Richard here!

This is me, probably plotting something.

https://flic.kr/p/2gGKgHQ

I've been a fan of games my whole life, my favorite being Ocarina of Time and Medal Gear Solid IV.

Anyhooo...Working at Windwalk Games in San Francisco, California. We are currently working on Enemy on Board, a social deception PC game. From our Steam page!

ENEMY ON BOARD IS AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL ONLINE MULTIPLAYER GAME OF DECEPTION.

Six crew members wake up on the spaceship Andromeda. During their intergalactic travels, two crew members were infected by alien spores. These aliens are now on-board Andromeda, disguised in their host’s bodies. The crew members must discover who the aliens are and kill them. The aliens must keep their identities hidden and kill the crew. Both groups must keep the ship in good repair or risk a critical system failure explosion, killing everybody on board.

We do playtests daily from 4-6pm PST.

If you want, I repeat, ONLY IF YOU WANT, please join our Discord https://discord.gg/gEm2Q83, and download our game on https://store.steampowered.com/app/999860/Enemy_On_Board/

Hi, I'm Veeti, a 17-year-old Finnish indie game dev. I'm currently starting up my own game company called Cafearatus Studios and I actually just launched my first bigger game, The Lovebirds. Hand Metal Right

I got into games in a very weird way. I actually hated gaming when I was a young kid and I never got it. My life basically revolved only around music and I got into writing songs and playing piano, saxophone, guitar, bass and drums at a very young age. Then my friends started gaming and I felt really left out and I STILL didn't start playing games myself. The only games that I'd tried were some of the 90s' and early 2000s' 3D games like The Sims, Rayman Revolution, etc. I'd also tried driving in GTA Vice City. I liked to look at other people playing games and listen to some soundtracks but I didn't have the patience to actually play them by myself. I made my dad play Rayman Revolutions through like 100 times so I could look at it. He did it and we had a great time so I really love that game now cause of the nostalgia.

Then I once played Mario with my mom's old NES and saw that games weren't always as advanced as they were now, so I kind of started developing ideas in my head about what this "boring industry" could look like in the future. A few years later I started playing and fiddling with small electronics, like connecting little motors to switches. I even built a doorbell for my room and some other stuff (with my dad's help, cause I was like six Cheesy) and I realized that programming is kind of like electrical engineering, but just digitally. By then I was like 7-8 years old so I was able to start connecting the dots and I realized that games are also made like that.

At nine years, I learned that one of my relatives was a programmer. I started asking questions about programming because it felt fascinating to me. He told me what it was and recommended for me to download Visual Studio. I started watching some basic coding tutorials and I wasn't really into it. It was cool to open my first program that said "Hello World" for the first time, but then I got bored and just continued making music. After a couple of years, I got into animating. I fell in love with Blender and I used it daily. I made music videos with my own music and animations. Sadly, I can only find one very crappy Minecraft animation now from those times, since the HDD that contained all of the animations got a bit wrecked... Sad At least I can see my progress by comparing that to my current skills Gentleman But making music videos started getting a bit lonely when your friends are playing with their PlayStations and I'm in my room, making music and animations... Oh if there only was a way to connect them so other people could interact with the story and sound design... Wait... Games... That's what games are!

That was ENLIGHTENING for me!

That was seriously the first time I really got people who played games. Well... maybe 10 years isn't that much...? But at least finally, I got it, and I started playing games with my friends. But I also started MAKING games FOR my friends... (Like very simple flash games). Years went by and I gained new skills and when the middle school ended, I went to Vocational College to study Game Development and here I am. Loving games and even more, LOVING every part of game development from the bottom of my heart.

Even though it all took a long time for me, I'm really glad that everything happened as it did. Now I'm able to make all the assets by myself. And as I said, I love every part of it. I still mostly play indie games because indie games are always the most innovative and creative games. Maybe because of the restrictions that the devs face without having a 100 person team with them? I don't know. But what I know is that I won't ever make a generic, boring game. That's why meta-horror is my favorite genre. I love to mess around with the players' computers. I love to see their reactions when my game suddenly opens up their optical disc drive and starts speaking to them with a speech synthesizer and showing custom Windows pop-up errors. Of course, it may be boring to other people but as everyone should, I'm doing it for myself! Smiley

I'm sorry if the story of my journey was weird and confusing, but so is life and so are my games Wink

Looking forward to getting to know to y'all! <3

Hi there! I'm Sibisi, an American graduate computer science student interested in game design and XR development. Some of my favorite games include Slime Rancher, Factorio, and World of Warcraft.

