Hello. A friend of mine have decided to attempt to start a grass roots development of a mmorpg. We are both tired of the same tired and cookie cutter cloned mmorpgs out there that are all the same. It's a daunting task but even if we could get an alpha copy running on a pc with a few online players we would be happy with that and worry about any commercial paths after that.
So here's my problem. I am the Content Designer and Community Manager of said project with no programming skills. I need a volunteer to help us in his/her free time with basic projects we have no idea how to start on. Obviously we have no funding so it's more of a basement weekend project kind of thing at this stage. I'm willing to work a few years on the idea getting single pieces of the puzzle together over time.
Perhaps someone here can help supply even one piece of that puzzle.
If this post is in the wrong location I apologize but I figured game development might be a good place to start to make my plea. Thank you for your time.
It's a sci-fi mmorpg that concentrates on exploration, construction, crafting and socilization instead of combat. There is combat of course, but it is not the focus. No killing 10 space rats over and over again!
