Team Request Building a team for the next best Indie Game

I'm looking for a team to partner with to develop one of the great indie games of our time.

The game is titled: I Am One

It's a mash-up Metroidvania-esque 2-D Platform Role Playing Game for the Personal Computer.

I have a basic story-line:

A young boy and his uncle live as hunter/mercenaries on the outskirts of a small town. After a request to retrieve a particular item he find himself on a journey that is going to demand more of him than he knew was available and bring him face to face with the consequences of every choice he makes.

I unsuccessfully launched a Kickstarter campaign a while back by myself, with little to show TBH.

https://www.kickstarter.com/project...r?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=matt dee

I was convinced that the idea of my game would be good enough to raise enough to fund the development of this project. I've since come to terms with a few things.

  1. It's a great idea, but doing it by myself is inefficient.
  2. I have a variety of skills, but I'm a jack of all, master of none type of guy
  3. There is a community of people that might also want to be a part of something great.
WHAT I NEED?

I need a few good men(or women) who want to make the type of game that will have people in their feeling when the journey ends. A team of tenacious, committed, creative minds ready to take up their weapon of choice and conquer this thing.

You can be good at one or more of these.

Thanks Guys and Gals, See you on the other side of Design!

I'm certainly doing it for the money, but more for the lifestyle regardless of the struggle. If I'm going to get paid for anything it might as well be something I love to do. But it's true that I'm pacing. Do you have guidance that you can offer?

u shuld just share ur work as u make it. dont hurry to finish it. u dont need to make money out of it i rly dont see a reason to try be a full time indie if u alredy have an income and are able to spend time on dev. this is for the money, otherwise youll learn everything u need with time. you have skills and creativity.
indi is pretty much sharing ur work with people. so do that

Yeah I don't plan on making money too soon, but I would like to go full time indie. I have several other game ideas that I want to develop eventually, but it's going to require more time and skills than I currently have. Currently I'm building a team to work with now and hopefully in the future on future projects. For me it's good experience. Plus, If it goes well, I wouldn't have a problem sharing any accrued benefits.

Love the design of this game so far, but it seems... enormous. I'm looking for a new project but I kind of wanted to start small. Is this as big as I'm imagining?

Hello,

My name is Owen Skelly. I am an avid programmer in GML and I have been working with it for over 3 years. I am interested in working on this with you and have gone through your kickstarter. I see potential here but not without skilled labor. I will work free of charge until the kickstarted goal is reached or at least 5,000 is raised. Then I will charge at an hourly of minimum wage. I am only a hobbyist but can do some pretty amazing things when I get into it. Email me at owen626skelly@gmail.com or reply to this thread if your interested.

Hey Owen,

I'm still piecing things together and trying to organize the idea, but I'll let you know when I have it to where I want.

Hey astartzman,

I looked at your page and like your designs. If you'll give me some time to finish organizing the rest of my ideas I would like to contact you later on to see if you might be willing to contribute where needed.
