  1.   1. Please do not conduct recruiting efforts in the discussion forums.  When seeking team members, please use the Classifieds section. 2. This appears to be the main reason for this thread, and this is the only reason I'm not deleting what otherwise appears to be a recruiting thread.     Sorry Tom, I am mainly look for someone that "judge" my work, so the cause I talk about a team is for a possible consequence for those who read all the pages with interess. It's a pretty long PDF as you can see, no one as seen it before just because I always tought it would have been refused by everyone. So I fix my topic here: "please what do you think about it? Is it original and interesting?"   Thanks to have not it cancelled. Riccardo.
  2. Hello everyone, I have joined here as I was looking around the world wide web to find a cool community of players, and you really look to be cool ;)   My name is Riccardo, italian, 22 soon, always with the passion of fantasy games. I started brainstorming about games since I was a kid so I really think that fantasy is my strong point.   Since excactly 1 year I have written an arena-rpg game, with classes, environments, theme concepts, and so on...   This game should be pretty unique actually on the market, and can only be compared to Bloodline Champions for the graphic it should has.   I have ulpoaded here 3 super-secret   PDF documents well-written that explain the game dynamics, mechanics so I won't explain here the project: [attachment=14410:Mini Heroes - System.pdf] [attachment=14411:Mini Heroes - Melee Classes.pdf] [attachment=14412:Mini Heroes - Spell Classes.pdf]   PS: I am actually study in the tourism market, that has nothing to do with my passion unlucky, so I'm not a programmer or a coder, I anyway know something about computers like many others gamers but I really need a team for this project.   PSS: I have learnt well about marketing, and I can say that an unique game like this could attract a quite a great segment of players in the world-market.   PSSS: I have seen here that there are programmers that are not good in having cool concept ideas/inspiration. I am surprised about this, so I gladly invite whoever to contact me about having any information / detail / ..things about this game project.   If you have read the main PDF(s), what do you think about this idea? Would it be cool enough to construct a team around it?
