Not sure if there is anyone out there in or closely related to the game industry, but I have a question.
How does one put forth an idea for any games that they have? I'm sure that day in, day out they are inundated with countless upon countless suggestions on the next "Big thing!". What does one have to present and where does one send it, to actually be taken seriously?
I will admit, I do have an idea. I'm currently working on it and am in no way ready to submit it yet (I figure I have about 3 months worth of work just to get the back story and pseudo mechanics down pat), but would love to know in advance who I would have to talk to and how to protect myself from having my idea lifted.
I've flown this by quite a few people (though not nearly enough), and they seemed fairly responsive to it, but ultimately it doesn't amount to anything until you have something to present in a relatively whole form.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I'm not looking for anyone to do the work for me, but rather just to point me in the right direction.
The reason why I'm asking here? We seem to have quite a few people here with a passion for gaming as well as people that are quite knowledgable as to the inner workings of a lot of these companies that produce these games.
