+Starwander Posted August 15, 2022 Share Posted August 15, 2022 There has been some confusion about this post with the perception we are looking for free services or not to pay people. This is not true the project has 100% of its funding secured and we are able and willing to pay for people's work. We do not need to sell the product to recoup the investment and do not need additional capital ever. We are doing this as a test of concept and for the enjoyment of it. We can spend the resources needed to develop an interesting game with some really cool tech that hasn't been done before. Its a serious opportunity. While the founder hasn't really been into the game market before he has started several very large and successful companies. His largest being https://iohk.io/en/. I agree its very early in the process; however it is why we are attempting to bring in someone with extensive experience to help flesh out the design and help bring in the right additional talent. We are starting a game company that will develop RPGs for retro gaming consoles. We have some ideas about a game that would be very interesting for us to play however this is our first foray into making an actual game. We are interested in starting discussions with individuals with extensive experience in the homebrew field that can help design and implement a homebrew project. We are definitely interested in trying to push the boundaries of what the Super Nintendo can do as far as possible even to the point of designing custom hardware if necessary to expand their abilities. We are interested in building a historically accurate RPG set in medieval Europe around the 14th century that incorporates elements of magic and fantasy. We want to have multiple different endings for the game and to have choices the characters can make that actually make meaningful differences. We are definitely realistic that the market for brand-new video games for such an older console isn't exactly robust but we fully intend to self-finance the project and bring it to fruition. We are willing to hire people to help bring this project to light. Preferably if you have had extensive experience from previous projects we could hire you as a project lead and then build the team around you with writers, artists, programmers, etc. If you have extensive experience please reach out to me and I would love to talk with you. This is certainly a paid position and we could talk about different variations of what that could look like. Hopefully, we could design and build the game in about a year to a year and a 1/2 but will have to take it day by day. Our goal would be to use this as a launch title to build additional titles. Also if you have an interesting game design that you'd be interested in making that isn't a role-playing game we might be interested in financing the development of that project.
