I have experience with unity and C# script, I have also purchased the Google Developing Console to upload games to the play store. The problem I have faced is how much work and how tedious it is to complete a game on your own. So if anyone wants to partner up on a simple 2D mobile game email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you who are into puzzles, pixel arts and family stories, here is a game we started with my little brother: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/755210943/kingscape-an-indie-game-with-odd-characters Kingscape sets up a lonely character, the king's son, who invents off the wall adventures with numerous imaginary foes including but not limited to: cartoonish mad ducks, perverted zombies, bloodthirsty sales reps, explosive pigs. Your job is to defeat them all. We're looking for positive criticism, feedback, toughts and support from people who enjoy the game pitch. Feel free to tell us what it evokes for you! Cheers, Hugo Loi

We have a fun and talented team working on an ambitious project, but we need help in creating 3D assets. We need people with experience, comfortable with defining streamlined workflows and producing work in a quick pace.
We also need someone to help bring our ideas to life in 2d concepts first to better improve our workflow in creating the 3D scenes.

The game takes place in a world almost submerged by water, where all the land that is left are small islands, where the remains of the human race try to survive after the cataclysm known as the Seven Tides.
You play the story of Jon Riley, a young boy living in the Island of Chelonii, in the Eastern Kingdom of Khalandrie. After a visit from an old mysterious acquaintance, his grandfather, the only relative Jon has mysteriously disappears and Jon embarks on a quest to find what happened to him, while discovering the truth about himself, and the underlying mystery of the Island.
For a full description of the game check out The Game page. (user: seventides pass: indie)
The game will be mainly feed from the traditional mechanics of adventure games popular in the 90’s with games like The Broken Sword, Monkey Island, The Longest Journey, Full Throttle, The Dig etc.
It also introduces some RPG elements that promote exploration in order to immerse the player deeper in the world. The main driver of the gameplay experience is going to be the story as it's traditional in this genre of games.
The Art Style
Currently the adopted art style is a flat shaded, low poly style. You can see some examples below and the full gallery here (user: seventides pass: indie). Please not all of the screens are work in progress as we are working in iterations to move faster.
We are lucky to have an amazing musician and talented producer in the team that is composing amazing musical scores for the game. If you want to hear some music samples get in touch!
The game is being developed in Unity 5 in 3D low poly flat shade style. We are currently using the following main tools:
Unity 5 - Game engine Dialog System - Dialog System for non linear interactive dialog databases Adventure Creator - State machine for the traditional adventure game workflows FMOD - Sound Engine Blender - 3D Modelling Sculptris - 3D Char sculpting Slack - Communication Trello - Task Management Our Trello Board!
We are a team mostly composed by professionals in our areas but new in applying our skills in game development.
Game Designer/Project Lead - Background in Computer Science and working professionally as the technical director of a leading web development agency in Sydney. Duarte brings maturity in project management methodologies and technical leading. An obsessive adventure game player and very seasoned technologist, Duarte is the founder of the project.

Hi guys, I'm trying to make a crossword puzzle game for practice.
Sorry but I've no idea on where to start.
It should be basic game where the user must enter the word in the correct place and nothing else. (I am sure you know how to play crosswords!)
I have to export it to Android and (if possible) to iOS.
What engine would I want use?
I thought to use Unity in order to develop it but I'm not very good with it (and, honestly, I don't like it that much)
How is Unreal Engine 4 with Basic 2D Games like this one? If I could use UE4 it would be better because I know more C++ than C#.
I also thought about making this app with a "basic" IDE such as Android Studio (and) xCode but I would have to do the work twice and I want to avoid that if possible.
Does anyone know if there is a library or something useful for making crossword games?
Thank you very much for the answers and have a nice day!
I apologize for the bad English but I'm not American/English.
