    Lightbulb Hobbyist game creators looking for partners

    Who Are We?
    Me and my friend from across the pond are looking to make a 3D in-browser MMORPG. We're looking for people who find creating fun applications fun to make! Neither of us get paid for our work, we do it on an adhoc basis and see it as a hobby. We would like any people interested to feel the same way!

    What Are We Offering?
    This is purely a hobby-based partnership without pay. There are no time scales or deadlines, only the offer to chill out on Skype and bounce ideas off each other. Me and my friend are both fresh to the 3D game programming arena, but I (Dan) have experience in creating 2D games and he (Trey) has extensive browser and server back-end coding experience. We're very relaxed about workload, and the reason we are looking to do this is it is our dream to make a truly fun and engaging game that people genuinely enjoy playing.

    Who Are We Looking For?
    A massive priority will be given to people that are not scared to come onto voice comms as this will aid with the small community aspect we are looking for. Our game is not yet fully planned to completion, so any additional helpers would be able to really put their mark on the project. The environments we are using are Unity3D, Javascript and Blender, though C# can be used too, but no real help can be given for that language. Really, any coding experience is enough, and the will to learn and succeed in creating a program will pay dividends!

    Closing Words
    We're looking to enjoy the company of our peers, associates and partners in crime Nothing more, nothing less. It's hard to find people interested in what we do, GarageCoders are hard to come by in the outside world! But if you want to be a part of our small independent game creating group of game addicts, then please get in touch! And don't forget we're always on Skype, so we're but a click away!

    Thanks for reading the essay! We hope to hear from some of you soon!
    Dan and Trey.

    ps. Reply to this post and we'll get back to you ASAP!
    pps. We do not plan to sell any of our projects, but should we make a game that's worth selling, I would personally see to it that people get payed for their share of the work!

    Interesting...

    What's the genre for your MMORPG? Fantasy? Historical? Space? Modern Wartime? Mafia? Something new and different?

    Not directly related to your request, but might I just say that it's nice to see such a straight forward, down to earth thread in this section. Best of luck in your quest mate.

    The game we're looking to make is somewhere between RuneScape (I know, it's terrible) and Final Fantasy 11/14. Somewhere between the two wouuld be absolutely ideal, graphics are a big part of most modern games.

    I and my friend are big Final Fantasy fans, and the 2D game I began working on was based on an early Final Fantasy type game, but the screen was much bigger ^^.

    To sum up, we're looking at making a fantasy style RPG, keeping in mind it needs to go online at some point so the game design and development must have that at the forfront. So anyone interested in making a game of that nature for fun, let me know

    Just as a reminder, I'm always on Skype so if you want to see if we have the right kind of thing going on just add me on Skype and we can get rid of any discrepancies.

    Thanks for the replies so far
    Dan.

    As an assurance of my dedication I am here bumping my own post :P

    Still looking for someone who's happy to give some free time trundling through the plethora of managerial, technical and artistic workings behind a fully functional game

    It's hard work folks, but it's so rewarding!!! Just as any other activity, it's only fun when there's a difficultly element!

    note to mods: This post is more than just a free bump, it shows activity and enthusiasm on my part, please don't call the forum-fuzz.

    As an update to what I'm planning, I want to say I'm looking to create a small group of people who are focused on a common goal, which would be to make a fully functional game environment.

    The type of game has yet to be fully decided, but that's why we need a small group to begin with, in order to get a project we're all happy with to work on.

    I've found a man who wants to join in already, just looking for another couple maybe to really get the ball rolling.

    Hope to hear from someone interested in learning how to make a game

    Thanks,
    Dan.

    I have ended this project! Do not bother applying - you will be met with silence and a strange smell!
