I need to Prototype a rough basic game design of an already existing RPG game that we own. ([url removed, login to view])
The prototype does not need the full functionality of the current game just basic functionality. Movement for the character for example. The character being blocked, and perhaps a rough example of a map creator. That should be enough to show us if this idea can work correctly transferred to a web host. The current game uses a Client/Server RPG model. The current project was created in Director 8.5 several years ago and written in Lingo code (current source code can be provided to the winning bidder) . Place holder graphics will be used for the time being. (think: colored squares)
As I understand it I think JQuery would be the way to go for fast online functionality with the ability to grow the project in the future. This is more of an example/experiment work to show the projects feasibility to all the project partners so functionality is the primary goal. Multi-player implementation would be a secondary goal, but getting the character to move on the correct map size/change maps and getting the character to be blocked (certain map tiles should be unable to not be crossed) or covered (certain tiles should appear over the character) is more important at this time.
Look at the website for some example screenshot graphics and/or message me if you need more info.
