Thumbs Up A game non-lba related but very cool anyway

Hi everyone!!

im making a game and i need some help:

1st- What is the game?

the game is being made in the miraculous AGS. The story is pretty secret and will only be shared to the ones that really want to help me and can do it.
Basically, its more-or-less like in the B2TF movie, a young guy goes to the past, in the same place where he lives, and the game shows the interaction of him (someone from our time) with the habitants of thousand years in the past.

The story goes in one of the Greek islands, Santorini. The game goes in one little island inside the island os Santorini. heh. And, the game name is 2500 b.C., which is the date that he goes back in time...

2nd- In what can I help?

- Concept art. I need artists that can draw landscapes, some people, and mainly get the picture of how was that time and place, and inspire me to create the game, and something like a storyboard, and you could even create part of the story

- Reference. I need people that can search, give me info about technical information of that time, like for example: Could they make steel objects in that time and location? Obviously not, cos i searched that already, but there are other stuff necessary. I dont know much about those islands (in fact, close to nothing) so i need info, and it would be great help if someone travelled there already

And thats all. The rest ill do myself. Ill do the Scripting, graphics, music.. a game fully mine, and im offering to someone who can help me to be in the credits too!

one important thing: if you dont really care, is a dumbass, or is just trying to get your name in the credits of a cool and big (and probably famous when i finish it) game, and will help me with almost nothing, then i dont need you.
second important thing:DONT post any art or help material here, PM me or email me. It is supposed to be confidencial until release. And before you ask: no, i wont put any screenshot. Screenshots will be only for the crew that will help me.

If you like my idea, and can help me, if you wish you can join me in my company

Sounds interesting. But sorry if I can't help, I can't operate much through AGS. I may have free time now, but I mostly use it for playing 'n such.

I fancy myself a bit of a history buff. I just pulled a book about the ancient Greeks out.

Lol, this project reminds me very much of the old Windows 3.x game: Castle Of The Winds. You should try that one, really.

http://www.culture.gr/2/21/211/21121a/e211ua08.html
http://www.harrys-60-greek-islands-g..._santorini.htm

hey guys, meanwhile im making the game, i spent some time to make a few sketches, you can check it here

And, btw, the reason im not posting screenshots or anything of the game is cos im trying to keep it the most secret possible, keep the surprise of the game and all, just let the ones that are going to help me see something , as for the others, u got to wait a bit and i really apreciate any help (on what i need).

Progress: 30% already!
(everytime i do a significative update in the game, ill post a progress bar so u may know the time to get excited)


edit: btw btw, forget what the first post said about not posting the help works here, you ca post here, its easier

i dont know

its just a estimate of what it is. But trust me, its about 38% really...

Yesterday ive made all the GUIs, and theyre partially working, but all the mainframe is done (i just need to fix some script lines, thats all). So now the progress would be about 40%

OMG a fan! you registered just to ask that?? WOW my game seems to be spreading fast

well, hm, i sort of decided to abandon MBN and LBA! cos it was very problematic, buggy and simple... Was very useful for me to learn stuff to make this one, but i dont want to really start fixing and remaking everything in mbn and lba, cos i would have to compress all the files to 256 colors, and compress the songs, and use only midi or mod songs... etc. At the time i made it, it was my first game, so i didnt really knew what are the first things someone should do when starting a game.. i didnt took that seriously, and the story was vague, and didnt have an aim (yet, it was very fun to make). And the main reason why im not working on it anymore its because it used lba screenshots, and i wanted to do something of my own-completely... well, almost completely of my own, for various reasons.

So, to answer your question, yes (and the crowd goes "ooohh!" ).

But, hey, if you really liked and want me to continue it maybe ill do (or you can study ags and i give you. And sorry all you guys that expected the tippet island and the mermaid cafe and all, but the game engine/system was really bad (in my opinion only)...

thanks for asking!
