I want to try my luck on making an open world, first person RPG. I am perfectly aware of the fact that this will be insanely hard to do and actually complete by myself, so I need a team. I also know that it will still seem almost impossible as a group project. But I still want to try.
Okay, so here is a brief description of the game's main mechanics. It will be set in the present day. But with a twist, a very big twist. What if maybe about 5000 years ago humanity discovered magic? What if we never discovered the many uses of electricity and technology, but instead had thousands of magical advances? It will be in a world like today. No wars, living life is easy. Basically imagine today, but instead of technology we have magic? But this doesn't only limit us to no magical creatures, no dragons, dwarves or catmen. Maybe some mad scientist infused a lizard with huge amounts of magical energy 500 years before, and created a dragon? Then they started multiplying like crazy. Of course the dragons are all tamed and in zoo's now. It's a time of peace and progress. Anybody can learn magic, but some are born with more capabilities than others. You are a normal college student, still quite the novice in magic. But then, then you find something...
I know there are a lot of gaps and I didn't think through everything, but it leaves gives us unlimited possibilities.
I'm looking for someone who I can discuss my ideas with, someone that can program the game(in c++ mostly), someone who can texture it, do the art, someone who can write in game books, etc. Basically make an application, include what you think I might need(your skills, experience, that kinda stuff), and thats it. If don't have a nexus account or have some other reason not to post, you can add me on skype(Endermod) and I'll ask you a few questions.
Keep in mind:
You will not get any pay now, but might get a hefty sum later if the game succeeds and gains revenue. But most of you here make skyrim mods as a hobby, for the community. Why not make this as a hobby, for the community? I know this will be very hard, if not impossible to make, but I want to try. I hope you do too.
Please help, join the team, and make this the best open world RPG ever. :tongue:
