GHC_NL 102 Posted August 27, 2012 Hi guys, we have an idea for which we are trying to find a developer.. But we feel we need more technical information and understanding before making a final proposal... Any help is appreciated!! 1. What are the time / expertise / requirements to develop a 2D web-based game like HABBO? (http://www.habbo.com/) [indent=1]Assuming, [indent=1]a. you'd strip it to the bare essentials (no gestures, no currency, just 1 main room + generic private rooms) [indent=1]b. add instant voice chat functionality [indent=1]c. access the game via browser, on a website with profiles etc 2. It is my understanding that voice-chat is the major bottleneck; the programming of which would be hell, and the server requirements are to be enormous...Can someone agree or disagree ? 3. Costs.... if we were to hire a game developer to do this, what kind of price tag are we looking at? And what about the time-frame from concept to launch? 4. Is this something we could run and host ourselves, with in-house webdesigners/builders? Or would we definitely need a long-term relationship with a game studio? What about servers needed etc? Thanks!!
