My current 2 projects are with a woman in South Africa who has the game idea and is the artist [ http://sparechange.jnoodle.com/ ] and a man in New Jersey who has the idea and hires out an artist [ http://dadnasium.jnoodle.com/ ]. They both have different ways of communicating the details of their ideas with me. I am pretty flexible. For the time being, I could just use generic placeholder graphics until you get an artist. As a full time teacher my main service ( and my hobby ) is to rapidly prototype tech demos that can be used to secure funding for full time paid developers to take over what I've started for you.
nothing worth mentioned, just a few failed attempts so far, on my fourth try. I've learned for real world stuff bringing in new people has to be a core mechanic, or else things online get stale. Wonder if you agree with that?
Let's collaborate! Do you have a design doc or storyboard or animatic and sprite sheets? If so I'll get right on it! I also teach 2 sections of game design and some of my veterans would like a challenge too if you want to generate a few variations?
