Open Positions

To apply for any position, or to ask questions, please join our discord (discord.gg/KFZRgew). Alternatively, email us at admin@gentlecolts.org, but our email is heavily spammed and rarely checked.

Writers: We need writers able to write in proper English, with good grammar, little to no misused words, missing, incorrect or overused punctuation, able to follow a format, that has some skill in dialogue, and that would like to work on the genre of the game, slice of life, romance, and probably comedy. Someone who can come up with storylines and convincing social and romantic situations involving the Main characters in the show. We don’t need dark and gritty writers, or people who write huge adventures and such, ’cause it’s out of the scope of the game.
Artists:
Sketchers: Skilled most importantly in expressions and a bit in poses, as several times they’ll need to do floating heads, just showing a different expression. Doesn’t matter what you do the sketches on, and they don’t need impressive detail, but also can’t be stick figures. While they don’t need to be carbon copies of the show style, they still need to be mostly show-like to facilitate work to vector artists.
Vector Artists: They need to be able to make their vectors look as show-accurate as possible, and when translating the sketch, they don’t have to follow the sketch to a T, but make it as truthful to the show as possible, fixing any errors, detail or style related issues in the sketch. There’ll be certain guidelines to follow with all the artists to have a more consistent style and make it as less distinguishable as possible between the different artists in play, and all vectors must be presented in SVG files.
Background Artists: Again, we need vector artists that can be show-accurate, but in this case, most backgrounds will be the same as the show, and will most likely not need to use sketches and instead, have references and bases from show screenshots and such to draw. Most likely will have to do some of the Mane 6′s houses inside and outside, as well as some key-points of Ponyville and not much else.

Others:
Coders: We could optionally use an assistant coder/script translator, preferably familiar with Ren’Py (or competent enough to get the gist fast), to help with various tasks.
Proofreaders and Spellcheckers: We might also have use of people good at spotting aforementioned errors that can happen in writing, to help ease the burden and not require multiple checks by every writer. We would much prefer competent writers, but if you just want to help a little bit this could be an option.
We could also fill in other roles such as sound or PR… just drop by our discord and say hello, we can figure out what you can help us with!

  5. Not sure if you guys are accepting anymore people but I’ll send in an application if you guys simply update one small (I don’t care if it’s a sentence) thing.

  6. You guys could use an editor. The grammar and spelling mistakes are common, and it’s pretty clear the current writer can’t fix them all.
