    Hello everyone and welcome to my new major project for Android. i am planning to make a game for Android (.apk). This game is going to be going along the lines of games that have been previously made by NaughtyDog (The Last of Us, Uncharted etc). This game will include loot, stealth, shooting, adventure and good cutscenes.

    I hope that some of you guys can help out with this.

    Planned:
    3rd Person Gameplay
    Advanced Cutscenes
    Well Designed City Terrain
    Effective Weapons
    Well Designed Characters
    Fun and Adventuress Gameplay
    Advanced Crafting and Inventory
    Good Voice Acting

    These are just a few plans for now. More will be added in the future.

    NOTE: THIS GAME WILL BE MADE WITH UNITY 3D GAMING ENGINE. NO OTHER GAME ENGINES SHALL BE USED. PEOPLE THAT ARE SCRIPTERS MAKE SURE YOU USE EITHER JAVASCRIPT OR C#/C++

    Thanks

    Just one question. What do you plan to contribute to this project?
    We don't want something like this happening again.

    No don't worry I will designing the game as well. The only bit that I am not top notch on is coding but I will create the terrain, gui and some of the weapons

    ...I'm pretty sure you can't just "plan" good voice acting and cutscenes. You need to either find talented people who are willing to do it for free (and this will most likely not happen) or hire people. And most likely no one is going to accept an "X% of profits" payment.

    Yeah I know what you mean, well really all I need is some people to do the voice overs in the game. I have some friends that might be able to do the voice overs

    Ok, another question.
    Have you ever made a game/participated in the making of a game?

    Also, here's a general tip: START SMALL. You can't just make stuff like this. Start with those 1$ Android games that look like Flash games. Make a ton of those first, it will improve your ability to tell what's good design and what isn't. If you immediately start with a giant project like this, chances it will fail are roughly 99.99%. Even if you finish it, the final product is very likely to be plain bad. Also, "I will just ask some friends" and "good voice acting" are entirely different things (unless you're lucky and these friends happen to be great actors, which I doubt).

    Yes, last year I made a game called Squared as part of a school project. It was like a flash game and it did really well. Also I have been making a small game called ClearCutRacing

    The Ouya is a console running Android with its own independent game marketplace. Basically, the guy wants you to add button controls to the game.

    I know what you mean, I have been making some smaller games, but they are mainly for PC. I have been making some small Android apps such as a web browser and a word processor. Well im looking for ok voice acting.

    There will be button control as I will be able to export it to PC. So I can add controller support, but Ouya support will come out when the game is a bit more playable

    I suppose that those are small 2D games on the PC. What language did you make them on?
    Either way, 2 small games aren't enough experience to start a project like this. You need to keep pumping out small but interesting games, and most importantly, upload them on the Internet for free. People will give criticism towards your games and you can make them better. That way you'll get experience fast and once you're done with your, let's say, 10th game, you can start searching for a team to help you develop the massive game you want to make. And, unless you're willing to pay people for their work, you can't expect good voice actors, coders, designers, etc.

    Sorry to bring this up again, but what programming language are you using to make your games?
    Personally, I like the C++ and SFML combo, but that's not compatible with iOS and Android(yet).

    I will be using Unity, so that supports a game with javascripts and c++ scripts in game. Then Unity can compile the .apk or IOS game for me

    Even though earlier on in this post I said that this project has been put on hold, I will still be releasing smaller versions of the game like separate levels in each update until I have a better knowledge of game design and programming to make this game amazing.
