Looking for a Veteran Programmer 2008-11-29 05:24:49
hello i'm looking for a very experienced and/or all around knowledgeable programmer for a game i'm making.
No this is not me half ass asking around for a programmer because i'm bored and want to attempt a game, i actually need someone who knows what they are doing because i have a semi large game mapped out for the most part and graphics on their way. I tried to get as much of the game concrete before even attempting to ask so i wouldn't set myself up for a half finished game thrown into the unsightly "will never be completed" bin... So i'm looking for YOU!!! Mr. hardcore flash game programmer. What i need from you is to work hard and want to finish this game, and to expect the same from me. If you have problems with my work or have criticism i'd hope you give it to me and want constructive feedback from me as well. (point of that is that we are on the same page with things)
what i don't want is an online game tutorial whore who can copy and paste and doesn't really understand what he/she's coding because that's what i would do lol Because if we need to tweak something and you don't have a grasp of what you're doing... all hell breaks loose.
anyway as for the game ill give you all the details when we are working together. I am completely fine with 50/50 for all income, and only ask that you do the scripting.
Things that are a plus,
someone who's has free time and is online often/ or responds quickly
someone with examples
not extremely immature
has played mario rpg lol
a few details about the game so you can't say i didn't tell you anything beforehand
a full party RPG adventure
colorful style (i hope, at least on my end)
the dreaded random encounter battle system (somewhat dynamic with location...)
2D platforming in the levels.
Story, but definitely not a game that is more reading than playing.......
i know this sounds like i'm asking the world and not giving you anything but i have really high hopes for this and want nothing more than for this to work and i think i have enough work complete to prove i'm dedicated at least.
the graphics are NOT what you might expect in a normal "IM A KNIGHT GOING ON AN ADVENTURE!! LETS SLAY A DRAGON" game. it's a bit imaginative and out there. I wouldn't go close to saying cell shaded but if you are familiar with games with that i hate to say childish? feel.
what my point is if you don't like or don't want to be a part of a game like that, then the choice is up to you.
ok well here is my small list to show what i can do, or a glimpse at my style.
this is a small section of a level Background idea for the first stage after the opening scene and "training" just a simple looking set of hills
(note that it's not finished but it gives you an idea of the feel)
same thing... this is just the lightbox version or something... i have no idea what that means, it's just bigger.
this is something i worked on for the better part of 2007-2008 off and on... and even earlier. This is out there but gives you more of an idea of what the style could have.
Monster's Tutorialby animatorjonesA quick "short" followed by a couple Tutorials hosted by the blue monster!
and again another short example. whipped this up in a couple days.
at this point in time i have a story, 14 enemies colored and shaded and plenty more sketched. (unfortunately this does NOT include attack animations etc... but this is early dev) and a bunch of dialogue written out. This game is NOT completed in terms of ideas but with what i have it's a big game but i've given breathing room.
I told myself i'd get as MUCH done before asking, but I'd like to share the fun (and burden... not going to lie) so i can see this bad boy through.
thanks to those who are interested... now get posting !
