We are looking for a FLASH Web Development Team available RIGHT NOW. (Sorry, but this is an Emergency Project, the deadline is the end of February 2008.)
We have designed a game for a social network (think Open Social API mixed with Flash), luckily (helping the schedule) the game is quite basic.
Please don’t bid unless you meet or exceed this criteria below, and can do a fantastic job on these elements:
(1) You are available RIGHT NOW.
(2) Your team is based somewhere within a 100 mile radius of Los Angeles, Southern California. (You must be within driving distance, no exceptions.)
(3) You will need to make an avatar system in Flash (think dressing up a character many different ways.) Here’s some great reference of what we’re impressed by: [url removed, login to view]
(4) The avatars created by players will be saved onto external servers, so you need to be able to handle internet communication between the Flash client and our servers. A prior history of networking with Flash is going to help a LOT with this bid.
(5) The page the Flash runs on will incorporate advertising. (This will be regular Google Style Web-Page Advertising.)
(6) The game will incorporate micro-transactions (like buying clothing for your avatar). This means you do require two way communication between your Flash client and our external Linux servers. (We have already written all the billing parts on our external servers, so you just handle transaction requests etc.)
(7) The game needs to be able to be run & managed from our external servers (time is a key factor for example, to keep everyone in sync, to monitor play styles etc.) So you will be writing some external server-side code to interface directly with your Flash client code. Our external servers run Linux / PHP & MySQL databases. So you need experience writing code on both sides. (Ideally programmers working on both sides simultaneously – to get this done quicker.)
(8) The game will require cute / fun / funny graphics, however they are mostly for the Avatar system. We can work with you finding talent to do the artwork.
(9) The API you will be using will be like the one used on Facebook / Open Social.
We need to know your experience working on Flash Games, Networked Games, and Social Network Applications. Ideally some links to previous work that demonstrates skill in the above items.
