EDIT: Just to be clear, I am currently looking for volunteers, however if everything goes well with this game launch I would love to start sending some paychecks Smiley

Hey guys, I'm kinda new around here but I can't think of a better place to start looking for perspective colleagues to develop a new RTS Game to be the flagship game of an Indie Game Studio Start-up called Warmonger Studios. A little about myself: My name is Aaron Blankenship, I'm a 20 year old mostly self-taught jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none kinda person. I have experience in java programming, web development, video editing, and plenty of entrepreneurial ideas to play with.

I am in the market for a person or persons to fill in the gaps where my skills are a bit lacking to help me bring this game to the masses sometime this year, hopefully much sooner. I need people who have a general interest in creating this game, as well as getting the game studio off the ground. Selected persons should understand that being a start-up, cash is short so the quality of this game will mostly be determined by how motivated we are to create and launch something amazing. However, once we get this thing launched, we will work out some contracts so everyone earns their cut.

Some skills that I know I need off the bat are Java servers/game networking and Graphic Designers(Game Textures/Web Front-ends), so if you can do any or both of those that's a huge plus. You don't have to be a pro either, I am still learning game design myself and I think half the fun will be learning together.

Some other bonus points would be if you are a similar age and/or located in Ohio. These aren't a necessity but could help. Also, skype is good too.

I'm really easy to work with and open to any and all ideas, however I will make a lot of the final decisions in the game mechanics since I already have the basis of the idea in my head. As of now there are no deadlines to hit, however I do like to work as quickly as possible. If you can do something at least every few days that's fine.

So yea, if you're still reading you probably have at least one of the skills I mentioned above so post below or PM me and introduce yourself, point out some of your skills, link to some past work, whatever you want and I will get back with you as soon as possible. Thanks for your time! Smiley

EDIT: Also, we will be using libGDX, so skills there are another plus Smiley

Lol well I guess it couldn't hurt if you told me more about yourself Tongue Not completely opposed to younger people, I always hated the age restrictions when they applied to me as well. Lets just think of the game for now and worry about the legal junk later Tongue

Seriously, did you read my resume then write this post just to hook me ...

Edit: And I just noticed that your other post regarding rendering already piqued my interest. Fate whispers?

No, my resume is nowhere public at this time. (Also thanks for the linode recommendation - that was my thread. Sounds like we're on the same wavelength.)

Ra4king and I have started making some headway into the project. We are using libGDX as our graphics library, however the two of us are more logic geared than rendering. If anyone happens to be really good at that, we could really use your help Smiley

What kind of art are you looking for? I have a pixel artist I'm working on a game with, but development on that game has slowed, so he'd have plenty of time to work with you if you like that style (retro-looking.)