I'm planning to start a devblog on my final project, Corditia, a FPS-management hybrid set on the remote world of Kabash. The player takes on the role of a mercenary-esque farmer, whose job is to run and protect their crop of genetically engineered, ammo-producing plants from the vicious Conglomerate- a corporation-run government hellbent on controlling every other planet in the system. The weapons, ammunition, and supplies you generate benefit a ragtag resistance in the system, whose hopes for freedom lie on the shoulders of you and your cohorts on the planet.

It's a pleasure to be here, and I'm looking forward to the inspiration/criticism the community can offer.  Gomez

I'm an Icelandic designer/developer educated in computers, electronics and languages.
In the early 90's I was introduced to the Atari, on which I played space invaders, pac-man and similar games.

My first real gaming experience on the PC was a game called the Lost vikings, I also played many other dos games at that time.

I got my first and only console around the middle of the 90's, it was a Sega Mega Drive II.
That console inspired me a lot, I was mesmerized the first time I saw Sonic the hedgehog played at a store.
That said, I still played many other consoles over at friend's places, like the NES, SNES, N64, Sega Saturn and Playstations.

I liked playing outside and have generally been outgoing, I participated in waterfights in the 90's involving squirtguns
and travelled abroad to warmer countries for vacations. In most of the travels I visited places like amusement parks.

Early on I developed good art skills and continue to improve upon them. I was always interested in editing,
customizing and making games ever since I first found out about the concept of making or changing games.
My talents span a pretty wide spectrum of crafting. I've made clothes, accessories, electronic circuits,
computer programs (and games), drawings, wood carvings, sculptures/models, 3d prints and more.

Hey, all! I'm Sir Phobos from CareBot Games. We're a brand new team of two who just released our first game on itch!

As for myself, I'm primarily a programmer, but I love to draw, too. So I've done a little of both on our game. I'd definitely love to learn more about Blender and other 3D art tools in the future. That's my weak point, I think.

I started gaming when I was very young. I believe we had an Atari 7600, but I think I was too young to play at that point. We got an NES a few years later, and those are my earliest memories of playing games. I loved Ninja Gaiden even though I was terrible at it. When I got a bit older, I enjoyed playing Chrono Trigger and other JRPGs. Then I got into playing fighting games like Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike and Guilty Gear XX competitively. Learning to play those games was a great challenge, but I loved the process and learned about sportsmanship and made lots of great friends along the way. Nowadays, I'm into lots of different types of games: fighters, RPGs, puzzle-platformers, metroidvanias, and visual novels (a love which inspired our first game release).

Thanks to everyone else who has shared their stories in this thread, and I hope to chat with you all soon!

I'm Nicholas. Developer in N1C3K Games, which basically only contains me :D

I'm still quite young and currently creating some interesting games that hopefully, lots of people will play. My next project is a multiplayer co-op game.

At the moment, one of my games is published in the Play Store for Android only. The name is 'Wafer Fall'. Feel free to try it out and leave some reviews :D In summary, it is an endless game with the character moving downwards blasting through various environments.

That's all I've got! Thanks!

Hi! I am a wife and a mom now.
I love games. Especially cute games, but I've spent way too much time watching my husband play Counter Strike, Stalker, Dark Souls, Metro 2033, Witcher, PUBG and other "big boy" series. Me personally, I play everything Nintendo, even though they are not at all that big in where I live - Czech Republic. Everyone plays games on PC/PS4 here, really didn't find many friends with a common Nintendo interest.
I completely fell in love with Stardew Valley (of course), and all the "for kids" games on 3DS. I am not sure how you all be interested in that though.
My husband made me love games. And he finally fulfilled his dream and made one with his former colleague. I am the biggest fan of their work and dedication they've showed. It's not exactly my "cute, peaceful and loving games" genre, but it's soooo cool nevertheless. He spent 4 years developing it in his free time every night after leaving his full time job.
I've already promoted it, because I am way to excited to help them with getting people to know about it and hopefully like it as well. I am so amazed they actually finished and it's now being released after all those years of work! Several times it even looked, they might not make it and just leave it.
Sorry, I can't really think of anything else last few weeks... I am so proud Smiley

As a gamedev i am called "Radical Fiction" and the game i'm working on right now is called Hard Times, a survival game about being an homeless person in a big and indifferent city. It will release as an Early Access on september on steam.

