After nearly 2 months and 2 games nearly complete I can tell you that this market is a bit too infant for a ‘just manager’. While marketing helps it’s not mandatory to succeed and some skill in art or as3 programming is very helpful, as serious people will not work on % basis and much else equity with anyone who they can live without. This can of course be skipped if you are already committed and have enough capital to go to paying people for their work and taking all risk yourself. For a strict managerial role you can expect 5-15% of game revenue if your good at negotiation and finding the right people. Not worth the work needed to start and manage a project like that at all, unless you are thinking very long term and there is no way of learning art or programming AND you are willing to lose money for some time (like a year or two).
So think carefully what you can bring to the table and how much that adds to the final product. I settled for doing art and am glad I took that route. If you got any questions feel free to ask.

I was meaning to even get in touch with you for some tips…thanks for your comment I really appreciate your input bro, i will get in touch soon!

I have a couple of questions, could you maybe answer them?

- Could you expand a bit on the “fair share in the game development thing” a bit? Can you, for example, list some of your accomplishments in this field?
- What platform do you wish to (initially) target? Flash/android/ios/PC? This is a pretty important question for the programmer crowd (like me :-) )
- A bit related to the first question: When you say “helping with whatever I can”, what are your fields of expertise you can help in?

That’s it for now :-) . Thanks in advance for your reply!

forgot to mention the games:

Rise of the Aliens – facebook
Rise of the Aliens – Android
Hot Balloon Saga – Kongregate

I have published two pc games and one android; one was on facebook and one on kongregate and the other one on android which was the facebook version that was made for mobile.

Then for a start I would love to publish the game on kongregate using their APIs.
As for what i can help out with, story line and types of characters and environments to use in the game. I’m not an artist or graphics designer but i know what i want with a character.

Please feel free to comment back if you have any questions.

Ok Well, I have had my fair share in the game development thing but haven’t done much due to lack of experience but now im back with full force and dedication to make this work.

I am looking for a few talented individuals to join my team to make great awesome games and earn money together.

WHAT WE NEED:

Story Writer (I can do this too but need someone with more knowledge and experience)
Programmer
Graphics designer/Artist
Animator

I will love to start with a small and simple game together then if everything goes fine enough then we start with a sequel with more improvements if not we start all over again and learn from our mistakes.

Then from there our next big project will be to make a game that will get noticed and can bring bigger earnings.

So from the success of our previous 2 or 3 games we would setup a company, split equity, get funding if necessary, create our own network, get our own virtual currency, run contests amongst our gamers but until that point, we will just be making addictive fun games under one banner doing what we love.

WHAT I WANT:

I want people who get things done when they say they will do it.
I want people who will not be easily discouraged by small bumps and difficulties
I want people who dream of making great games they would like to play themselves.
I want people who are serious and committed and willing to take that extra step in innovation.

MY CONTRIBUTION:

Well, I am an affiliate marketer and I will be doing the marketing/promotion for the game, game ideas (i have a bunch), project management and helping with whatever I can.

So if you are interested or have any questions, feel free to comment below or PM me.

Thanks
