      Hi!
      We're currently two programmers and a game designer working on a turn-based tactics fantasy board game. For reference you can search for images of "Tactics Arena Online", a fairly dated game that used to have a lot of depth and complexity.
      Our goal is to use the same combat concepts, but giving it a much needed modern touch as well as a whole new set of heroes to choose from with additional abilities. The game is a mix of isometric and 3D and we plan to release the game on Steam and hopefully Android & iOS as well.
      We are looking for someone to work with us pro-bono (just like we're doing) as a 3D character artist. The skills needed are creativity, a hard working attitude and an ability to make minor animations (things like idle, walk, block and very rudimentary attack animations). A perk to have would be the ability to make some VFX. If the game makes it on steam and money starts coming in, you'd obviously be compensated for your hard work, but as it stands this is a hobby project to garnish your portfolio.
      A bit more about the game:
      This game will be an online multiplayer game where each user gets to pick up to 10 characters to place on his half of the board (this would be done before even entering matchmaking. Think runes in League of Legends for example). The user can place his 10 units of choice anywhere he likes on his half board. Some units can be used more than once. So if you want 4 knights and 2 mages or even if you want 10 clerics, you can do as you please. You can then save your setups for future use. The goal of the game is to wipe out the enemy team.
      Each character or Hero (except premium and abyss characters) start with 1 ability and they can ascend (either by playing a certain amount of matches with the character or by forcing the ascension with real money) to gain a new ability or passive. Acquiring a new character can be done by using in-game currency that you earn from playing matches or using real money with the exception of Abyss characters which can only be acquired by winning certain rare matches. The goal is to offer a freemium game with lots of customizable elements while making sure that no user can "buy power" with real money. We want everything that a paying user can get to be available to non-paying users who play the game a lot.
      Ultimately we want this to become a competitive game that people can enjoy and really get invested in. Each character is designed with options for counterplay in mind and synergy with other heroes.
       
      We sincerely believe in what this game can become and we home to find someone just as passionate as we are to get involved in this project!

         Hello , i would like to showcase my first game project, a simple endless casual arcade game called Apples Mania : Apple Catcher. The game has simple goal , scoring as high as possible by collecting falling apples while the difficulty gradually increases. Different apples are worth different amount of points and there are also 2 power-ups to help you in your challenge.
        The game took me about 2 months to complete and polish and i made everything except for the music tracks and some of the sound files. Made in unity and blender3d.
        Would appreciate any kind of feedback.

I'm a C# software developer and I'm looking to start game development using Unity. I'm trying to get my feet wet with the Unity game engine before I decide what type of game I want to develop. I'll probably start small and build from there. Just curious if anyone has created a game for either Xbox One or PS4 using Unity and how long did it take? How many people did you have working on the game?

Thanks everyone!

Andrew

How small is small? How big is the team? What assets do they already have?

 

The games still need to pass certification which takes some time. The games have minimum standards which really aren't that bad but are enough to trip up most hobby development.

 

We have put some of these together (not on either of those platforms, but similar) in about 3 months, but that was with an experienced team of about ten people and a good collection of existing themed assets.

Well... if I was going to guess maybe a small game would be like Tetris? That's purely a guess and correct me if I'm wrong to think that! Currently it's just me (1 man team ?) while I learn the engine. I've been a backend dev for a web site the last 5 years and figured it was time to start. Wanting to make a career out of it. You said you had 10 people on your team that were experienced? How many years does most of your team have under their belts?

I have an idea of what I want to build but not much other than drawings and notes. What website would you recommend for checking those min requirements?

Making a tetris game for the desktop would give you some experience, and a lowerbound estimate.


Awesome I'll aim for something similar to that at first!

Why are you so focused on Xbone or PS4?

Do you have a licence to develop for those platforms.

If you are just after an idea of what ps4 / bone games have already been created then this page allows you to filter by platform:

 

https://unity3d.com/showcase/gallery/?platform=ps4&genre=&gametype=t-all#gamesstart

Also what is your definition of a "small game"?

A simple basic version of Tetris, Breakout, Space Invaders or Flappy Bird could be accomplished in Unity in a few hours to a weekend depending on your abilities.  The games on Unitys page will have taken much longer than this because of all the creative Juice that went into making them.

If you want to add all the bits of "Juice" to make it a game that people might actually want to play then it will increase to maybe weeks or months depending on how many ideas you have and how many assets you need to create.

How many people did you work with? How big would you have considered your game?

Without clear and precise definition of what the game does, any number is as good as any other number.
