Looking for RPG / Strategy / Choose Your Adventure Game Designers

If I had to put my finger on one specific type of game that I enjoy the most it would have to be the humble RPG. From the classic Ultima and Curse of the Azure Bonds style games through to Skyrim and Witcher 2 I enjoy them as much as time allows. For a while now I have harboured dreams of making a game in this style but several things have held me back.

First is all of the rules and stats needed to make the game fair but fun. When do characters level? How much XP should items provide? How easy is Monster X to kill? And secondly is the setting itself. Coming up with fun quests to embark on. Towns, cities, destinations they’ll want to explore. And characters you care about. These are all skills I’m well aware that I don’t posses. So I’m posting this in the hope that there are some budding game designers out there who perhaps have the opposite problem: stacks of ideas, but no skill/time to turn them into an actual game.

So I’m putting this post out in the hope that you may be such a person.

If you’ve got a burning game concept you’d like to see made, that falls somewhere into the realms of an RPG game, a card game, a turn-based game, a fantasy strategy game or even a choose-your-own-adventure style game, then I’d love to hear from you. I’m open to exploring all styles and genres, within reason, although I’ll be honest and confess I do have a particular love for the stock Tolkein, but that won’t prevent me from looking at others.

I’m not expecting you to just hand over your game design and be done. We will treat this as a proper business deal and agree terms that benefit us both. But if this sounds even slightly interesting to you, or maybe someone you know, then please get in touch. All I ask is that you actually have a game idea ready formed. We can take it from there together.

    Damn, I should have checked your website more often, Dave. One moth later it’s probably too late. :/

    I do have an idea, although, admittedly, it is not that epic. It’s more about toying with the concept of choices in low-budget RPG, since I intend(ed) to do it myself and in Flash / Flixel. I thought about only a handful of locations, but with hints of large world, and consequences that would span way further than little haven in which the action takes place.

    *sigh*

    hi
    are you still looking for the game ideas? I have few game concepts, but haven’t yet started on developing. Hope I can share the concept with you and see it working ! :)

Make yourself heard
