I’ve been in development of a city builder for almost 2 years now, one that has been a huge passion for me and my business partner. A while ago we launched it on steam, reaching a “very positive” rating, but selling only a few thousand copies. We struggled for a year doing consulting and trying to finish the game, but in the end the stress killed us and we burnt out.
I’m now reaching out to see if anyone would be interested in taking over our baby. We dont want money for it, we just want to see it graduate early access.
The game has a full foundation and most critisism today is about lack of content and lack of development lately (because we burnt out)
The game has never had any problems getting the attention of youtubers, as long as we reached out to the right youtubers they covered the game happily, since there is not that much competition for city builders. So what you as a developer has to do is revive the marketing for the game, as well as develop more engaging content.
The game however is complex, it’s a procedurally generated world with advanced AI and custom pathfinding, so you need to have an experienced coder on your team. We will not accept anyone, we want you to be competent enough to finish the project.
We believe that with the right team you could kick this game alive and earn some serious money with it. Another potential idea could be to finish the game, then rebrand it and look for funding.
Reach me at email@example.com with information about you and potentially your team, and we can take it from there.
All the best,
