Sorry about the late rely. Only just discovered I had a note.
The original game is doing relatively well in US, ranking under 30 in RPG section and making the 'New' list. I'm not sure how familiar you are to the SPRG genre, but you like it, I suggest you to try out the game.
Now, to answer your questions: 1) It is a pretty generic fantasy world, but yes, you'd need to know at least what happened in the first game. 2) Major plot is already written. As you said, it is for creating dialogs and subplots. You can introduce your own characters to the plot though. 3) It is really up to you. However small it is, if what you've written goes into the game, I will credit you, and you'll see your name in the product.
Hope that answers your question. If you have any more, please let me know!
As much as I'd like to give Partia a go, I'm afraid I don't have an Apple device of any kind. But if it's just a matter of writing dialogue and subplots, I'm pretty sure I could get by with a quick summary of what's happened so far and what's needed now. I'm familiar with SRPGs in general.
I'd also be willing to do some proofreading. The text in the Broken Lineage trailer looks alright, but the writing on the website could do with an editor. I know that doesn't necessarily reflect the games, but even just typos in bits of dialogue can make it all look a little unprofessional.
Anyway, if you're happy for me to provide some writing, or if you just need someone to edit what you've got, let me know. I'd be happy to get involved.
Hi, for the original game team members had options from payment, percentage, or a mix of the two. The percentage was determined by the estimated contribution to the game. For example if you made 10 maps you'd get 5% or get paid a dollar per tile or something like that. Anyways, 5% of nothing is nothing, so most artists took payments, and I encouraged such way as well, except now that I'm pretty broke so can't afford to pay.
Now the artist I'm searching for would be pixel artist for making maps and some more units, and illustrator for things like characters and backgrounds.
