  1. Hello! I have a little experience of working with C# in Unity and MonoDevelop, a little C++ experience (but not much), and a little experience programming arduinos. I also have the software "Game Maker" for mac. I wonder if you have any advice for me if I would like to develop games for mac. Do you suggest xcode?      I would like to program them from scratch, I don't want to use engines like unity. 
  2. Hello everyone! I am looking for a project to join/or start,working as a sound designer and musician. [LINKS REMOVED BY MODERATOR] is my youtube.   I am a schooled musician, and schooled audio engineer. I don't have much programming experience, though I really want to learn. I have no experience of working with games.
  3. Hello everybody! I just want to share my music with you!     "Kommandotolken" is swedish for "the command-line interface".    Kommandotolken is an electronically music project, founded by me, Henrik Thomasson. I take influences from synth music, ambient, electro, rock, hip hop, lo-fi and noise. I am inspired by Com Truise, Airliner, Depeche Mode, Alphaville, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Frank Klepacki, Erasure, Shmu, Henry Homesweet, Neon Indian, Superchunk, Christian Marclay and Otomo Yoshihide.   I  began to play the drums as the age of 11. By the age of 13, I started to play the bass, simultaneously as I played the drums. I developed my skills, and started to record my own songs in my attic. I had an old 4 channel Behringer mixer, as well as some JJlabs microphones.   I use a lot of various instruments, ranging from the drums, to synthesizers, toy instruments, effect processors, gaming consoles, various electronic equipment etc.   My music is somewhere in the field of being improvised and being organized.     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EcNJ0gXB4U Kosmonauten   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ANQKm3mrXQ Mango   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMZk1HjM444 Ökenfolket   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GC5tTGCA6zI Lucida Drömmar   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ut7xqebwsc Oceanen     I have a few other projects as well.

I really want to make music for a game!
  4. Hello everybody!   My name is Henrik Thomasson and I am a 19 year old musician/composer/sound designer/engineer. I have studied aesthetical music and sound production at Christian 4:s gymnasium in Kristianstad. I took music theory classes, sound engineering classes, various instrument classes as well as ensemble classes.   I have played the drums since the age of 11, and with age I progressed and started to play other instruments as well. Now I own a drum kit, various percussions, bass guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, different synths, samplers, turntables and mixers.   I have always wanted to compose music and create sounds for a movie or a game, and I thought this place might be a good place to get feedback.    http://henrikthomasson.bandcamp.com is my bandcamp site.   www.youtube.com/user/funkigamoses is my youtube   Kommandotolken: Chiptune, electro, ambient http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R48mPlwajMU Kommandotolken - frijazzelectro   A mix between jazz and electro.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GC5tTGCA6zI Kommandotolken - Lucida drömmar   An electronical song accompanied by scenes from the movie "Akira".   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33CDjM_ll5Q Kommandotolken - Hiroshima   A very long electronical song, made in Logic, accompanied by scenes from the movie "Barefoot Gen".   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ut7xqebwsc Kommandotolken - Oceanen   A pretty ambient and relaxing song with pictures from the ocean outside of Japan, I believe.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BSsFLMPvos Kommandotolken - Det Pixelerade Poolpartyt   A pretty funky chiptune song.   Some live performances by Kommandotolken. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7FyXGgX9yI    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lMvHHxB-aE    Hydrolog: Experimental rock, krautrock, indie, electronical   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcqiJZXMqZQ Hydrolog - Plutononiumpojken   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7zwiPNCNL0 Hydrolog - Det Muterade Nejonögat   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Wlt6pDLeE4 Hydrolog - Röda Havet   Meijer: Electronical, music concrete   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdypKAO4Vxo Meijer - Moses   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7VqeZKvUOc Meijer - Potions and Herbs   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM0or3_Fdz4 Meijer - Magicians   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXHdvFN8nDU Meijer - End
