  1.   ah yes, They are a rare species aren't they? Those who were born to be a gamedev. you'll find them in four places: 1. working at a game company 2. running their own game company (like me) 3. out of the industry due to disenfranchisement caused by the rise of the mass market games industry (IE disgust with non-hardcore games, gamers, and development companies). 4. still in school or not yet in the industry. but they won't have the skill set (yet).   one possibility might be a recent grad from one of the schools like Full Sail.   what skill set / mind set specifically are you looking for?   It's not something i can point at directly, but for example i want a programmer who can understand me when i tell him i want you to imitate the movement of this "X" character from  "Y" game... and he would get me right away.
  2.   I think i didn't make my self clear enough, my problem is not money, i don't want cheap labor, what i want is quality work, im looking for a programmer who has all the "know hows" in developing a game, and preferably someone who is also a gamer.   Believe me when i tell you I've gotten tons of quotations from offshore freelancers or agencies, but most of them don't have the proper skill set to develop a quality game, they all tend to work with a factory mindset, where the main goal is to develop as much apps as possible while maintaining a low cost.
  3.   Sorry for posting in the wrong place, and i appreciate the input, thanks.
  4. I just started a new app games company, and i'm having a hard time finding the right programmer to work on our games. The games that we're making are a bit complex when it comes to programming.   I've tried Elance, guru and odesk, but with no luck.   Any idea where i can find programmers who have the skill to work on app games that are on the higher end when it comes to programming complexity ?
