If you don't know me I'm Simon Mesnard (Simon Says: Watch! Play!), an indie developer from France who usually works on challenging Myst-like games with logical puzzles. Some of my previous games, made with VS, have become quite famous for the fans of the genre (ASA: A Space Adventure, Myha, Catyph). My series of scifi projects is continuously expanding. In 2017 there will be new games made in cooperation with other creators: Myha Remake with Unreal Engine, and another game developed in Unity. I'm opened to all cooperations.
You can learn more about the past projects in the Black Cube series here:http://www.theblackcube.fr
Recently I worked with The Icehouse (my collective of indie creators) and we hosted a Game Jam in the world of the Black Cube series. There has been 6 games created in 6 days for the occasion. Most of them are short and look like demos or prototypes - which is understandable in 6 days only!
You can find these games here: http://jams.gamejolt.io/blackcube2016/gamesDuring this Game Jam I created a prototype named ATOS
that you can see here, and download to play if you want:http://gamejolt.com/games/atos/217101
I have received some good feedback about this game (nice dark retro graphics, interesting ambiance, story rich project) and I would like to continue it, in order to plan a full commercial release on Steam.
Unfortunately I am working on another project already, and I am alone to do everything, so I'm very busy. It is more likely that I cannot continue ATOS in the current circumstances, and it would be a real shame to cancel it!
As a result I'm looking for a cooperator who could handle the programming/scripting part.
I will still create the world, graphics, videos and texts, but the Visionaire part is a lot of work, so I'd apreciate it if someone accepted to do it for me. You should be aware however that it is not a paid work
... I have no funds, I am far from rich, and I don't think that we could succeed a Kickstarter with this game (even if I'm opened to discussion on this point). If you are interested in this project, you will have to work on it for free. But of course in the end the money earned will be split fairly. Like all my games, I will release it on Steam. I am managing the account of The Icehouse on Steam, and we already have 5 games there, which makes me comfident that we will continue to grow and get more exposure. To make long things short:
- I want to cooperate in order to create project ATOS as a commercial indie game
- I can work on everything (graphics, ideas, etc.) except...
- ... except for the programming/engine part, where I am looking for a cooperator
- The project is not paid, but we will split the sales (%)
- A Steam release is possible
- It is not my first game and I have many contacts (music, localization, etc)
- I'm looking for a serious developer, motivated by scifi things, who knows VS well, with autonomy and availability
(enough free time to work on the project)
Of course I'm opened to questions, ideas and suggestions (Kickstarter, voices, game length, release date, more info about the Black Cube series, etc.)
