I’m Currently in the process of designing a game but have one issue: I’m still a newbie to programming. I am looking for someone who is willing to help out and have a good time doing so.
I am looking for people who can be chill and relaxed, have fun developing but have the knowledge necessary to build from scratch.
I am also looking for Visual Artists, Graphic Designers, Sound Artists, Community Ambassadors, Testers and more!Message me or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
You are exactly correct, I am also focusing all my personal resources on the design of the game, I am personally not great at programming. I want to build it from scratch for some legal and personal reasons. All I am really looking for is a programmer and pretty much it. The rest I can take care of and I have an artist but he requested someone to aid him in creating assets. Glad to see a some questions and responses!
Mmm good luck finding someone. Most programmers have far more ideas of their own than they can work on, let alone someone else’s (unless of course its a job). Since the programmer and the artist will be doing 99% of the work I can’t see anyone just basically making your idea for you for free.
If you’re serious though, have you considered taking some time to learn programming? In the time it takes to learn and then make this game I doubt you would have found anyone. It’s really not that difficult and its a brilliant skill to have.
I’ve been programming for the past 3 years but It just hasn’t… Clicked I guess. Without being able to attend 1 on 1 courses It’s been far too difficult to learn effectively hence why I am searching for programmers.
I recommend a good book… it’s extremely rewarding. I have been in a situation where I could make models and mod games but not program and it was frustrating not being able to make the things I wanted to. Now I can do anything I want.
I only push this because I think ultimately this is the only way you will achieve this (unless you pay a programmer).
I also suggest to check other forums, there is some sort of game engines, that could be useful develop games with minimal knowledge to the programming, for example GameGuru(this one is for FPS), I think you might find something suite your genre, at least the minimal to proof the concept that encourage more to join.
I’m building a completely custom engine for legal reasons as I said above. As new as I am to programming I do have the knowledge to build the building blocks of a good engine. I need another programmer to help build up from the base, as it would be a far to large workload to do on my own with the schedule I have. I have been posting to other forums, though I’ve gotten… Negative responses and this is generally the most respectful one yet.
You see that jmonkey engine is under active development for many years by now and it still miss some (few) features you would expect on a modern engine.
It’s not something so trivial what you are asking for , and a thing you could clarify is if you want this for free.
And by the way, which are those legal reasons? Many engines, jme included are released on very permissive opensource license, i can’t see which legal issues you could have with a license that says “Do what you want. But do not pretend you made this.”
