required. "We aren't able to offer a salary as of yet. What we do offer is a chance for people to start working on games now, to see the development process, and to get that valuable experience that they can put on their resume. We support our team members while they're still on the team and after they've left by offering letters of recommendation or just a reference." -Lyra-Stone, Lyra Studios PR and Marketing Lead.
At this time Lyra Studios is also looking for Alpha testers for Reclamation. The first pool of invites to the Alpha test were sent on Sunday, but there is still time to apply to get in on future pools. The tester application can be found at http://forums.reclamationgame.com.
