LOOKING FOR A TEAM :)
1. Hi there! What's your name? Want to introduce yourself?
Wazzup. I'm Tony, I'm a screenwriter. I've done a solo skydive. I'm writing a movie, a game, two TV shows, and some comics right now.
2. Did you participate in the last jam we held? If so, what do you plan on doing better this time? If not, what's your reason for joining?
So I missed the last jam due to other commitments, but I wanna get gamemaking now!
3. What games are your favorites? Did any of them inspire you, or made you want to make your own?
Uhhh, FEZ, Bioshock, Journey, Bloodborne, Last of Us, Arkham games, Halo 1-3, The Witness. Enjoying Animal Crossing and Alien Isolation right now. I can't pick out any one game that made me want to make my own, but I'd say that a common thread through most (but not all) of the games I listed is the inspiring writing/worldbuilding.
4. Do you have experience with game development? What did you do/with what engine?
So I'm familiar with Twine for interactive fiction writing and have a LOT of experience writing regular fiction. I co-run a website called scriptflix.co.uk where you can find a portfolio of my writing. I've also made several unreleased games with GameMaker, but am looking to learn Unity.
5. Tell us about something you're passionate about!
I love speculative fiction, scifi, and fantasy, although I rarely write fantasy. I guess what I'm really passionate about is making writing in games better; if we're honest with ourselves, the best written games, when compared to the best written movies, TV, or novels, pale in comparison. We have not yet in this medium had a seminal text with influence on all of culture as even comics has had with Watchmen, let alone the dizzying heights reached by the big screen's greatest auters. But someday, hopefully in my lifetime, it'll happen, and I want to be part of it.
So that's about it! I'll work with anyone, and I'd really like to work on a culturally diverse team (I am a default human). I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can reach out on twitter @tonyjeffree.
