Ok, i can hear you all :)

How about these first steps :

1. Getting a official statement from envato if they would coordinate the project in any way.

2. If they dont, would they allow us to use the envato branding for the game and would they take the responsibility for the promotion of the final product.

3. After clearing the above points, looking for people who have good knowledge of the programming for different OS / plattforms to get a brief idea of what we have to think about before the concept will be written down to paper.

So, who would clear point 1. and 2. seriously with envato as a first step ?

Hey guys—

I think it’s a great idea, but, again, the primary hurdle is finding the right person to organize it. As others have noted, this really wouldn’t be the type of thing that Envato staff would organize. It’s much better suited for a community project. But, certainly, we’d be happy to promote the final product across some of our sites.

To get things going, one of you needs to take the initiative and start coordinating each phase of the project. Maybe elect 5 candidates, and then create a new thread where people can vote who the leader is??

I think it would be cool if we, Authors create a team and handle things on our own. I would not mind donating.

At the risk of sounding trite, “better to try something great and fail than try nothing and succeed.”

Would it really be all that much of an organizational nightmare if broken up into small steps? We like games & contests – start out with a contest for pitches for the overall concept. Run it for a month have everyone vote for their favorite idea. We could do the same thing with graphic backgrounds, element designs, sound effects, music, etc.

The open source community manages this all the time. Why not us?

Fail or succeed, I’ll contribute what audio I can.

This is actually a great approach. Instead of having a set team (which could fall apart), we could use the power of the network to drive every step of the way.

+1 Great idea…

We’ll still need a team to pull all the parts together though :-)
