Hey everyone I have a business idea I came up with and I need a partner for it. I have an idea for an online free to play, micropay for extra, text browser game, I've ran the idea past quite a few players in similar games and it has had very positive feedback so far. I have the idea protected a few ways legally, I just need someone who can be THE programmer for this game. I am offering a full equal partnership in the new company for this, no subcontracting or anything, it becomes yours just as much as mine.
I have the first 3-4 months of game content down on paper already and the first year mapped out, but this game will require regular (monthly) content updates so this is not just a one time, make this game for me deal, it will be an ongoing job that will eventually turn into some good money through microtransactions.
One main game I play now that will stay unnamed is somewhat similar, all text based and it generates around $400 a day with under 200 users online. The difference is that game is so generic it's not funny, my game has a lot of unique content/concepts that will help word spread. I have about ten percent of that player base ready to bail and come over to my game once it is finished (as well as players from other games), that's all you need to start is a good word of mouth pool. I expect within 12 months of launch the game to be producing a minimum of 100 dollars a day. The current game I play is just under a year old so I think that is a VERY conservative and feasible estimate/goal.
I have a very good business background and can make working on my end of the game (online advertising, game moderation, new content creation, etc) full time. This is a great opportunity for the right programmer to cash in and get in on the ground floor.
To be clear, I am not asking for any money for investing. The website is paid for the first year already and any funds will be taken care of, I just need a SOLID programmer who can work on this (and not lose interest in 3 months) and take co-ownership of the company (along with 50/50 split of future profits after investments repaid) as pay. Please pm me for more info. Thanks!
