    Okay, it may have an odd name. But if you have a better name for this game, just react on this topic, and maybe the name will change.

    In the beginning you can choose; do you want to be a warrior, mage, archer, etc.. You can edit your character and give it (of course) a name.
    Later in the game, you have to accomplish quests to gain QuestXp. and gain QuestLevels. The higher the Quest Level is, the harder the quests become.
    Quests don't have anything to do with the story, but the QuestLevels do. You must have a specific Quest Level to play specific Missions. Missions are important for the storyline. Missions let you make progress in the game. Like defeating enemy Generals, or vanquishing enemy camps.
    Your team exists of 3 or 4 people (see the character descriptions above). The fight idea is that you walk through a landscape, and when you touch an enemy, you come in a turn-based fight (just like in the DQ series).
    The dialogues are as in most of the Square Enix games. And not as in Soma Bringer.

    Maybe you should add members whose only job is to perfect the plotline. There doesn't seem to be any working on the story in the crew you've imagined.

    So if I have this correctly, you don't bring any skills to the project yourself?

    No, that is not true.
    My role in this video game is to plan this game, add a crew, arrange (Beta) testers, etc..
    I am the one that oversees everything.
    But if you suggest I have to do more, I will look what I can do.

    Well, by "skills", Urza may have meant that you don't bring any of your skills into the creation of the game. As in, you aren't coding the game yourself, drawing the characters, or well, create anything at all in the game. You're only the supervisor.

    Those aren't skills, those are jobs (and the ones you listed don't necessarily require any skills).

    Fact of the matter is, if you don't bring anything to the table yourself, you're going to have a hard time finding others willing to expend their time and effort. Your game "concept" is basically one sentence of plot and a description of an RPG. Might as well save yourself the trouble.

    Yes, I know what he means... (maybe my reaction was a bit stupid) But yes, I am the supervisor, and I am at the moment looking for a staff.

    Because I am not the Lead Artist of the game, or not the Map Designer, not the whatever, doesn't mean I am just going to watch. I will also create the characters, help with the maps, etc..

    Then if you have more substantial ideas for the game, you should post them.

    Oh, and just wondering, will this game have more of an European feel or a Japanese feel?
    As for the game's name, Maybe we could change it entirely. Like, changing the name of the region too. Because, honestly, Zenzai sounds weird. Although it's your choice whether or not to keep it. If you'd like to stick with it, then maybe shorten the title to "Zenzai" only.

    About the name: I would like to change it entirely, I made it up when I was 9 years old, and I don't mind an other name.

    About the feeling: I really like Square Enix, with Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and that kind of stuff. So the feeling has to be Japanese, please :').

    Your gonna need more than that to pull in developers. Some concept art and a story line that isn't exactly the same as the definition of an RPG would help. If you revise the first post then you might be able to count me in.

    Personally, I'd like to help too. But, the problem here is the basic idea you have of the game is too vague for us to build up anything from it, like ThePowerOutage said.
    Well, like he said, you'd need a more complete concept story and some drawings. Like, images you have in mind of the characters or the landscape.

    Oooohw, now I understand what you guys mean, I am sorry I was so slow.
    But I don't think the pictures will be posted today, because my father installed a program called 'ClickTime', that allows me to 'internet' only 2 hours everyday. I expect reactions like "What!? If you have only 2 hours/day, you'll never have enough time to create a full game, unless you have 26 years!". My reaction "Yes, but in a few weeks I will have my own computer, and I can create as many drawings as I want!"

    But I will post the pictures a.s.a.p..

    For the story, look for something innovative, but not necessarily eccentric. Just look for something fresh.

    Those programs make me laugh.
    They make schools security look invincible
    EDIT: OT: downloading GIMP now, just did a fresh install so I have no programs. I'll see what I can drum up.
    EDIT2: Downloading some other software, might take a while on this crappy wifi.
