Hmm, I'm really tempted by this. What sort of turnaround time were you looking for?

This sounds like a fun project though, so I'd just like to register my interest.

I'd also like to register my interest, assuming i'm not too late ;-;/.

I checked out some of the links you posted and had a go on the demo, and it looks like it'll be a fun game. :3

I'm confident in my programming, but i technically haven't made anything quite like this before, so id like a few days to figure out what's actually involved before id be able to commit to being able to deliver what you want in the timescale provided. lol

As far as i can tell, you're looking something like the battle system in Advance wars, only isometric, right? and with some extra bells and whistles. :p

Though i didn't really understand what you meant by elements, makes me think magic but given the ww2 context... lol

I'm in largely the same boat since I'm pretty new at both ren'py and python. I'm confident in my battle systems though, and I think I've learned enough ren'py for this to be pretty straightforward. My worries are just along the lines that:
  • Paid position. I'm mostly interested in doing this because it sounds extremely fun, so I don't really have an amount I'd want to charge. Especially because doing something like setting an hourly rate would encourage me to try and keep the amount of time I work on it low to keep things reasonable for the client, when this is the sort of thing I'd normally prefer to tinker with well into the night.
  • Kind of juggling half a dozen things at once at the moment. I probably wouldn't be able to work more than a day or two per week on it until June, which might end up cutting things a little fine schedule-wise, which is a concern I'd rather not push on your project.
But I'd like to reiterate that I think this would be enormously fun and I'd still like to do it. The ideal for me is basically to be able to just create a really awesome battle system for a game that largely already exists, already has assets created etc. because I can just code and I'd be able to see it in a game without the miserable trying-to-prepare-the-best-art-assets-I-can phase. I love doing this kind of stuff.

Game looks pretty good, looking forward to the release.

Unfortunately can't really offer my services as I am not much of a python programmer (prefer c++) but definitely looking forward to seeing what you do with this.

Did you ever get someone for this?
I assume no reply means its not me. lol but im still kindof interested in how the project is going.
