Spaceshooter Retrofabulous Join us!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

My husband and I have this idea for a uniquely retro mobile (Android/iOS) game. It's a top-down Shmup spaceshooter with a twist or three. My hubby (Jon) has some basic programming skills and has started creating a demo version of the game in GameMaker, but we both work full time. If we can get a team together, we would like to eventually relaunch a kickstarter page and get some funding to make the game a reality! For now, we are looking for the following so we can create a demo and further develop our vision:

 

Programmer(s): who loves shmups? Think Super Megaforce but not! We have already started in GameMaker, but Unity might work too.

GFX Pixel Artist: 8bit/16bit, we have a foundation that needs improvements!

Music Artist: High Octane/upbeat Chiptune soundtrack. We have nada!

If you have some skills, please post below with what role you would like to assume and we can get the ball rolling! 

 

Attached is one of the spaceship evolution concepts.

Hi, I'm a Unity developer who specializes in development of 2D games for the Android platform. 

I've got a fair amount of experience in working with bullet hell mechanics as well.

 

While I'm already working part-time for a studio, I'd love to help you guys out in my spare time.

If you decide to move your project to Unity and would like to get in touch with me - feel free to send me an email: rk.softwaredev@gmail.com

That's pretty awesome Daniel! I think we may have our musicians (to be fair I picked the first 2 I got responses from), but can we use you as a backup? 

We REALLY need a pixel artist (our designs need help!), and possibly another programmer.

We have most of our team set and ready! We could still use a pixel artist to create retro fabulous pixel space backgrounds! Please message me or reply to this post if you have experience in pixel art creation and would like to join our team. Thanks!

      I am a player for WCRA, the company kixeye who have developed it has upset it's player base. We are looking to take all our money for microtransactions in this game and put it into a kick starter fund or other like it to build a mobile war game rts that is built around the community ideas. If anyone is interested I will invite you to our line chat group that represents approximately 40000 players in War Commander Rogue Assault to discuss thus with the community leaders

      Hey guys,   As the title says, I'm trying to control a desktop game by using my mobile phone as a controller.  I created two scenes, one that acts as a server, other as a client.    Server has this code: void Start () {         Test = "Nothing yet happened";         NetworkServer.Listen(25000);         NetworkServer.RegisterHandler(888, ServerReceiveMessage);     }         private void ServerReceiveMessage(NetworkMessage message)     {                 StringMessage msg = new StringMessage();         msg.value = message.ReadMessage<StringMessage>().value;         if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(msg.value))         {             Test = "Message received";             string[] deltas = msg.value.Split('|');             Horizontal = Convert.ToSingle(deltas[0]);             Vertical = Convert.ToSingle(deltas[1]);             TestScript.MoveForward(Vertical);             TestScript.RotateAroundY(Horizontal);         }         else         {             Test = "Nothing received";         }     }  
        And client this:  private void Connect()     {              client.Connect(IPAddress, 25000);           }     void Start () {         client = new NetworkClient();         Connect();            }         void Update () {    #if UNITY_ANDROID         MobileTouches = Input.touches;         if (MobileTouches.Length > 0)         {             for (int i = 0; i < MobileTouches.Length; i++)             {                 if (MobileTouches[i].phase == TouchPhase.Moved)                 {                     Horizontal = MobileTouches[i].deltaPosition.x;                     Vertical = MobileTouches[i].deltaPosition.y;                 }else if(MobileTouches[i].phase == TouchPhase.Stationary)                 {                     Connect();                                  }             }         } #elif UNITY_EDITOR               Horizontal = Input.GetAxis("Horizontal");         Vertical = Input.GetAxis("Vertical"); #endif         thumb.Translate(Vector3.up * Vertical * Time.deltaTime);         thumb.Translate(Vector3.right * Horizontal * Time.deltaTime);         SendControllerInfo();     }     static public void SendControllerInfo()     {         if (client.isConnected)         {             StringMessage msg = new StringMessage();             msg.value = Horizontal + "|" + Vertical;             client.Send(888, msg);         }     }  
        Ip address is hard coded, I just replaced it with the "IpAddress" variable. The code itself builds fine, and when I try to run in on a desktop computer, it works as expected (just a simple movement of an object on the server screen). However when I try to publish the client scene to a mobile device (Android), it doesn't connect to the server. They are both connected to the same network. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?   Thanks
