Now that we're done making our speedgames...

Postby muadib » Thu Jul 31, 2014 10:09 am

So, we've had a little break now after making our games. Does anyone want to team up make a Christian game? I'm sure we've all got tons of ideas for games, but can't do much on our own. How about we make a team, choose a project, and get something done together.

What do you guys think? Anyone interested?

I've been telling myself there's no time to start side projects, but taking a break from working solo was so much fun that I might be convinced! Still have to manage time carefully, but the right project could be exciting to participate in.

Experience:
Win/Mac/Linux, with a preference for Linux.
C/C++ (fair), Lua/Love2D (pretty good), Godot Engine/GScript (still learning. It's cool!).
My greatest strengths are probably in visual arts, both 2D and 3D.

I believe I would be the most useful as a part-time underling artist, possibly scripting, and maybe adding input on workflow and time management/producing (though that's probably a common skill in the Christian Developers community).

Thanks for directing me to that Bugala!

I tried the latest build and it doesn't seem to do a whole lot, mostly debug. Is there a lot of programming needed for that still? I could probably help out there. What is the tool being used?

As long as there's an organized work flow, I'm in.

I can help with programming, gameplay, and time management.

I'll have to pass, but I'm excited about the potential with a bunch of Speedgame Survivors on the team.

A lot of the time these projects are a bunch of talk and not much action, but you guys are able to do much better!

I was talking to Dylen Rivera about this a week ago. Im committed to my own projects and its hard sometimes to really find passion in working with a project belonging to someone else or to a group. However it would be cool to help each other out, even if its in small portions, apply our individual expertise on different projects. Helps the community as a whole move different projects forward.

The programming language I am currently using is LUA based language called Hollywood. It is my choice of langauge based upon it being able to compile Amigaverions as well.

However, since I am anyway plannign to write the code from scratch again (although reusing usable parts of code), it also opens up the possiblity to change the language if there are truly interested programmers.

I am just afraid it might happen like it have happened before that people will start programming a lot at first, and then they just drop it. With it being programmed with a language i myself know, I can at least push it myself forward. That i havent programmed it for long time was to do with me not seeing much point going forward before some other decisions were done, and before those decisions could have been done i felt necessity to read the Holy War which surprisingly took me more than half a year to read till end! (and i thought it be like month-two delay only)

There are two reasons for Amiga version. One is that it motivates me personally, as Its been my twenty+ year old dream of making a good game for Amiga, and another is that I believe that despite this being christian game, Amiga users, even they are not that many, will play it regardless, hence we actually have a chance to have some effect to non christian audience.

Also, I am sure Amiga Future magazine will be happy to make a fullpage or two page review of this when its complete, and I think that would be great to see this game actualyl reviewed by a paper magazine.

But. If there really are many people who are interested in programming this, it is possible to change a language at this point. It would also give the advantage that right now this is solely dependant upon me, since I am only one programming in Hollywood language, hence if i get tired, its stuck. With more programmers, it wouldnt get stuck just if one gets tired.

I really like the sound of this. I'm really good at team management, support, etc. Including documentation and project management. Projects with multiple developers seriously need such a backbone. If we all decide to work on something, I'm more than willing to take on this task.
