Hello! I am Plane, I am a fellow developer. I have seen lots of people’s work and it is very fascinating. I am making a video game for people to play. I am looking for some deva that can help me out, I will be paying game revenue to the employees. I will play like a regular job but I will pay it off once we get game revenue. I cannot pay monthly because I am not very rich, so I need as much help as i can.

I am so sorry, but we need to protect this space from what killed other spaces:
Every developer knows these kind of offers. Most of us took some of them - may it have been as friends asked us to, may it have been because we were young and naive.
So please correct me if I am wrong:

If you were a fellow developer, you would ask for specific technology/expertise and would probably not refer to fellow devs as employees, but maybe potential partners. If you had explored this platform at least a little bit prior to creating an account and posting this, you would have also probably noticed that this should -if at all- be a listing.
So please, if you are one of those people trying to get free labor, leave us at least this space.

Sorry if you think that, I am not trying to get free labor, I am seriously very poor and I’m in a bad state of money. I just want to do this for fun, but most people want to do it if they get money, so that is all I can offer them.

Ok. Fair enough. Then tell us a little bit about it. What platform are you tageting? What tech are you using? How will revenue be generated? Obviously, you don't have to share your idea, just enough to give people a chance to see if they are interested.

Well for now it will be for PC. I don’t know what you mean by tech but it will be Javascript. The revenue will be generated on shop items that will benefit the players. It will be a 2D shooter type of game, for now. It has power ups and abilities you start off with and branch off of.

So I assume you write JavaScript, then? How do you usually run that on PC?

I would use a batch file to start it up and see if it works, then I would send the files to a stronger PC which no one will use. I am not expecting millions of players so I only will include 5TB to use

What the fuck is this guy talking about? Can we not have these kinds of posts on dev.to? It needs to stay sacred.

Yeah. Didn't know what to say anymore. I think OP is trolling at this point.
