I am looking to scout for a few like-minds that I can bat around ideas for games with (generally simple 2D side scrollers ect - not Call of Duty or anything like that).
I myself am an artist, comfortable with handling the spriting, graphic design etc...
What other talent is needed to create a game like, for example; a Super Mario clone?
I know that there are several instances of individuals building highly popular games on their own out there - but I lack the technical knowledge, and so would be looking to form a small team (3-4 people? Admitedly, an arbitrary estimation).
The focus would be to build (probably free) games casually - not expensive super hi-def 3D MMOs with the intention of making a world dominating profit.
What kind of skills do I need on top of my own art input to make this happen?
