For about a year now, I've been working on a prototype for a 3D Platformer game. This is a project that I've put alot of thought, and effort into. The only problem? Nobody seems to want to help me bring it to life. Let me get the obvious out of the way. I am not a programmer. I'm someone who's more into the actual DESIGN aspect of game development. I've created several animations for this game. I've written out scripts and descriptions on how I feel the levels should play out. But of course, none of that really matters without coding. It's just a bunch of words, and animation files sitting on a computer. Back when this project first began, I was lucky enough to find a talented group of people, who were able to give it the jump start that it needed. Together, we were able to create a basic prototype with only a fraction of the basic gameplay mechanics implemented, which you can see here if you're curious. Almost all of those team members have become inactive, and ever since I've been unable to find dedicated people to fill their positions. ESPECIALLY on the programming front. This is how the cycle would play out. I'd post a forum post, asking for new members to come on board. Someone would reply within a few hours to a few days. I add them on Skype, get them all set up with the game's files, then after I tell them which feature I'd like them to implement first, they remove me from their contacts, and quit the project a few days later, usually without saying a word. This cycle has repeated with almost every single programmer I've come across, and I have no idea why. No matter what I do, or what I try, this always happens. I know it's hard to find people who will do this type of thing for free, but the fact that the exact same thing has happened with nearly all of these programmers in LITERALLY the exact same way is concerning to me. It makes me think that I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what. Basically, I'm completely stuck right now. Like I said, I've put alot of thought into this project. The story, the characters, the levels, all of it. I would absolutely LOVE to get into designing some levels for the game, and see this project truly come to life. But I can't actually DO that, until all of the necessary assets and mechanics that I need have been programmed, and it seems like no one out there wants to truly help me with that. At this point, I'm highly considering possibly moving the project to UE4, since that's more of a visual game creation tool, and relies less on needing to know programming. I'd have to redo alot of stuff from scratch, but at this point, it seems like the only person I can trust to get this project done is myself. But I dunno. Maybe I'm being to harsh. I'm just tired of this project sitting at a stand still with nothing happening. I want to see this project go somewhere. Will that ever actually happen? I guess that's for the future to decide. Anyways, I kinda just wanted to vent about that for a little bit. What do you guys think? Am I alone in thinking this? Or maybe I really AM doing something wrong? Who knows? I kinda just wanted to give my two cents on this pesky cycle that I can't seem to break out of. Maybe I'll try a simpiler game project that I've been thinking about doing recently. One that I could mainly do myself. Or maybe I could try joining another game project, and gain some experience that way. Regardless of what I decide to do, thanks for reading this big wall of text that is my thoughts. I hope you got atleast SOME enjoyment out of reading this. XD See you later everyone.
