Allow me to reintroduce myself, my name is Marv! V to the I-Nů

Crap, that's the only hot lyric i can spit. Oh well. My name is MarvinH. I go by @MarvinHawkins on Twitter. I was a follower of the indie scene for years, a game school, and several projects later, I am finally comfortable calling myself an indie developer. I live in Chicago, which is one of the greatest cities in the world. We have the best food, and I'm totally not biased.


Why am I here? Well I love indie games. I'm a veteran of sites like Indiegamer.com, and need a new forum community.

Right now, I'm working on my first solo title, while supporting a few indie titles that are available in the app store. (Links Below). I love all kinds of games, but lately more of my time is spent on social. Outside of games, I like reading and love sports. If it wasn't for games, I'd probably be pursuing a path in that. Right now, I'm working on the 12 Games a year challenge (1 a month) as a way to force myself finish the various projects that remain unfinished. Any other questions, just ask!

[Tyrian screenshot]
Heck yes Tyrian. Probably the third (fourth?) videogame I was ever introduced to, the first two being Tetris and Jazz Jackrabbit. I can't remember if I was introduced to Super Mario World before or after that. Just downloaded it a couple of days ago from gog.com to play it again - it's aged very well.

Anyway, I'm Chrysiridia. I'm taking a videogame design class at my university this quarter, and it's gotten me totally interested in making games long term. I'm studying art (also biology, which has less obvious overlap, but still relevant!), and videogames are the first medium I've encountered where I've been excited enough to think about working on them long term. I am interested in them as an art form to some extent, but mostly I just dig a good game.

I'd like to stick around and learn as much as I can so I can get over that nothing-I-make-is-as-good-as-I-want-it-to-be phase as quickly as possible. Working with Stencyl for class, but hoping to get into C# as soon as school stops kicking my butt.

Howdy all!

I just discovered TIGSource and wow super cool!

A little about myself. I am a software engineer and develop control systems for helicopters and military aircraft during the day.

At night I make some money, with the help of Unity, making interactive displays. However, at the beginning of this year my partner and I decided to actually make video games with Unity! (I've wanted to make videos ever since I was twelve years old.)

Super pumped to see what other Indies are up to and to show you all what we are up to.

Well I am recently getting back to game dev, joined the army and have been in for almost 2 years, Injured my spine, my left leg, and a bunch of other body parts that has been keeping me from deployments lol. So no point in staying in if I cant deploy(deployments are the way I can really do my job) Stuck up here in Alaska hating life, for some reason the Army likes to put us southern boys in cold places lol.

Look forward to getting back into game development, maybe it'll keep me from going crazy up here.

Oh dear. Perhaps I should have examined this forum more closely before I joined.

Ah well.

I am Schilcote, and I code in Python. I write games. I used to have a moustache, but I shaved it.

Hi! I'm John. Here's a picture of me playing some Daytona USA/blowing minds:



I'm working on a story driven, tactical RPG called Liege. I'll be posting a devlog here in a bit, but here are some screenshots for now:



Some of my all-time favorites games include FFVI and Tactics, Chrono Trigger, Morrowind, the Civilizations, Shadow of the Colossus, Starcraft, and Quake II. I love games and what I believe games can be, and want to see them evolve from what today’s games (as a whole) have become. Recently, games like Sword & Sworcery, Bastion, Hunters, and Ravenmark:SOE are what inspire me and what I play. These are the types of games I hope to make.

Cheers! Toast Right

Hello I'm leafo. I thought I had an account here a long time ago, but I guess not. I've made a few games for Ludum Dare:

http://leafo.net/#games

I make websites, music and games. But I mostly program. Follow me on GitHub if that's your thing: https://github.com/leafo

I make all my games in my own programming language called MoonScript (http://moonscript.org), which compiles down to Lua. Then I run them in Love2d

I'm slowly making a game not in the confines of Ludum Dare. You can follow any of my endeavours on my blog: http://leafo.tumblr.com/

Here's a cool gif from my last Ludum Dare entry, I hope it's not too big:

Hey guys,

Working on a game for Android/iOS at the moment. It's a runner-like game, but it may have levels. It's my first solo-developed game, so that's why it's a casual game rather than the dream epic Witcher 2/Skyrim crossbreed I really wanna make lol. Will hopefully release it sometime this year.

Prototype is almost complete. Can't wait to show it to the world when it's ready. Looking forward to checking out the games from the people on these forums!

Good luck everyone!

Hello everyone.  I created this account a while ago, but never got around to introducing myself.

My name is Erik.  Game development is a favorite hobby of mine, though it's often difficult to make time for it.  I used to participate in LD48's pretty regularly:
http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/author/erik/

Lately my game dev time has been going into Life Goes On, a project that started at the 2012 Global Game Jam.

As for early influences and that sort of thing... the big one that comes to mind is the Space Quest series.  Particularly Space Quest III.  I loved that game as a kid.  The internet generally doesn't seem to have as much nostalgia for it as I do though.

Happy game deving everyone.

Hey all, Sam here.  I guess you could say I'm a "veteran" in the industry (i.e. old Smiley), having worked professionally as a games programmer for nearly 15 years.  Originally from the UK, I have lived in Vancouver, Canada for many years, working at EA (most recently as lead rendering engineer on SSX).

A few months ago I quit EA to try my hand at indie development, the time seemed right for a new challenge!  I'm now working on a first person exploration and construction game.



Here it is in action: http://youtu.be/b8aie7Iqtuo
My dev blog: http://dangersam.tumblr.com/

It's truly inspiring to see just how many indie devs are on here making cool stuff, I wish you all the best with your projects!

Cheers,
Sam

Hello Everybody!

I'm Nicolas Coronado. The thought of making games is the only thing that keeps me going.
My entire life it was my dream to make games but life is distracting and sometimes you just don't get the education you were looking for; I got distracted by 3d, and then compositing and ended up working for films and tv as I never found how I fitted in the whole game making thing. I'm usually a VFX compositor, currently doing some digital compositing at Framestore, in London UK. I also have a small venture in Colombia -where I am from- called Autobotika, we do vfx and want to do concept design and games and stuff.

When I'm not working overtime I'm programming stuff; I started doing bunches of creative coding using processing and now I am making the leap to Java.

I've written "I" Lots of times in this introduction because that's the way I was taught to write in english. It starts so sound horribly selfish with time.

My favorite games ever would be Mario 3, Final Fantasy Tactics, Chrono Cross and Vagrant Story in the big budget side of things; In the sunnier Indie side I've really loved Limbo, Super Meatboy, Red Rouge, Teleglitch and Risk of rain.

I'm working on several game Ideas, one prototype in particular which I'd love to show you guys when it is more polished. And when I get how this whole internet forum thing works.

In the meantime, I can show you the shortfilm I made with a bunch of friends a couple of years ago. http://draconiansolo.wordpress.com/2011/11/26/diastole-fuckyeah/

Hi all,

I'm a high school student interested in working in the field of game dev.

And I like to create cool stuff.

That's pretty much it.