Nice to be here!  Hand Metal Right

Hi the name is Jack. Jack Bandai am a small time indie game developer.What got me interested in games was when I seven I played Sonic the hedgehog on the sega. I was amused by the pixel graphics and well done animation.I started to wonder if It was possible to create video games.Then by eleven I came across Ultimate mortal kombat3 this game got me hooked with its fast paced gameplay and quick combos i loved this game so much I used to host tiny tournaments with my neighbourhood friends and we would play the game 12hours straight hours straight that my mom would tell my friends to go home cause it was late.It was only five years ago i begun my journey to game development I had rocky start as most of my games were unplayable you know bad controls ,bad gameplay etc.Recently I have become better at developing video games but I am still learning new ways of improving this skill and hope to develop amazing games.
Thats my story Jack Bandai an indie game developer currently working on a 2D fighting game at itch.io

Hello, you can call me Solace Shard. I'm aspiring to be an indie game developer. I've been playing games for ages, and have always been interested in making my own, though back then, I didn't have a clue how to actually make a game.

I enjoy a range of games from action, to platforming, to horror.

Hi everyone, I'm Nathan. I've been learning everything game development in my spare time for the last 8 years. Modeling, sculpting, texture painting, level design, narrative writing, programming and animation. For roughly the last 2 years I've been working on my first commercial project Dungeon Isles.

I was born in 94 and my earliest favorite games were sonic the hedgehog and crash bandicoot since we had a Sega and a PS1. I believe in 2008 I finally got God of War 1 and 2 and watching the behind the scenes to those games is what really sparked my desire to develop video games. Watching Unreal Engine 3 tech demos for Gears of War 2 drove me to sell my xbox 360 a couple years later to get a cheap graphics card (GT 430) and assets for Unity to start my game development journey.

I was first introduced to Blender in 2010 but didn't start using it or Unity till 2011 when Unity 3.3 was out. I tried starting with UDK to learn development but it was still too demanding for the family computer which is why I learned Unity and still do today.

I'm hoping to release a couple Pre-Alpha demos of my game this year along with a kickstarter campaign.

I'm shocked over 8 years of developing in my spare time that I never tried to join an online community and share my work. I'm excited to get involved and see what everyone's working on.

Hi Everyone,

I'm GlacierEclipse, previously known as crneumre (only known to me of course  Cheesy)

I've been developing small games for about 5 years now, and I am extremely interested in the tech behind games and game design. Most of my time was spent studying the tech part, from XNA and 2d flash games to developing my own OpenGL 3D engine in C++. But most recently I've started focusing more on creating games.

My most favorite games are: Inside, Infamous, Assassin's creed 2, Hollow Knight, Antichamber, The Last of us, Factorio, Papers, Please and FTL. Might look like a weird collection but each one did something that was extremely memorable and innovative to me  Smiley

You can check out my games on: https://glaciereclipse.itch.io/, and a game on: https://armorgames.com/play/17831/isolated-subject

Been reading and lurking around the DevLogs section for quite a long time, that's what got me to sign up and want to participate in this community.

Hello,

My name is Danya and games are pretty much my free time activity, either playing or developing them. I don't have a huge backpack of experience with developing games but I am currently planning a big project to make on Unity, a space adventure game

I did some projects which included programming in Python, PHP, C++, and HTML but I'm still learning a bunch about programming.

I've been practicing art for around 3 years now and finished some courses on it, so if you need me to draw you something, hmu. Currently working with 8-bit style graphics.

Here is some of my art Smiley

https://imgur.com/gallery/SlTxXul

I'm hoping to get some insight into what other people are doing with Unity and how they solve some problems that I'm sure I am going to stumble upon.
