I would be insanely happy to help in any way I can, and being an IB student, score some CAS hours on the side. (can't post links, if you care, google "creativity, action, service". It isn't that interesting)

I'm just beginning to learn the art of music production, and am progressing pretty quickly, in my own opinion at least. I'm assuming you have some form of quality control going on, so I might not be too much help there just yet. Maybe I can do something by the end of the year. I have been playing the bass for about 4 years now, and have been looking for an excuse to get some recording gear.

What I can do however, is write ridiculously over-complicated English. I realize that a pretty much entirely procedurally generated game won't be too text heavy, but if you need a 500 word description of a body part or something, I'm your guy.

I'm also a native Finnish speaker, so if you need a translation I'd be happy to help.

Again, my limited skill set probably won't be of much use here, but in case you find some use for me I would love to be a part of this project. I can try my hand at anything related to sound and/or language.

Welcome Rargh!

Having an IB program in my school, and being partially enrolled in it myself, I know what you mean by CAS. Music is always a great skill. I'm sure Doggit would appreciate having you to help out, as well as all the other new additions recently. In case there ever seems like a lack of structure with tasks, you can aleays PM me for help.

Eloquent descriptions will always be useful, and I can recall several instances in my work on the Strategy Mode where I needed some descriptions after draining myself of them, but then again Ill have to get back to you on that.

Dont worry about any limitations, I'm sure you will be a great help to the team!

Welcome!

It sounds as if both you and I have similar skill sets, and I hadn't thought to use any writing skills for descriptions of body parts or other game aspects. It would be great for us to work together on any sections of writing needed for the game if ~sciocont or NickTheNick need anything.

As for music, there are quite a number of us working on it now (Doggit's in charge, so private message him if you need something to do). The microbe stage music is probably complete, although if you compose something good I don't see a reason why we shouldn't add it. I'm currently working on some themes for environments in the organism stage (forests, mountains, ice wastes, etc.), so I suggest you start there.

Welcome! I'm also a connoisseur of verbosity, although I tend to be a bit laconic while writing welcome posts. It's good to have you here.

Wow, great reception guys, thanks :D.

I sent doggit a PM, I'll see what he gives me, and based on your guys posts I should apparently start flexing my linguistic muscles a tiny bit more in order to keep up. I also noticed that you guys like Douglas Adams, I'm getting more and more excited about this every minute!

If you haven't already, read these and you'll be even more excited. These two wiki pages alone proved to me this would be the best game imaginable and convinced me to sign up.

(On a side note, I'm very excited about it. )
