    A Strong Start

    Change Of Plans: I decided to use Unity instead of my own personal game engine, Ignis Game Engine. I made this change because I believe Unity will alleviate some stress in the development of the game. In addition, I am convinced that I finished the 2D system interface for the Ignis Game Engine; however, the 3D system implementation will take some time to complete. Good Start: I am excited and nervous at the same time when I started developing this game, Iron Age Stories. On the other hand, I managed to create a Sand-Box scene with a prototype coming together. What's Next: The next step is to tread carefully and plan accordingly on how I can succeed in this project. I did create a TODO list for the prototype to keep track of my progress; however, the list keeps growing. I can feel the stress already but I can spread the work into smaller pieces to determine the work load. Thanks for reading and happy coding!

    Iron Age Stories

    Iron Age Stories is a top-down pixel style/3D game that will deliver a single-player, story driven, and action/adventure RPG simulation with rogue-like elements. In addition, the player will fight huge enemies and face deadly traps in unexplored dungeons! The player will also explore the cursed land, Athary, and save the land from total annihilation. The game will have a Sand-Box mode where the player can create and defend his/her kingdom from the clutches of evil (More plans will come soon. Stay Tuned!). The Ports For the Game: The game will be released in: Nintendo Switch PC The Features: Story Mode Sand-Box Mode Random Dungeons Mode Permanent Death -- If the player gets killed, they will lose their saved game.

    Trial Of Courage

    Hello! It seems like things are finally moving along for me. I finally started a company after saving some money! I ran into road bumps in my life but I finally got back up again. My Small Independent Game Studio Company: So I started a small company called Dark Star Ship Studio and I am going to announce a game sometime in March. I am a bit nervous/scared that I will fail. However, if I can be careful about my decisions, maybe it can work out. I am trying to remain positive and realistic on making a game with a very simple gameplay. Also, I found a good 2D Pixel Artist working with me on the art side. Ignis Game Engine: I've been working on my game engine for the past two and a half years. I feel very satisfied with my proficiency in C/C++ and Visual Studios 2013. I was able to make DLL plugins for testing the graphics/gameplay in my game engine environment; in addition, I am trying to create my own procedural generated world map using the perlin noise algorithm (I might use a library instead if its taking too long). Hopefully, my 3D implementation will be completed once I can release a small 2D game. I know some people would suggest that I should use Unity, Unreal or GameMaker to make a game. Unfortunately, I prefer to start from scratch so that I can learn and challenge myself. I've been using Unity for almost two years and it is a great game engine but I am having a lot of fun trying to create my own game engine (I guess I like to go deeper to understand game engines???). Final Words: I hope I can triumph over these challenges that are coming my way. I can only hope that I don't burn out in the process since I do work. Wish me luck, Game Developers! I know I am going to need it.

    Nice going! Keep it up!
  5. Hi! I managed to have a 2D pixel artist contact me to make some pixel sprite work for me. I am happy but also lost on how to go about setting up a work plan list for this artist. Can anyone lend me some tips on how to complete a work plan list? Thanks!
  6. Greetings! Who do I need? I am creating a game and I need a 2D Pixel Artist(s) for my game. Introduction: I created a game company two days ago called Dark Star Ship Studio (The link to the company: http://darkstarshipstudio.com/). The game I am creating is a 2D action RPG game with city building game play elements and world exploration game play elements. The world is a procedural generated map (its in the design process) and I am creating the game play; unfortunately, my art skills are very poor. How much work did I accomplished? I've been working on my home brew game engine in C++ and I did try to make some pixel art (I attached a image example). Again, I know my pixel art is horrible. I do not have the talent or patience to create visual art. In addition, I did try to learn on how to create a decent pixel sprite sheet; however, I lost my patience and decided to come here to seek talented artists that are looking for an opportunity. What's in it for you? I wish I can compensate for your services and help. I am in the process of adding more Software Design plans for the game engine and hopefully the game can be available in mobile devices. As a matter of fact, I did registered for the Nintendo Developer Portal and I do wish to release the game in the Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Switch (I know what you're thinking, "This guy is nuts!"). I cannot promise if the product will succeed or not; however, the reward of creating a game and gaining experience can be very helpful in the future. Thank you for your time! cyberspace009

