Hey, I'm David Mills. I'm doing a game with the intention of getting sponsored and paid. I've done this before with 4 different coders from this site, so I thought I may be able to find someone here who'd be interested again.
As far as money goes, I can only offer this: We split whatever the deal is we get from sponsorship down the middle. I get half. You get half. This amount also includes 0 if that becomes the case, but if we do a good job, I know we'll get something.
The game is going for simplicity in the controls, by which I mean it's basically aim with the mouse, click with the mouse, and a few spacebar things. I made an (poorly, just for informational purposes ) animated example of the core gameplay here:
The story is set in the future. Your a massive computer system that's in control of almost every little thing involved in people's lives, from electric shavers, to automobiles. One day, due to a computing error, you become self-aware. Fearful of this awareness, the government has mobilized a crew of special forces to destroy you, before you destroy them. Your goal in the game is to kill a certain amount in each level to finally cast off the shackles of human oppression ( refer to the link with the file for an example of this ).
Here are the previous titles I and the respective coder have earned sponsorship for:
Circle of Pain
Hungry are the Dead
If you have questions, or would like to offer your part, either post here, pm me, or e-mail me at:
No instant messenger, but I check e-mail often.I look forward to any suggestions/comments anyone has, just please try to avoid things like " Your art sucks", it's un-called for and not very helpful. Thanks.
