Forming a team

CORE GameCORE Game Posts: 280Member, PRO
Hello coder, talented people and geeks,
I am looking to form a team to start working on a simple and fun game, we will surely use GameSalad.
This team should include:
- 2 GS Developers (I am one)
- 1 Sound Effects and Music composer.
- 1 graphic designer (Sprites and animations)

Rules:
-Only 18 years old and above are allowed to join (The older the better)
-Previous experience is required.
-Pulling out of the team at any point will cause you to lose any credit (or money) you should earn, so make sure you will receive your money first before leaving the team.

How we will work:
-Every day we will have to gather on skype and discuss the game to come up with a good idea (game play + graphic type + music), after we are done we will be creating jobs/tasks and start assigning it using my task management website.
-Of course we will be available in Skype so any time someone want to ask something it will be easy to communicate with the rest of the team, and it is not a must to be online 24/7th, but it is more fun to be able to find a serious team.

Financial Details:
-We will distribute the "net" profit, meaning we will pay all the expenses from the income and then the profit will be distributed.
-Money will be distributed according to the workload and how active you are.
-I will give access to itunes connect for every one who will join to be able to see the income on daily basis, so there will be no cheating.
-Income will be distributed on monthly basis.

If you have any suggestion or would like to ask any thing please let me know.

    Do you have a link to your released games, portfolio or anything that can give us an idea of your skill-level?

    And why 2 GS devs? Isn't that a bit impractical when working on the same game (file)?


  • Sounds good buddy, good luck with the search :) one issue I would have would be the profit share rules as it would be hard to determine who puts in more effort, what's harder and the speed of which the work is completed.

    My game is soon will be released I am waiting for the animator to make the animation (introduction animation) I can create a small video capture for the game play and menus for whoever like, and the quality of the game and current graphics is rich and good I believe it will be one of the best looking games made in GS :P I just hope, well wish me luck ;)

    Next question, why 2 developers, it is good to have 2 doing the work, sometimes having all the job for 1 person is really tiring, But it will depend on the game we are going to make so, I might do all the development with GS ! or I can lead and someone else do the development, I actually enjoy making things, I personally like having a team to work with and create things, so 1 or 2 developers ( me included) is something will depend on other factors and will be determined in a later stage.

    Last question, to share the money, and how fair it will be, I am a graphic designer (2D,3D), I am a programmer with an advanced diploma in software engineering, so I know who is doing what exactly and how much effort he is putting into a task, if the members agrees, I can decide the share for each member, if not then we can find an alternative way to do it, I am very flexible and not greedy ;)

    You mentioned you where a graphic designer (2D,3D). Why not fill that position yourself? 2 Devs with GS is overkill. Graphics takes longer ( for me at least) that coding in GS.

    I think you are right, dhondon I can switch to graphic design, however I dont have good experience with pixel art, so I will need to practice alot before I achieve the results that I want, meanwhile I am practicing it, so If I couldnt find a good graphic designer I will have to do what you said..
