    I'm looking for someone who can design a massive role playing game. I have the ideas and basic concepts, all I need is for someone to design the game, design the graphics, sounds, and actions.

    What I have in mind is a role playing game where the world is changed by the actions of the players. The environment can be effected by the players, they can destroy, rebuild, etc. Multiple worlds of the game would also be a plus.

    My budget is $2,000-$5,000.

    Good luck with $5000

    Try $100,000 and that's for starters. Try Kickstarter if the concept is good enough.

    I'd go with at least 200k-300k. With 5000$ you could probably buy a flash game.

    Your budget is too low for this. You are looking at 6 figures and a team of developers over about 6 months time. I know a programmer that charges 200$ an hour so you would have about 2 and 1/2 days of his time. Like someone said it would probably net you a flash game or facebook app from here

    like funkybunker said 5000 will get you no where but if your idea is good you can open a kickstarter project and start getting donations for your project.100k is achiveable with kickstarter ;)

    Your budget is low however you might be able to pick up a contractor from India / Philippines who can develop a RPG starting with pre-made assets http://unity3d.com/asset-store/

    OP wants a -massive- RPG. Just to give you an idea OP, World of Warcraft's development costs
    were approximately $100 million.

    I can't post links here, but google for "indie mmorpg costs" to find an article on how much your
    budget needs to be.

    I'm a programmer by profession, and I can tell you right now (as others have said) that your
    budget is too low.

    for 5k you can buy yourself a trusted partner and friend who can show you the ropes, show you how to learn development the right way. I can tudor you in the video game creation industry. Everything from coding to modeling and mapping out levels, writing storyline elements and animation. I have learned it all, mastered modeling, mapping and logic design (hate coding). If you really want to be serious, you need to be reasonable. 5k will get you some nice 1 on 1 training or a few models and a map made, but to do a whole game, you need multiple disciplines of professional people. Professionals that make more than 5k in one month...

    Quite wrong. I think it is possible to develop a good game with low budget considering the softwares available today. Though, you could probably use some friends.

    Whoever is willing to do this for you for this kind of money, will most def. try to scam you. The cost is way more than that. Maybe you can try it with a FB game and hope (work your way) it gets viral? Not sure about the prices regarding those, but it might be close enough.

    Consider making a java browser game with that budget.
