Two OC alumni, James Prather (Computer Science, 2006) and Robert Nix (Computer Science, 2006), have decided to create a start up company.  A third Alum, Wes Baucum (Computer Science, 2007) is also helping. The company is called Scarlet Dragon Entertainment, LLC, and its main product will be a multiplayer online video game.  Using a tested and very successful and lucrative revenue system of providing a free game with purchasable in-game items, we will be providing the game to a relatively niche market by utilizing the web browser as its platform.  We have been testing a version of the game for the last four years and have gathered significant experience in creating and sustaining a browser-based multiplayer video game with over 20,000 players having played the game at one time or another during the last four years.  All previous work on the game has been done in our spare time since we have full time jobs.  This summer we have decided to seek serious angel funding around $400,000 to allow us to work on it full time.  We're taking all that we've learned and applying it in reshaping the game and taking it to a professional level.  We have a business plan and a project time-line with major milestones and goals.  We are managing to stay on schedule thus far thanks to the many evening and weekend hours we've been putting into it.  Being relatively recent graduates, the problem is that we don't know anyone who can invest this much capital into our company.  We are very passionate and very serious about making an amazing product and only need help to get it off of the ground.  We would be very happy to talk with anyone interested who would like to help fellow alumni.  We can be reached via e-mail at or via phone at 817-456-5100. We live in Dallas, TX, so if anyone interested is within a few hours drive (including the OKC/Edmond area) we'll drive to meet you.
