Well, I intend to be developing two different projects over the course of a certain time. One being a Comic Book and another being a Video Game. Both projects are a HUGE undertaking I might add, however, I am not afraid to do so. Cool thing about this is...both projects will coincide with each other in story. The genre I picked to develop both under is Sci-Fi Mecha. Now the actual storyline is going to be made from the brainstorming, mind-mapping, and storyboarding that will be happening here very soon. I already have come up with different ideas for what type of video game the video game project is going to be. They are as follows:
First Person Shooter/Sim
I will be narrowing it down to at least three choices that I will have whoever is helping make the video game to choose from. I already have some people in the works in helping do these projects. We will come up with a game plan to be able to achieve our goals on a certain basis. However, this is NOT mandatory work meaning this is all volunteer. I am not going to be pressuring people into working on these projects 24/7. No, that is one thing I will not do. We will be working this at a certain pace and only when we are able to.
My plan is this: we will have it start as a project that is totally volunteer. I can't do it as a paid project cause my finances are not as good as they should be. So that being said it is going to stay volunteer...temporarily. Now why is it only being temporarily volunteer? I will clarify the reason why. When we finish the brainstorming, mind-mapping and storyboarding phase of these projects and begin starting on the constructive phases (i.e. development phases), I will be starting up a patreon for the projects. What money that is being given by patrons, will be distributed evenly to people in the project as a gift from myself for helping on the project. I, however, will not be taking any of the incentive. Then, when the development phases are at a certain stage in either the comic book development, video game development or both, we will start a kickstarter to see how many people are interested in seeing this done.
I will remind everyone that this is not a video game made by a company like obsidian, valve, 2k, EA, etc. It may not contain voice acting in it. Unless of course I find a way to be able to get voice actors and a means to record the voice acting.
To conclude, I intend to see these projects through to the end. The Mecha genre of Video Games is as of late very stagnant. There is a new battletech game launching April 24th and a new MW game in the works, however, I do believe people want to see something different than seeing Battletech and Mechwarrior quite a bit.
I will keep everyone posted.
