      Hi all,
      A small team are currently undertaking a fairly large game project involving multi-playing, taming and other complex game mechanisms.
      We are looking for someone who is experienced in programming a wide range of mechanisms, more information is on our discord server. It is also a learning experience and we wouldn't expect you to know how to do everything we wanted, but just ask that you would be willing to learn how to.
      If you are interested in joining the (rather long term project) just message me and i'll add you on discord.
      Thanks for your time,

      I'm a formally trained composer (doctorate from Michigan State) who writes what most people would call avant-garde concert music. I love weird abstract projects, and I would like to work with somebody making a weird, abstract, artsy game. 
      You can find more about me and my music on my site. I have worked with acoustic and electronic sounds, including some procedurally generated and interactive computer music. 
      In particular, I would like to work on a project that lets me use Fmod to prepare an adaptive score for a game built on Unity or Unreal. I've been a music professor and would like to get experience working in this medium so that I can be a better mentor for my students. Send me a DM or email <davidjohnmacdonald@gmail.com> if you would like to discuss working on a project together.

      Name: One Level: Stickman Jailbreak
      Price: Free
      Developer: RTU Studio
      Platform: Android
      Language: C# (Unity3D)
      Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.RTU.OneLevel
      I want to show you my game! "One level: Stickman Jailbreak" is a puzzle game with unusual gameplay where you must help the character to escape from prison. You just need to take the key and get out alive. The game has only one level, and there are many ways to complete it. Not everything is as simple as it might seem at first glance, so there are clues in the game.
      Short description:
      Nobody escapes from here!
      Tommy got into trouble again! Our hero is behind bars. But he's not going to stay in jail for a long time and he decides to escape. Tommy steals a key and gets out of the jail cell. But our friend doesn't go free: Tommy suddenly finds himself in the same room from which he just escaped! The conditions for escaping change every time. In order to go free Tommy will have to solve logical puzzles and you can help him in this!
      At first it will be easy, but the tension will increase, and the tasks will become more complicated with each level. You should use your brain for all 100%, but if your skill is not enough, you can use a hint or ask for help from friends!
      You can solve the puzzles alone or with your friends and spend time well!
      - 48 unique levels;
      - the game is translated into 10 languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean;
      - the function of "help from friend";
      - hints;
      - instructions.

      Hello forum,
      I have some decent amount of experience in Unity making games for Software Engineering projects in college, these were very specific projects however and I still am fairly new to building games. I wanted to make a game that uses the shadows of objects for collision detecting (i.e. shooting a gun at a characters shadow causes that character damage. What is the best engine to do this in (game will be 3D), and does anyone have any advice on how to approach this concept? I consider myself fairly experienced in programming, but game dev is just an entirely different beast.

      Hey all,
      I've been slowly working on my game called AotW for a while now.  I have come to the conclusions that it would be nice to cooperate with 1 or 2 others to help finish it.  Ive been trying to keep my GDD up to date with my ideas and development so that would give a better overview of the game when the time comes.  Currently I have a basic skeleton of the RPG elements needed but everything can still be discussed and talked about and we can transform my idea to something the group likes.
      The premise of the game is a Diablo-like procedurally generated map with RPG elements that include sockets, inventory, classes, abilities, crafting, loot, items, sockets, and enchanting.  This will be done in a 2D iso view as I can't do 3D art and I enjoy 2D games a lot.
      I don't plan on releasing this as this is more of a hobby project for me and I have a full-time job.  Though I'd like to start putting more hours into development and having others definitely will be motivation.  I also want to be able to say I have finally "finished" a game idea to some degree.  If the time comes and we want to release it, then we can go ahead and do so but that's not my purpose or plan.

Unity my first rpg

ok so Im in my last year of high school and I want to go into a career of game development. So i figure i should start getting some experience making games. I can program in java script and have made about 5 standard games using Unity. Now I really want to make an rpg because its my favorite genre. the only thing is Im wondering if unity is the best way to go about it.

I just want it to be a simple 2d rpg. Ive made 2d games on Unity but I'm wondering if It would just be better to use game maker or game salad or one of those game engines. Ill probably learn more programing from unity but I think it'll be easier to use software like rpg maker or sphere.
Ill will be working with two other people with similar experience.

any advice from people who have experience making indie games would be great thanks

If you're trying to get more experienced regarding programming. I would recommend C - it's a great language. You can combine it with different engines or frameworks (SDL is great).

What specific field in game development are you interested in? If it's programming, Unity is probably fine. But you might think about learning the other languages it supports as well as Javascript. You could also find another engine that lets you do some more in-depth programming rather than just scripting. If you go this route, stay away from C and C++ for a while. Other languages will be far more productive for you early on.

If you are hoping to go into design more than programming, Unity is still probably a good idea. Game maker might be ok as well. Overall, it sounds like you're off to a great start. It will be far more important that you have finished games under your belt than what specific tools and technologies you've used.

if RPG Maker has the features you need then go for it, Making an RPG will take alot of time anyway so there is no point in making things harder for yourself than necessary.

If you want to learn lower level programming i'd recommend making something smaller.
RPGs tend to be quite heavy on high level logic which is insanely painful to do with a low level language (If you do write a RPG in C or C++ i'd highly recommend adding atleast basic scripting support for things like NPCs, Quests, etc as hardcoding those things will make things rather annoying in the long run) Edited by SimonForsman

I'm also interested in making a 2D RPG, but I'm having some trouble following tutorials on C#. Once I started making classes and methods I just got totally lost. I have basically no previous programming exp besides a little Visual Basic. If I told you that the only reason I want to learn how to code is because I want to do a solo project, would I be better off using something like RPG Maker? I'm more of a writer/idea man... write the story, come up with the gameplay features and level designs-- that sort of stuff. The coding is interesting, but it's quite daunting to me. I'm also wondering if a game made in RPG Maker can be converted to something like XNA? My current goal is to finish a 2D RPG and make it commercial, going to PC and Xbox Live Indie Games.

Rather than post a new thread, I saw this and thought I'd share my concerns. Thanks for any help.
