Innocent Bystander

This is not a typical job ad. It is a detailed explanation of the position, project, team, and why this game will succeed. It  is very long, and kind of ‘ranty.’ It is written this way due to our lack of experience and because you're only receiving  profit share rather than a salary. Such circumstances require more persuasion and details. But this is a very serious endeavor that will be a big part of your life, so you should want to know as many details as possible before joining. I  would, at least.

If you don’t want to read the whole thing right now, at least read the 4 main selling points.

Why You Should Join Our Team:

1.   I am completely convinced that you will not find an indie team with a better marketing campaign than ours, simply  because I have the proper mindset and I’ve done more research.

2.   Guaranteed profit share. Goal & estimation of over $100,000 gross revenue within the first year of release. This is  not just a whimsical guess. It is based on 8 months of extensive, objective market research.

3.   Guaranteed finished game to put on your resume. I am absolutely determined to not only finish this game, but ensure  that it is a success. I am going to do everything in my power to make this my career.

4.   This is an excellent team to join. Not only will you be paired up with a top-notch marketer, you also get assistance  & guidance from an experienced programmer, and a young, dedicated programmer to help with tedious, grunt work. Best of all,  you will join a talented, devoted artist, and a brilliant designer who will ensure that this game is perfectly designed.

If it's such a dead cert I'd advise you to find some financial backers who believe in it and then hire some programmers with the money and a profit share. Otherwise this belongs in the Volunteer Projects section.
