I'm currently looking for some avid artists an developers to help join me in creating the first Star Wars adventure game. This project will play out like the sam & max episodic series. The game is called 'Star Wars: Jax Stories'. Each episode progresses the story with a different case, all connected in some devious way.

'You control of the character 'Shaden Jax', the best PI on planet Coruscant. Well, at least he thinks he's the best. Little does he know that small clues laid along his long journey of suspense and mystery will uncover a dark Sith secret.
The first episode is titled 'Mystery of the Stone Cold Twi'lek'. In this episode Shaden is hired by a female Twi'lek by the name of Nali Zem. At her disposable she requests you to investigate her sister's untimely demise. As Shaden investigates, he soon finds out that things are going to get worse.
Our goal is to create a episodic series with 2 hours playtime each. As short as they may seem, we hope to be able to satisfy those who love classic adventure games and those who want a perfected episodic gameplan.'
Right now I'm almost done writing out the script for the first episode. After i'm done, we'll begin production.
At the moment, the only visual element I have is the logo.
The game will play out like the lucasarts game 'Full Throttle' where the left mouse button moves the character and the right click brings up the actions wheel which displays various ways to interact.
I also envision cut scenes to be similar to Gabriel Knight, where the action is done through the 2d background and sprites, plus comic book box cells with illustrated animated artwork.
Besides the basic visual features, I want to incorporate mini games like gun fights, car chases, etc.
So to help this innovative dream come true, I'm going to need the help of others.
At the moment these are the following areas that I need filled in:
1-3 Conceptual Artists: Considerable experience here, I need concepts for character designs, weapons, basic environment layouts, objects.
1-2 Graphic Artists: I need graphic designers to create promotional artwork such as posters, and character artwork (Artwork placed with character bios).
1 GUI Artist: A pixel artist who can draw out gui layouts that can be cut up and used for the gui programmer.
1 GUI Programmer: I need the programmer to incorporate the interaction wheel various minigames.
1-2 Background Artists: Preferably digital artists with considerable experience to create 640x400 background art.
1-2 Animators: To start things off I'll need the main character created into sprite form and animated for movement.
1 Sound Effects: Someone who is friendly with star wars sound effects that can supply quality audio to be used in-game.
