Attention All Freelance Programmers/ Artists!
A good friend of mine is looking to gather a small group of game creators to put together a 100% Original RPG Game. If you are interested in joining the project, and think that you may be able to contribute, please read these few brief guidelines to make sure that you are qualified to take on the position ;]

(For Programmers/ Coders)
You MUSTknow how to use either (Game Maker 8, Unity 3D, or RPG Maker VX Ace)

(For Artists)
There will be a lot of sprite work in this game, and if you can draw it would be a huge plus.

(For EVERYONE)
Know that is project will be a 100% commercial operation. We will be shooting to distribute this game under a digital distribution license

(For EVERYONE)
We plan to devote a lot of time and effort to this project, and we would only like to hear from Individuals who will be able to (A.)Do Their Part (B.) Will Be Reachable

If none of these things are a problem for you, you may just be the individual for the job!
My buddy Ben will elaborate a little more on the project here in this thread & provide contact details. Once everything is consolidated, we will move the team to a Titanpad and start from there :].

I'm super stoked to hear what you all think, and I really hope to hear from some of ya soon!

Thanks for your time guys, we really appreciate it!

Hey guys! I'm Ben (or Re-Collect).

If you guys have any questions about the specifics of the project or would like to contact us privately in any way, just post letting us know, and we'll get back to you ASAP.

As for the project itself, we are looking for a few people just to get this project off the ground. 1-2 dedicated spriters, 1-2 dedicated programmers, and possibly some miscellaneous contributors.

Also, know that if all goes well, I will be planning to build the team into an Indie developer company.

And with that, I hope to hear from some of you guys. Thanks!

Hey, I'm pretty interested in this project. I'm an artist, and I can draw pretty much anything fantasy/sci-fi, but not nature-y stuff. I don't know the specifics about this project, BUT if it is a similar to my idea, we might as well merge resources. I have a programmer and a amazing background artist. I know a few beginning animators. PM me some details on your project!

Just to let everyone know, we are still looking for people. Unfortunately our projects are too different to combine our resources on.

This project sounds pretty interesting.
I'd be happy to contribute some male teen voices if they're needed.

We just may need voice actors, but we probably wont be looking for that help until later in the project; we will definitely keep you in mind when we get there ;]

I'm looking for people to work with. I'm a voice actor and can do some adult male and crazy voices.
Just check out my demos, I'm not really even sure how many voices I can do, lol.

So if you need voices at some point, let me know what kind of voice(s) and I'll give it a shot.

Also, sorry to double post guys, but I realized I haven't addressed what me and Nick will be working on.

I will be doing story development, designing, spriting, programming (varying depending on the program we use, however), and music/SFX work.

Nick will be doing music/SFX, spriting, and possibly voice acting in the future.

So, we are capable of doing the work needed for the project (we aren't some kids asking for help on a project that we know nothing about, basically). We just need more people to get the project done in a timely and professional manner.

Hey guys!

I'm a game designer/scripter that is looking to work on some shipped titles. I have experience in Unity3D, scripting with Javascript and C#. I also do UI and sound design and have a background in project management if needed. I have the ability to write professional game design documents and am open to learning any sort of programming language or engine quickly.

Here is an update on the information of the project. Copy and pasted from another forum, lol. Look here if you want to know more details.

"Hi!
I'm Ben (or pichuscute). I'm starting a unique 2D RPG game that will be developed for the purpose of eventually licensing and selling the game. I have got a small team of 3-4 together, but we are currently lacking someone else to help with pixel art/spriting/animation.

Who we currently have on our team:
Nick (Music/SFX/Voice Acting/Management)
Me (Everything)
Tristan (Programming/Music)

*We have also had offers for voice actors if we need them in the future, and may be including someone to help with concept art.

What we need:
We need a spriter/pixel artist who can devote a good portion of their time and energy to work on this project. If you can draw concept art, it would be a big plus, but this is not necessarily needed. An example of the kind of art style we are going for is here: http://takam.files.w...011/05/area.png

Story Summary:
The project itself will be a turn-based RPG in a fantasy feudal Japan setting. The story will revolve around a church that plays a major role in everyone's lives (think the Dark Ages), but has gone corrupt (which you find out throughout). However, the main character will be involved with the church for the majority of the game. The character will begin as a samurai/crusader-type who works for the church. During his travels, he will begin to find more bad than good caused by the church and will help the people the church has hurt. The game will be dark and focus on many serious topics, such as death, religion, and other philosophical topics.

