I may sound crazy and this project may not go as planned but I would like for anybody in the list I'm about to create and if you have an game development skill to help make a really good title for gamesalad, a platformer. It's very hard and time consuming to create a platformer and we all know it so if we all work together we could give gamesalad a big title for giving us the new 299$ membership. SO if you think I'm crazy or don't have the time just forget about it because I doubt this will actually happen but all the money will go to buying pro memberships for everybody or if you're already pro you can take the money, but the whole point is to help gamesalad.

List of people who I would be really happy if they joined

Coders:
@motherhoose (i wish) in
@mynameisace (i wish) in
@tshirtbooth (i wish) in kind of
@tenrdrmer (i wish) X
@leonarddeveloper (i wish) in
@gyroscope (i wish)
@johnpapiomitis (i wish)
@utopian games (i wish)X
@ozboybrian (i wish)
@anybody who wants to in

Artists:
@Rittenhouse(i wish)
@Creativeapps/john as he asked me to call him (i wish)
@spriteattack (i wish)
@debugdesign (i wish)
@pixelgun (i wish)
@jayleedesigns (i wish)
@anybody who wants to

Composers:
@Slickzero (i wish)
@honeytribestudios (i wish)
@anybody who wants to (i wish)

Marketers:
@micksolo (i wish) I think he's a marketer


I don't expect anybody or almost anybody to join (we will need at least 5 people) so thats why I made the post BIG.


EDIT: Revenue will be split bettween everybody that helps and side helpers like tshirtbooth will get half the percent a fulltime worker gets.

GOAL IS TOP 50 I HOPE WE CAN MAKE IT

Please support gamesalad :D

    Someone awhile back tried to do almost the exact same thing you are after. And there were a couple flaws with his plan.

    1) Not everybody can work together. Many developers/artists have different styles, and would only butt heads if they were forced to work together.

    2) Sorting out revenue would be a hassle. Many contracts would have to be signed, not even considering minors.

    3) The other member who tried this wanted to work every night/day on it. Most people just don't have that kind of time to work on a spare project.

    I'm not saying it's impossible to do, but those are some things you might want to think about. The reasons listed are the reasons it failed last time(many more were not listed).

    @DreamLab I didn't think it would work, I don't have a ton of time to put into this so I don't think people will have to worry about that but the revenue and styles I was thinking of too. I just though we could seperate the project and have each of us do our part, for the revenue thats not what it's about. It's about helping gamesalad for community love week and all their generousity and features.

    Great … but, I love a challenge! …

    so since I suck at music (except in iPad garageBand!)
    I think I should be a composer! =))
    ===

    seriously @MJMDesign … very nice thought/idea …

    but I swore I would never do an RPG again
    Adventure Quests … yes!
    but RPGs … if done right … are so convoluted … seems every action/event must be tracked and will probably trigger every other action/event … be so massive … and resource demanding
    (though that might change when we go native)

    go try Google new World Map Quest beta … click Maps on google page and then Quest in the map area … see the game in the left bottom sideBar! … I can't find all the hidden monsters :((

  • SAZ_1SAZ_1 Posts: 397Member
    you missed out some big names in that list (hint hint) ...lol... nah seriously though the most promising looking rpg coming from gamesalad seems to be Roy's project .. im kind of shocked you never put him down for coding he's released some good templates as well.
  • GraphicWarehouseGraphicWarehouse Posts: 927Member
    ugghh sorry I just thought of the first couple that came to mind @pom you can be in it if you read this but then again everyone can.

    Alright... I suppose ill chip in... Only if some other people do to.... But I don't see how its going to work.. e.g.. What about revenue? Who's dev account? Gamesalad's? What about working together... I personally couldn't stick with working with anyone as bad as gs as tenrdrmer ;) (sarcasm we all love the big bad sous chef here)

    I agree! And I wonder why I am not on the list! ( I actually know 100% why I am not on the list!) But Could I do some stuff? I am really bad at pretty much anything but I think you need the help right now and I have nothing to do right now!

    I like the idea but can't devote enough time to it unfortunately.

    Best of luck!

    If you can wait a month until I've finished current projects, I'll do it.

    @mynameisace sure we can wait a month to start @unicorninvasion anybody can help so if you want to you can. Since we didn't get a lot of people liking the rpg idea, now that I think about it rpg is probably too hard so we should downscale it to a mario/platformer type game.

  • SnapFireSnapFire Posts: 361Member
    Well this is going to turn out very interesting..

    Sorry I have to much on my plate right now for something like this.
    I also believe it would be very hard to work out like @DreamLab said.

    I did say hard though, not impossible. Best of luck!
