    Have an influence as in help develop?
    And this shouldn't be in the games forum.
    I'd be interested, but I need more details.

    shouldnt be in games forum? Its directly linked to game :)

    And yes.. become part of the development directly.

    We are setting up a big website where anybody can sign up to become
    part of the development, comment, vote and so on.. the users will
    control the game direction 100% - win prices/money and points,
    walk the ladder of the development chain and the top will get invited to
    join the development company.

    This is something we are opening up in 2009!

    But I want to see how much interest there is in this here.

    no, not beta testing.

    From start of development to finished development.
    The beginning will be users voting on the Game Genre!
    Yes. I mean the START.
    We will always provide several directions which the users will choose from
    and comment on to influence the direction they want the game to go.

    We dont know... the users will decide through the voting and commenting system.

    Sounds like a cool idea.

    So is this simply having a vote in what direction the game will take (i.e. will character look like A or B) or actual input into it (i.e code, level design etc.)?

    The former sounds like a brilliant piece of marketing - give your customers exactly what they want! The later is also pretty cool.

    We will give more than A - B
    We will give users the chance to be involved at much deeper level if they want by example from users AND/OR smaller level for those who want by just voting.

    We will vote on EVERYTHING from 20 concept art peices to work in progress to finished.

    Functionality.. every single aspect of the game.

    We also have awards and prices for users that get their ideas into the game.
    Big scoring system based on the user activity.

    And whole lot more I cant disclose but Im only seeing if there is much interest here.. so far.. few of you who have answered would be interested.

    This is of course a program where you can be as little and as much involved as you want. We are expecting to have several thousand users and we are
    hoping to create a game that will change history.. not only the way it was made - by users - but also exactly what the users want and have lots and lots of fun while at it.

    Thanks for the reply, thats sound like a really cool idea that could produce an excellent game. Sounds like an extension on open source software, but much better!

    Count me in! :D

    Sounds interesting enough to try. But why do I have a feeling the end of the process will yield Urban Tycoon 2.
