    Browser Based Multiplayer game.

    My friend wants a quote for this, I heard of this forum so see if anyone here is up for it.

    It would require coding for:
    Random positioning of players over a map when they start, and the ability for players to customise their character look.
    10-15 in game buildings that players can buy or build across the area they are placed in that generate money / produce troops / upgrades.
    Battle interface, allowing players to capture other users buildings through battles.
    The ability for users to buy a premium account, giving them a 15% productivity bonus.
    Friends list.

    Lowest possible price please, negotiations for cut of profit when game is finished are welcome.

    You haven't given us much to go with, such as what language, platform, do we need to make graphics, etc.

    Also when most seasoned developers see something like this...

    ...they often dismiss things because it looks like you have no budget or a very minimal one. That doesn't bode well for professionals, because they will take projects which at least guarantee a certain budget and so on.

    So my suggestion is give us more information, and tell us more about the financial situation. Honestly what you are asking for is not going to come cheap, and anyone who says they can do it for that is likely either not a professional or will sell you a copy of a program that is already written.

    Sorry about the delayed reply, been rather busy.

    OK more detail here it comes:

    Language: English

    Graphics: Basic images. Only moving images would be "upgrade" bar, showing the progress of troops being made or buildings being constructed.

    Concept: Each player is given a random location within the map, within each players area is a "safe zone" where only they can build and own buildings, although on their screen is also an "unsafe zone" where rival players can take over buildings constructed by the player, giving them a cut of whatever is manifactured there. There will also be an option for players to sell cuts of their buisnesses to other players for a certain amount of time.
    There will also be a "residential area" within each players safe and unsafe zone. Here players will be able to recruit more gang members, through upgrading the recruiting facilities. Only the player owning the area can recruit in the safe zone, although in the unsafe residential area, rival players can try to recruit for their own gangs.
    There will also be the added gameplay coding needed for police, the bigger your gang gets, the more police heat you will get, police can temporarily close down your buisnesses to make things hard for you. To avoid this, as the player gets to a higher level he/she will need to spend more resources on things such as lawyers and police bribes.

    As I said before there will need to be a premium member feature and an ingame message system with friends list.

    Anymore questions please PM me.
    Estimates please. =)
    Basically a gang warefare online game with a modern day setting.
