I would actually be fine to give you IP, so long as you mentioned me.
Sorry about the username, old account XD

My original idea was to bring a team together and from whiten the people who had an interest find a team lead then fill in other positions as the team came together. I own Hollyhellgames.com and from my previous post i wanted to publish under that name as I own it. I have no problem with the team(s) coming up with their own name as i have a few myself for the actually team name. If they decide they dont ant to be tied to holyhell thats fine ill keep that for my personal projects. Ill fund what i can when it come to websites and fees but ill also be counting on kickstart to help out. Im working on my own project and i assume that everyone else is too, im just trying to bring people together to share ideas and produce games as a team. This is new for me, as im in the military (8 years) as a logistic specialist (leading people, finance) but im working towards a BA in game development/interactive media.From my experiences working with different people it seems like people do better work when you have a good team around you with direction and a goal. I think as long as i can get a good team together I can help guide that team in a direction thats good for everyone involved.

As for the IP ownership. Id like it to be a partnership unless the designer will release rights to it. As I would be paying for publishing, website and other fees id own majority. Shared ownership of the IP would remain between me (under what ever name the team decides to go with) and the original designer. But only to the point as long as the original designer remained part of the development team. If they left the they would get the option to buy owning rights back to the game (which would be decided by the remaining members of the team). Thats just my idea for IP ownership but I dont have any incite or experience in the area.

Well I offer good luck. I hope you form your team. I think a good cooperative team is awesome. however, I've been tinkering with Pen and Paper, board game and fluff stuff for years. I really can't bring that to the table and lose out on controlling IP of the material.

Sharing the profits on an IP while in cooperative company work I'm ok with. Holyhell and the team keeping the game, I'm ok with, but lose of creative ownership of a fabricated setting. eh. i'm not ok with. It's not the game ownership that bothers me. it's losing the IP.I just can't lose all control of my IP in other areas(not just the one VG) due to one mini game under the label of another company. :)

however, besides my reservations I offer the best of luck to you finding a team :). There is a lot of people who are looking and I'm sure will fall under the banner.

I also personally don't have a problem with your name :) though someone did have a point. There is a small, but loud group that will take offence.

@ jayderyu: I see your point, after reading your thoughts I understand and agree with you. I dont want to build a team that just takes over ideas and says "thanks for the idea, have a good day". IP should stay with the person who created the original idea, but how would it work if the holder of the IP left the team. Would sign rights/ownership to that game so the team/publisher doesnt have to pay to use the original idea? But this would probably be better to discuses on a case by case base with some kinda legal party involved.

@chadnon, as a professional artist i can say it's an interresting idea but i have some questions : what's your role on that team? are you a pro or amateur ? have you already got some experriences on this domain?

also, i think the team name is not more important than the team members itself so u must have the complete members to finally get an idea all together about the team name, identity, and especially the project plan and the role of everyone on it.

the artist director idea is also an important side on the game developement, and the same thing about the technical director (this is in the case it's about a big team)

but maybe for now u just need a good developper, a good artist and a game designer.

let us know about what (You) can bring for this team and then we see ^^

Good Luck! :)

@Bladesquad: I thought i said this is a provisos post but maybe i over looked it. Im active duty Military(8 years) as a logistics specialist, which means i work with people, planing, finance and other things. Iam new to Construct 2 (currently working on a project) and working towards a BA in Game development and Interactive Media.If enough people came together could have the possibility of multiple teams. Pros and amateurs working on different projects but working with each other as a whole. Ill be helping with what i can with projects but id be putting myself more on the publishing side. Covering what fees i can, coordinating websites and kickstart for funding. Making sure on projects its a balance of work not one person doing all the work or on the other side some doing none. If in the end im not needed as part of the team, i would step away. id just be happy i was able to bring a team together.

Hey Chadnon I'm an semi-professional sound designer, artist and game designer. I have worked with a team before and I would be interested in joining your team if you're still looking for people.
