So, I have designed a video game. As in, I have written the design spec and done some storyboards and concept art and such. I am not a programmer.
I am an outsider to the industry. I know a few people who do video game work, so of course I'll talk to them about it. But I don't expect it to be a good fit with their companies so it will have to find a home somewhere else.
Is this a fool's errand? Video game makers aren't sitting around waiting for some unknown guy to knock on their door with a game design. I imagine the modern video game market is a lot like the modern feature film market, which is more or less outsider-proof.
People in the know, help me out here. My game is awesome and I really want to see it developed.
