"The maximum budget for this project is $1,000 and I need it done in 10 days or less."

I love how he wants a "clone" of carnage blender and then proceeds to change almost everything that makes CB unique.
I also love how they're only willing to pay $1,000 and want it completed within 10 days.
July 14 2008 1:23 AM EDT
wonder who is he =x
July 14 2008 1:31 AM EDT
Lol, I so agree with INDColtsFan18. 10 days, max $1000 to code the site? AND all it's internals? This person obviously has no sense of business, let alone sense of gameplay.
I like how he wants to let players play as much as they want. With this type of battling, the people who do the best are the people who have no life.

stratholm... i got bored of it :)

We have a saying in video production (and probably any other type of project based thing)...
Pick any two (but ONLY two).
i.e. If you want it CHEAP and FAST it won't be GOOD.
(the corollaries are if you want it FAST and GOOD it won't be CHEAP and if you want it CHEAP and GOOD it won't be done FAST).
He might as well have said "Make me an RPG." or "Copy all of those other cookie-cutter MMORPGs." xD
Seriously, though. Monsters, groups (parties), quests, 'traditional' leveling system? Methinks this guy should go join up with Blizzard to help make Diablo III.
"Admins should be able to change anything about the site or the game from the admin panel easily without needing to know how to code or anything. Everything should be easily done and gotten to."
Oh, wait. He doesn't know how to program. Nevermind. xD
I just want to know why he didn't add the biggest missing aspect of CB2...
Pants of course.
July 14 2008 1:58 AM EDT
@Last Grasp - I heard that before in my career development class.
@[RX3]Entreri - I second that. I'm switching over if he adds pants to the game.
Just kidding, I really don't care about pants. I mean in CB.
LG, that holds true in contracting for the most part as well ^_^

what the heck?
This guy is hilarious, thanks for the link!
July 14 2008 2:33 AM EDT
There was a post here along similar lines not so long ago. I can't find it, but I'm sure Jon commented in the thread.
July 14 2008 2:44 AM EDT
that's why people want to clone his games
I solved it.
Now if he asked for something... you know, logical and rational... like which languages were used to create CarnageBlender and the programs needed to run it on a computer for testing phase, and how to properly transfer it to the internet once all the major/minor beginnin kinks are fixed...
Thats what I want. xD
Why? Because I want to make a small little game I can keep on my computer and just personalize and turn into my own little fantasy world, never to be seen by anyone but me. :P
I'm selfish, lemme be. >_>
On second thought, I'd probably give up before I even get anything cool done with the coding, so it'd probably all be for naught anyways. xD
Pretend I said nothing. >_>
as a newbie programmer (or a wannabe programmer - only had 1 course in varsity for it and no intention to do more), I have some ambitions regarding to the recreational games I made (a.k.a. I have some time to spend - let's program a game). Everytime I finish the first part and try the second, something just won't work. :P I don't think it is easy to make a CB clone, and I certainly won't be trying for $1000 and has to finish in 10 days. (maybe a better programmer can do it, but definitely not me)
July 14 2008 4:33 AM EDT
Mutilaria, I had that once, got a shot for it. Should have worn more mosquito repellent.
GAH! My master plan has been foiled! You shall pay for this!
Seriously though, a carnage blender clone? Has the world gone MAD?! There CAN NOT BE TWO CARNAGEBLENDERS!!
Anyways back to playing Carnage Blender... 2.
Call it dumb all you want, but the response that matters was:
"<Jonathan> This is changemonth gold!"
I noticed a lot of Indian programmers or teams bid on those things. They work very cheap, but 10 days??? I couldn't program a fraction of the game in that time. And why 10 days? is that from when the post was made or when the bid was accepted. If the former, time is dwindling. If the latter, why?
July 14 2008 11:31 AM EDT
Well, all I got to add is that mimicry is a form of respect and if that guy wants to copy the game (in his own wierd way) then obviously Jon should feel flattered. (I mean no one would want to copy my college project). As for the game itself, I think the game is so good because of its dynamic nature; something which cannot be simply gained by copying the game. It's an ongoing process which will never stop. Just think about. Even if this guy manages to copy the game, CB will have already evolved to a newer level. It's not just the game, it's the people, their interactions, their suggestions, the environment (and of course the strategic loop holes) which makes it so successful. You can copy a game but where will you find a bunch of loyalists like that? Cheers to the game and the people who play it....

This "clone" game sounds like crap. I'll stick with the original CB, thank you.
"The maximum budget for this project is $1,000 and I need it done in 10 days or less. Please do not go outside the budget or time range or your bid will be declined. "
This is hilarious. I've been writing a new RPG in Python that has taken me the better part of a year so far. 10 days? Ha!
July 14 2008 1:44 PM EDT
I believe this is what he wants:
July 14 2008 1:49 PM EDT
Jonathan should take the bait and code the the game in 10 days, take this guy's money, and watch as noone plays and instead donates their worldly possessions to CB.
July 14 2008 1:56 PM EDT
It's unpossible to code a game like this in 10 weeks, let alone 10 days.
July 14 2008 1:57 PM EDT
I know nothing of your ways
I just know it would be funny as hell.
I coded the CB clone, here is a screenshot:
July 14 2008 6:21 PM EDT
Lol nice fex
I wouldn't play...this is my all-time favorite game!
July 15 2008 2:46 AM EDT
So assuming this guy wanted to name his game Mutilaria, I assume he would have the game located at mutilaria.com, correct?
lol that's awesome Pixelsage!
Hehe the best $1.95 that was ever spent on a domain!
He lives in Detroit? When I was staying there we called that game "Going to the bar" But the pets were just rats following you around and all the opponents were crackheads and hobos
July 15 2008 5:09 AM EDT
That is pure brilliance Pixel!
July 15 2008 5:27 AM EDT
Omg. +300 pixelsage
July 15 2008 5:42 AM EDT
That was filled with win Pixel.
July 15 2008 6:13 AM EDT
Saged as it should! Now I want to know, can you actually get a domain on $2 these days, and from what company?
Excellent link Pixel. I liked the detail on the word owned. Looked good :D
July 15 2008 3:59 PM EDT
What? $2 domain? D= Where?!
July 15 2008 4:56 PM EDT
Wow Pixel Sage, that is so very wrong.
I like it. :)
July 15 2008 10:14 PM EDT
Looks like according to this page, there's 1 bid of $770. I wonder where that's gonna go =P
Does anyone really believe this is real? I don't. MULTIlaria? lol... Come on now.
