becomes nearly unstoppable. US and Europe begin Arms race. Britain begins
Second League of Nations, goes to Africa and absorbs most countries. Australia
joins, knowing US could easily take them. Asian countries join League of

government collapses. Population reduced to 50% of original. Riots take place
all over the world, most go into hiding or become bandits, some try to
re-establish new governments. Game takes place in 2154, begins on July the 4th

I am a programmer and have experience with Unreal.  Your post doesn't really sell me on this project because there's nothing here about the game design or specific tech needs.  To be honest, right now it reads as, "here are the beginnings of a story I wrote; I want a programmer to convince me he or she will make an excellent game out of it."

I'd suggest posting about the actual game and what you need (including your own design portfolio) if you want this to succeed.

Never team up with the idea guy
And on top of that you're not selling the idea. It sounds boring and political. Too widespread to be feasible for non-commercial game.

Yet another load of uninspired drivel posted by a 'game designer' who is essentially a bad story writer who wants to take advantage of a team of skilled individuals. As 'creative director', would it really be too much of a stretch to post a summary of the gameplay mechanics so that people would know what project they are joining?

Do you have any clue about how to make a game? You don't demonstrate any knowledge of the tech that you plan to use and you expect to lead the project? Also, it sounds like you decided to eat a book by Hideo Kojima and vomit what was left all over this page.

So in other words... you want other people to make a AAA game while you sit back and bark orders at them?  The only way you get away with that is if your name is something like Shigeru Miyamoto... and you haven't shown us anything that proves you are remotely close to that. 

Why not write a novel, if you want to show this story?  It would be far easier.

In the mean time... How's the gameplay going to work?  Exactly what mechanics will need to be programmed?  What models will need to be made.  If you MUST be the ideas guy, the very least you can do is make a full GDD.

To be honest I don't mind joining your project as the ideas guys. My first idea will be to abruptly end the project before something terrible happens to Mexico.
