About CaveBear Games

Hello there!

My name is Jonathon, I am the Co Founder of CaveBear Games.

I am responsible for the management of our existing team and the creative direction of the Pioneer Project. While not acting as a go between for the various members, I like to dabble in Landscape and Level Design. My most recent work on Pioneer includes the conversion and integration of SpeedTree Models into terrain and the development of detailed height maps.

Why I would like to develop Pioneer:

My interest in game design I would say has developed overtime from my passion for gaming. Playing games has lead to me question the reasoning behind certain game mechanics and the quality and time which goes into producing engaging computer games.

Over time this interest lead me to complete a Diploma in Game Design with a close friend. Together we have watched as the quality of games and the time between a title being released has decreased dramatically.
We want to create a title that is fun to play and feels complete.

Pioneer & CaveBear are more than just a hobby. I would love for CaveBear Games to become a financially stable business for both myself and aspiring game developers. A company you can be happy to come into work for.

With this in mind, we do treat CaveBear Games with a professional yet mature attitude.

Current serving members include:

Jonathon - Co Founder
Jiri - Co Founder
Matt - Sound Artist
Daniel - Concept Artist
Richard - Lead Programmer
Eric - Programmer
Adam - Programmer
Patrick - 3D modeller
Scarlett - Concept Artist
Eli - 3D modeller

About Pioneer - The New World

Pioneer - The New World; is an exciting medieval open world game.

This isn't your typical fantasy medieval game or survival game. Pioneer focuses on the best parts of genres such as survival, crafting, sandbox, city building and role-playing games. with a large focus on player interaction and the worlds detail.

Pioneer is currently being described by us, as an open world medieval RPG. While this remains true to a certain point, the full extent of Pioneer is something we believe the games industry has not seen before.

From the players first few moments in the game, it soon becomes apparent the player has been stranded in an undiscovered world. Fighting against the environment the player must satisfy his hunger, thirst, maintaining a healthy character. Hunting and Gathering will play a big part in early to mid part of the game.

As Pioneer is a multi player game, in time the player will meet other players. This may lead to conflict and the formations of families.

Working with other players, you can develop your family house from a small holding to a hamlet and onto a village and town. Progressing through these different stages will unlock additional building and weapon options to help the player progress further.

While most games are focused heavily on combat, Pioneer will also have a more developed 'domestic side' allowing players to 'stay at home', farm and take up tasks and roles within a town.

Exploration is a big point for Pioneer, our world will be expansive, diverse and filled with islands ready to be claimed by righteous groups!

Period

Pioneer is set in the age of exploration. The Roanoke Colony, the first British Colony has been established on the American Continent, trade routes are beginning to be established with far off lands and the discovery of new and fascinating animals and foods are being tasted by European settlers for the first time.

While set in a fictitious map, the world of Pioneer primarily stays the same in terms of ecological diversity and Biomes.

Our focus with Pioneer is to produce a true to life realistic medieval experience, because of this we rely heavily on historical reference.

Incentive

We offer a revenue share in the Pioneer Project and potential full time position should Pioneer become a success.
While this does not seem to equate to food on tables, this is the only thing we can offer people at this moment in time.
This is a chance to partake in an exciting project that we can only try our very best at.
