      I am looking for team members to potentially collaborate on the development of various game projects as well as assistant applications potentially, tabletop games for example.  At the moment, I am doing the entire production on my own, which as a result is incredibly slow.  Any contributions will of course be credited, and as far as experience or skills, if you're confident that you can accomplish the tasks, then I'm more than willing to allow you to try.
      The biggest need at the moment is some art skills.  I 'can' draw, but not well, which means that if I'm going for positive asthetics, that it's going to take all year.  In my 2D games, and 3D games, art has been the one hold up.  I'm currently trying to work around the art issue, using placeholders and the likes, but the result is that no matter how far I take the game in concept, it's still lightyears from completion.  The more I accomplish, the more art assets will be needed to utilize it.  I intend to work on my own skills still in this department, but that being said, people who just want to get their art into a product, or people who want to expand their portfolio, are more than welcome to take over the production of art assets.  If you only have experience in pixel art, that's fine, I have a pixel art project on-going.  If you only 3D model, that's fine too, I've had some success in concept art and the likes, and helpful friends as well. Are you more the writing type?  Me too, we can bounce ideas back and forth, help solidify the storyline and concepts as we go on into the development process. Business minded?  I'd love to learn more by seeing how you work.
      I will say that, while I am working to advance my skills in all facets of game development, though my primary focus is programming, that being said I will always welcome a comrade, or ally.  Your position as a team member will not be nullified if I become able to fulfill the role.  The fact of the matter is, a team can accomplish more.  I do work a LOT on these projects, but I do understand that if you are joining this team, you aren't doing so for the wealth, meaning you likely have responsibilities elsewhere.  So, do not hesitate to contact me. If you are a beginner, looking to learn by practice, then you are welcome to come as well. We will utilize the best suited works for any development done, but it will always be merit based, meaning that whether you're a beginner that just joined, or me, if yours is more suited to the situation, yours will be used, and you will be credited for it.  Students, hobbyists, or professionals, all welcome.  If you're a professional though, I'm going to wonder why you are joining, but you are still welcome to join!
      Samples are always welcome, but if you don't have any, or don't know what to submit to the diversity of my product description, then just contact me, elaborate on what you do, and I'll give you a subject.  One that will not be used unless you join the team, of that you have my word.

      Check out our Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/FlickFootball3D/
      Flick Football 3D is a turn based football game inspired by the table top classic 'Subbuteo'.
      The game is currently in very early Alpha development. There is still a lot to be done before the first proper release but I have decided to release this playable version to get as much feedback as possible.
      The only game mode currently available in this release is the 'Practice Mode' which gives you control of both teams. Either play against yourself to get used to how the game works or play against friends and family on the same computer!
      Planned Future Features Include:
      -Take control of your own custom team in the single player campaign.
      -Play in online leagues and tournaments against other players in the multiplayer mode.
      -Fully customisable stadiums to make you stand out from the rest of the players.
      -Improve your players stats and skills by playing matches and setting up training sessions.
      Flick Football 3D is available for Windows, Mac and Browser.
      Thank you for viewing my game, all feedback is greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at; BillyGDev@outlook.com
      'Flick Football 3D' is also the development name for the game and I haven't yet decided what the full release will be called, so if you have any ideas please drop me a message!

      It is a combination of fundamental RPG elements and challenging, session-based MOBA elements. Having features such as creating your unique build, customizing your outfit and preparing synergic team compositions with friends, players can brave dangerous adventures or merciless arena fights against deadly creatures and skilled players alike.

      This time with no grinding and no pay to win features.

      We're still looking for:
      1) 3D Character Artist
      2) 3D Environment Artist
      3) Animator
      4) Sound Designer
      5) VFX Artist

Unity iphone commercial dev options for starters

hi all,

as I quickly searched , to be able so start writing commercial games for Appstore , the options seem

1. buying a MAC and developing with Xcode and native IOS SDK with Objective C on that
2. using an IOS supporting engine/sdk on Windows such as Unity, UDK etc...

I dont have prior MAC/XCode/Objective C experience + I know C++/C#(mentining c# for unity)
Also Unity seems a mature engine for mobile/ios games.

Generally , if you compared two , what would you say , what would you suggest for me ?

Besides what other engines or options are available for Iphone development ?

thanks in advance

Your expenses will be the following:

1. Buying a Mac (even with Unity/UDK, you NEED a Mac to push the game onto the App store.
2. iOS dev membership. This is $99
3. Any Engine Licenses ($400 for Unity iOS, $3000 UnityPro + iOS Pro, $99 iTorque 2D, $99 + Royalties for UDK)

If you have a good friend with a Mac, you could probably ask to use his/her Mac to upload the App to the store. That will leave you more money for other expenses and you can develop on a Windows machine.

As for learning Objective C, it's pretty easy. The documentation is fine and it's very similar to C++. Once you know one language, you know them all. It's just a matter of practice.

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions just ask.

EDIT: What I would do is use the Unity/UDK testing tools to emulate the device on your PC and create your app. This will save you having to buy a Mac until you finish the bulk of your project. You can use the "demo" to attract additional developers, investors, crowdfunding, etc.

Thanks a lot for the reply ,

Regarding engines/sdks , as I generally looked , (except UDK ) 3 of them catch the eye : unity torque & shiva

I havent yet downloaded and tried them but for the time being :

- for itorque2d , you can also have source code , 100 usd with many features a good editor and plugins/addons ( dev with torquescript )
- for unity , 400 usd with many features ( dev with c# )
- for shiva , 169 euros , for iphone/android/Windows/MAC/PC/Web , many features a good editor and plugins/addons ( dev with c++ or lua )

Currently Shiva and Itorque2d seemes the best options to me as I am targeting a 2D game

but also I am considering the option of producing a 2d shooter game with 3d assets/rendering , for this one itorque2d fails)

What would you suggest regarding engine selection ?

I've never really heard of Shiva or even used it, so I can't give you an honest recommendation between iTorque and Shiva; however, from experience, I've always enjoyed Torque's support over the years.

By the way, Unity is great for a 2D game with 3D assets as there is a tutorial/documentation on such.

Thanks a lot for your comments

For me a world editor and emulating on Windows are important , which one would you suggest iTorque or Unity ?

Mosync is another option if you want cross platform support. Also it enables you to develop using your current c\c++ skills.
