I am aware people have been trying for a long time to market a BGE game and many have failed. So please don’t write this post off before you read it.
I have been doing market research over the past nine months and have found a market niche for a BGE-based game centered around a modified version of Ashsid’s Artoolkit plug-in. I’ve upgraded the functionality and tracker support, and have a game demo made.
I won’t go into details on this public forum, for fear of other companies finding the info, but the market indeed is there, and I have experience selling into it with well-placed connections that will make ours a success.
The scale of the project is well within the grasp of BGE, meaning it isn’t a huge MMO or FPS game as they usually fail due to the huge amount of work required. Instead, our game will be something easily accomplished, yet to the consumer marketplace will seem a stroke of marvel never before seen.
I am posting today because I’m looking for people to join the team:
Mainly need designers who are good at high-quality BGE modeling, to make 25 unique creatures, using the latest 2.48 release game features such as soft-body, dynamic lighting, bump mapping, OpenGL, etc., anything to make the creatures look as real/high quality as possible. I can provide concept art, or you can use your own ideas for some of the creatures too.
Also need artists / mappers to make textures for the 25 creatures mentioned above.
Also need someone good at python programming for BGE.
The project will use these 25 creatures and python programming and sell to the consumer market, expected sales are forecasted at 10,000 – 50,000 the first year, and up to 200,000 the second.
It will be a fun project to work on, and a good team, but what’s more, it’s a project that can make a lot of money. Expected project time is just around 8 weeks, so it’s not a hugely long commitment for anyone.
Each of us on the team will own a share % of the company, when the sales come in it’s as simple as just splitting the revenue according to our % shares.
As I said, I can’t say too many details on this public forum, but please PM me if you are interested or need more information before your consideration.
One more thing, I, as all of you, love BGE and having fun writing little games in it, but wouldn’t we all rather be making money doing it? Just a thought… But that’s where this project aims to go.
Cheers to the BGE community-
