In search of head developer for MMO

I am looking for a lead developer for an MMO I am creating. The details on this are going to be limited for now until I find out who I am going with but when I say MMO, I mean a true MMORPG, not like the iMob style games. If you have experience creating applications for the iPhone I'd love to get in touch with you to see what we can work out. Please e-mail me at thisisnotsully@gmail.com or sean.sullivan.3@att.com

Not to sound like a d*ck or totally trash on your advertisement, but that was a pretty harsh statement. I don't play those games, but they are still considered "MMO" games (Text-Based MMO I guess is the term). MMO Stands for Massive Multiplayer Online, so to say you are making a "MMO" is a very broad and unclear statement. Im just saying... ^.^

Yea you're right. That was a harsh statement. What I meant to say is that I intend on making a true mmorpg. Something more like your modern PC mmorpg games. My apologies if I offended anybody.

You may want to specify what you want the lead Dev to do and what kind of game it is. (ie 3dOpenGL, Sprite Driven, etc.) I'm no professional developer but many developers excel in specific areas of game development.

Do you already have a team? What positions in your team are filled already? Graphic designer, 3d artist, programmer, etc..

I wouldn't expect the developer to be able to do the logic, programming and 3d models all by himself. Although I'm sure there are super game designers out there like that, I wouldn't expect it.

Sprite driven to maximize graphics =) I want the game to look nice, but run even better, so I think thats the best way to go about it.

Also, I have a graphic designer, and I am in touch with a 3d artist if needed. I am looking for a programmer at this moment in time.

This is a huge project that I expect to take a lot of time to get up and running. But my plan is to really make a revolutionary game for the iDevice

EDIT:
I have a 3D artist on board aswell as a graphic designer/2d artist and we have started some concept art/modeling already. Right now the biggest thing we could use is a good programmer that is familiar with coding (obviously) and iDevice SDK.

So you want a programmer to split the money 4 ways? Between the 2 artists and you (what do you do? Can you program or are you an artist?) and himself? I just want to understand you offer a little better...

Ok, that's cool! I actually am a new programmer myself. I am a "young" person who enjoys sports and school (and excels at them both ), but wanted to do something different. So here I am!



Good luck with your game, but I can't be a part of it because I don't have experience with big online multiplayer.
