Yeah, I treat It more like voluntary work, with a little tip ^^. I had to split my very limited startup budget among several devs. Wish I could pay more.

Still I am insanely thankful to anyone who decided to help. It will be worth it, I promise!

Yeah $30 is worth a couple of hours work at most, but on the other hand it is a pretty good offer for those who are saving up for a licence or something else. In my experience even a dollar can be tough to earn from a game, or maybe my games are just lame? life of an indie right? ;) Good luck!

Actually I postponed it to 1 November ^^. Need extra few days to polish it.

http://Gurgosus.eu/ - bookmark it and wait.
I might post something between 20 and 1.

Sounds like a cool opportunity. 2 Questions:

-Does length of the game matter? For example, would a single level platformer work like in those mini-games like Warioware?
Knowing this will help people that are considering doing this. Or would you rather have a tight little indie like game jam game with multiple levels (in this platforming example) ?

-Would the game be included, or would you withhold the 30$ if we were to slip our website or author name into the game somehow? Like a simple text name at the bottom of the screen. I'm really curious on how you feel about that one.

Thanks

Yeah, I would be curious on the credit given to the dev...

If the credit is right, and I could use it on my portfolio, I might throw some games together!
(Would I still own the rights? or would they be completely yours?)

I am looking for early NES styled games at the moment, with a little bit of indie/jamish/molydeux/kitsch/camp/bootleg twists to them. It's a pastiche/parody to old games.
The amount of content per game would be similar to NES Donkey Kong, or Mario bros. (original, not super). I want bite sized, but complete games.
At the moment, I am looking for aid in making "first party" games. They all have a certain theme to them and requirements.

Later, there will be third party games on it which you could sell at our store, and, optionally, by yourself. Semi-digitally. I will put quality control on these games, just like the ones I make myself or with the help of hired devs. Something similar to "Nintendo Seal of Quality" actually.

Yes, at the tittle screen of games, and at the "so-called developers" section on the website.

Yes, you will be fully credited.
The first party games I am currently looking for are to be kept exclusively at Gurgosus website.
After the release you will be able to add your third party games to Gurgosus, provided they will be high enough quality and they will fit the technical requirements.
Third party games can be uploaded anywhere else, if you want.
