Default Touch Town™ (Previously "U-Universe™") *NOW IN DEVELOPMENT*

Hey so I also keep having this idea in my mind for the next big hit iPhone/iTouch app. We got Pocket God, MiniGore, Doodle Jump, but now we need Touch Town™ (Previously "U-Universe™"). Basically it has an Animal Crossing-like concept (with Wi-Fi & Peer-to-Peer gameplay enabled), except you can actually have your character post updates onto to Facebook & Twitter from the game. So you can live both a fictional life and your real one at the same freakin time! Lol I want to make it the first big casual serious game. Like not just one you play for about 5 minutes, but not a hardcore game you play for 5 hours either. If you've played Animal Crossing before you should basically get a good idea of what I'm talking about, and if you are interested in providing graphics/art and/or actual coding, I can give you a lot more details on this all. So please leave a comment or PM me cause together we could really go somewhere with this one! =D

(P.S. Payment Specifications and such will be discussed in responses to comment or PM)

UPDATE: Ok so basically I've expanded onto the idea and am thinking about making U-Universe™ into the first ever "app central" as well. Like the characters you get to choose from would be 3D rendered models of characters like Doodler (Doodle Jump), Enviro Bear, John Gore (Mini-Gore), Pygmy (Pocket God), Steve Jobs, etc. If you would like to help me get a hold of such people/creators so that I can get permission/rights and you know a good way to contact them, PM me/comment!

NEW UPDATE: Progress is coming along at a steady rate, which is nice, before we go too much further, the current team wanted to let TA know that we are in desperate need of programmers. They play an essential role in developing a game, so please help us find some or help us yourself. Some 3D Models are Completed, Others are in the Works. Once we find some programmers, we will start trying to input these models in actual game code.

2/7/10 UPDATE: Touch Town™ is going great, just received some donations which should definitely help us with the development process! Released the first 3D Model Element Screenshot today on the latest post and on our Facebook Page. Thanks for all the support so far!

Thanks everyone for the support! I feel really good about all this now and I'm pretty sure we can make it happen! I've had a LOT of offers for help on art & graphics but none for help on actual programming so if you know how to code, help us out! Btw I updated the info about the app with some very interesting/cool stuff so check it out. And I will continue to keep you all posted. =D
