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!
So my fiancee's 10yr old little brother really looks up to me, seeing as I will actually engage him about things he likes: lego, video games, toys, etc. Anyway, he heard that I've worked on some video-game related stuff in college, and it seems he has the inspiration to "make a video game."
The last time I was over there, he even showed me an adorable 10-year-old version of a design document for a megaman clone: character sketches, story outlines, descriptions of various weapons you could get and what they did, what all the bosses would do. The kid is inspired.
And I feel like it's my obligation as a good brother-in-law to help him realize this dream, as much as is feasible. I think that he'd really get into it if I got him started on some 2D animation, maybe showed him how to do simple looping sprites.
Anyone know a good, simple, preferably free, 2D GIF animator or something that will run on an old-ass computer?
