I'd also recommend having a portfolio so you can show these developers what you can do, to get them interested and make you appear more professional.

Sure, you can become a game designer. Get a college degree, make a portfolio, get a job in the game industry, work hard, well, and cooperatively for a number of years.
Read FAQs 3, 7, 12, 14, 69, 24, 27, and 4.

I assume he won't offer you real money. ("Royalties after it sells" is nothing -- you'll never see a penny.)
Decide beforehand if you want to do it for no money or not. Know why you're willing to do it, if you're willing to do it.
If he doesn't have a collaboration agreement that clarifies ownership of the game and its assets, don't work with him. http://www.sloperama.com/advice/article58.htm

Oh wait. You're 16? You'll need a parent to sign the agreement.

You have to negotiate price with your prospective client/employer.

If he offered you a penny, would you be happy or insulted?
If he offered you ten dollars, would you think that was enough?
YOU HAVE TO DECIDE THIS YOURSELF. You're a minor and an amateur. Professional prices don't apply.
