Why, hello everyone!

I'm Pedro Gabriel and I publish games under the name Pidroh.
I'm from Brasil, I mainly like JRPGs, I started making games when I was 11, 12, with RPG Maker.

I love programming and I can also scrap by on some art. Most of my games are for Android, but I have an Iphone title and some PC titles, but they are too amateurish. I'm trying to step up my game though, so I come here to interact and for feedback! My only really successful title has been Dragon Sky Rush for Android, which is a bit of a Dragon Ball Z parody-shooter.

My dreams are to be able to live only by making games and to make a game that can make a lot of people cry.

That is all!

I have played video games since before I could read, but have only just now gotten into trying to actually make them. Since I'm 24, I'm a bit of a late bloomer in that regard.

I plan to start with retro consoles (I have recently released a few games for the Atari 2600) and eventually move on to something newer. I hope to be able to come up with interesting game concepts and not fall into the trap of making pointless or tedious interactive "noise" just for the sake of making a game.

Hi, I'm Dustin, long time TIG Source reader, first time forum post...er.  I've been programming for about 13 years, developing/designing games for about 6 years, and playing games since my first computer.  (TRS-80 baby!)  I'm a graphic designer who became a programmer. (left brain vs right brain, fight!)  Over the years, I've made games for EA, Hasbro, Atari, name drop, name drop, Yawn, who cares.  Now, I want to be able to say I've made games for....me.  MadRuse Games is my indie game studio that me and a friend started.  Here is a game we are working on called Vortex: http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=32500.0

Hi everyone!
I'm Daniel and I am 22 years old. Currently I study Creative Computing in London which is where I live as well!

I got into games when my dad got me a SNES for my sixth birthday. My favourite games at the time were Zelda 3, Super Mario Bros., and Mario Kart, the obvious more or less. Smiley I am still a big fan of retro games today, but I enjoy modern games just as much. My current favourite is the new Tomb Raider, but I pretty much enjoy everything as long as it is Action Adventure or something related.

Programming has been one of my biggest hobbies for quiet a while now. I started with "The Game Maker" - a basic dialect when I was about eight and explored quiet a few other programming languages during my time now.

At the moment I am working on a project called Tales of Hymna (http://toh.stockerdesign.com) which is an RPG in the style of Zelda and want to present it here soon.

If you want to have a look at my previous projects, I would like to point you to my portfolio site. (http://www.stockerdesign.com)

Well I guess that's about all. Wink

Hi everyone,

I'm the designer of upcoming indie title called Prisonscape. Not many of you have probably heard of it (hipster!), but we've been doing development for a while now. Since I'm a bit lazy, I'll just copy my introduction from our website (www.prisonscape.com):

"My name is Pekka and I’m the game and story designer for Prisonscape. I’m currently working as a researcher at University of Tampere where I study multimodal user interfaces. When Tuomas asked if I wanted to get involved in creating games, I was immediately interested. I have a long history with roleplaying games both as a DM and a player. I want to study gaming platforms as a way to tell stories and create emotions. I’m also interested in creating dynamic worlds where the player’s actions matter and where decisions have different consequences.

I draw inspiration from movies, books, recordings, games and from day-to-day scenarios. I want to create realistic characters whose personalities are more in the shades of grey instead of black and white (good vs. evil) you traditionally see in RPGs."

I'm the guy in the back, and the other dude is Tuomas. He's the coder for Prisonscape.

Hi! I'm Bryan, I'm a full time software developer by day, mostly boring businessy stuff, but I've been dabbling in game development too off and on for a while now. I haven't finished anything worth bragging about yet, but hope to soon!

I'm looking forward to getting more involved in this community. 
Thanks!

Hey!

 I am Matouš Ježek from Brno, Czech Republic.
 I worked as designer in 2K Czech (Mafia II and couple other projects) for more than 4 years. Last summer I left the company to start something on my own. With few of my former collegues we started an indie project.

