One man team on a 3D side scroller?

I think if talented people are gonna join up with you your gonna have to make something that impresses them. So you should decide early on what you want to catch people’s attention, could be the graphics, game play, story, characters or setting etc. You mentioned you have some skill in 3dsmax, a lot of people don’t so use that to your advantage, There’s too much generic stuff out there so should try and stand out a little.
