Hows about this idea?

First of all, I'm flabbergasted that Growsim is making into the top 1000 on IndieDB--I think it even hit 300ish at one point.  Seriously?  You guys are bad-ass.

Secondly, I think I'm going to build a whole new Growsim from the ground up and use as much original content as possible.

So here's my thoughts (and wishlist) if you wanna get in on the action:

I need graphics.  Lots o' graphics.  Pictures of seeds, saplings, plants, buckets, medium, nutrients, watering devices, lights, and all sorts of grow-related stuff.

In return, I'll include you in the credits (make sure you note how you want to your name to appear) and I'll send you the cheat sheet for the new version when it's done (which means I'll need your e-mail, too).

I DO NOT have any sort of time-table for this project; I could bore you with all the madness I have to deal with on a day-to-day basis, but suffice to say that I can only dedicate a wee bit o' time to Growsim out of my schedule.  However, I will get it done--barring the apocalypse, of course.

What do you peoples think?  Any interest?

Growsim Update: 7/15/14


Over the next few months (probably longer), I'll be working on some tweaks, updates, and other content to create a new version of Growsim.  It won't be a sequel, really, but more like a expansion pack with some improved in-game resources and mechanics.

The cheat sheet will be available for download shortly again.  I am looking for a reputable and easy-to-use digital goods merchant without exorbitant fees.  The cheat sheet will be $1, as usual, and any funds are going towards a new Growsim and related marketing and listing fees.

Now is the time to let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas to improve the existing game; new systems and mechanics are much lower priority than improvements to the existing game.  New content and concepts are welcome.

Stay tuned!
