HAGD, Inc - MMORG
« on: January 24, 2006, 02:47:48 PM »
HAGD, Inc is a Philadelphia based startup looking to develop a MMORG.  This project has approximately 20 individuals (artists and programmers) already on board.  We have spent time selecting the graphics engine and the network engine. Ogre and Raknet have been selected as a base for the project.
 
Currently all work is being done from home utilizing email, AIM and Skype.  All developers are expected to put in at minimum of 20 hours per week.  Stock in HAGD, Inc. will be issued to all team members at game launch with offers of full time and part time employment to key persons that seek it.
 
We are looking for AI, client side, and server side c++ programmers.  Game programming experience while desired is not a must however c++ knowledge is a must.  The interested parties will also have to spend lots of time upfront learning Ogre and/or Raknet if they do not know these already.  The server(s) will be Linux with Postgres as the DB.  The client side will be Windows and Linux with first efforts aimed at Windows.  We are aiming for a game with good graphics (not great) and outstanding game play with AI throughout.  The goal is to have a beta game ready for free play by this summer latter moving to a free/member play product.  Development and improvements will be continuous always expanding the game.

From experience, if you're going to add the overhead off cross-platform support, throw in Mac OSX support. It's BSD based, so much closer to Linux than Linux is to Windows, and because people more often port from Windows to Mac than Windows to Linux, its also closer to Windows than Linux is. My experience has been that gaming companies get more return on their investment from Mac than Linux ports and since MacOS moved to a BSD platform, its far less of an either/or question. In a sense, you can almost get your Mac sup-/port to pay for the Linux sup-/port.

$0.02, and from a mac-hater.
