Would you be interested in creating the graphics for a space shooter game?
My son loves playing games...and I wanted to get him involved in creating one.
We're making a 2D shooter game similar in feel to Galaxian. The ships should be alien-looking spaceships though, not bugs, and they should each have 3-4 frames of animation (blinking lights, gas emitting, that sort of thing).
We don't, at the moment, have any artwork, so it's greenfield. We like the Tyrian images that are floating around, but they're too small.
What we'll need:
4 different enemy ship types with 3 health variations (healthy, slight damage, great damage).
Two different explosion sprite sequence (fire just starting, full burning, maybe with bits flying away and gas venting, fading to black)
Two Boss enemy ships
A player ship sprite, with side-ship sprites
5 different laser bullets
2 different rockets, one stronger than the other
sprites that we can attach below the player to indicate that we have rockets onboard
3 different power ups: extra ships for either side of the player, heal, add rocket ammunition
We'll be zooming through space, so a background that can be tiled (or use parallax effects) to indicate motion would be best.
Other needs will show up in time, but that will get us started.
He and I are putting together a business plan (to present to his mother, our investor), so we're interested in seeing portfolios or maybe already released games.
As I don't expect this game to be hugely successful, we must keep our costs low. If your quote for something like this comes in over the low hundreds, this probably isn't the project for you.
Be aware this project is advertised elsewhere too.

I am recent graduate in Game Design from UAT in Arizona. I am currently working in the industry and feel that I would make a good candidate for a real world gaming experience for your son. Thank you for your time.
