Sebastian's tutorials (in german) are quite up to date. He created them with VS 5. There's also tutorials in english by Silvernode Studios, but he hasn't created as many tutorials as Sebastian or covered any in depth stuff such as scripting.
Now as Nige said, you need to create some kind of hook/pitch if you expect to get anyone on board. 99.9999999% of people won't bother either way as freeware/royalty based games rarely ever go anywhere & get abandoned. While you as the creator of the project may feel passionately about your game, you have to understand that people that join said projects consider them a hobby to do in the their spare time, & if your project has no direction/focus or ways to keep the people helping you out interested, then the project will just fizzle away.
Fan projects are a different matter entirely, but they are risky as the ip owners of whatever you are creating a fan game about can demand you stop/abandon the project or file legal action against you. So it's always a good idea to ask permission if you want to create a fan project game about your favourite comic, tv show, film, or youtuber/streamer, etc.
One thing I will recommend is writing a small GDD (game design document aka god damn document). It doesn't have to be in depth or full of 100's of pages, but it should at least include a basic summary of the storyline for your game, what features/mechanics you want to include, puzzle ideas, & various other things relevant to the game. Basically in other words, a list of goals for people to work towards. There's nothing worse than working on a game that has zero planning or thought put into it, because you get nowhere fast when you rely on winging it & just going with the flow of whatever ideas you or others come up with during the development process.
Anyway, good luck & feel free to join our discord server. Maybe you can find some people on there, but maybe not as most of them are already working on their own projects, but you can at least meet & chat with other vs game developers & find or ask for help/tips.
