I'm am the Creative manager of a company up in Mora, MN. My friend and I have been working on a board game for the last 4 years that fantasy based. This game is moving forward and as we launch we want a web-based game to follow. It would not be graphically intense at all - but very strategically intense and would follow many of the same rules as the board game.
I cannot release all info on the name or what work has been completed until we have a coder chosen. But I can give a very good description of the game and a great example as well. The game that comes the closest to our and is very much how we want it structured is [[url removed, login to view]]. This game is a simple downloaded program that accesses an Access database for its player info and game commands.
We are looking to expand a bit on this concept with castles and card selections. Card trading may also be an option. This will very quickly grow into a much greater plan as we will be hosting live tournaments with dollar by-ins etc. But that's down the road.
I am most interested in someone with some gaming experience in Turn-based strategy games and who, after the first stage and payment, depending on success, would be interested in staying on for hosting and further game development for a percentage of profits. I will be able to handle layout, copy, and graphical interface looks.
