I wrote a full treatment and script for a game. It's called Gearhide. I'm in the process of making minor changes and editing for coherency, but it's all pretty much there. I'm looking for some people who want to make this thing real. It's about a farm boy turned soldier turned freedom fighter in a budding steam punk world. Most people use swords and bows but several nations have been developing steam powered technologies. (This is meant to be part one with more to follow depending on reception)

It's a side scrolling hack and slasher with cutscenes between each level. Features are to include an in game upgrade menu(very basic in design atm) and an unlockable arcade mode after story mode is completed. Possibly a save feature.

I have the full treatment available for serious inquiries if my vague and terrible description caught your interest. Let me know which part you'd like to tackle and maybe a sample of your work. I can do some of the artwork myself if needed but I don't think my coding skills are up to par for a project of this scope yet.

Thanks for reading, hope to hear from you.

How long do you think it would take to make this thing?

I've never attempted a project of this scale before so I'm not entirely sure, several months at least. There will need to be some dedication on everyone's part to see it through.

I don't have my script in front of me but if I recall there are 12 or 13 levels with various objectives and a cut scene before each. Plus the bonus arcade mode which will basically consist of character selection and then survival of increasingly fast spawning bad guys.

I want this to be front page material. I want it something the participants can be very proud of.

What type of music are you looking for? I might be up for that.


Check out my band's most recent song, and let me know what you think! :D

something peaceful, something ominous, something heavy, something sad yet victorious, something epic, something urgent.

I don't have a specific vision for the music set in my head but I could use songs that fit each of those descriptions.

I could do voice acting for it. And I could give a go at making a song or two.

And I could help with art...but first I'd like to see if this will actually work out and not be a fail project if you know what I mean...

We shall see. I have several people interested, just want to get a full crew before we start working. Don't need to waste anyone's time with something that won't work out. I will bring this project to life at some point if there's not enough interest now, even if I end up doing it all myself. I just don't have to proper as3 training or experience to begin coding something like this yet.

Well, I'm down for working on the soundtrack if you want. I'll keep checking back here.

I'm shutting it down.

I don't want to leave people hanging. There have been too few responses and no one can commit. I will resurrect this project in the future when I can be more dedicated and push for more people.
