I have a game idea!

But I don't have any idea how to make it. Would any developer be willing to make it?

So it's a pretty simple theme that we could talk and expand on. More info if your interested. I have the idea already so no time will go to waste. Devs with polish are wanted and if you got skill with pixels that would be cool.

Again pm if your interested, we'll talk more about it. I really think it's a worthy idea to at least listen to.

Why don't you learn how? Because for this idea that you claim is original (even though it probably isn't) you will probably want for money for it which would make no sense because you did nothing for it.

Try to make it yourself in gamesalad. Or take up an loan and pay a developer.
You can't get payed to come up with ideas. Everyone has at least 1
great game idea( I have over 15 ). So get to work. Do it yourself.

Ideas are a dime a pound, and developers already have more than most. If you really want your idea developed and you hope to make money from it, your only options are really either learn to do it yourself or hire a group of freelance code jockeys from elance.com or somewhere. Expect to shell out a few grand for the latter option though, and really, really entice bids from a lot of different prospects and do your research. There are a lot of hokey, half-assed outfits out there who will take twice the time to develop your app and do a crap job of it even at that. Ask for references, examples of published works, talk to the publishers of said works to find out if they were happy with the job they did, etc.

don't stop coming up with ideas!!

next time share it. honeslty it's not like someone is going to steal it and if they do oh well come up with a better one

also your ideas are priceless, as in worth "more then all the money in the world" do not commoditize them an try to "sell" your ideas do not consider the idea in terms of value or potentially valuable consider them as interests or an aspect that interests you as something you would like to try an test/prototype to see if it proves to be practical, or something you would like to try and improve upon, basically a stepping stone or a starting point if you will.

No idea is concrete it's a starting point an interest but it's never final you can always improve upon, refine or tweak an idea. Ideas are open and free.

Implementation is diferent it's more about: monetization, resource management, utilizing the best tools, sticking to the best practices, basically doing the best you can with the tools and resources available to you.

good luck!!

I have lots of ideas, it took me 2 mins to come up with so I should get 50% profits, basically you play as Eminem and you have to choose a good reaction to the person who you see, so "bitter hate" would be good for his mum...
