I am looking to have a game made that can be used via MSN Messenger with up to 8 players.
I'm not sure of the limitations etc. that there are with multiplayer games so if 2 is max please state this.
The game is based on an old simple game that actually has very simple straightforward rules so should not be too diffcult to program, similar to snap. The game should allow players to team up and actually play against the computer and not each other. Graphics would also be basic.
Each player should have an account where all scores etc. are stored on a central server which can be accessed whenever playing the game or via the games website.
The game should be written so compatible with most commonly used versions of MSN Messenger.
I am only looking for a guide price on this and commissioning the project is basically dependant on the prices offered.
