Need a programmer for a 50/50 partnership.
Wildcat! is a strategic simulation akin to the board game King Oil and Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon with a twist of Monty Python.
I have already created a 26-page Game Design Document. Next step is to build a simple working prototype. This is my FT job, and I am 100% committed to seeing the development of this game come to fruition. Goal is complete a very simplistic, working 2D prototype during January, 2017.
Please contact me at email@example.com. Thanks.
Additional Game Details
The game title is derived from the historical term of searching for underground oil where little or no known geological information was available. Back in the day, folks looking to make a fortune drilling for oil relied on a combination of intuition, luck and elbow-grease to hit the big time. This game captures the essence of that adventure by placing Players in charge of their own mid-1800s oil company, where the name of the game is Exploring, Prospecting and Financing.
But this app is no dull, straight-laced business simulation. Rather, it’s an irreverent, tongue-in-cheek, humor-driven game where Players are often heckled even by their own avatars. Take the classic board game King Oil, add the stock market aspects of Sid Meier’s Railroad Tycoon, throw in dialogue akin to vintage Monty Python, Dumb & Dumber, Kung Fu and the Good, the Bad and the Ugly… and you’ve got Wildcat!
Players must explore the wild lands of the old American Wild West in search of promising oil seeps, ancient rock outcrops and other telltale signs of potential oceans of oil beneath the parched ground. Black gold! Prospecting these areas, Players strive to gather additional clues where oil may reside, but there’s only one way to know for sure: Wildcat Drilling. But Drilling comes at great cost and capital expenditure, hence the need to raise cash. Players must enter the fray of the Stock Market to buy and sell shares in their company to fund operations.
Once the drilling begins, Wildcat, Inc. unleashes Players into an unparalleled and wacky challenge in the free-wheeling game world of oil gushers, crazed bandits, high finance and, naturally, exploding prairie dogs, pheasants and jackrabbits.
