I'm considering working with some other people for this jam- if you feel like joining me, then just email me at: dvd121200@gmail.com and tell me a bit about yourself. All are welcome! Artists, programmers, writers, or anybody else!

Note:

I'm going to be using Unity, so I won't really be able to join programmers that use any other engines or tools for this Jam- just a heads up.

Out of curiosity, would it be 2D or 3D graphics?

Because Unity doesn't always equal 3D.

I was thinking about doing a 2D top down roguelike (RPG, probably?) for this one- currently trying to understand the map generation technology.

And yes! Cuphead, Galak-z and Broforce are great Unity 2D titles- and examples that Unity can have amazing 2D games.

Generating maps can be quite difficult. I spent some time programming a procedural generator for 2D side-scrolling games with support for saving, loading and sharing presets. You can check it out on my website (www.luukdomhof.com). You could be able to data mine it for the code, make sure not to copy it though! :) It will take you quite a while to program something like that, and since you're still trying to understand it, it will probably be even harder.

Thanks a lot of the offer, Luke!

I really appreciate you allowing me to check out your hard worked code- I'd love to take a look at it in the future (or maybe even once or twice during this competition) and learn more about procedural generation from it.

However, I was planning more on a top down approach- and yeah, it takes time to become better at procedural generation- but hey, that's what makes it so fun, and that's why we're here (;

You seem like a good guy! :) Want to add me on Skype? Maybe we can help one another with some things, having developer contacts is never a bad idea ;) Also, I can just send you a copy of the code if you wish :) My Skype name should be 'djluuky' (without the ' ofcourse).

Sent (;

Thanks for responding! I'm no programmer, but I'd be happy to lend a hand in the art and visual department if you have a need for it.

I have different styles I can do, and would pick based off of which would best fit.

Sure! that would be great- since it might help me focus on other aspects of the project such as coding it or writing events :D

If you want to, you could mail me your Skype name and I'll be more than happy to add you and discuss the project with you!
