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!

    I have more respect for the motherfuckers behind that Kickstarter scam then I do for that asshole trying to peddle his "Your World" shit.

    Is there a Gang of Daggers Kickstarter? There really should be.

    What is this Your World thing? And why is it so horrible?

    It is "A MMORPG Game built by gamer's, for gamer's and funded by gamer's. "

    how did this even get 20K in funding at all?

    This guy is basically pitching Second Life

    I believe it's two bogus $10,000 pledges that makes the total look like that.

    Successful Kickstarter get! Drop by Bare Mettle Entertainment if you'd like to see what we're making.

    It's RE4 with slightly better graphics. The controls are the same (aka super fucking weird). There are only 12 achievements and they are dumb.

    But it's still RE4 so I bought it and enjoyed it. It has all the DLC and Mercenaries.

    Here's another one that was on reddit and another shitty site. Although the guy looks like he "hired" a pixel artist in the last update, it's still $30,000 (goal of $10,000) going to an RPG Maker project.

    I wish they would make a Myth 3 game that was not shitty and from a different developer like Myth 3.

    So basically Myth 2 for the broadband age. That game was the best.

    ok I only glanced over that since you posted the link (and wouldn't touch reddit with a stolen iMac) but what is the problem?

    Looks like an interesting project. Budget is hell of low (even $30k would be hell of low) unless the creator is doing this for free in their spare time. But a lot of people do just that.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    Any other boozers around?

    I am buying one bottle tonight - should it be:
    Remy Martin VSOP
    Old Forrester bourbon
    Four Roses
    Evan Williams Single Barrel
    or Forty Creek double barrel select which is apparently a genuine premium canadian whiskey, weird as that sounds.

    Spore was so cool! It's too bad there wasn't a game shipped on the disk :(

    I said it before but I want to make a game that really explores evolutionary tradeoffs in organisms somehow

    So sort of like spore but probably with more creature raising

    i dont have a good framework though, but I miss all the monster raising games from the early days of the playstation

    I kind of want to mix those style of games with something like spore

    It appears pretty much all the art assets were stolen from other places around the web. Basically, they had nothing.

    ah, ok. I didn't recognize the art as coming from somewhere else.

    You may already have done this, but if you really want to do this, pick something simple to start with (make a pong clone, or whatever), because it is going to be more complicated than you think it is. It makes a huge difference to your motivation to be able to get something working quickly.

    The worst thing about Spore, the absolute worst thing, was when you got to the space game and it was super clear other races were attacking you because your expansion in a different direction triggered the event, meaning you frequently had to abandon your effort to grow as you dealt with war.

    So I'm guessing winky didn't finally get serious on his promise to get serious and design a game from the ground up with no programming knowledge?

    I'm actually kinda bummed about that. :(

    definetly. If you are getting into programming (as opposed to hiring a team) you need to start in the late 1970s in terms of complexity and work your way forward.

    It is way better to finish the worlds billionth Breakout clone (and Breakout / Arkanoid is pretty much the "Hello World" of game programmer - something everyone should do) than take on a project that is too complex to finish.

    For your first couple games go for something that - in terms of gameplay and scale - you would find on an Atari 2600 (obviously with modern graphics / sound and such).

    I'm not sure about whether or not the art assets were stolen from other places, but I just being a little incredulous about being able to crowdsource $30,000 by saying you're going to be using a free-to-use development platform.

    Even if they are using an existing platform or engine, a full game is going to have a lot more than $30K worth of artwork and music in it if you were hiring professionals to create them.
