Copter! Project Seeks Programmers and Artists

The Copter! Project is seeking 3D programmers, network programmers, 3D Modelers and general programmers. We are in *desperate* need of an OpenGL programmer to help with our 3D engine design and programming. General programmers are needed to help with sound, AI, etc.

The Copter! Project aims to create a game where the player is a helicopter pilot whose duties include: fighting fires, transporting police, assisting police in high speed chases, transporting injured people, getting video for news stations, search and rescue, and much more!

Help Wanted for Copter! project

We are seeking programmers, 3d modelers, and people with good ideas for the project! We would like to create a game similar to SimCopter, but more modular and extensible, and feature-filled. We aim to create a game that is completely modular, allowing for the user to become another character, such as a policeman, with a simple module. We also would like to have more and better missions than the original SimCopter. Out aim is to support as many platforms as we can, so porters are needed.
