There is only one week left to back the Village Monsters Kickstarter. Are you ready to join the village?

Have you ever wondered what goes on inside the world of an abandoned video game? What happens to all the NPCs and monsters after their game is powered off for that last time?

Village Monsters is a relaxing life sim set in one such world.

You play the role of someone booting up a forgotten game for the first time in decades only to find that it is nothing like you remember. All those monsters that were once enemies are now peacefully living in a village of their own making and stranger still, they're inviting you to join them.

I've been regularly posting new demos to indieDB since I began this project in January, and I'd love for you to take a peek and see if it interests you!

Once described as a faff about simulator, Village Monsters has found ample inspiration from the likes of Animal Crossing, Mother 3, and Undertale to create a carefree - yet monstrous - village life experience.

Between pursuing hobbies, furnishing your home, talking with whimsical monster villagers, and solving mysteries, there are no shortage of activities to pursue during your time in the village.

The world of Village Monsters may be digital, but that doesn't stop it from feeling alive.

From sunrise to sunset, you'll find a world that changes all around you. Sparrows fly overhead during the day while owls patrol the night. Villagers hang out at home while it it's raining and go shopping for new furniture after it clears.

Village Monsters is a one-person project, and I really need your help to finish making it! Please consider backing the Kickstarter if you're a fan of life simulation games, monsters, or bad jokes!

      Random Number God has been updated to v1.1.0.
      This is an incremental (although not idle) game about defeating randomized robots by rolling dice and playing cards that alter those dice and their effects.
      Other than performance fixes, the game has been rebalanced from the ground up. Now it should progress in a more fluid fashion. An option to reset the game with a significant boost to your power has been added, allowing you to advance further than you could before.
      There is also now an option to significantly speed up battle animations. Once you learn the rules of the game, a battle can easily take <2 min.

      Hey my dudes,
      Me and 4 friends are third year compsci students. Three of us are pretty good at drawing. We are hoping to make a 2d roguelite game with unity during the next few months. We are still brainstorming. At the moment, my idea is to create a card roguelite game:
      First, you would need to choose 2 heroes to enter the dungeon with the goal of finding a treasure. The treasure found gives you extra bonus in later runs. You can choose between mage, gunner, rogue, paladin, warrior and fighter. Each hero has their own unique cards. And there are common cards that every heroes can get(like hearthstone).
      The progression system would be like slay the spire’s. You can choose your own path, but every paths leads to the boss. It would use procedural generation. After defeating an enemy, you get to choose a new card out of the three options. There would be shops, random events, elite enemies, etc
      The combat system is where i need some suggestions on. There would be two piles of deck. One for each hero. I can think of two good combat systems:
      1. Before every enemy encounters, you can choose what cards to use from your deck. Cards not used would not get discarded. Cards are drawn from the deck only if they break or due to special card’s effect. Every card have a durability number. Ones the durability reach zero, the card would break and can no longer be used. Events/enemies can modify the durability of the cards.
      2. Card not used this turn would get discarded. Once the deck is empty, the discard pile gets shuffled and copied to the deck. Card/item effects can increase the number of cards you draw.
      How can I make the game more interesting? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hello, I'm currently searching for a talented and passionate programmer to create a small but great horror game that would take around 3 months to be done.
       
      About the game: The game would be a sci-fi/post-apocalyptic survival horror 3D game with FPS (First person shooter) mechanics and an original setting and story based in a book (which I'm writing) scene, where a group of prisoners are left behind in an abandoned underground facility. It would play similar to Dead Space combined with Penumbra and SCP: Secret Laboratory, with the option of playing solo or multiplayer.
       
      Engine that'd be used to create the game: Unity
       
      About me: I'm a music composer with 4 years of experience and I'm fairly new in this game development world, and I'm currently leading the team that'd be creating this beautiful and horrifying game. I decided that making the book which I'm writing into a game would be really cool, and I got more motivated about doing so some time ago when I got a bunch of expensive Unity assets for a very low price. However, I researched about how to do things right in game development so I reduced the scope of it as much as I could so that's why this game is really based in a scene of the book and not the entire thing (and also that's why it would take 3 months). Also I'm currently learning how to use Unity and how to model things with Blender.
       
      Our team right now consists of: Me (Game Designer, Creator, Music Composer, Writer), 3 3D Modelers, 1 Sound Effect Designer, 1 Concept Artist and 1 Programmer.
       
      Who am I looking for:
      - A programmer that's experienced in C# and with Unity.
       
      Right now the game is very early in its development (GDD is completed and all 3D Items, Music and Sound Effects are completed).
       
      If you are interested in joining, contributing or have questions about the project then let's talk. You can message me in Discord: world_creator#9524

      I've been making music for about 7 years, I have hundreds of releases on soundcloud and bandcamp. Recently I have stepped up my post production game, pouring long hours into EQ and mixing. Most of my music is in a moody, "foggy" piano style with heavy experimentation through pitch shifting, overdubbing, and live recording. I use a spectrogram EQ to manually shape sounds and scoop out noise in Audacity. I am familiar with many general concepts, applying compression, reverb, high and low pass filters, and pretty much all of the effects in Audacity and many of the pitfalls and lessons of live recording for guitar and piano in my home studio. I am familiar with some other programs like ableton and fruity loops but live recording is my strong suit as opposed to composing music in a DAW. I rely heavily on improvisation, recording large amounts of audio and cutting it down and manipulating it in post as well as doing overdubs. I can put out a project of piano music in a month or so up to what I think is a high / acceptable standard that I personally am happy with.

      I am heavily inspired by Akira Yamaoka's work on the Silent Hill series as well as Angelo Badalamenti. I dream of composing music for games or short films, and feel like I'm ready to take on a project like that, as well as being willing to license my already existing music out which I think would be a perfect fit for the right type of horror game or anything with emotional elements.

      I am currently working on another project that will be released in December or on New Years. I will work for a reasonable amount and have done this out of passion for 5+ years because I love doing it. I feel that I have improved enough now to pursue doing something like this.

      Thank you so much to anyone who even bothers to click any of these links, and thank you for your time!

      Other skills: I do all of my own cover art with digital photo editing and subsequently also have about 5 years of experience with that- photography and digital photo manipulation. I can work on marketing materials or art in this way. I play the Piano, Guitar, Synth / String piano etc, and I sing. I have close connections to some other musicians and visual artists. I will be honest if I don't think my music will work for your project or if I'm not sure if I can do something well enough, but I feel comfortable taking on some general audio design as well, including general sound / dialogue recording or noise reduction.
