So yeah I managed to get a team together... ...hence why I have been so inactive. So my psyche has finally started mending from the major burnout and I'm feeling pretty damn good. Highwind's progress is slow but steady, the outline for the story is probably about 70% - 80% done, and we've been toying around with some battle systems and skill systems.
As always I'm still accepting anyone who'd like to join the team and help with the project, the main skills we're looking for are...
-Composers - RPGMaker VX Ace's preset music is pretty good but it'd be cool if we could have our own soundtrack.
-Artists - As you can see by my posts I was able to make character graphics but I think it'd be a lot cooler if we had custom graphics, I also wanted to maybe try pulling a visual novel and during cutscenes show a kickass picture of what's happening.
-Pixel Artists - Using Game Character Hub I was able to make some character sprites and I got a shit ton of DLC for monster images but I'd rather have custom sprites and monsters, also we're toying with doing a sideview battle system so it'd be nice if we could animate the character movements even slightly.
-Mappers - My own mapping skills are okay but sub-par at best so I'd appreciate help from someone who specializes in it to speed up the process.
-Skill/Monster/Class Designers - We have a designer but he's been sick recently and while I've been able to help with designing my skills aren't amazing so I'd like a few more people to distribute the process between.
-Scripters/Coders - We have a scripter but as with the designers I'd like to distribute the responsibility as I can't even help with that shit, it's beyond me.
I'm not about to ask for free help and demand your undying focus and effort, I understand you might have some projects of your own you'd like to work on, and so we're pretty relaxed about pace. We're fairly organized material wise; we keep in touch via a Skype group and have a dropbox for sharing the files.
Anyhoo if you're interested in joining the project shoot me a message and I'll give you a brief synopsis of the story and if it sounds like something you'd be interested in helping to create we can get you started.
Stay dapper my friends.
