King has some goss for you guys, if you care to listen
So as you know im working on a game. I had the idea to make a top down plane shooter; one level. It is simple, within my abilities and something i could get done in a relatively short amount of time. It is something i wanted to add to my portfolio to use to apply for jobs and i could also try sell it on the side. If there was enough interest i could work on the rest of the levels and it would be my full time job.
anyway I pitched the idea a few months back to a friend and he was all on board. Present day, he has been working on writing up a story for it and for some reason because his story is "so amazing" it needs to be a more complex game . he wants to make it into a full blown 6 axis plane sim with full animated cut scenes, cockpits, multiple planes and charaters, high res terrain, VR etc..... his also got it in his mind he will surly get a dev grant of 20k USD and he wants rent a office space, hire voice actors, animators, riggers and more.
we haven't even started making the first level and we are armature game devs and he pretty much wants to make starwars battle front. he doesnt think it is any more work and he also laughs at all my ideas about making mobile games to maybe get cash flow on the side to help fund bigger projects.
anyway he is the kind of guy that would blow a companies budget, so; in the words of shark tank "im out"
