  1. Heroes : new Dawn is a card game I created on my own about 5 years ago. It was a physical card game based on an 2D MMORPG that I was lead Developer of. After about five years of development, that game fell through and the development team disbanded, but a few months before that happened, I began to work on the card game just to see what I could come up with.    Heroes : New Dawn is a finished physical card game that never went further because of lack of testers in my area. I could never get the required testing done before moving into a phase where I spend money to order finished cards, play matts/boards, chips, counters and special dice. So, I stopped work on the game about four years ago.   Recently, I was just playing Faeria, and I thought.... Hey, I made a card game that couldn't be finished due to physical limitations, but if I were to make it digital, the game could be finished rather quickly and distributed around the world!   So, this is my attempt at finding people who can help me work on making the game digital.   Here are some basics...   - The game is focused around two main game modes, 2v2 PvP and 5 v 1 PvE - 2v2 PvP consists of two teams of two players trying to beat the other team - 5v1 PvE consists of five players versus an AI ( or possibly a player) who controls the adventure module. The physical card game had a player run the module, but that might be tricky in an online game.  - Adventure Module is basically a set of combats and challenges which has mini bosses and a final boss or two. - The game currently has 5 player classes done, with over 60, yes 60, more waiting for further expansions. The MMORPG had over 60 classes, so planning for future classes are basically done as well. - You build your class like you are playing a MMORPG, you have equipment cards, weapon cards, and skill/spell cards to fill up your skill bar. - There is a system for players to level up in the physical card game as they play modules, sort of like dungeons and dragons, and this system would translate perfectly for online play.   What I'm looking for....      Programmer(s)     U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY   I need to find a programmer who can code this game, or maybe a few programmers who can work together to make the game possible.   I want the game to be basically like Shadowverse or Faeria, where you can download a client and play with people online. How the structure of servers or whatever is beyond me.   I am NOT looking for first time hobbyists. I'm serious about finishing this game, and getting a product out. So have experience programming.       Artists     U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY   At this moment I'm not sure if the art for the game will be illustrated art, or pixel art. I haven't decided on an aesthetic yet. So for now, I'm not picky with art.   Basically, nothing has been decided as far as art direction is concerned. I'm an artist, but I would like to find an artist be the art director and in control of the overall look of the game.   I am NOT looking for first time hobbyists. I'm serious about finishing this game, and getting a product out. So have experience drawing.     My goals.....   1) Get a working version of the game running so we can start a kickstarter.   2) Then get the game ready for Steam and/or other PC platforms. Revenue Share/Split....   Once the game goes into Kickstarter, whatever we raise will be split among developers who need it.   For instance, if I have a programmer and an artist, all the money will go to you guys, not me, and maybe into hiring more programmers and artists.   I have a full time job, so I don't seek any development money for myself.   Once the game goes public, basically on Steam / PC in general, then I'll benefit from the game's sales.   But I want developers to know, I have no interest in making money for myself until the game is released.      Contact me on Skype as BuffoTheArtClown    or    eMail me at Trollface666@gmail.com.

  3. 3 Steps to Mastering Your Game

    Thank you very much for this article. I have a game coming out in a month, and this article was timed perfectly. Much appreciated!
  4. Help with Tablet + Art combo

    Thank you gentlemen. If I decide to go down this route, after a week or two of using what I get, I'll report back to you :)   Take care and happy developing!
  5. Help with Tablet + Art combo

    Wow that is a lot of info!   Most of that, I think, is way beyond what I'm loking to do.   I can't have a large computer at work, so it has to be small, say 10" screen or less.   And I just want to do sprite work, so I don't require any kind of fancy power or anything. Just tap and drop a pixel. I'm mostly looking to draw environment sprites on my down time.  I was thinking of getting some tablet for a hundred or two and using a cheap or free program for pixel art. Not looking to sketch or draw, don't need pressure sensitivity. If I didn't hate MSPaint I would just use that on a mobile device. I'll probably look into getting some tablet for 200 bucks and GIMP. Any suggestions? Or does GIMP run pretty much the same on any tablet?
  6. Greetings! At work, I have a lot of downtime, so I am looking to invest into a portable computer and an art program so I can draw while at work. The computer doesn't matter. It's really about what kind of art program I can use on it that matters. I am looking for something that can emulate Photoshop 6's Pixel editing capabilities, i,e, grids, pixel painting, etc.... Basically whatever a pixel artist uses on PS is what I want on the tablet. I assume the best deal I can get is a cheap tablet and GIMP, but maybe there is something more out there?  Any suggestions?    - BuffoTheClown
  7. Looking for game creator tool kit

    I am not above learning how to do basic programming to get some things done, but I will check out those links you chps have given me. Very friendly and helpful, thank you
  8. I'll keep this brief as to not bore anyone... I am normally a game designer and artist, but for once I actually want to just create my own game. I am looking for a program, such as the old RPG Makers on the playstation, which basically gives you the frame work to make a game for non programmers. You basically just reskin and edit everything to suit the needs of your game. Here is a list of "wants" I would like to have; 1) Simple 3D world. 2) Online MMO type capabilities Also, on a side note, I would like to find the same thing but for 2D sprite based isometric/top down view games. This is just for me to fool around and get some ideas off the ground. Nothing grand, nothing fancy.... I do NOT program at all. I just draw stuff - Diego
  9. Do i look hierable? (art)

    Yes you are very hire-able. What scares me is your skill in a few years.... :)
