Hello there! We are Fireline Games – a small group of indie game developers based in Poland. Since the beginning we have been mostly creating games for game jams but now we want to move on to a bigger project. Our latest game Spheres made for Ludum Dare 32 received a lot of good comments and placed high in final results, so we decided to make a psychological thriller with similar mood, graphics and high quality voice acting.

I love the look of this. I am really into psychological thrillers and I look forward to seeing how this progresses! I hope you find the team members you need so that it can get finished and I can play it 😀

That first image is incredibly atmospheric and quite bates hotelesque.

This is absolutely… out of this world, @ogniok! I was just sitting here in my chair staring at the wonderfully made graphics for the game. Guhhh, already a huge fan! 😀

Do you have a dev blog I can check out?

Also, you might have better luck finding someone by posting up a ludust project or checking out Quick Jobs (paid jobs) or Unpaid Work – these forums let you post up jobs and perhaps people will be more prone to respond to you there!

Really looking forward to this. I’m so hooked!

@wifom We are glad you like it! 😀 We don’t have a  dev blog for this game yet but you can check out our team blog: http://blog.firelinegames.com/

When we start a development blog I’ll definitly post a link to it here, but it will be probably available at the same address.
