If anyone wants to jump on board a RTS game development project contact me. The concept and everything is being created by me and my brother. This is going to be a difficult project i am not sure what engine we will be using yet. I might even just decide to create the whole engine myself and learn it all. Note, this is NOT a short-term project. Expect to work on this for a long time for a while. I am ok if you join the group, work on it alittle (or none at all), then go about doing other things. This is a personal project that i want to do for fun.
Their will be no payments for your efforts to help on this project. But "if" we end up turning out a quality project. We will put it out their and see how much money we can make and all funds will be evenly distributed amongst everyone working on the project.
But most likely we will just make it freeware / open-source.
It will either be done with 3-D modeling or sprites. Most likely 3-D modeling.
We have 5 races right now.
Scrill (alien race)
Units are to be announced. We do have some units in mind and what we want to do, but i won't put any of them up just now because i am still researching about how to get this game started. I want to start programming this as soon as possible.
What i need.
I need a team of programmers, and a team of artists. Or just as many people who want to join in as possible.
The programmers will handle all the technical difficulties while the artists will handle the visual. This is obvious but i figured i would put it their incase anyone comes by wondering.
What we want from the artists, i understand flash is big here. But most likely we will need expeirence using tools like blender or 3-D modeling for our units. Also, we need someone who understands User Interfaces (UI). So we can get some designs for our Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) (menu's, drop down toolbars, basically anything you visually interact with on a computer). We need sketches and unique designs of each of our races, including the units we come up with. Doesn't have to be davinci or anything but just something to put in the game.
As for the programmers, even though the artists have a pretty large task. I think us programmers got it just as bad maybe even worse for this project. Most likely i will lean towards creating our own game engine because i want to learn how everything works and is programmed. This will take ages to do and learn how to do. I will get tutorials and you guys can help if you want. Or you can just simply start putting together anything else you think you can, but honestly we need to get the game running and playable as soon as possible. As minimal as possible, but fast, and build on with complexity from there.
I have a sound guy, but i am open ears to seeing if anyone else might want to contribute some sound to this project. We need music and sound effects for various things.
Send me an email here.
or send me a message here on newgrounds.
Or reply to this thread.
School is starting up for me pretty soon so your best bet is to send me an email to my student email. I will be checking that alot more then i will be roaming here on newgrounds.
Just so people know. Their is an indie development team that is working on a project, they have 6 programmers and 6 artists. They say that isn't really enough people to get the job done in a reasonable amount of work + timeframe. Also, they know what they are doing and how to do it. We will be learning the process and trying to do our best at it. Maybe some of you have done this before, maybe you have not. But basically its open doors for anyone who thinks they might want to help out.
