Hi!
I am Rick. I am trying to start a new Indie Game Company called "Tekbird". Currently I have no current members yet.
You don't have to have a big portfolio.

What I am looking For:
-Programmers/Coders (About 2)
-Graphic Designers (About 2)
-Artists (About 2)
-Good Story Makers (About 2)

About Me:
I am 14, My Full name is Rick Chavez. Coder.

For Programmers:
The Programming Languages Recommended are- Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, C++, C#, Objective C.

For Graphic Designers:
The Most you are going to be doing is Pixel art, maybe some 3-D stuff, but you don't have to know everything. Just be good at virtual Drawing.

For Artists:
This means as in, in REAL LIFE, not virtually. If you have a camera, after you're done with drawing In RL you take a pic or scan it. Send it to the Graphics Designer and then That's pretty much it.

For Good Story Makers:
You will have to have a very creative imagination, with detail. Not too much.

For EVERYONE:
You probably will get paid, after our first paid-game comes out.

About The Team:
I am looking for people that are friendly, we will get to know each other, so it wouldn't be as awkward. I am also looking for people that are dedicated. To their job.

My Ideas:
First, I would like to make a Free-To-Play game or Demo/Trial. So people could get to know us a bit more.

Do you have any game development skills? All I see is what you're looking for, unpaid work positions (let's not confuse equity share and paid positions), and that you need a team.

Most importantly, what kind of game would we be making? Getting together with other developers is not something I'm interested in, unless all those developers/artists/writers are interested in making a game that I'm also interested in.

So...you're looking for a team, which you won't pay untill your game comes out...How do you know that your game will sell?A game that you don't even know what it will be about.
Do you have any experience in the languages you've listed?For how long have you delt with game developing?Even simplier things like Flash games?

I think the question that everybody wants to ask is "What are you bringing to the table"? It takes a lot of time and effort to make a game, and some has a lot bigger work load than others.

Managing and finacing is very important.He is 14.A teenager.A phase, which makes most people irresponsible.I'm usually optimistic about such things like starting a gaming company, however it's really hard for me to see success here.

He says that he is a coder. That's all the info we get though : D

You're right. I don't want to say someone can't do something but managing an indie team at 14 years of age is almost like a dream.

At least he tries, I give him points for his guts.

RickRicer, please bring information to the table, to get something, you need to give, show us a great game idea that you have expanded, showing that you are able to manage 4-6 people and make it smooth

Keep at it
