Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
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!

    Orik, what do you mean when you are requesting sound?

    Also I have some experience in voice acting (doing production for my radio show/station) and have the equipment to record it/send it.

    It's gonna be tough to top Batman Arkham Asylum

    Seriously though, I'm ok at Halo Reach

    Arkham Asylum is an action brawler set in an asylum and the surrounding grounds. With Batman.

    It's like comparing apples and spent uranium fuel rods.

    Have you looked at websites that have provide access to free stuff? My productions at school tend to use a lot of stuff from www.freeplaymusic.com for instance.

    Yeah sound effects and ambient stuff is pretty easy to come by through the wonders of the internet. It gets a little hard at some points but all in all you can find pretty much anything you would need.

    You should find whoever is responsible for that and kill them so they stop taking your mind off of your X-COM LP.

    Videogame ideas!

    Portal, except the orientation of your exit portal affects the direction of gravity. The goal is to fling yourself towards targets in a fluid manner; you must prepare the next target by creating an entrance portal on your current target and finding a suitable exit surface in-flight. It's like the cannon minigame in Pilotwings, except twitchy and spatial.

    Wait, are you saying this game isn't even going to feature Batman? Why bother

    Really though, I am just joshing around

    A detective game in a prison sounds cool and intriguing, possibly creepy

    it's gonna be stark and relatively realistic, although the colour palette is going to be more mirror's edge than call of duty

    I *felt* like I was using clearcase. 4 years worth of revisions on three major J2EE application complete with web fronts including the graphic assets.

    *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

    Let me run this by you

    Genre swapping.

    You're the newest challenger in the underground world of Tokyo drifting. Tonight's race has gone to shit, and you're forced to jump a drainage canal, but you're outta nitrous and you might not make it. You hit the right bumper, and bam, suddenly you're an old west cowboy chasing down a stagecoach. The canal's now a dry gulley, and you ride your horse down into it. A mile later, you ride out and hit the left bumper, and you've cut ahead of the race. Or maybe you hit the right bumper instead, and you've navigated your space fighter out of the asteroid belt.

    But let's say you went back to Tokyo. The other racers are pretty pissed off after the race, and mob you back at the winner's circle. There's a dozen of them, but you switch over to the Michael Bay Action scene, where you can take on dozens of mooks with ease. Unfortunately, one of the rules of this world is that the bad guy captures the girl. Maybe if you had taken on group back in Tokyo Drifter land, she would have been safe. Or, maybe if you had just jumped the canal in the first place, they wouldn't have attacked you.

    I loves me some branching pathways
