that's bodzilla's doc.
to me, that thing's purpose was just to get some ideas going, and think about what kind of restrictions a project like this would have to adhere to
you might have noticed how it's only like 2 or 3 pages of ranting and nothing close to a design doc.
the fact you're making assumptions on a 3-page rant-document feels silly.
i don't see why you're making such a fuss about this.
i've clearly stated what my intentions are, and that's as simple as it is.
i'm not planning some super secret behing-the-scenes-takeover where i get to steal people's time and get them to make stuff for free for my personal gain.
you're looking too deeply into what this thread is (for) it was just a probe to see how many people might be interested.
if only 4 people were to say 'i MIGHT be interested' it ends there, as it is now, there's about 10 peple that 'might' be interested, which is a different story all together.
there's no point in going head first into HURR LETS MAKE A GAME Y'ALL
i'll say it again, the reason behind this, is just a fun experiment, to see if we can come together, and make something worth playing, in an open-source-type environment, have fun making some stuff, and maybe come out with a game worth playing in the end.
i know a whole bunch of people here would love the opportunity to make an actual game, and another bunch of people can definately use whatever comes out of it as something on their resume/portfolio.
is that enough to appease your inner whiner?
