Topics I've Started

Working Game + Professional Programmer looking for artist! (+ possible booth/trip t...

03 December 2016 - 07:19 AM

Hi! I'm a professional programmer (http://arianv.com) with years of experience in web and game development. About 2 days ago, I started working on a game prototype. It worked out and I got the base mechanics of the game done, plus a level editor!
 
The game is in the puzzle genre, with unique mechanics I based off an old game that has not really been rehashed/revived yet, and which I feel can be quite a hit if done right. The nature of the game's mechanics allows for a game that is brimming with personality, which I feel is really popular especially on the mobile market.
 
The reason I'm looking for a rev-share collaborator is because I really believe in this game, and want someone who I can bounce ideas off with and can form a possible long time partnership with.
 
The design of the game is going to be inherently juicy, and i feel like the art style that will work wonders for the game is similar to pudding monsters or cut the rope. I would of course be really interested in hearing your opinion as well.
 
I also have tons of client work experience as well so I can assure you that I'll see this project gets done.

​Thanks! Please pm me so I can send you a link to the game (keeping it under wraps for now ;)

Portfolio and advice

14 January 2014 - 08:49 AM

Would you kindly take a look and critique my portfolio?

  • I think one of my biggest problems is me not actually showing any code.
  • I do not have enough flavor text to discuss my roles in each project. Perhaps I should actually expand each game/project, (with different screenshots, and maybe screenshots of code? that will look pretty :)

===========

 

The university that seems like a very viable option for me is only offering a B.A. in Multimedia Studies. Should I look for another university that offers a traditional CS degree? Is it that important, or would the B.A. in MS be enough to at least get me looks?


Know a game developer without a degree?

Hey guys, I'm in the process of creating an article.

 

If you are, or know of any game developer without a degree, I would love to get in touch.

 

Please do post below!

 

I already have a compiled list of superstar game devs without a degree, but I want to expand my list.


Can I write this "How-to" an article?

16 November 2013 - 03:24 AM

I'm planning to write a simple "The Basics of a Virtual Pet Site" article.

 

However I'm not sure if it would be on-topic/in-interest for gamedev.net. Do you allow "How to's" such as this.

 

There's also the question of audience. I might actually rename it to: "The Basics of Multiplayer Games; Creating a Virtual Pet Site" Thought that might be a little bit misleading too.

 

Any thoughts?
