Hi I'm a self taught developer and dad of 3 young kids. I created Wide Awake Pip (a speech-based game for kids - if you're interested it's here: https://wideawakepip.com).

I'd love to get feedback and thoughts from this community.

Many thanks

Hey I am Andre,
Worked 13 years at a casual game publisher/game development company.
And now I've been on my own for awhile. And in the meantime made 2 games for PC and macOS in Unity.
Currently working on the android/ios verions of my 2nd game.

I am doing everything on my own, only using some sound effects and music i bought in my games. And doing all the programming/art/release stuff and marketing myself.
So I'm solo developer Smiley

I always used to make games during my school days, but used to use graphics from existing games.
For me was more just the challenge of myself, to see if i could do it.
Back then i did everything myself, no code leaching of the internet, and scripting stuff together.
(I still do for the most part).
I like to think and solve things myself Smiley

The nickname DexteR is from my time in Doom I~Quake3 time, where my friends called me dexter from dexters laboratory.
Since i had so many computers in my room Smiley 

Cheers,
Andre (DexteR)
DexteR Games.

Hey all!

My name is Moussa, and I'm a designer from Switzerland. Been in the industry for over a decade, mostly on triple-A titles - you might've played a few (EVE Online, Far Cry 3, Watch_Dogs, Assassin's Creed Origins...).

Went indie with a friend in 2017 and we're currently working on our first PC game after making a few games for mobile. I guess I'm a duo-developer (as opposed to solo)?  Who, Me?

Other than making terrible jokes, some of my favourite games include The Last Ninja (and too many other Commodore64 games to list...), Doom, the Civilization series, Quake III, Diablo, Papers Please, Portal 2... Too many!

My goal going indie is two-fold:
- Learn and improve on the other skills required to make a successful game (beyond the 'making' part)
- Find and hone my voice as an author

 Gentleman

Nice to meet y'all!

Well you don't have to include them all like a punch out card.
If it's for strangers, how bout sharing a game that nobody knows about

Hello!

We are 15 Minutes of Game, a small nascent indie studio from Melbourne, Australia. We've been playing games since the glory days of DOS and love all things point-and-click adventure, old-school platformers, FPS and survival/crafting/exploration.

We have a background in youth work and education and support people building their own games through our education programs.

Our first project was I Want To Go To Mars https://www.15minutesofgame.com.au/mars, a storybook adventure for kids and parents.

Our latest project is Trash

, an exploration/puzzle/crafting game set in a post-human world.

Looking forward to contributing to this awesome indie community!

Hi! My name is Jami. You may have worked that out, already.

I make games in my free time (been a gamer since I was a child). Thanks for reading!

Hi,

My name is Mike and I’m creator and worker of one-man team called Spikeprojects. I love to create graphics, animations and games.

Since I can remember I loved creating different characters, comics and other stuff like that.
I always liked batman, x-men, anime, manga and japanise games. My beloved is of all times are Silent Hill series 1 to 4, Deadly Premotition, Conker Bad Fur Day, Zelda, Banjo Kazooie, Burnout 3-4 etc.

One of my favourite genres are visual novels. I think that Divi Dead encompasses the best and the worst aspects of visual novel.
Erotic threads are totally unnecessary destroying deph of great plot.

I tried to learn different languages like java etc. But writing lines of code worked on me like reppelant.

Now my new objective is creation of Sci-fi game called "Singular Exotic Matter" https://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=70449.0

Welcome guys Coffee

I suggest reading through Mockups, or the "Please say this is going to be a game" thread, there's a lot of great ideas worth remembering and learning from.

also GIFs of games being worked on.

Hi,
I just recently began my journey into making 3d game art and animation for my own company.
I'm a bit more technical as an artist, and I do like to work with animations a lot.

Hello everyone! Pontus Björkberg here! Been dreaming about making games since 2010 when i realized i loved programming and started playing around with Unity, which led to me making my first "game" a year later (https://www.kongregate.com/games/BirchMountain/the-quest-for-a-merry-christmas)

Since then i've been hard at work trying to get to the point where i could actually make something worth playing, started my master in Game and software engineering, but "quit" just before doing my thesis to start my own indie studio, www.attractive.se, with some friends. That was three years ago and now we are just a month from releasing our first game! And we are way overdue, but it's time for real feedback Wink

Look forward for Paper Games early access in a very near future  Gentleman

Creator of Commando Jack

Hi All,

I am the founder of Colossal Games and creator of Commando Jack.
I initially started getting into games development when my friend showed me how he builds PCs and plays on them. He played a game called Unreal Tournament and bought graphics cards from Nvidia, all very foreign to me back then. I found out the costs and got a job at a pizza delivery service while I was at College, so I could afford to buy parts for a PC, until I had the whole computer built. I only spent £1 per day on food and I walked to and from College to save additional money, until I had built my own PC.

I ended up beating him at Unreal Tournament, then becoming number 2 in the world (according to the WW UTStats) for Low Grav Instagib CTF on Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004. I soon got bored of playing the same maps over and over, so I learned how to build my own levels, host my own server and play them. Some of my maps reached the top 5 most played maps of all time & are still played today.

Since 2004, I have come a long way in games development, but to keep it short, my crowning achievement was building Commando Jack (originally made for Mobile), getting it published by EA Games Chillingo, and getting over 10 million plays. This was my first published game.

I have since been struggling to get enough money to continue making games independently, but I don't give up the fight.

I found this forum by reading the Indie Games Developer Handbook (great book) and was surprised how awesome this forum is.

I hope that's enough of an introduction, I skipped a few years, perhaps a decade, but yeah hi everyone!

Hello all,

My name is Tom. I live in the UK, and I'm an indie game developer.

I've always been a massive fun of complicated puzzle games, and never miss a board game night with friends. Although I wouldn't turn down a good RPG game either.

Since I was young, I had my own ideas of how game dev should be like. I've recently starting working on my own programming language for video games, and I've already started releasing games with it.

A close relative of mine is a painter, and as I was growing up, I wanted to treat game development like drawing on a canvas. I still have a lot to learn, but always enjoy seeing other people's approach.

Looking forward to interacting with all of you Smiley
