( i, like many others, was bummed i couldn't contribute to Pico day so i really want to get something in for this holiday and show NGs some support! - and i was thinking, with a massive collaboration like this, it's even more fun to get more people involved!)
Once, for robot day, with the help of some INSANELY talented artists/Musician (1 haha), I was able to start up a pretty awesome movie collab >> RAGEOUS 7 << so I'm going to try another robot day collab..this one even bigger than the last
This is a very simple and BROAD concept i have come up with for robot day - sort of a fantasy steampunk/western robo platform style game ( a la megaman, contra - esk in gameplay style) This concept has a lot of developing still to happen so nothing is set in stone! (i just find to have an idea and jumping off point really moves things along to start) and I am hoping to assemble a MASSIVE team of people who are interested in making a really cool game for robot day. I know steampunk is done to death...but...i still think its cool and haven't come across many games with it. (i have a more expansive plot idea that i will share with the team when we start spit ballin' ideas)
[ I'll be serving as sort of the producer/facilitator for the group & will be filling one of these rolls]
So without further adieu - Here are the positions that will be available for this game (open to ANYONE! )
-Programmer [ probably the most important part- -no programmer, no game! ]
-Level Designer [ you will decide what will make this game challenging - **no artistic ability required** just a great sense of what makes these kinds of games fun and interesting. (here is a link of what the level designer will need to be providing SHITTIEST LEVEL DSN EVER..it's just an example...) so things like layouts, traps, enemy placements - - all things that will need to be handled by you!
-Character sprites[ this will be a lot of work but you will be making basically every functioning character/enemy/boss ect...and probably the actual platforms and solid objects as well] (i'll either doing this or the UI depending on the interest and who fits best where)
-Background Artist [ though the artist above will create the ground - the distant backgrounds are what can really add atmosphere and beauty to games **no animation skills needed** (although animated backgrounds could be awesome too!)
-Menu's and UI [ health bars, level clearing screens, pause screens, intro menus, ect ect..]
-Cutscene Animator/artist [ This will be a lot of work - once we settle into what the REAL story is, it'll be your job to create cool cutscenes to help the game feel even bigger and tell the story ] this could also just be more of a "motion comic" kinda thing if someon is more from the art portal world and wants to join!
-Voice Actor/s[ games with voices are always cooler - -granted these will be more of humanoid voices but.. never the less voices will be needed! ** you should probably have the means to make your voice - - robo-ish** ] all together though, who knows where the voices will go.
-SFX [ whether you are great at scouring the internet for awesome sounds or create them yourself, we will need plenty! ]
So there it is! - - I am very aware that it might only take a team of about three people to fill most of these rolls, but I'm more interested in this idea for the collaboration and how much i love working with other people - -So if you wanna join in the fun -we've got about two months, but i'm figuring that with the roles being a bit more spread around - it shouldn't be TOO much time off anyone's plate
so just throw a post in here if you are interested and what role/s you are interested in (or shoot me a pm) and I'll announce what the full team is gonna be this weekend!
Lets have some fun and make something awesome for Robot Day!
