Looking to build team for Educational Game
I recently interviewed for an educational art director position for a fairly large educational company and while I did not end up landing the job the process of creating concepts specifically for that interview made me realize just how much I want to be creating these types of games.
I have spent the last month or so working on my concepts, illustrations, interface designs and researching common core math standards. In addition I have registered for Udemy classes and I have been watching multiple training videos on YouTube and Lynda.com. Trying to learn all aspects of game development is a bit overwhelming however I am not going to stop until this game is complete.
Right now I am looking to see if anyone is interested in helping as a member of a team that will give us all something we can put on our resume for future work etc. If you partner with me you will be partnering with a motivated self starter with a 20 year background in interface design and character illustration. In the past I have been hired by start-ups that are looking to create something from nothing and I have been told that I am good at creating initial concepts.
I am looking for anything from advice on how to go about making this myself to a programmer that is willing to partner with me. I will do art, storyboards, animation, sound design, heck...I will even roll my sleeves up and code along side you if this is what is needed.
I will pay if that is what is needed as I have some money set aside to try and make this work, but I am by no means rich so if you are looking for steady income from this project out of the gate this is probably not for you. I am willing to share more information if needed, including sketches, concept foundation, etc.
