My name is Jack, I am putting together a small team to develop a unique Zombie Survival game for PC. The project it’s self is a fair size, but I plan to release portions of it as we progress. Starting with Alpha stage, beta stage and so on depending on our success. My role in the team is to recruit, achieve business opportunities, clear up any doubts or ideas that team members may have, ensure that the game is being developed the way it was planned to be, give or take new ideas and inspirations and generally supervise the project.
This projects first goal is to reach a demo stage, including 1 town, a playable character, usable Ui (doesn’t have to be finished), and other assets that the playable character can interact with, eg. Enemies and loot.
Once the project has reached Demo stage, we will launch a Kickstarter Campaign, to help fund further progress, possibly including a reasonable salary for all collaborators.
The next step of this Project will be to reach Alpha stage, and release it for testing on Steam Early Access or to our Kickstarter backers first.
In our project, we’re focusing on making the zombies the main threat rather than the players, we want our players decisions to affect their game play and bring consequences and opportunities. It will be an online game with both PVP and PVE servers. It will also include many new customization features rarely seen in this genre as we progress more, as well as new building mechanics, jobs, controls etc.
It is set in an eroded and abandoned world. Wild life has taken over as there aren’t enough humans around to leave a mark. The humans that are left, are determined to restore what once was, and make their own mark in their new world. Rebuilding, making new laws, restoring power and water, recreating civilization.

Payment is not an option at the moment, but all collaborators will either earn a share of the profit once the game is sold, salary once Kickstarter goal is achieved, or if you are not interested in payment, all collaborators are of course free to use their work in their portfolio.
As this is a collaboration I understand that at times it may be difficult to dedicate hours, but I would appreciate it if all members did treat this like a job or part time job, show dedication, seriousness and professionalism.
You must be positive and open minded.
Instead of seeing problems, you must see solutions or opportunities.
Negative attitude will not be tolerated, neither will misunderstanding discussions as arguments or converting discussions into arguments.
Upon Joining the team:
You will be given a Game Design Document of this project before agreeing to join. It is highly recommended to read it so that you understand what our project will eventually contain. Once agreed to join you will be offered a contract made by myself which will be a place holder until one is made by a Lawyer. Please understand that contracts made by lawyers are expensive, and as we are collaborating there isn’t much need for them as you are all entitled to keep your work.
Looking forward to working with you!
