Would love to work with a team like yours. Unfortunately do I have no clue on how to programme:/

If you want many applicants, you could post this on MODDB. Think there are some really talented people there that would love a chance on a bigger title.

Well, this is my first post and i would like to congrat all the members of this team for the excelent work that you have developed so far...

I would love to have an oportunity like this, but i'm in third year of university in Engineering Digital Game Development, at Polytechnic Institute of Cavado and Ave (Technology School) in Portugal,so, i have to finish it.

I found interstellar Marines last year when I got to work with Unity3D for one of our classes. It's really fantastic the work that you've been doing and inspiring.

Keep the good work, but slowly, i hope to get finished and have the oportunity to work with people like you and with a project like this. :)

I'd love to come work for them, it'd be a great learning experience. Unfortunately I'm still studying (for game programmer and in unity no less) and I'm afraid a 5 hour commute either way and outside school hours is just not practical.

Hopefully when I need an internship fall 2012 and a full time job later on they'll be open to applications. Maybe on IM2? ;)

I've listed the job opening on 2 very popular forums and I've re-tweeted it and shared it on Facebook as well.

I wish you guys good luck in the hunt. (Not that you need it, you got sharks!) :)

I would, but I'm still learning how to code, and I don't think someone living in Australia can be much help.

I could be a programmer but I'm too young. Even though I have experience in pretty much every part of game design except advertising the game itself. Well I hope you guys find a programmer who is older and wiser. I'm sure you guys will find someone. Soon I'll be starting my own Indie game company with some friends I know who have practice with game programming, art design, 3D model design, and all that good junk. So we would be too busy, sorry I am unable to help you though. Unfortunatly I've never made major projects since i've only used Unity3D for two weeks then left it to study game servers, but programming languages I'm pretty fluent in. pretty much anything except AppleScript. Again i'm sorry i'm unable to help.
