I've been thinking about SMBC and its future... and also about me and Exploding Rabbit's future, and how those two things work together. I've worked on SMBC for about 3 years, and I'm not the type of person that likes to do the same thing for a long time. I like to always be trying new things. It's been great ever since I finished the update because I've been doing a lot of stuff I've always wanted to do but didn't have time to before. But then I remember... there's an awesome game I spent forever making. I want it to get better, but I still want to keep focusing on all these new things I'm doing. I've just been wondering if it's possible for the game to get better without me spending all my time on it. And just so people know, I've never seen myself as a programmer. I view programming games the same way I view editing movies. I only do it because I don't have someone else to do it. My favorite thing to do on creative projects is to direct. I like to be the person that holds the vision of the project and makes sure everyone's work comes together to make something awesome. It's what I've always been best at. So I was thinking... maybe SMBC could continue without me being the programmer any more. I think it would actually work better if there was a team of programmers. The game would still have to be exclusive to the ER website (for now) because if it wasn't ER would pretty much die. We barely have enough money to get by and SMBC keeps the people coming here. And I'd still like to retain creative control of the project (for now) to make sure the quality is consistently awesome. I'm pretty good at working with teams and treating everyone fairly. What do other people think about this? Is there anyone else that'd be interested in helping to program the game? Currently the game is written in ActionScript 3, but I am uncertain about the future of the Flash platform and I think it might be better to port it to a game engine like Unity or Game Maker. Unity's future looks pretty bright and is written in C#, and I've been working with it and I know it's possible to do everything we did in Flash (although the skinning system would be pretty complicated to port). I'm also not saying I'll stop working on the game. I'm just sharing some thoughts to see if there are some different possibilities. Also if I was working with a team of people things would be moving closer to my vision of Exploding Rabbit instead of it just being 2 people. I've always wanted to have a team. Of course people working on it would not be paid for now, but it could lead to something in the future. If this happens, SMBC could continue to get better while Exploding Rabbit is working on new projects and doing other things.
