StoneRage - Established IndieGame seeking animators / rigger

Hello there, we are Mountainwheel Games™, a small indie company which started 2011. We're based in Austria, but our team is scattered across the world and connected via forums and Skype to share and collaborate our work. Most of us have never met. Despite that, however, we've begun development on our first title, an online action game called StoneRage, that takes place in the prehistoric Pleistocene and Eocene eras; times massively ignored and untouched in gaming. Our goal is to complete StoneRage with as much innovative features and ideas as we possibly can to make it unique in every and any way we are able. Our current studio website is coming online soon:

Stone Rage™ is a Free-To-Play online third person multiplayer action game set within the Pleistocene and Eocene eras, featuring prehistoric tribalism, prehistoric landscapes and prehistoric animals. Players will take control of a single character of either a human class, neanderthal tribe or animal genus and wreak havoc in a survival-based game mode. As players win games and progress through achievements, options in weapon layout, upgrades and personalized character customization will be unlock, giving a large array of choices to those who do not wish to completely conform to a single archetype. Every character has a set of unique traits and abilities, as well as unlockables to modify their effects and tactical usage, ensuring that no two games will play the same, and no one player is by default more or less dangerous than another. Situation and opportunity play as much a part in winning a game as how well players use their character skills and environment to their advantage. Since tribal skirmishes and hunts take place across a wide stretch of land, players will encounter sprawling forests with prowling smilodon, vast plains with marching mammoth herds and gastornis scavenging the remains left behind by the prey of dire wolves.
