Ok, so, I’m sure you’ve seen those videos on youtube, where a handful of gamedevs just take turns with the game, with a time limit. I thought, that would be fun, so here I am. I would like 4 other devs, who volunteer, and we will each get 2 turns (i will be last, besides that order of volunteers is the order of turns). We should limit ourself to 1 hour apiece, adding stuff, kinda building the structure for the game. No communication whatsover. When we finish, private message the next dev the google drive link via the forum. Let me know if you are interested!
Ps, all devs will be credited, so let me know your gd username.
PPs , if you volunteer first, wait until we got all the volunteers before starting, and don’t use any possible ways to communicate (or ill be sad)
Ok, yes, you can name stuff, like objects, variables, event groups, maybe comments, but nothing that gives the next dev(s) a definite hint as to what they want them to do, such as direct messages that say “i want this to be a tower defense game”, or “maybe add some powerups or something”, that sort of thing.
Another bonkers (in a good way) idea from Inusitatus !
This is something I truly admire about you: your unconventional out-of-the-box thinking, as well as your willingness & daring to carry out these wild escapades!
I’ve got a few remarks. I’ll structure them so they’re easy to follow.
Will I participate?
Short answer: I’m afraid not. Sorry…
To straighten the record: I wish your project the absolute best, & I have no doubt that this project will not only be fun, but also that the outcome will be spectacular!
Currently I’m Far too busy, not only with developing Loner, but also with my personal art projects. All that’s Besides my c̶r̶a̶p̶p̶y̶ full-time job .
I’m genuinely not a good fit for a project like this. When it comes to creativity I’m Fiercely independent, & am Physically incapable of compromising my vision once I’ve formed an attatchment to an idea .
Some constructive criticism…
To be clear, I’m not criticising your character, in fact I think you’re a genius! I’m simply pointing out (what I perceive) as a flaw in your plan.
Personally, I think you should have already had another 4 or more devs in mind Before you proposed this idea. You could have circumvented this waiting around. Regardless of whether or not the wait is an issue for you, it could be an issue for the devs who’ve signed on.
I suggest trying to get @Shark_Chum onboard, perhaps .
In any event, I think you guys should get started as soon as you’re ready. Even with 2 or 3 devs, I believe this project will be plenty challenging as is. Also, you can continue to accept newcomers.
I wish I could be more helpful, but for what it’s worth you can always count on having my Full moral support .
@NT_exe has been a dream to work with on developing Loner . Under different circumstances, perhaps you’d be willing to work with one/both of us in the future ?
@Fyrebrand_Gareth , I do not think I would be able to do this project. I only have a tablet (edit: I have a computer now) to make games with, and Jesse and the Fragments of Imagination is plenty enough. I wish everyone luck, though!
Hmm mr floax doesn’t seem to be online currently… Does someone want to maybe switch turns with him? That way we’ll get the first turn done faster and likely establish an order that matches our availability times.
