You can also write the full proposal and then find a mentor, maybe it's
easier that way around.
Surely, I'll look forward to it. Thank you for your help.

Hi Pranan, in KDE we work in teams, so please take this discussion to KDE Games. That doesn't mean that your mentor *must* be part of the KDE Games team, but you will need buy-in from the team, because the team as a whole takes care of the whole suit of games. Needing a mentor isn't about how good your coding skills are -- it's about who are the experts you might need to consult about a particular  problem? How is your code fitting into the team's coding style? Is the way you are managing your project on the right track? Even expert coders do better with the feedback of the team and particular experts. 

Even our coding stars submit their patches and new bits of code for review, and our codebase is the better for rigorous review.

Please embed yourself into the KDE Games team and start helping them with fixing some bugs, triaging bug reports, or whatever else they might ask of you. Those are the folks who will decide whether or not they want to work with you, so work with them now.

All the best,