 My roots are in storytelling (worked on several pen and paper RPGs before). I love to work with narrative from many different angles and always trying to find ways how to deliver meningfull experiences through game interaction.

 Things got changed since there are no armies of artists and programmers producing my ideas, despite that I quite enjoy life of indie developer - I mean crafting game from bottom to top Smiley

 Don't hesitate to wisit my website, if you are interested.

 If something from my experience is useful to you guys, I will gladly share with the community.
 Cheers!

Hi Everyone!

I'm Germanunkol, an electrical Engineering student.
I started hacking together games when I was 12 and was stuck in that I-m-making-the-next-awesome-great-game for quite some time.
At around 16, I started doing more serious work and taking some coding courses. We got together into a small team and started to create CSiS, a fast-paced multiplayer space combat game. Of course, because it's multiplayer and because our choice of engine was never the best, it took ages to get running, but we're almost done with the next beta now, we hope to release it in the next weeks.

Every now and then, I get around to doing some work in Blender or Gimp, but I always tend to loose the patience:
Flying Thing
Spaceship internal WIP

Lately we got stuck working on CSiS and in the meantime, I decided to more experimental stuff.
That's how two more recent projects came to be:

Wiki-Based-RPG:

A text-based adventure game
where words that you have to use in your story are automatically and randomly generated from wikipedia-articles. This results in some crazy stories... Multiplayer only!

And the most recent project, trAInsported:
(On indieDB)

This one is pretty experimental.
The players have to write artificial intelligence that controls the trains during the course of the game (pathfinding, decision making etc). Once done, you can upload your AI to the official site which will make the AI compete agains other player's AIs in live, online matches (that you can also watch and follow). Statistics are saved and displayed on the website (also in animated auto-generated svg-goodness!)
The game teaches some basics of Lua to get players started.

I've been hanging around here for a while every now and then. The reason I'm registering now is, I'll be honest, that I'm stuck with that last game. It's basically done, there's some tweaking to do but all the features are implemented. Now, I wrote to multiple sites and none of them have responded. I do realize that the game's a very "niche" type of game... but indie-sites usually love those, don't they?!
Any hint on how I get to get more attention for the game would be appreciated. It's open source and free, so I don't care about huge press, but I want to at least have more players. I made a game thread for it... feel free to discuss the problem there! http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=32578.0

Besides gaming I love art, basketball and foreign cultures... which is why I'm studying abroad right now. I'm also a Treckie and have always wanted to make a big and juicy space game RPG. Maybe. One day. :D

There. That's me.

Germanuknol: Was Wiki-Based-RPG inspired by Zach Barth's Wikipedia Quest? It's quite a cool idea.

Hey, thanks! Smiley
No, I never heard of that game... Just googled it, it's awesome!

I meant to do WikiBasedRPG for a game jam, but we ended up doing something else. Then I got home after the event and started coding, cause I liked the idea so much.
As it always is, the base (communicating with the wiki) was done after that one night but the rest took much longer - text formatting/input and locales was a pain in the a**... In fact, locales don't really work yet because the engine doesn't support all non-standard keyboard keys...

Hello everyone! My name is Ale (short for Alejandro) and I'm from Argentina. I work in marketing and I'm also a freelance photographer but here I'm mostly a gamer who decided to try and make games. As for now, I don't know a lot about programming but I like to think about myself as a fast learner and a hard worker (don't we all, haha.)
My fav franchise are Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid, I love indie games, old games, demakes, well almost everything!

I'm hoping I'll meet some of you through the forums and learn a lot. Gentleman
Bye!

Hi all!

Sorry before because I made this as my 2nd post (which means I first posted without introduction because there's one attractive thread.. nevermind).

Well, About me? my name is Arly from Indonesia. I've been messing around with computer since 1999, but I started programming at 2005. During those times I enjoyed playing around with 3Ds max, Photoshop, and related stuff.
Since 2006, I worked as web developer (freelance) and application developer, and now I'm focusing on game development. Here's one of my old public work on Flash with childish art ever: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/505773 . I also made a game with a friend to learn how to get into Apple's App Store. The administration took me 2 times longer than the development itself and it was stressful. I'd love to give you the link but I want to respect this thread as its a commercial work.

