I seriously got negged for that? Wow... someone needs to lighten up.
*preps for another neg on this post. weeeee*
OFF TOPIC How do you even give a neg vote now? I didn't think it was possible. I thought we adopted the 'like' culture.
ON TOPIC I'm not involved in your project and dont know the finer details. However, as an outsider, it feels like you are trying to screwing your colleagues over somewhat. It looks like you have outsourced the work you couldn't undertake yourself and now you want to reap the majority of the benefits and pass on as little as possible to the other contributers. I don't mean to sound like an ass but I think everyone should be fairly compensated. You don't mention any percentages so could I be completely off the mark but saying "I want to make sure that when I sell this game, all the profits will go to me, then I will pay my 'team' according to their effort" sounds like you will be taking the vast majority. I think you should show more respect to the rest of the team and hopefully you will work on more projects in the future
I must also add, congrats on taking a project this far though
Well I am not trying to screw them over at all. It just that, I started the team, started making the game by myself. Got a domain name and hosting service then realized that I don't have time to learn web development so I "Hired" a web developer. He is basically doing one job for me, he wasn't in this on the start, he joined just to do the website. And secondly, I am not trying to cheat the other programmer out of anything. I value all the work he has done and I am planning on giving him a hefty royalty for this game. And when I said he was the co-owner, I meant I wanted to hire him as kinda my right hand man, the guy who is running this company with me and sticking with me. He is even considering coming to the US when he turns 18 and moving near me so that we can work in person. SO trust me, I am not planning on cheating him out.
And thank you for the congrats, I probably could have never gotten the project this far without the help of my other programmer.
