      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,
      Alexia

      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
       
      Hello!
      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!
       
      Description:
      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!
       
      Features: 
      Features:
      - 48 unique levels;
      - the game is translated into 10 languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean;

      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.

Quick question.

As .net Core is now open source cross platform, i was wondering if there is, or in the works a game engine that will utilize this.  
As far as i know Unity isn't going to buy stick with there mono implementation.  Has anyone heard anything different?  Or know of a .net core engine out there?

I dont think that there will be something like a C# core game engine arround so long because there are other well established projects like OpenTK or Mono Game as continious port for XNA out there, also C# even if its source is available is too slow and too limitted for a high scaling game engine.

 

As an example, I manage whole memory allocation/disallocation by myselfe in my C++ game engine and do other things with the memory like saving parts of RAM to disk in savegames. I think to achieve this in C# it would take a whole lot of hacks to the GC and memory model that may casue the engine to be unstable.

 

That is not a reason to not support C# because it is a great coding language at least for tools so I have provided any bindings to the engine as interopt calls what works well too.

Those performance issues are rapidly evaporating with new design patterns and .net updates, really. This isn't an age where we have to worry about a couple dozen MB of memory allocation, we only need to make sure the GC cleans it effectively.

 

Here's a list of game engines written in C#

I think it's still too new for anything mainstream to integrate with it.

I am tentatively planning on switching my stuff over to .NET Core but when I looked into it before it wasn't ready yet (it was a long ways off).

 

Switching to .NET Core is actually a bit of a downgrade. Most of .NET 4 does run under Mono on Linux so my motivation isn't too high to switch other than the future of Mono is a bit dubious now.

(They got WinForms working ... then abandoned it which never made a lot of sense to me. They claimed it was buggy but it seemed to work well enough. Then Miguel started working for Microsoft.)

 

 The future of .NET Core is also a bit dubious. It's unlikely that Microsoft will keep supporting it if they can't monetize it.
