Hi,

Sounds quite interesting. How is it coming along?

I couldn't really access the link for some reason. Not sure if it is dead or not?

Also where are those gameplay videos that were coming soon :D ? I would really like to see one.

It's unlikely you will find anybody joining the project if you don't show some screenshot or concept or game design note.

Interesting up to now.
Be sure to add innovative game dynamics, as the market is full of clones already, and "just another clone" from a very small team with very limited resources won't find any luck out there.

I'm a one man team as well... that's why I give you these suggestions: I can go on with my project almost for everything because the idea behind it is innovative enough, nothing similar exists, but I see your game is an RPG (or looks so). So my suggestion is: put something new in it, or it won't cut a good slice of sellings... because the market is saturated by similar stuff.

Ye I know the feeling, I have myself much ready stuff but it's not complete in any way so it's better to not put it in a build... good then, keep it up, I know working alone requires a lot of effort and trust.

Do you think I should keep at it alone or should I be seeking Help?

Depends... can you do all or almost all alone?
From what you wrote I don't think so.
Animation takes a huge amount of time to do it well.
The problem as usual is that the project is too large.
You may thing it's small enough to do alone, but I don't think so.
That's why you need other people to cooperate.
I don't think you can pull this project alone, it would take you 2 years at least.

Hi,
To find people to join,
you need to say what they will get.

will they be payed per hour?

will they be paid per project part?
(for example making a character and get paid for the finished character instead of per hour)

will they get commission?

will they get profit sharing?

Based on that quote I just have a noob question that is a bit off topic.

Is it kind of frowned upon to use animation assets from the asset store in a finished good quality commercial game? Of course I mean some carefully picked out  animations (most likely not free, unless youre very lucky) and well matched to the character. Especially with all the mo-cap stuff available wouldn't it be preferable for some indie studios in some cases?

Thanks for any input.
