Why would anyone want to buy a story from a noobie writer WITHOUT actually being able to SEE the story? If you''re scared they''re gonna steal it, you can always take legal action, since everything you do is automaticlly copyrighted.

Okay, this is ridiculous. No one, and I mean NO ONE will buy a game from you in the wrong forum of a non-for-profit game development site - especially when you refuse to show screen shots, story outlines, even concept art. If you haven't noticed, no one hear is floating in cash and very few of us even write for profit at the moment.
Get a grip, and get to the "jobs" forum. Stop filling our writing forum with your amature hucksterism.

PS: Moreover, it's not possible to "invest" in a game that you claim has already been finished. Gah, I'm so mad right now that I've gone blind...!

You type very well for a blind man.

I agree. This is the most inane thread I've seen in a long time, which is probably why it's getting such a huge number of negative replies. It really sounds more like a scam than an offer.

I have a treasure map to "Teh Bets Geiym Evarrr!!1!!one!". It's a sure thing, and you'll make millions of dollars. All I need is $1000 for food, equipment and mules, and we can set off in seven days. Give me the cash, and I'll come back in a week to get you, partner.

Either post your idea, post links to other examples of your other awesome writing work, post a link to your portfolio that lists the games you've written for, or else get off your high horse and act like you're a person who enjoys writing, and would like to write for games. You're in good company.

Edit: Also, if you're going to be looking for investors, you might want to investigate a new e-mail address. "gamer69666@yahoo.com" doesn't instill a real sense of respect and trust. Also, put some more effort into your business proposals. "ive never done this before but every one who has seen it loved it,im looking for someone who might want to buy it...email me" is not the best pitch I've ever read. Just a thought.

Technically, I went blind just as I typed that last line of text. It was a real problem shutting down my browser.

On topic, I totally agree - there is a definite level of professionalism that is required before anyone will even remotely become interested in a concept. This pitch utterly lacks it.

Become a game financier at no risk!

I, Haijaquan Noobieloid the Twenty-Third, have recently gained ownership of all rights and materials relating to the highly anticipated PC RPG hit "That Other Kingdom Stole My Dad (And He''s The King)!". This game was recently almost completed in a sweatshop employing starving youngsters here in Nigeria; they will not be paid (or fed) until distributor fees/completion funds totalling $25,000 (US) can be deposited to a bank account in Grand Cayman. The first person to make this deposit will gain rights to 50% of the royalties worldwide. Don''t let this excellent, no risk investment opportunity pass you by!

I agree with almost everyone else in the thread. Why are you holding back any information. Yes you have said it is an awsome game, but somebody told be gansters 2 was a good game, and it was terrible...

If you simply set up an angelfire page and listed some screenshots and more detailed storyline, I''m sure more people would be more interested. (and less sarcastic)

Try getting a handle on elementary spelling, grammar, and punctuation before you try to sell your writings to the wrong people.

I'd say your best bet would be to turn it into a short story or novel.
