I've decided to ... build my own text adventure game in Java. I've got a good understanding of classes(abstract, immutable), interfaces, and methods. ... Let's assume I complete my text adventure game, what are my chances of becoming a game designer?
Are you sure "game designer" is the job you're going for? Because it sounds more like you're going for a job as a java programmer. Are you aware of the job requirements for a game designer?
This is EA we're talking about..... Would be a pipe dream, if it was any other company. with EA, they're more likely to march in, take our stuff, and claim they made it.
Your post is unclear. Either you're saying you want to hire EA out of your own pocket to do animations for your indie project, or you're saying you're modding an EA game. Do you still have a contract question?
questions: Any of you know a good way of networking a small team like the one I just mentioned? could I use Gmail or some other form of email ? How long will it take to complete all the tutorials, and then the dungeon crawler? how much will it cost? any estimates?
Those are not Game Design questions. Those are producer questions (Production/Management). Shall I move this to the appropriate forum, or are there also Game Design questions in this thread?
Now, I want to hire a game writer, but not on a freelance platform, on a website specialized for game designers and/or writers because tge payment will be deferred. For example, I am looking for 3D artists on BlenderArtists forum.
You want to "hire" someone, but payment will be "deferred." Great. That means you want to hire an amateur. Because professionals don't work on spec. Your best bet is the Classifieds section here on GameDev. I don't know where else to find suckers I mean people willing to work on spec.
P., that's awesome that you have several million dollars for this project. I hope you don't fritter it away! First, hire a technical director (someone with several projects already under his belt, and lead experience). Then ask him or her your questions above. Good luck!