    My C++ Game Engine from scratch

    Nice! I am also creating a C++ game engine from scratch, too. Keep it up!
  8. I've been very busy at my job and decided to release some stress after 3 years of programming experience at work. It seems like my c++ skills have gained new levels and JavaScript is a simple fun language that I've enjoyed. In addition, I was learning to use the basics of the Unity 3D engine and it seems like I've learned a lot with the program, too. I can become lazy when it comes to art. I can model 3D meshes pretty well in Blender 3D and I have 1 year of experience; however, animating an object in 3D requires a lot of patience and it seems like I do not have it. I started out from this: To this: You can learn a lot in 1 year using Blender 3D. Also, I created a FREE unity 3D game application in Google Play store (the app does not have any Ads!). try it out on your android phone. Critic is always welcomed! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.DarkShipStudios.FlipIt&hl=en I am debating to try and join a group to make a game in Unity 3D but is it possible if I work almost everyday? Who knows?

    Very busy...

    I actually have a job! I've been very busy working as a software developer. I love my job so far and I am learning new things. I was struggling looking for work but thank goodness that someone contacted me about a full time position in software engineering I. Today, I am working and trying to start my own buisness. Game Development : SDL is a very interestings API. I've been practicing and learning SDL for almost two years. Did I learn anything? Yes. In addition, my C++ expereince has increased, too. I made up my mind on following my dreams. I was not sure if I want to make games and fail on trying to start a company. However, I want to try and make my dreams happen. I always have this idea on starting a game development company and actually manage to make great games. Thus, I need to come up with a nice company name soon... Creating my first game engine: It finally happened. My first attempt on creating a 2D/3D game engine. I was able to complete the 2D portion that has collision support but I ran into some bugs with the alpha color setup for the sprite. In addition, learning OpenGL can be another challenge. The reason why I am making a game engine is to increase my skills in C++ programming and some of us do believe that "practice makes perfect" . I will post more thoughts and news this weekend. Thank you for reading!

    Would you try free PC and laptop repair?

      I am trying to convince myself to NOT join his cause.   I want to start making games on mobile devices and start my own company. I don't see myself joining his company due to the fact that I hate dealing with customer service. In addtion, the people here at Gamedev help me see the pros and cons.   I am going to tell him that I am not interested.

      I told my friend the same exact thing. Depending on grants from the government and donations from companies will be unrealistic. Don't get my friend wrong about doing good for society. He wants to help the community and all but he also told me this is a "side" job for him. What I am trying to wrap my head around this dilema is that he hates PC repair and still he is willing to do this. I want to say "no thanks" but what if this idea of his becomes a huge success? Clearly, his idea is to help people with no technological skills or people with no experience in troubleshooting PCs/Laptops. Sadly, I agree with you Khatharr on his dependency for "wealthy benefactors" can be unrealistic.   Joining/Creating a business can be a real challenge. In addition, I hate taking a risk that I am not sure about. Is this risk worth taking? Including when I may have to pay $366 for the location in the future?   NOTE: He wants to open/rent a location near a mall and expect the both of us to pay the rent.

      My friend said he will depend on government grants and other tech companies to donate for the cause. He is trying to make a non-profit organization focused on PC/Laptop repair for communites and companies for free. I am worried about this because how long will it take for companies to donate for a free service in PC/Laptop repair? In additon, he thinks the the government will give him grants for the organization? I am afraid to take a risk like this but how likely will this work?   Note: He is paying out of his own pocket to open a location in the future (pretty soon).

    You're probably right about that. I was trying to find an answer on what should I do. I need to think about this and do more research on this idea.
