I'm 22 and my timezone is GMT + 3.
I'm a programmer and i want to make a single player board game for PC. This will be done in GameMaker: Studio.
The game is still in planning phases, so there has been no work done on it yet except for planning. I don't want to start on it unless we're sure what we're doing and we both like it. Unplanned projects usually get cancelled quickly. It would be good if you have played board games before, so we can discuss what board game elements you like most, so we can start working on these elements first. We will both get 50% of sales and will use sounds from free sound sites such as freesound.org.
I'm expecting the game to be aimed for hardcore players.
Some games i'm inspired by are:

Arkham Horror https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb7UFTc7fYE&list=PL8ALEHXj9Q...
Eldritch Horror https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dl-UuPy3-CE&list=PL8ALEHXj9Q...
Robinson Crusoe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ee21fzRRNdo&list=PL8ALEHXj9Q...
Last Night on Earth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lMNFoNWq48&list=PL1F502960E...
A Touch of Evil https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qu5R9-zVvwg&list=PL7669EDC59...
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLJ9m6roOEw&list=PL5UyaJ4tfE...
Some other games i'm inspired by are Yu-Gi-Oh!, Future Card Buddyfight, Cardfight!! Vanguard and Magic: The Gathering.
The videos are these games played by a let's player. These let's players have many other videos of good board games. The videos introduce the games very well. If you don't know any of those games then i'd recommend at least watching all parts of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.
My favorite board game is Pathfinder, so i'm expecting the game to be mostly like that but without the use of multiple characters, dice rolls and blessing system. Instead of dice rolls there should be more options in the game and the randomness should be done by the cards you draw. I don't like the blessing system because it makes the games short. I want it to be a long game that's very different every time.
You must have Skype for fast communication. PM me your Skype to get started or if you have any other messenger instead you can send me the address to that messenger, so i might download that one, if you don't like Skype.
