Urgently need feedback for game art graphics in thesis

0 posts in this topic

edit: I have gotten an email of interest, thank you so much! Others are however still welcome!:)

 

Hello,

I hope this is the correct place to post this. I'm sorry if it's not.

For my bachelor's thesis I've created all the visual assets of an Android-based smartphone prototype game (sidescroll beat em up-type) while an IT-student programmed it for his thesis.

 

I'm looking for someone within the game development business or someone who's had experience with it previously to take a look at the visual assets only (no need at all to read 40+ pages of thesis-text! laugh.png ) and then answer some shorter questions I have about it. You would have to be ok with being mentioned as an external supervisor in the thesis as well as me most likely quoting your feedback in the text.

 

I would need the feedback by tuesday night the 15th (GMT+2) since I probably have to send it to print the 17th on thursday morning.

 

I've got everything packaged nicely and ready to show:

  • PDF with graphics
  • imgur gallery with .gif of character animations
  • PDF with short questions
    (1-5 questions per asset type eg UI or characers, also contains short text on my process for them)
  • .apk for android if one would like to try the game (1-3 minutes of playtime only)

I would send the dropbox link of the materials through email or give them on skype.

For someone with experience in the industry the process would probably take maybe 1-2 hours if you type your answers in a mail/on skype, but I can also take notes through a skypecall (I don't care if it's the middle of my night, I'll answer for sure, though an appointed time beforehand would help heh).

 

I'm really in a pinch and hope someone could be available for help!

If you feel up to it then please add me on skype or send me a short mail and I'll give you the material.

Thank you for reading this, and I would again be so grateful if someone is up to the task.

As reference on the amount of assets, here's a preview on the PDF.
