Hello there,
I've finally managed to get my game to run on the 360!



I've done a good progress on writing the engine and the map editor.
Now I don't want to make any more progress until I find a graphic designer to help me with the sprites.
Working on the graphics is a lot of work, and since I can't draw I've been using existing sprites & tiles from Zelda Minish Cap.
For obvious copyright issues I won't be able to publish the game with these graphics so I'll need replacement ones!

If you think you can help (this is a serious project btw, it involves money

) please let me know!

I might be able to help. Tell me what you need to get drawn and I'll see what I can do. Give me one or two at first, so you can see if you like them or not.

I need graphics designers most. Ace accepted to help with the writing already so I think we'll be good.
We need talented and serious people as this will be a paid job (you get a share of the profit)

If you think you can help, please show a mock up of a 32*32 sprite that we could use in replacement for Link (the main character, from Zelda games)

Well thanks

! Na, I get it.

I'll try doing link for you. Now, am I remaking link (from nothing, so I don't break copyright) or am I making something totally new?

Also I should point out that I will not be the one drawing it, I'm getting one of my friends to do it. I'm just scanning it in and coloring it!

Alright gentlemen!
Here's an update on things!
A couple of people have accepted to work on the project already.

Graphics
Tommy_T: sprites & character design
WildWon: backgrounds/maps/tiles design

Story & Writing
Ace Gunman: story, writing, dialogs, everything


We still do need a couple more people though.
We need a graphic designer that will take care of the art work. That is, someone who will design things like the splash screen, menus, large drawings of the characters, character avatars, etc. (as opposed to pixel art).
We'd also need someone to take care of the audio: background musics and sound effects. If I can't find someone to help with this I'll probably do it myself.

playallday: send me anything you want and I'll tell you if it suits our standards

thanks

I (or I guess my friend
tongue.gif
) is a better at that kind of stuff. I'll send you one of his works sometime this week (or sooner).

EDIT: This isn't the type you want but its the only thing I had on hand. This was done free hand. Just something he had in the sketch book, not trying to sell it

. Let me know what you think by PM.

well...you want to distribute this in a commercial way? isn't the zelda series protected by some copyright? you could get into trouble if you use those characters and look-a-like sprites

zomg i be the testerzzzz but instead of actual work ill just play the game once and not give any real feedback



Actually if you do want a tester I'm good at finding glitches usually. This thing looks interesting.

(as long as I don't need any unobtainable hardware and I can play the game directly from the XNA emulator or whatever it has)
