They are, however, not neccesarily computer games; most of the new game
consoles can access the internet, and thus can have MMO genre games.
MMOGs can enable players to cooperate and compete with each other on

Sure we can talk, what kind of questions do you have. I'm hoping to start one within 2 -3 months or sooner.
Biz, Lets start with the easy questions first.
How soon will you have a Business and Marketing Plan to show?? You say that you are a gamer and have
great ideas. Tell me more about yourself (like education and work experiences)??
Have you projected how much all this will COST??
Since you don't have any experience in this industry, who will give the guidance??
You have little to no
capital available so what are you offering.
This is only the start, LUCKIEST
Usually, you should at least have some knowledge of programming or graphic design before starting a game development company. I have some experience in both programming languages and graphic design, and have built small multiplayer games like Tic Tac Toe over a network. I would be happy to pass any knowledge I have on.

I am interested in starting a MMOG, which will utilize the internet and will enable users to compete against others via mobile phone, pda, or computer etc. The mmog has a distinct and innovative control & animation design mechanism. I have no experience in the video game industry, but I am a gamer, and I have great ideas. I have collected market research reports, received resumes from programmers, game developers, graphic artists, and I do have enough information to create a business plan, but I'm not sure of the effect that it will have on VC/Angels. I need to find angels or vc's who are interested in online developing technologies, and also I need to find some more programmers and game developers. Since I don't have any experience in this industry I need some guidance, but I would also like to partner with a strong management team who knows what they're doing. I have little to no capital available. Is there any advice that anyone can give me, or interested partes?
