Title: Hello, have an idea, need support!
Post by: Dead_Wilson on September 11, 2010, 04:43:16 PM
hello, im new here, I'm Bryan Wilson, have been trying to find a good team of programmers, artists and watnot. i have limited programming and no artistic talent so im hoping i can rally some people.
   My idea revolves around a indiana-jones esque guy named Caine Gabriele, who is searching for legendary treasure. I always loved the Indy point and click games and would love to do stuff in that vaine

The things I will need are

- More story writers (not needed)

I basically can do all the story and concepts plus dialog, but my limited programming skills limit me, i am also not the best artist. I know i'm new (and maybe late?) to this program and community, but hopefully someone will think this idea is great and that they wouuld like to help. I am still working on the overall story but it will be a serious and semi light-hearted, With the same style of the Indiana Jones games. So if your interested pleace respond with what you can do.

Hi There!

So please tell a little bit.....
you heave mentioned a bit, please tell more

# type of game (guess it's an adventure game with Point and Click)

# (Basic) idea / story of the game
---Indiana Jones Game Copy?

# Who's your main character? What's his goal?
Caine Gabriele - Find treasure?

# What is the world you will play in like?

# Quest/Puzzle/Riddles?

# Length/Duration of the game?

#what develomentsoftware you wanna use? (Wintermute, AGS, All by yourself programming (don't do that)?!!?)

# can you be a project-manager? (sorry for the harsh question, but without a plan...)

What kind of Visuals do you wanna make?
(3D-rendered or drawn?
(Pc ((Google Sketch/3dStudioMax/Maya)/(Photoshop/GIMP/CorelDraw...))/Pen and Paper/Watercolors)

Do you wanna have speech?

### and please tell us about your team and yourself, Bryan!

Greetings MagicMike

ps: I can draw a bit 2D stuff!(Stills no animation, I would try to do animation but was never into it!!!)
so art/writing would be my interest! (but you said you are enough writers, right?)
I know a guy who likes to mix sound and is good in cinematic scores/classical music. no! ;-)
or as Jones would say: Fly: Yes! Land? NO!

Yes, I'm planning an point and click, and i would like to have a rain forest (or jungle) setting, i don't want a terribly long game with the puzzle and riddles. As for the software, I am more comfortable using AGS, but I am very flexible. I will be project manager, if i get enough people who are interested, but my schedule only allows me to work on weekends (and a small bit on week days). As for now, I am totally flexible on programs, but drawn 2D is what i am shooting for. As for more about me, I am doing this because of my love of the point and click, and i don't have a 'team' per Se, but they're all a few of us who made up some of the concepts, but its only about 2 guys (they are not very big on design, programming, more on writting) For speech, I don't plan on having it, but a dialog tree would be something I would like to have. Again, this is purely a small project I would like to see come to life, I would appreciate any help and/or input. Thanks!

I apologize for the slow response, but I will make sure to answer quickly

Hi Ryan!

You don't have to appologize!
I like the idea, who does't love dr. jones!

oh, sorry I not Dr. Jones (TM), I m just an illegal copy in an homemade adventuregame!

So you seem to have some experience with ags, that's fine, so your not brand new.
what program you use does not matter, both are more or less the same.
wintermute has some advantages, hence more things to decides and to know about!

How far is your project? (Idea, Concept, Script/Writing, Programming....?)

I can do a bit writing/story concept/2D graphics, I not a pro, a hobbyist!
Never done an adventure, but always wanted. I do GIMP.
(but you have enough writers)...i inventing quest/puzzles is something i like!

As you, I am only a weekend shuffler! Next week my graphic tablet will arrive.

Do you know how this personal mail stuff works here!

Greets from germany!

Ok, so I have been busy, BUT  I was able to get most of the script and story related stuff out of the way. I was just wondering, if I could see some of your art samples. but I appreciate your interest and I hope I can get this project off the ground.