So how do I get into games? once upon a time ... (seriously its a long story)

I get into games because I played SEGA when I was 5 (such indoctrination..) and got involved with SNES due to my friends back then to play Contra and some circus game I don't know what it is called, but I never owned it. My favorite in SEGA was Sonic and Top Gear, also an action adventure game like Double Dragon, Yoshi, oh not to forget a memorable space shooting game from Japan called Verytex (try typing this on Google Play search and you'll get an error, seriously).

When I went to 5th grade, I finally got my first Playstation. Gran Turismo was my super favorite and I also enjoyed finishing my sister's RPG game like Suikoden series, Final Fantasy series (7 ate 9), and more. More other games I play were Resident Evil, Dino Crisis, Fatal Frame, Alone in the Dark, Silent Hill ... why all the horror games? When there's a family gathering, me and my sister usually invited all the kids/cousins to watch/play it in a dark room together and have them scream loudly that worries the parents. Well I guess that's enough for game consoles.

For PC, I was attracted into it when I was in 5th grade and ruined my computer many times. But it helped me on how I can make a clean install of Win98 (the technician taught me). It was a precious experience, including my parent's rage. The computer game that almost failed me on my test to junior high school was Roller Coaster Tycoon and Transport Tycoon Deluxe. It was an amazing sandbox game I ever played. On and on I started playing FPS games like Counter-Strike and then went straight to an MMORPG like Ragnarok Online.

I also once played traditional games like gundu/kelereng ... what am I talking, really. I played Pokemon trading card game, it was one most awesome experience as well, having my best deck beaten by a random uncalculated deck just because my opponent always got an approx. 95% head every flip coin and crushes my entire bench each head, it made me want to make better card combinations. But that's where I learn that these are the power of social trading card games, where there's an unlimited time and space for a Player trying to be the best of the best, and I was on that trap, but I don't mind because I was what people call fans and the game is indeed great. (I really should stop talking like this).

I also enjoyed my moment playing every color of Pokemon up to Gold. I also enjoyed the moment I'm playing a versus game with GameBoy through cable data with my friend, where MewTwo vs MewTwo battle will never last and we decided to get some ice tea instead. There was another moment I can trade with myself with Pokemon Blue, Red, and Yellow trick that it crashed my whole game and corrupted my save data. But trust me, I never give up that it happened twice. But finally made it work the third time.

My passion? Specifically to game, great is just not enough, I want to produce entertaining, and inspiring games. Allow me to derive more; in my country, we, game developers, are desperately in need of inspirations and advanced technical guidance that we don't have locally, and we are actively moving forward by our own, even our local customers aren't yet into our games up until now so we have to fight ourselves outside the country, and thank God there's internet and Flash as a start. Developers we are now are heavily influenced from outside works (like from US, UK, and Japan) and so here we are now into the field; because of passion in games. Even a little inspiration starts a motivation to keep moving forward.
Entertaining? I saw my parents were so skeptical about my work in this field that they questioned me and even got mad at me many times. And then I showed them one of my game that can make them laugh to each other and was enough to change their thoughts to start believe in what I do? well that's powerfully entertaining for me.

My passion ain't gonna happen without ya'll, and I'll be happy to hear from you and be part of this community to help on whatever I can do. Smiley

What makes me tick? You've read my stor :lol:y, it's in my blood. LOL just kidding. :D

SO THAT'S IT. I hope it's good enough as introduction. Cheers! Smiley

Hey Everyone-

My name is andrew and I am just getting started. I am trying to finish up graduate school, but becoming much more interested in games than engineering. I am interested in Kinect development and level design. Was going to lurk for a while but this thread was up to page 413, which is my birthday! Had to post. Hope to see you around.
