I dont know how to say this but Honestly when you post asking for partners here it is good to at least have an example of your work. even if you are a programmer its much better to beable to show what you can do. you are more likely to get someone to help you if you have that. Second I dont know when you started using construct but you just joined the community a couple of weeks ago so you may be more likely if you come to the chat and talk to people and yet again show your work. So i,m not trying to be mean just tell you that you are more likely to get help if you show something for it because other than that it seems like a "DO all the work for me" kinda deal

Great! Now you're making me look like an idiot.

Theres not much work i can show with construct other then 2d art and that is the one thing that i can't do very well.

I always get ideas start working on them and then the art factor stops me.

Guess ill go train myself todo 2d art for games.

Try not to be disheartened or in any way offended by the advice you receive; providing samples of work is the only way you'll find someone to work with, really.

My post was not to make you feel like an idiot, merely to give you some advice to help you get a partner. We do get some people who come by and say "I have a great Idea for a game!" "But I cant do graphics....and I cant code. Can some one Show me how to do it?" Im just pointing out that with a semi/ fully working engine (Even if it has bad graphics) will be more likly to get some one to help you than just you saying make me graphics.

Sorry If I offended you. Hope you find some one soon and if not then my saying is its always better to make your own and have them be yours and you'll get better at it, then to rip them off of another game.

This man speaks the truth.

It's cool if you can't make graphics, your fellow game developers understand perfectly. If you have a good demo that just uses stickmen or plain colored boxes that's all it really takes to shop around for an artist.

Right. It's just about what you can come up with, you can give it the needed polish later on.

This is what Braid looked like before an artist came along to polish it up:

The cool thing is that the game was already pretty much the same in this crude version. And there's no reason you can't test gameplay that way.

Indeed, show us what you can do and we are talking! That is how things go in indie game development. Blind dates tend to go awry. ;)

We dont frown on recruitment. I was just giving you a suggestion on how you might want to show a few things to have a better chance at getting some one to help you. I was only trying to help you not to discourage you. In fact No one here said anything against your post. Everything was encouraging.
