I wanted to tell all of my DA friends about an MMORPG project that I have been working on for a while now, called "Project Tokala." I've recently sent out invites to friends on various other art sites that I have been on, basically to spread a bit of awareness of it, and hopefully to bring in some more people to our project.
Basically, I have been looking for anyone who has an interest in RPG games....mainly MMORPGs. And I know a lot of you do, and a lot of you are really amazingly talented artists. You see, I started this project back in February(so it is relatively new) and I had started it mainly to bring together some of my gaming friends on Facebook all together to brainstorm and share ideas for a new game project.
Most of them seemed very enthusiastic in the beginning, and they all helped me so much in coming up with new races and a little bit of lore. However, lately the project has fallen entirely in my hands alone...and all the work that I had spent on building the perfect website to exchange ideas with my teammates in has been in vain. No one wants to join the website forums, or post in them, and everyone seems to have lost inspiration, have lives that are way too busy, just grown bored of the project in general.
I have had a bit of luck with getting a few people to join up by posting ads on MMORPG websites, but no one has yet to actually contribute at all to the forums. In fact, one guy said that he would bring in his team to the project, as well as other teams, with programmers...but it never happened.
Now, I am troubled with what to do. I just cannot shoulder an entire project. While I do have a vast imagination, a project of this size needs many dedicated minds to come together and collaborate. The forums are the perfect place to do this, because many different people can be on at once, sharing ideas for stories and posting it for others to see in an organized way.
I was not able to achieve this in the original Facebook page, because all content would have been blended together. The website forums were the best way to preserve everything in a very organized fashion. But now, I don't know what to do. Next year my subscription will run out, and if I have no one to collaborate with, there won't be any use to keep the site going. Which is why I am so desperate now to find some more willing participants to aid me in this very ambitious project!!
What I need are creative minds, and people with a passion for gaming. I am looking for writers and storytellers, concept artists and illustrators, producers and animators, voice actors and musicians, and pretty much anyone who is full of great ideas and a passion for this kind of thing. This is a collaborative effort, and anything can be changed around when fresh ideas are conceived. Everyone has a vital part in the project, and no idea will be left out of consideration.
Each story and idea is thought up, posted and reviewed by the community, and changes can be decided on and improved on by the community.
Since the game is still in the concept phase, all ideas and concepts are welcome. And anyone who hangs out on DA, and happens to visit my page is also welcome to join the forums...even if to just view them and give suggestions or input. So please, everyone!! Please come and check us out! Our website is: www.projecttokala.com/forums
Hope to see you there, and God bless you all!!! Have a good week, or month....or year...or...millennium!! PEACE!!!
