Greetings community, i am Steve, i've been programming for over 20 years (2 years with game programming). Since i was a teenager i've dreamed of making a final fantasy-like game and would love to do so someday if i ever were to find a passionate graphic artist.

I made a few iOS & Windows Phone games. I am currently developing a 2D rpg engine in my spare time in C# language using XNA framework. I also do web programming in php/javascript but i prefer game programming because it's much more fun  Smiley

Hi, I'm Larry. I've always had some sort of a passion for video games but it wasn't fully realized until I had access to the internet and a laptop of my own. With such technologically advanced tools at hand, I've come across several different spriting sites and 2D game engines, due to having an unrealized high interest in gaming.

During such "studies", I started to shift interest towards retro games, fascinated with how creative those developers had to be to make such great gaming experiences with what limitations they had, producing classics that still live strong amongst today's heavy hitters.

Some of my absolute favorite games are Prince of Persia (original), Tekken series, Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, Tomb Raider Anniversary and Underworld, ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, Oddworld: Abe's Exodus, Castlevania 1 and 3, Ninja Gaiden (just the NES and Master System titles), Zelda: A Link to the Past and Oracle of Seasons, Metal Gear 1 and 2, Metal Gear Solid VR Missions and Ghost Babel, skate, Super Mario Bros DX, Soul of the Samurai, Tenchu, Bushido Blade 2, Samurai Shodown series, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy 7.

As a developer with very little experience, I would like to try to create games that build upon simple ideas and use them in creative ways, attempting to make for an interesting, challenging, and fun gaming experience. Due to my only experience with graphics staying within the low-res areas, my goal is to present these games with a retro art-style that can still look good by today's standards. My personal interests in martial-arts, parkour/free-running, and skateboarding have played a huge inspiration in what I've made and plan on making.

In this community, I hope to come across some more gems and hopefully contribute a few in the near future. I also really like to talk about video games...

I'm Matt Gardner, I've been toying with game design to some extent ever since the release of Klik & Play way back when.  (And a bit of BASIC stuff prior to that)

Since then I've been involved in several game projects and am looking forward to producing a game of my own if I can ever manage to get one finished.

I've done character designs for the first three Blackwell games, as well as the voice of Jim the replacement door man in the first one.  I also did animation work on Emerald City Confidential.

Currently working on my own adventure game, Party to Adventure, which I hope to be getting into proper development this year.  Also have a half dozen unfinished browser games, I very much suffer from the need to start a new project as soon as one shows promise of actually being completed.

However, as far as the internet is concerned, I'm far more known for my Floating Hands Studios cartoons.

Hi I'm Valued Rug, I make games.

I got started in the early 90's, the shareware days on mac. There were a lot of little games that you could open up and see how they worked. I was a little kid then, having no clue what I was doing. It wasn't until Bungie dropped Marathon right on my face that I started mapping, then later they did Myth and I did maps and mods for that too. Lots of fps maps and mucking around throughout the late '90's early 2000's. I went to college as an art major and spent a few years outside of gamedev, but always a hardcore gamer.

I lean towards fps and rts games, but I play everything "Western". I generally don't get into RPG's because I end up spending 80 hrs on the sidequests or grinding some stupid boss... I get too into the details and burn out on them.

In '04, I went to the guildhall, cohort 2. Basically, on the bleeding edge of game schools, before they were a "thing". I worked at several major companies on AAA games, and for the last 4 years, worked at a company founded by ex guildhall kids (now old men). We did mainly iphone and serious games, but aside from this prototype pc game, we never got to do the indie game thing, even though we were in on the ground floor of the app store!

That company recently got rid of everyone unfortunately. A sad part of the industry, but it always happens. Even (insert game studio here) will someday fold, mark my words.

For the time being, I have a small side project called  hatchlight, with a few of the guys. I'm finally joining in on the conversation here rather than just lurking around.

Our first game is already out (iOS). We are releasing it a Chapter at a time. At some point I'll start a wip thread for it.

Hi, my name is Esteban/Psycher. I'm a musician and a learning producer. I've been wanting to have my music be in a game for a long time now, but what I want most right now is to learn some new stuff from everyone here. I've made attempts at making an actual game myself, but they were usually failures which I gave up on pretty quickly. Nice to meet you all.  Smiley

Hi, my name's Luis and I've been coding for a long time but not long ago decided to start making games.
I did my first game in the mid 90s, source code (Pascal and Assembler) and a gameplay video here: http://ktulu.com.ar/blog/2012/10/10/janus/ (the post is in spanish)
You can see what I've published so far here: MulitaSoft.

Hey guys, my name is Lou and i've been in the industry for close to 10 years.  After 2 studio closings within a year I finally decided to give indie gaming a try.  I've also been a member here lurking for a few years and finally will have something to post.  Looking forward to being more active on the site!

Hi, I'm Michael / MFK  Gentleman

I am the linux porter of the cross-platform version of Indielib game engine, orginally done by Javier / Javilop.

Since Javier used to post here about his work on indielib, I thought it might be a good idea to lurk around here myself Smiley

Regarding the cross-platform version of Indielib, the binary releases of our new 0.5 version are ready here: http://www.indielib.com/tools/ if anyone want to check it out.

Hello, my name is Clayton Lilly and I am a java developer. I've been into making games as a hobby for a long time, and I've always been fascinated by games that use procedurally generated content. I released a game about a year ago for Android, and just recently ported it to Windows. It's a first person RPG set in a procedurally generated world. You can check it out at www.realmsoffortune.com.

Hey everyone,

Dropping my introduction here. You can call me Sam or h1ff. I've been playing games for over 25 years now. In the past year, I've started developing my own game - Galactic Council. It is a sci-fi deckbuilding/ccg type browser-based game that I have grand community-sourced visions for. I've been learning different aspects of software construction for just about 10 years now, so I'm really excited to be bringing my first game to the public.

So I'll list my big 3 favorites -
1. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
2. Super Metroid
3. Final Fantasy Tactics

Close 4th and 5th goes to D2: LOD and FFVII, of course. Glad to be posting here, I'm looking forward to further involving myself in the Indie Games scene.

Hey Hey,

My name’s Daniel and I publish games under the name Ruxar. I've been working on Windows Phone titles for the last year or two but have recently branched out to Android and fingers cross I should have my first game on Android in the next few days!