World Development
The world will come alive in many ways. As stated before, the setting will be a fantasy feudal Japan-like world. This world and everyone in it is run by a large church that controls everything. During your travels, you will come across people and villages in need of help due to problems caused by the church and it's minions. These problems will be largely based on reality i.e. The Dark Ages and many state religions. The world itself will have a variety of fantasy settings, but will take place primarily on a mountainous island much like Japan. It will include mostly small village areas but that will not be all it has. For example, the church will be particularly flamboyant in design and size compared to everything else you will see.

Character Bios:
Currently only the main character, who I will refer to as player, will be important enough to include here. The majority of the characters in the game will be confined to their homes and villages while you will work, for the most part, alone (think MushiShi's episodic structure, but in a video game). So, player will be a young samurai who works for the church. This is a revered position by the culture, so he has gotten it, much to the pleasure of his family and his village. Player, however, feels pushed into this position and is doing it for his family more than for himself (the family will get benefits). But, nonetheless, he believes in the church very strongly, so he is happy to do it. The character's personality shy, kind, honorable, and generous. He likes to help people more than anything, and will always help someone in need. This will play a large role in the development of the story and every character in game.

Other characters have not been finalized, but the focus will be primarily on just the player anyway. (A protagonist, although will exist in a general sense, will never actually be revealed, due to the anti-climatic nature of the game's ending).

Anyway, I'm sorry if the story sounds a bit like rambling, but general idea is there. So, if this sounds like something you would want to be involved with, let us know via PM, or better yet, e-mail me at: recollectmusic@live.com

Thanks guys!"

Lmao, yeah, unless you illegally downloaded the engine, of course. Tons of games are made with game engines. Unreal engine is most popular, but there have been some games made with the other ones, too. To The Moon, for example, was made in RPG maker, and it is available on Steam. I believe some PSP games were made with Game Maker as well.

Heyo! I'm very interested--I'm an artist, and though I've only had some limited experience with sprites, I still feel I could do a good job. I wasn't able to see the link to the art style, is there a chance you could repost? Meanwhile I'd love it if you browsed my gallery :)

Sorry, I've been so slow to respond to you. I've been on vacation, haha. But, you definitely sound like just the person we need. And, yeah, I can repost. http://takam.wordpress.com/pixel-art/ (If you scroll down, it is the top middle tileset) Also note, this isn't exact, just a general idea, because these are not mine. Anyway, we could definitely use someone in art, because I'm the only person that can do much at the moment. So let's get into contact and see if we can get things rolling. :)

I just wanted to update this topic to say we now have about 5-8 offers for voice actors which we may use in the future, 1 game tester which we may use in the future, and most importantly, we have found ourselves a spriter for our team! So, we now have a main programmer, spriter, and game designer, as well as someone to do any music, misc, as well.

With that being said, if anyone else is interested, we could always use another spriter and/or programmer, but otherwise, we are getting this game started. Thank you to everyone who responded to us through PM or this topic. :)

I've worked with RPG Maker XP and RPG Maker VX, but I haven't touched the source code of it.
I'm no programmer and can't understand that, so when I ever made anything, I always used the default inventory and equip menus and such, but I did do quite a bit of work designing.

So if you're in need of a world designer I can do some of that, and I can also set up events and such.
Setting up characters, items and stuff like that in the database within the program.
Making maps, houses, NPCs and such.

If you want I can send you the game I made when I was like 15 or something. (never completed)
I wasn't focusing on anything, it was just for the fun of it and for the experience, just learning stuff.

Both of you, thank you. I'm currently in contact with a programmer already, but if that falls through, I may contact one, or both of you to get involved. I will post or PM you within the next couple days to let you know for sure. However, it should be noted that otherwise, we now have only a need for one more spriter/pixel artist for our team. So, thank you to everyone that has been willing to help!

Are you fellas still looking for programmers or possibly considering storyline/dialogue support for the project? I'm not exactly a polished professional, but over the past ten years I've dabbled in just about everything: TIBASIC, RPGmaker(years ago), Flash/AS3/Stencyl, GameMaker, Java, C++, XNA/C#. I also have some (paid) experience working with a game company out of Austin, TX writing fantasy-based storyline and dialogue. I've worked on many projects over the years, but most turn out to be tech demos more than anything due to a lack of visual artistic ability on my part. If your project ends up falling into the GameMaker, Stencyl, or XNA development frameworks, however, I do believe I could be a valuable asset to your team. Anywho, if you are looking for more help, I'd love to be considered!

Many thanks,
TyPhyter
