    ...so you've bought a domain and stolen a bunch of ideas from every other mafia/gang game on the net and now you want someone to code 'your' game for you for free.

    When you say you 'nd 1 other m8' are making this game - what exactly are you doing? You're not coding it and you're really not writing or designing it...

    Do you have a USP? What is going to make your game stand out from the hundreds of other games like it?

    Unique selling point I think it is. Basically, what makes your idea better than all the other 1000's of text based games that's already out there?

    text based = not gonna work without $100+ each week, database, after database. Your better to learn flash and make an arcade game that multiplayer and has a highscore board. Then you'll make money with a storyline like that.

    Only need 1 mysql table, 1-5 pages, 1 flash app and a server to run information through.

    Nightfire and Nancy have posed good questions.

    GSimpson, I strongly disagree with what you said there. I run a browser based text mmorpg with hundreds of players. 1 database, 32 tables.

    Your flash idea is good however is entirely different. It is a massively different market auidence to a browser based text mmorpg and not all that relavent here.

    I have not yet found a flash MG that can keep my interest for 1 hour, let alone 5 years, like a popular text based game has

    Cheers,
    Sir P

    may be just me and the way I program....oh well. Yeah I find it hard to stay interested in text based. They never seem to work like the should, I find I have to have some control over the player visually.

    I started a game like I suggested, but you know, time.

    It's going to be hard to get someone to do it for you, for the sake of having mod rights and some credits. You're going to have to offer alot more if you're wanting someone to put in all those hours to create a game from scratch for you. It'll take weeks, if not months to make and that's a heck of a lot of money ($40+ an hour) the coder will be losing on it
