      Please Use CODE Tags   31 Jan 2016

      Welcome to the Programming and Software Design Section,

      When asking for help with programming issues, please use the code tags to enclose your code, it makes things much more easily readable for the people trying to help you, thus improving your chances of actually getting help.
        To add code tags, click the <> button on the editor toolbar, then enter your code in the code editor that appears. If you are on a mobile device, or prefer to use BBCode, you can use [code] // Your code here // It will be syntax highlighted, though not necessarily corectly. [/code] (but the code editor is more consistent and less buggy).

anyone wanting to help build a game?

You should start much, much smaller then. Knowing how to make music is not enough to make you a useful long term member of a team. Learn how to edit maps and program at a basic level. Fool around on your own with Unity, Unreal Engine, Source or something else. Maybe try making a text based game from scratch. Games are some of the most complex pieces of software you can make.

It's also ideal to work on small games that you can make yourself. I know you said you do sound, but just being able to do sound won't get you anywhere in terms of pitching a game idea, you need to have skills in other fields.

 

Once you can make a small game, then you can slowly begin increasing the scale of your games.

Have you made a game of a similar size before and can you link to it?

No offense, but your post screams "I'm enthusiastic, but have no idea what I'm doing."

no I've never made one

Maybe you should hold your horses and first try to make your own space invaders, pacman or even pong clone. If you have to start from scratch that pretty much means: "see you in a couple of years".

So you're thinking more about being in a management position? What degrees or previous experience do you have? What demographics are you trying to reach with this new product? How much funding are you willing to give to such a project?

my previous experience isn't related to gaming but it is me running a 20 person company around nc and sc for pc repair and still is running well and I'm going to do a kickstarter not sure about the budget yet im still working on figuring out a lot of stuff I just want a crew before getting really in depth with this idea

Those may seem like simple games, but they are rather large, with lots of art, story writing, and programming. What kind of funding are you going to give this project?

Well, that seems like a good first step before bringing other people into a new business.

and gameplay? your talking about the game without noticing gameplay features. even like how EA tries to sell each year a new version of fifa by saying "it's improved" without saying what or if there are new gameplay features.

As long as they keep improving QATAR and I'm the only person that gets to play that team in my group hangouts. That's all that matters.
