Hello Sir, I have a proposition for you. But first please listen to my story...
Several years ago when I was rather young, I went to summer camp with a large book of King Arthur stories. At the time, I was also very infatuated with the water and the video game "Sonic and the Dark Knight". In was in these five days at camp that I remember I drew several images. Some alien fish, some aquatic fairy people I blended together from the King Arthur tales and that Sonic game, and finally several boats. Then, I lost the paper and my mind went away from what I created.
Later, when I was in Grade 7, I was a math wiz. I had started going to Kumon, a math tutoring service, two years prior and then was at a level of mathematical understanding close to early Grade 9. Thus, I powered through my math and had a lot of free time on my hands. It came one day that my teacher gave out grid paper for that day's homework (that I finished without using the paper). So I decided just to randomly doodle on the spare paper and drew a line. And then another line. Over the next three days in Math Class, after my homework was done, I continued to draw. And so was born my videogame idea. At the time I didn't know it. All I had was the top-down view of a castle wall, some fields and apart of the city's interior.
So then I grabbed a page of plain paper of the same size, placed in next the first one and continued the drawing. It was then that I utilized what I remembered of my old drawing made during those days of summer camp also. Yet, while I searched for it desperately, I couldn't mind it and had to go on memory alone. I continued creating my world and idea throughout Grade 7 and 8, asking a few classroom acquaintances for opinions on the game and for drawing of some of my ideas from talented others. (If I can, I'll try to get some of their work up on here so it can be forever immortalized on the internet.) Yet as I entered Grade 9, I stopped. It was high school, where you needed to focus on school or fail terribly on the dreaded Exams. Thus, I would like to revive my idea with new art.
Your work is very good yet I am sorry to say that I can't pay you. The least I am asking you to give me is one piece of simple art to help me. If you are willing to do more, then that is so amazing and I thank you enormously. If you don't want to, it is totally fine. In the event that you wish to help me, I would give you my skype, gmail, more details on the storyline and world I created and of course, credit of your assistance when my game comes out.
Thank you so much for listening to me, The-Shadow-King3
Congrats on Remember Me. Your work for it was fantastic, I probably wouldn't have followed it all that much if it wasn't for your stuff being presented in the first trailer. With any luck, there will be a second game (with gameplay tweaks). There really isn't that much else like it out there right now.
