If this is out of line, at all, pleas e just tell me and I will delete the thread.
A few friends and I started working on a game as a sort of slow side project, but if we ever want the game to happen, we need to enlist in some help.
We need help with coding, animating, and we need voice actors.
Currently we have people in charge of designs/art, including me(and I'm also in charge of story I suppose)
and we have people in charge of music(we may need another musician as one of them hasnt gotten back to me in a while)
I am ambitious to an unfortunate degree, so while this project isn't on a specific deadline, it is most likely a lot of work
I am hoping, after gathering together some people to help work on the game, to put up a kick starter so I can raise money to compensate the future wonderful people who join the 'team'.

The game itself is about a girl known to us only as Bii, who wakes up at a bus stop with not much recollection for who she is. The object of the game is to help bii remember who she is, and figure out how she got there in the first place.
The game will involve some puzzle solving, exploration, and combat. You collect certain items that give you abilities.
The game's full story and background will be shared with the people who work on the project.
here's a tumblr we've been using to track our progress/lack of progress:

Now that I think about it, We could probably use someone who can do backgrounds as well. I'm no good at them so I've currently been "collaging" some things together to at least get the idea of what I want out.
I'd also like any prospective coders/animators/artists/musicians/voice actors to know that they are also more than willing to suggest ideas and give me their input.

Anyway, If you are interested, my email is there, and I'd appreciate if you'd contact me.


What manner of game is it? Top down, sidescroller, I doubt it would be a shmup but that'd certainly be interesting. Who am I kidding, it's probably a top-down rpg.

Need to give more specs on the technical stuff it you want people to get on-board as well. For example, what sprite resolution are you working with? (32x32, 64x64, etc.) That part is important for spriters.

oh man
I knew I was forgetting to specify a few things.
I was thinking a side scrolling sort of format with some platforming, and for it to be more flash based(but more fully animated and not tweened, if thats possible.)
and the fighting will be in real time rather than turn based like an RPG.
There will be some areas where you have a number of enemies you need to fight before moving on or exploring.
This is another reason why I would appreciate some more help because there are certain things I'm not sure about how to do it or handle it.
I'm more so looking for people to add on to the team than just people to do the work my team needs done, if that makes sense??


How do you feel about 8-bit music?

I quite like it actually. I have a friend who does 8-BIT sounding stuff doing the boss battle theme music, as his music is generally fitting for fast paced and agressive things..
but I do need another musician who can pull off more calm and ambient/dreamy sounding things, and more catchy/pop like things.
so yeah long story short= 8-Bit is totally fine with me. As longas it adds to the environment of the level, I really don't care what kind of music it is, and I'm willing to consider just about every sort.


Yes, good. I'm looking forward to this.


i'm hoping to be able to deliver!
I hope people drop me a line soon (ive put my email in the email field here)
Here is the list of what I'm looking for but with some more specifics(because im brain dead of course and forgot that this kind of thing is important)
-Animators: We'd like more than one so no one person is stuck with the burden
-Coders,Scripters,etc: People good at coding and scripting in flash, maybe a team of them because like i said, i feel it'd be unfair to put the work on one person
-Voices: If you want to audition, pick any line(s) here: http://biizaar.tumblr.com/tagged/poetry , and record yourself reading it. I'd appreciate it if you did a couple of lines in different tones or voices, just so i can get a feel of how your range is. A note: Only one of the speaking characters is male. also the reason I want those who audition to read the poetry lines is because I really do not want to reveal any of the story to people who won't actually be working on the game yet.
-Music: Someone with the ability to produce both beautiful and dream like, scary and nightmarish. while we don't want ambient noise, we'd like music that has a good sense of atmosphere to it.
-background painters: I've made some collages of backgrounds/environments for the game, but I'd like it if we could get some talented artists to actually bring those environments to life.

For those who really are interested in being a part of the team(it feels weird saying that :T), send us examples of what you can do! You can send it via file attachments, or links to a gallery/youtube account, whatever.
Thanks to those who have shown interest so far.
(also it looks like my email wasn't typed in properly? how dumb of me im sorry :c hopefully its fixed now but its thespidersfrommars@rocketmail.com incase the email field messes with it or something)


I'm thinking about auditioning for voice acting but I'm shy about my voice…can I send it to you via 'ask'?


email would probably be easiest! again: thespidersfrommars@rocketmail.com

just send an email to me with a voice recording as an attatchment, whenever you're able!
