Iphone/Ipod touch Video Game Request for Propoals.
My business is currently in development of a game for the Iphone/Ipod touch. I am looking for quotes on the project.
My company would supply all the artwork, music, and design documents, which explain all requirements for the game. Sample levels will be drawn, all game logic will be explained and documented.
Your company would be responsible for the actual engine programming (Graphics, playing sounds, Saving, Player Control, collision detection, loading different levels), also some of the bare bones features, such as putting a object on the screen, moving to a different level through a menu, displaying text for tutorials.
The game is going to be a real time action puzzle game.
I am looking for clean, well documented code in English. Although English does not need to be your first language. I would also prefer to have atleast a weekly update, with the newest code available.
I plan to pay for the project as different mile stones are reached as follows.
Basic engine development – Collision Detection between objects, Player movement, Player unit displayed, Graphics displayed, back grounds being displayed
– 25% of payment
Middle engine development – Background Music and sound effects working. Game objects added. Action animations. Loading of level. Loading puzzle pieces.
- 25% of payment
Late Engine Development - Playable level, point tracking, Game pausing, level menu, cosmetic graphics (ie. Water, weather, etc.). Puzzle AI (Escape routine, runs away when seeing player, etc.)
-50% of payment
My company company will own the rights to all programming, work done and other assets. I would also require a non disclosure agreement, require any bug issues after completion to be supported for 3 months. (Other change of scope, or additional expansions will be paid separately.)
I believe in showing credit where credit is due so you/your team will have the option to be put into the credits, as developers as you wish. Also I am willing to offer a flat rate bonus if the product is successful based on a certain amount of units sold.
I plan to continue development with other projects so this is a good opportunity for a long lasting business relationship. I look forward to your reply.
Please include the following with your bid:
-Previous Related Experience to Apple/Iphone development.
-Size of team
-Planned time line/Time available through week.
-On going hourly or flat rate after project completion for support/upgrades
