I'm looking for extremely talented graphic artists, animators and action script 2 & 3 programmers.
I found an incredible artist the last time I tried this "approach" and I've given him $1000's worth of work and will continue to give him a lot more in the future.
My goal is build a long term and mutually beneficial arrangement with the right kind of people.
In addition to talent I'm looking for people that can communicate clearly and are reliable. I can't stress how important that last part is. If you tell me you are going to do something (anything) I need to know I can count on you.
For an example of the kind of quality I'm looking for (and perhaps a few minutes of fun) please go to the link below and take a look at my last game
Asteroids Revenge III - Crash to Survive

If you are potentially interested in working with me this is how I would like to proceed:
1.) Make a post here and include Igor's quote from Asteroids Revenge (click About on the main menu). Your bid should be an interesting number… nothing boring like $5000.
2.) Give me your hourly rate. Really this is just a starting point I'm very happy to increase it when I see quality and reliability from someone.
3.) Include 2 or 3 links to your best work. Do not give me a huge list, just pick a couple things you are the most proud of.
4.) Perhaps tell me a little about yourself but please don't spend much time on this... yet.
If I like your work then I will contact for the next steps. This will typically involve additional questions about what you do and have done and hopefully we can learn a bit more about each other.
If that goes well I will likely give you a small task or job to do. This will be the "final" test to see if we can work together efficiently and if I like what we come up with.
If I have you do work for me I will always pay for it. These 'test' jobs will be structured in a way that they will only take a few hours of your time.
Initially I am looking for people to help out with games and some personal projects. However, I can potentially provide non-game higher paying work to people that really prove themselves.
The time line on this work is not urgent. If you are busy now but might be interested in the future just let me know. I’ll try to respond to posts quickly but don’t be worried if it takes me a few days to get back to you.
Looking forward to working with you!
Please read and follow the direction listed in the post. I will not respond to you if you can't do this. Communication and understanding are the most important things in a relationship (of any kind).
