Okay me and a few others have decided to go ahead and start a nice website to make some money that will better secure us financially during our game development of Out Reach. Crowd funding is great but not something I want to fully rely on.
So here is our Idea and what we need.
A site that acts as a portal for learning, buying, selling, and so on.
We can make assets that can be sold or given for free as a prototype asset. these assets will range from game sounds and music to fully scripted mini game examples for several game engines. We will host several tutorial videos for learning from coding, 2D art, to 3D animation.
Things to offer on this website:
Music and Sound
All the above listed can be bought out at a higher cost for custom usage. All assets will be granted commercial licensing for use in Indies, Professional studios, and personal projects. Some assets may be free to use as prototyping.
We want to be a central hub for all things web and games. Be it 8 bit games to next gen games. Assets for Game Maker clear to Unreal Engine 4. We want to cover a vast area of the game development market at reasonable prices. We will even take on custom assets for those who needs something unique to their project.
Members you pay a small $5 one time fee can become sellers as well, selling up to 30 items at a time. While those you pay a one time membership fee of $15 can sell unlimited items. We will take a 7% cut to cover site costs and keep the site running.
We will have this broke up into Bronze and Silver Memberships. While Gold can be obtained free buy selling a certain amount of assets lifetime with a 4+ star rating. Gold allows you to sell all your assets with no royalties. Plus you get a few of your assets featured every once in awhile. Gold can be obtained by Bronze users as well just may take a bit longer.
A community forum will also be set up for general discussion of new assets, requested assets, and asset support.
This site will be built for game designer, developers, but will also cover web designers and developers also. Even general artist and composers can benefit from this site.
This site will take some work and because of that I reach out to the community for those skillful enough to assist with the creation of this site and those who assist will be given Gold Membership right away and or become apart of the development team running the show.
Who we need right now:
Asset creators, those willing to fill the store will assets. (You will get to sell these assets, or give them away free, you decide. You also get Gold Membership. Some may become employed in the future if the site takes off.)
Web Designers and Developers. (You will be the core team for making this site function and operate properly. You get to be employees to the site.)
PR for running the community base, support, and social media exposure. (Earn monthly commissions on performance, bigger the consumer base and reputation, the bigger the pay)
Currently we have a few people all geared up to go with this and after researching this could be quite large if we do it right and offer great communication from consumer to seller.
So if you wish to be apart of this project and help us get a prototype of this site going please respond by sending me a resume or proper portfolio of experience.
Were currently only wanting a core unit of roughly 20 people at the moment with free time to spend on this.
We hope this can benefit many areas of design and development, even outside of the gaming world.
