    Seeking programmers to work with on an online business game

    I am currently in the planning stages of developing a free, online business/economics game along with a couple of other people (designer/programmer and a project manger).

    I am an average PHP programmer myself and will be the lead programmer on the project. We are looking for any other programmers proficient in PHP and MYSQL who may be interested in helping out with this project.

    I'm sorry, but its a free game we are making for fun and as such we cannot pay anyone itnerested in helping out. We won't make money ourselves either, although we'll be paying the hosting etc.

    I certainly wish you the best

    I personally don't understand how people can afford to work for free, but to them, I wish the best!

    This is in the project collaboration forum, not a paid project forum. Its a hobby.

    I must just be really jaded. I get the concept... I just haven't ever really seen it work. Even projects that I've done for friends for free that I was enthusiastic about... seems it never ends very well.

    At any rate, best of luck to you.

    Hey I'm interested. I can code PHP and MySQL, and was working on my own text based MMO for awhile. I don't think it'll be hard to monetize the game if we plan it properly, if anything just by adding in premium items or perks.

    Shoot me a PM!

    There are no plans to monetize it, I must emphasize that this is intended to be a free game.

    The more people we have aboard and the more experience will help to produce a better final product. I've sent you a pm.

    Thanks to the excellent responses received, a team is in the process of being finalized and applications are now closed. I look forward to presenting our project upon release.

    Why? What was funny? I have seen a few games that are made by guys as a hobby and have been released.
