Not sure if this is the place to put this or not, I don't really see anyone looking for game designers in the classifieds and since this forum is loaded with them I figured I'd put it here.

 

 

About myself:

 

I'm a programmer who has programmed professionally for 12 years (not in the game industry). I know a wide array of languages. I have no art skills and my game design skills aren't the strongest. I've been hobby game programming for 10 years. 

 

 

My project:

 

A common theme with all the 1/2 finished projects I've done over my 10 years is that dealing with graphics often hangs me up. I enjoy coding gameplay features more than dealing with the type of coding that comes with graphics (animation, timing, positioning of things (mounting weapons), etc). Because of this I've decided to start a project that is console based to get the core gameplay done and if it plays well possibly port it over to 3D.

 

Since I'm not the strongest in game design I'm looking for a game designer (any level) who wants to join the project given the following high level design below. The freedom of the design comes with the battle system, stats, gear, etc. There is no world design or anything like that, and remember it's console based to start with. No ascii graphics or anything just straight up: press 0 to do this ability, 1 to do this ability, and here is the result of the action.

 

The game is to have all the RPG elements you'd expect. It, however, is only about battling the computer. The player makes a profile and then the main menu is 'Fight' (go to a battle) 'Boss Fight' (every 5 levels they can fight a boss and need to defeat to progress level), 'Store' (for upgrades with potion, stats, gear, etc). The game is turned based fighting. Think old school final fantasy without the graphics for now.

 

 

Why I need a designer:

 

I need stats, gear, enemies, formulas, battle strategies, etc all mapped out. I'm just not good at getting into those details myself and I know there are lots of people who love that stuff around here.

 

 

If you are interested either a PM or reply to this thread with a small description of what your vision would be. You can think of me as your code monkey willing to be open about your design given the high level requirements of the general game idea above.

 

 

Thanks!
