Hi I'm a hobbyist getting together a team to pursue game creation, we'll do both 2D and 3D games, we would definitely build different types of games, and hopefully have a great time doing it. you dont have to have much experience, just enough that you think you can fill the position. I have plenty of ideas for games that I'd love your help with, and am completely open to fulfilling your game ideas . As of right now this is a for fun project thing, but if me and my team are satisfied with our work it can be published to steam or other platforms.
The positions I'm currently looking to fill are:
2D Pixel artist
I am currently working on a project it is a 2D Merchant adventure game with survival elements. It does not have a name yet, that's because I'm bad with names.
If interested please feel free to leave me a PM or email at email@example.com so we can talk more about it..

Hey guys and girls, Have you ever found yourself trying to apply for a job to be a game developer or a game artist? Maybe a sound engineer or a script writer? Only to not even get an interview due to lack of ‘experience’, teamwork projects or released game titles you have worked on? I have for sure. The game industry is hard and competitive to get into for someone new, especially when you might have a full time job or even have to support a family. So I have come up with an idea and I wanted to throw something out there to see if people could be interested in such an idea. What if you could be part of a virtual game development company? A place where you can work on projects with a team of people from the internet, soon to be known as your colleagues, which could be from anywhere in the world all working at your own pace when you have time to do as little or as much as you want. The idea is we can create the power of a company and release titles together. Not only do you then have a released game title you have worked on under your resume, but also work experience, team work skills, and the power of helping each other and learning from each other. My dream idea is to create a solid place for people to join a party and develop ideas and create games and level up it experience points. As far as money is concerned, the games would either be released for free or any money would go towards charity, it’s not about making money, it’s about building a career or justness having fun building games and socialising with like minded people. I want to make something amazing, I think it would benefit me, and I think others who are serious would benefit greatly too. I await your critasism on the ‘prototype’ idea, I just wanted to see how many people would be interested in such a concept. And if you are very much into the idea, let’s make it happen. Thanks, Will. www.feelingterrible.com
I finally ported Rastertek's tutorial # 42 on soft shadows and blur shading. This tutorial has a ton of really useful effects and there's no working version anywhere online.
Unfortunately it just draws a black screen. Not sure what's causing it. I'm guessing the camera or ortho matrix transforms are wrong, light directions, or maybe texture resources not being properly initialized. I didnt change any of the variables though, only upgraded all types and functions DirectX3DVector3 to XMFLOAT3, and used DirectXTK for texture loading. If anyone is willing to take a look at what might be causing the black screen, maybe something pops out to you, let me know, thanks.
Also, for reference, here's tutorial #40 which has normal shadows but no blur, which I also ported, and it works perfectly.
