What’s next?

Now that the Special Edition of Frasse is done, I’m (finally!) getting ready to start on my next game. Two years ago I announced that my next game would be a sequel. I did some more design of that game after that announcement, but its design is still very loose. (I got sidetracked by the work on the SLUDGE engine, and then I started on the Special Edition.) Now might be a good time to start working on it properly. If I do that, my next game will be the sequel.

But my thoughts keep drifting back to the topic of a collaboration… I would like to do a collaboration project, and as I’m currently between projects I’ll throw the question out there: Do you want to design a game for me to make? I haven’t done a successful collaboration yet, but I have proved that I can do the work needed to finish a game, and I’m making sure not to bite of more than I can chew this time. I also have an idea for the division of labour the would make the project manageable.

I’m looking for someone who wants to do the story and game design. Then I’ll take care of the implementation of it.

The game should be an adventure game (and not in 3d). That way I’m confident there won’t be any technical obstacles. I have a game engine that I know well.

Serious? Weird? Whimsical? Traditional? A bit experimental? I’m open to most suggestions. You don’t have to have any game making experience. If you don’t have anything to show what you can do, you’ll have to have a better sales pitch, but please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re interested!

Send me an e-mail if you’re interested! Questions can also be put as comments to this post.

  1. I thought I wrote what I want: I want someone to design a game for me that I can make.

    I have received two suggestions, both of them interesting, but nothing is yet decided. If anyone else is interested in collaborating with me, let me know soon!

  2. Good for you doing this Trumgottist – were you particularly aiming at people who might have made games but didn’t have the programming / drawing skills?

    Collaboration is difficult but well worth trying. I don’t have the bandwidth at the moment to dare to say I’m interested, and also you’re after a pretty well thought through design? I might have ideas for games that I wouldn’t have the abilities to do myself, but they wouldn’t be fleshed out, would need a dialogue to progress.

    Hope something great comes from your generous offer!

  3. I wasn’t aiming anywhere in particular, other than trying to find someone who find it easier to come up with a good story (and game design) than I do. I’ve heard people state that the story and design is the easy part of game making, but that was very far from being true for me when I made Frasse.
