Contributors for Only the Shadow

2014-08-14 17:09:11 by brutalexcess

Only the Shadow, which some of you may know, is going to become a collectible crystal game and interactive story in one. The aim of the video game is to teach the player that maintaining mental health and seeking inner peace is essential for mental survival, if not survival overall.

As we are all fully aware by now, Human life - just like all other life - have survival instincts. We all do what we can to survive. This game teaches you how to survive from a spiritual perspective, taking into account real-life events and materials. All known crystals, using Judy Hall's "The Illustrated Guide to Crystals" book as reference, will be added to this game, and its properties mimicked to match that of the game's combat mechanics.

If you are a contributor, you will be listed below under one of the following roles: Artist, Coder, Writer or Musician.

As a reward for your hard work, you will gain a reserve of money via Newgrounds monetising system. Later, I wish to put the completed game on my own website and collect Pay-What-You-Want donations to the project (accessing more content to the game), which will then be shared with members of the team. However, MONEY IS NOT THE FOCUS.

The aim of this project is to help contributors improve on their skills through this collaborative work, otherwise I would not be writing this project to begin with.

In a way, I tend to get carried away with wanting to make such a large project that it never gets finished, because I lack the self-motivation to do so. This is a huge problem I have which I hugely wish to overcome, and I cannot do that without contributors and your support. This is a large project, but an ambitious one.

With all your combined efforts, we can make a game to stand the test of time and really make something unique and original. Those of you who are in the list above, I hope we can all help each other in improving our skills and building a game together.
