Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

what's up, it's a new game design thread since i want to talk about game design and i'm tired of hijacking threads to do it

also if you can do the following and are interested in working with me on a mod for the UDK let me know

*modelling
*animation
*sound
*voice acting (professionals)

things i am interested in talking about lately

*how game mechanics can be used to present a character - niko saying that he wants to live a peaceful life and yet all these crazy players keep making him massacre cops, vito scaletta wanting to get respect and managing to kill everyone ever because that's the only way he or the player can interact with the world

*designing games so that the player still has agency to influence the narrative but it doesn't end up being a shallow mishmash of boring things to do and cutscenes a la just cause 2

*playing halo competitively

    I love the UDK.

    I am, at this very moment, working in the code on a project that is super top secret.

    I can't do any of those but I am in a class where we're doing flash/flex programming and I'm having a lot of fun with it. If I can get to the point that I can design a game in the style of Machinarium, I will be able to die happy.

    Been seeing a lot of great flash games lately.

    I can model in Revit.

    I feel that may not help you, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

    and will you accept something like being able to play the Pokemon TCG competitively instead, this is important

    confession: i love competitive vidya gaems and taking games way too seriously and i think it sucks that both those things have such a bum rap on these forums

    i would be totally down for an E-SPORTS thread some time if i didn't think it would just be me posting videos at myself

    I think it'd be better if you just tried to throw together a tournament for whatever game, brackets and match videos and all that.

    Probably a bad example since it fell apart a little after HG/SS came out, but the SE++ pokemon league started as a dumb idea and got pretty fun pretty quick.

    One time, I had a friend over to play a bit of Red Alert on my LAN. During the game he said he needed to go to the bathroom, so we paused it. After about 10 minutes of wondering where the hell he went, I get up and go to check on him.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    I took my first 3d modeling class last semester (3ds max)

    This year I am taking a 3d character design/animation class, and a level design class

    I don't have much experience in advanced stuff yet, but I am offering up my basic skills.

    edit: I can also do some drawring/concept art/brainstorming rad game ideas
