#5041658 Buying a "developer" spot on the new Richard Garriot project

Posted by Helenius on 10 March 2013 - 06:26 PM

Hey Gamedev.net

 

I've been a long time lurker, can't seem to find any other post resembling this.

 

The kickstarter project for Shroud of the Avatar, has a pledge for $400, which sounds as follows:

 

Want to be a part of the Development process? This is the level for you! Gain access to the private Developer Chat/Forums and help participate in guiding the game (estimated Developer Chat/Forums access in April 2013). You also get to help create a character in the game as well as name them. When everything’s said and done, we’ll put together a PDF document of various concepts and design documents.

I've never really developed a game, but it is my dream to become one at a point, and currently working on an education towards it.

 

What would your assessment be of this "developer" position be?

 

 

Pros:

I like the overall concept of the game, and have a lot of experience with Ultima Online and feel like it has been one of strongest MMORPG's ever, and therefore think I can add something to the game

I have played almost all MMORPG's to ever launch on the western market(Including some korean/japanese that never made it to the west)

 

Cons:

No idea how much I will get heard, or how they will take in critique/new ideas.

$400 (It's not that I can't afford it, and it is something I would like to do, so I could add it to my CV or something silly like that,or I could look at it as an investment of some sort)
