I am looking for someone to design a text based game. I have plans for several different ones as well, so if I like your work there will be several other projects in the future as well.
The first one will be sort of similar to [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] but with my own twist on it. The main premise (building an army, attacking for money, alliance system, messaging, etc) will be the same as these 2, but there will also be extra features thrown in there like other resources (food, gold, iron, wood, stone) and different technologies. More details will be provided as we narrow down providers (must sign NDA). It will also need a simple CMS and admin/moderator panel to manage users, as well as to modify the units, strengths, prices, etc so we can find the perfect balance after playing around with it some, and I would like to have a place for people to auction off accounts to other users for either ingame or real money.
Please include the word penguins in your bid or PM so I know you read the requirements and looked at the example sites. I would like to spend $250-$300 for the basics of the system. Extra may be available if you can also do the graphics and stuff.
It would be great if the initial closed alpha testing could start by Aug 1 with no graphics or anything special, just the bare bones of the game functional (I had another freelancer, but the project fell through so I had to file a dispute and repost) because that is what I was advertising, but I know that is kind of pushing it.
