With permission from Skot we can finally get into the planning phase, or pre planning phase more like it, more so into the think tank phase.
We obviously need to figure out who has what skills and which and or what they would like to provide this newly founded pet project of ours with.
So anyone yearning to partake in our endeavor for an Lz Zombie Game riddle me this!
Zombies don't need something when they go on
boat trips. What is the thing that they don't need to use?
Ponder on this meanwhile we continue...

People with necessary code language knowledge
( Java,PHP, Visual Basic, Python,C++, C# combined w XNA, Ruby, Lua, Mel)
For starters, understanding of algorithms is also preferable, but one can’t demand heaven and earth at the same time so the clue here is to use several voluntary programmers and have some more experienced programmers look over the code for errors and apply shortcuts which less experienced programmers may not know about. Also keep the source code within the ranks of the experienced to avoid pollution.
Creative Consultants & Game Testers
Those who aren’t fitting into any other category, but still have valid knowledge and contribution input to further the game progression.
Each Department will have heads with veto, based on their experience and knowledge.
Communication methods we need:
A web page/Forum( Public relations&showcasing)
Teamspeak/Ventrillo server (Department Management& Decision making)
IRC (Public relations)
Note though this will be nonprofit, fully voluntarily and open source as we can keep it, without leaking too much information of how and or what we`ll do.
We`ll keep it inside our ranks and avoid any leaks about how to, so that no big shots will run ahead of us.
Simple because they are better staffed, skilled or has more dineras to throw at their project.
Depending on game type profit would be possible, Digital Sales/monthly fee lower than standard. But this profit will likely go into an Lz Fond for future projects, servers and or actual payments. I.e. A Movie, Another game, Lz Con, where we possibly actually support people with travel, cause people matters to us.
If I missed something please point it out to me in an Lz Message and I’ll update this thread, Other than that please keep this discussion visible and avoid side tracking/off topic discussion.
Oh and the answer for the Riddle Is a Life vest.
