    Hey guys and girls,

    Have you ever found yourself trying to apply for a job to be a game developer or a game artist? Maybe a sound engineer or a script writer? Only to not even get an interview due to lack of ‘experience’, teamwork projects or released game titles you have worked on? I have for sure. The game industry is hard and competitive to get into for someone new, especially when you might have a full time job or even have to support a family. So I have come up with an idea and I wanted to throw something out there to see if people could be interested in such an idea.

    What if you could be part of a virtual game development company? A place where you can work on projects with a team of people from the internet, soon to be known as your colleagues, which could be from anywhere in the world all working at your own pace when you have time to do as little or as much as you want.

    The idea is we can create the power of a company and release titles together. Not only do you then have a released game title you have worked on under your resume, but also work experience, team work skills, and the power of helping each other and learning from each other.

    My dream idea is to create a solid place for people to join a party and develop ideas and create games and level up it experience points.

    As far as money is concerned, the games would either be released for free or any money would go towards charity, it’s not about making money, it’s about building a career or justness having fun building games and socialising with like minded people.

    I want to make something amazing, I think it would benefit me, and I think others who are serious would benefit greatly too.

    I await your critasism on the ‘prototype’ idea, I just wanted to see how many people would be interested in such a concept. And if you are very much into the idea, let’s make it happen.

    Thanks,

    Will.

    This sounds like a wonderful way of saying the same things that a lot of other indies are doing as well.

    If I ever see someone trying to make a game, I'll direct them to this thread.

    I would join if I weren't caught up in a project already. Maybe you would like to help with that lol

    P.S.
    Don't feel terrible, Will. =)
