    Firstly, please un-format your text colour.
    Its a pain to try and see in the dark theme of this site, which a large number of us use.

    Let me get this straight - you have a script that you want to turn into a game with no previous game design experience or programming skills, you want to assemble a team of coders and artists to make that a reality, you offer 2,5% of profits to each individual on the team as incentive and you expect those complete strangers to work effectively together on long distances?

    ...I have a bad feeling about this.

    You need a lot more material before you can go about hunting for additional team members. You basically have a wish and an e-mail address. AKA a crapshoot.

    Now that I can see it, I like your passion and guts to pitch this.
    But I think its very very ambitious atm. Its not easy task, not some after school project.

    At least he picked a generally untapped and un saturated genera. In fact I can't even think of any scifi shooters released in the past 10 years.

    Something this big coming from an idea of a 15-year-old? I'd be amazed if this actually works out.
    I, a 14-year old, who has been learning C++ for 3 years now, am developing a game, as well. It's a project built by two devs, so we aren't aiming for something this large (after all it's ascii-based for now :lol: )
    I wish you luck on the project, but starting the development of a game requires more than just a script.

    It was build in one day, I'll try to look if I still got the files :yay:

    We called it Nuclear africa and won a small price with it XD

    Ok you want something constructive?

    Lets start at the beginning. You are the script writer. What programming languages do you know? Java, C, C++, Python, Ruby?
    Whats your scope for your project? When will this be available?
    How are you planning to get the rights to get this available on current/nextgen consoles?
    How are you going to get everyone to cooperate and work on your time schedule?

    I wouldnt put that you have a detailed story. Thats false advertising.

    HEAR THIS. IF you get someone to set you up a kickstarter, I WILL BACK you. And I will watch you the entire way as you prove my all of our doubts wrong.

    There's a general consensus when it comes to project starting that you recruit people once you have something to show - at least a tech demo of what your project is going to be like that you want to improve upon. Just a script isn't enough, anyone can write a story.

    In all seriousness though, you're asking a hell of a lot from people who would be getting piss all in return.
    You may have written the story, and I'm sure it's...adequate, but you're asking people to do all the heavy lifting for you, and there's absolutely no guarantee that you will get anywhere near close to finishing this project, and that if you do there's also a very slim chance that it will be anything remarkable. You've decided on a game in the most cluttered genre, with the titans of the games industry at the very top of the heap and everyone else just farting around in the cesspool that it's become.

    By all means continue to aspire towards making this game, but not until you've got the story properly polished, and some actual resources. Asking on a forum for people to help is obviously a good way go start off, but not when you're keeping the majority of any profits for doing the easiest part.
    Anyways, that's my shit said, enjoy
