I got an idea a while ago to make a Figure game kind of like Dungeon Dice Monsters only it would be fun it would feature figures from Magic The Gathering, Yugioh, Chrono Trigger and characters from various video games.
I hope one day I can make a game like this and make a profit of course featuring only one of the topics Preferably Chrono Trigger if anyone as any interest in the game please email me at Duelist_99@hotmail.com
if there are any game makers out there that can help me make games on the computer for PC only please email me bye.

Apparently there is something that people, presumably smart people, just aren't getting, so let me take my first turn as the "Administrative Heavy". This is a site for the discussion of board games, not computer games. If you'd like to discuss that topic, we're happy to have you. If not, I'll go ahead and delete your post, if you don't mind...

As a universal piece of advice, designing games with a hope of making money is a horrible way to get started. Just design something that's fun to play and that you enjoy. If you produce something great, then you can think about marketing it. But if it's only the $ you're thinking about, you will almost certainly end up disappointed, as publishing a board game OR a computer game is very, very difficult.

Best of luck with your project,

Jeff

As Jeff says, money is hard to make in the board games industry; as far as wanting to do something based on Magic licenses, I very much doubt you'll have any luck getting Wizards' approval. Better to design a good game with a non-proprietary theme and worry about what theme would enhance it later!

Best wishes,

He can delete your post because he's an administrator here. Posts about videogame creation are almost automatically deleted. We used to write long replies about how the site is for board and card games, but the forums would rapidly fill up with such replies.

I honestly wish you great luck and success getting a job at Wizards of the Coast. To improve your odds of getting a job there -- and I'm not being critical, this is honest advice -- I suggest you work on improving your grammar and punctuation. While WOTC generally doesn't require a college degree, they do expect a certain level of professionalism. Large corporations will rarely hire people with poor writing skills no matter how good their ideas are.

And yes, this site is a fine place to discuss card games. Your first post here was unclear, with your comment "if there are any game makers out there that can help me make games on the computer for PC only please email me" -- you can see how someone might think you're here for videogame advice, right?
