First off, good luck to all the participants, myself included! :B
I thought an introduction thread might be fun, and as far as I can tell there's no rule against it. With the same spirit I'm gonna keep the vibe here pretty loose, so here's some examples of things you could share:
- Skills (Coder/Artist/etc)
- Some personal background
- The game mechanic (or verb) that's driving your current inspiration
- What you're working with
- What you want out of this experience
That said let's try to keep away from giant walls of text ;)
I'm hoping this thread will make people feel more pumped and part of a community; which in turn will hopefully result in better entries and more collaboration.
Without further ado I'll get my one out of the way,
So hi, I'm Hadbabits. I've been a semi-lurker in the GamingOnLinux community for several years now (and wrote a couple articles).
I'm a dabbler, and see myself as both a mediocre coder and artist. Partially I just want to complete a project for once, but I'm also hoping to get some good practice in both areas, and eventually develop enough skill that I feel I could contribute to a team. As it stands my creative vision far outweighs my current capabilities, so I'm definitely going to be tackling this project solo. Which isn't to say my creative vision is good, but that I would want more creative input than I feel I can justify.
I'll be using RPG Maker MV because I find the many restraints and limited possibilities makes it easier to start creating. I also like the challenge of making a game in RPG Maker that doesn't feel like a RPG Maker game.
So that's that! I look forward to meeting the competition, and wish you all the best of luck :D <3
